My husband and I visited his parents last Saturday and I was able to snap some great pictures. The pictures below are of a persimmon tree that is in the yard in front of my in-law's house.

It is said that you can predict the winter by taking the seeds out of some persimmons and then slicing the seeds. Whichever shape shows up the most will tell you what kind of winter to expect.

The three shapes resembel three eating utensils:
A Knife shape means there will be a cold icy winter (as in the wind will slice through you)
A Spoon shape means there will be plenty of snow for you to shovel.
A Fork shape means there will be a mild winter.

We didn't cut one open, but a friend of mine at work said that her husband did and it was a spoon. So, if there is any truth to that, then we will be having a lot of snow! (Tammy and Erica, you probably don't have to worry about that much in Texas do ya?)

I Love Old Barns!

Our baby girl Holly turned one year old in October.

She is a good baby.
Happy Birthday Holly!
We love you very much.
