Pittsburg Missouri

Finally, a post. I’m a bit behind so I’ll try to keep this brief so we can get caught up. p1030525

When we arrived in this tiny home in Pittsburg, Missouri, we felt right at home. The home sits on 3 lots and is in a location that is frequented during the summer but is very quiet during the winter. It was in the 70’s and 80’s when we arrived on November 28th. p1030526

Here the kids are playing in the leaves in the backyard. p1030523

Big, huge piles of leaves…. p1030515 p1030536

Enjoying lunch outdoors… we considered barbecuing, it was that nice out! p1030557

The three little’s fanning their toes…

All cozied up in a king size bed. I took this picture of them in the morning.  p1030549

Somebody else is sleeping…

Now he’s waking up.

I came out of the bedroom after taking a nap and saw them putting together a puzzle. I can’t tell you the peace we felt here after the hard month in Topeka… this place was a bit smaller but so very peaceful for our souls. It was so very quiet here… it felt like home.

… and we can’t forget Elisabeth’s picture she drew of her and Hannah having a tea party. We visited some good friends who’s kids invited them for a tea party.  They played all day long nad we enjoyed our time with our friends. Unfortunately I didn’t want to impose with my camera the first time and then when we met again, I forgot to bring it.  : (  p1030592

On Christmas Eve some very special friends came to visit us… Lloyd and Judy. She found our blog about 3 years ago, we have written and spoken by phone these past few years and now finally got to meet! They are from Kansas City, Missouri but are originally from this area so they had no troubles finding our home.  : ) p1030597

We enjoyed our time with them so very much and can’t help but have a deeper love and fondness for them. If the Lord had us live in Missouri, I’d live near them in a second. : ) I am so grateful for meeting Judy, she is dearer to me now that we have met in person. My regret is that we didn’t meet up earlier when we were in Kansas as they offered for us to stay with them for a bit.
