Holiday Season

David and I have enjoyed a wonderful Thankgiving and I look forward to the remainder of the holiday season.

Greg and Julie arrived the last Saturday and will be leaving tomorrow.  It is always to GREAT to have them home.  They came home this year with the special surprise that July will bring us a new bundle of joy to all of our lives.  This will be their first child.  While they were home, Julie and I spent a couple of days at my favorite fabric store, Main Street Fabrics, in Ackerman, MS.  We selected the fabrics to create a coverlet for their master bedroom.  I made a sample square to make sure that we have the colors like she wants before they go back to Texas.

Clif and Becky have been working very hard to get their house finished.  David went over a couple of days to help out.  Clif and Nora Ruth came for Thanksgiving dinner.  Becky was not feeling well. Her delivery date for their second little girl is Tuesday, Dec. 1.  They will get to come home to a new house instead of the apartment. 

Angela and Ted, Lola and Julian also joined us.  Julian is still having breathing problems but is a tough little guy and is always happy. Lola had a great time playing with Greg and Julie's dog, Timber.

My Mom(81) drove over and to enjoy this great day with all of us.  She brought the quilt that she is making for Nora Ruth's Christmas present.  It is almost complete, only needs to finish the binding.  She does beautiful work.  It is hand quilted.  She completed one for Lola and Julian last year.  Now with the 2 new babies on the way, this year will be very busy for her.  It's great to have her so active at this age. 

As you can see, our life is great! I have a wonderful husband and family. God has blessed us beyond words.
Hope that all of you have had a special week.
