catching up

Well, it has been a busy week! I have photos to prove it, but blogger won't let me post them. So, until I have time to figure that out, you will just have to take my word for it! It all started on Nov 15, when I went to Grandparent's Day at our grandson's school. We had lunch together and then I visited his classroom. The children sang a song for us and showed us their art work. It was fun and sweet!

The next day, I headed to Tenn for the weekend. I went to see our oldest granddaughter's school play and to celebrate our son's birthday. Our girl sang a solo in the choir at Friday night's performance and had a role in the play Sat night. She did a wonderful job! Her song made this Gran cry! She was definitely the star of the show as far as we were concerned!

Saturday, my DIL's family had their traditional Gingerbread House making day. The girls and I went for a while so we could watch them at work and the girls could help a bit. It was impressive! They really do it right! They make their own gingerbread and are so creative in their decorations. I sure hope I can post some photos soon. They really are works of art!

On Sun night, my son's in-laws treated us to dinner at Olive Garden to celebrate his birthday. It was delicious and we enjoyed being together.

I came home Mon and on Wed, our Tenn family came here. We had our Thanksgiving dinner Thurs with most of the family in attendance. It was a beautiful day, and even though some of us weren't feeling that great, we still had a good time. Good food, games, laughter.... made for a sweet day of family!

Our construction has gotten to the point where I will be separated from my computer and I will be sharing my hubby's laptop. So, posts may be sporadic for a couple of weeks. We are excited that things are progressing. Up to this point, all the work has been outside. Tomorrow, they come in the house. Now, it is going to be inconvenient! But, the results will be worth it! :-)

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. Hopefully. I will be able to catch up in the next day or two.

I will leave you with this line from a song I heard on the radio today...

        "the same pair of hands that hold the world, holds you."

I like that thought!


  1. Oh I like that thought, too. You have been busy lady. Sounds like some great events you've shared...

  2. I'm the first to comment! =) You answered at least one of my questions I asked you on FB - you haven't moved out yet. So y'all had Thanksgiving in WR? Glad you had a fun, safe, busy week. And it's only just begun...

  3. ah, the photo dilemma! I faced that a while back - and I am still unsure whether they're going to cut me off again. Yesterday, my daughter's blog disappeared and blogger told her it had been deleted. I got techy this evening and restored it for her. All that to express to you that I share your pain!

    Such a busy week we have all had -- now back to the routine of work and school tomorrow. Much to be thankful for; I am so pleased to hear about your family, travels, and efforts to connect with one another. Blessings to you in the week ahead!

  4. Whew! I'm tired just reading about your busy week. ha! Seriously, it sounds like you had a wonderful week ... I can't wait to see the pictures!

  5. I'm thinking you must have reached your photo storage limit through blogger...and will now need to an annual fee.

    You have been busy! It's all good.

  6. You have been a busy busy gal. I know you had a great Thanksgiving. sandie

  7. I like the quote you shared at the end, and want to carry it through the day with me.

    I also think your blog decor looks so nice!

  8. You have been very busy and on the go. Sorry Blogger would not let you post your pictures. Bet you had lots of fun though with most of what you were doing. Hugs

  9. I have a few moments to catch up as well and just saw that you must have a lot on your mind. I hope your day is going well and that all of the construction goes well so that everything will be back in place by Christmas. Sounds like you had a wonderful trip and time away!
