We are busy finishing a list of orders before Thanksgiving.
This table below is one that is on its way to Washington. Sure hope that she likes it. I have put my order in for one. We will see how that goes.
I will be hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year. We will have most of the family here at some point. One of our daughters will be away. Her family will be sharing the holiday with our son in laws grandmother in San Francisco. We see them quite often, so we will make up for it at another time I am sure. We had the grands here today for quite a while and had so much fun. they are getting to an age that they like to do so many things. I taught them to stencil, and they each brought home their own sign. Hey maybe they can help me out with the business some day. lol
So, I am making a list of the food that I need to prepare. Do you do that? Make lists? I have to!!
We have birthdays almost every other week this time of year. This picture is from my daughters 30th birthday party a few weeks ago.
(my daughters and I and my future daughter in law(on the left). Just missing my other future daughter in law)
Don’t tell her I told her age. She can’t be older that I claim to be! How does that happen??!!
Well, hubby also had a birthday …….
There is cake …….
and ice cream…….
and more goodies! Yikes!
Now this week our youngest son is turning 21.
Again~ where does the time go??!!
Now to get things in order~
AND~ I am not sure the I mentioned that our son has a new dog that he rescued for the local shelter. He is still in college and works as well…….so……. he is with us A LOT!!
Well I am sure that Christmas is going to be INTERESTING this year!
This is just a sampling of what ROCCO thinks is fun to do~
He loves to drag things into “his room” and ………well….. you can see what I mean. I am not sure I can put her back together again.
Oh and I am not sure that I have shared this with you either~ I have been asked to be a Mentor Mom for the Mops (mothers of preschoolers) group that my daughters are a part of this year. I am not sure why they have asked ME, but I am humbled to have been chosen. I think that my daughters maybe want me to distribute the “constant advice” that I share with them to others. lol
Well this week they have asked me and another mom to “share” some advice with the younger moms. There will be a few questions for us and then they will open it up to questions from the group. Remember a while ago I told you a little bit about myself?? And that I was very shy and quiet and wouldn’t read in first grade, and in 6th grade when we had projects to “present” that I was absent that day??!! Well…. talking and being in front of people is DEFINITELY NOT MY THING! Please pray for me on Thursday that I will be able to “do what God has called me to do” without “freaking out”. I appreciate all of your friendship. You truly are a blessings to me.
