We went south for the weekend, stayed at HL & J's place, where we painted the nursery walls a cheery buttery yellow. I didn't get time to paint the trim but that's a great reason for a return visit in the near future! As if I need a reason! HL is feeling good, but getting tired as the pregnancy progresses.
The boys built the baby furniture Saturday and we couldn't be happier with it, the warm oak looks great against the yellow walls. HL helped select fabric for curtains and a crib skirt. I will make those up prior to my return visit. We are getting so excited!
Thanksgiving dinner was at L & A's. Their boys J & A helped set the 2 tables for the 13 of us. We feasted on turkey, ham and cabbage rolls along with the usual trimmings! Dessert was a real treat. I had baked some carrot cakes and brought those down and L made her famous chocolate fountain with fruit chunks! To say we were stuffed after that is an understatement.
Reflecting back over the past year, we are so very grateful for a healthy close knit family that supports one another through the good & not so good. As Marlene Dietrich said..."It is the friends you can call up at 4 am that matter". And this family is definitely friends!
