Good-bye hair

Grandpa Cope and Kathy came to visit after Logan and Ashli went to the Newport Temple and were sealed for time and all eternity. They stayed two nights with us and we had a good visit. They have been serving a LDS mission in New Jersey, so the kids hadn't seen them in 2 years. Kim and I got to see them last September at the airport on our way to Germany. As they were getting ready to leave, Karly announced she wanted her hair cut. I told her to make an appointment and go into the shop. She said no, she wanted me to do it right then. Thinking she would give up the idea, I reminded her I was blind and to have grandpa do it. He has had more experience cutting hair, since he use to cut hair at my Uncle Harold's shop back in the day, beside he had always cut all us kids hair at home.

She said okay and asked him and before I realized it Karly's hair was being cut with a razor blade.

Grandpa told her how to prep it for that much to be cut off, she did it and with a big grin on his face grandpa cut 9 inches off.
She looks great, grandpa had a good time and they have a memory neither will forget.

Thanks, Grandpa

Turkey Time

When do I eat mom?

The table was set and finally it was time to eat Thanksgiving at the Porterfield's!

Grandpa Porterfield and Grandma Jane rode the train down for the day.

Daddy carved the turkey and then we ate until it hurt!

After dinner it was the standard, rest, sleep, read, play games and then eat more.

Baking with Baysil

The day before Thanksgiving has always been baking day in our family. This year you can see who I got the most help from.
