Another picture from work!

Every year at Thanksgiving my office sends thank-you baskets of Amish goodies to the companies we work with. This year we decided to have a picture taken to include in our Thankgiving letter we also send with the box. Our office manager joked around during a meeting that having our picture taken with a grain pile at the elevator would be indicative of this year's harvest. We started out with the photographer at the local pumpkin patch for the more formal, serious pictures. But, he thought the idea of the grain pile was pretty good. So, we headed over to an elevator we work with. This is one of the ornerier pictures we took of just the girls from the office.

Friends from Work

A couple of weeks ago was Homecoming in Arthur, IL...home of the largest Amish community in Illinois. Homecoming in Arthur is kind of neat. Everyone lines one side of a street to see one side of the Homecoming parade. Then, after the parade has passed, you walk over to the next street over so that you can see the other side of the parade. That way you can see people on both sides of a float. Kind of quaint, huh?

Anyways, I went with two friends from work: Bobbie and Genny. On the way back to the car, Genny was walking behind me, and I heard a voice all of a sudden say, "Kelly, can you help me???" I turned around, and Genny had walked underneath a branch and gotten her hair caught in a branch. True friend that I am, I said, "No, but I'll take your picture...hehehe!" So, I snapped away while Genny tried to wrestle her hair away from the tree.

Sorry for the bad pix...I've been meaning to edit them for a month and haven't found the time...or perhaps the patience!
