The girls had been looking forward to Gillian's visit for a long time...they even dreamt about her last week. When they heard she was coming out for a basketball tournament, they thought maybe we could all go watch her play. What a disappointment that she would just be a spectator this time, and not out on the floor racking up the fouls! We wish you all the best at the Brandon University, Gillian...it doesn't sound like the studies are interfering with your social life.
We enjoyed a great smorgasbord of appetizers (forgot to take pic's of that!)...it's always fun when everyone brings something. Heidi loves sushi...so Broni brought a platter. I have to admit that I finally gave in and tasted sushi. I somehow thought maybe I could get through life without ever trying it and no one would notice. It was OK...what can I say?
Oh yes...and it seems there was some important game happening yesterday that couldn't be missed! When Dad arrived, he was wondering if we weren't planning on watching the ball game...he had been hoping it would be on. OK...why not? We had enough commentators on hand, so no sound was necessary!
I have no idea whether or not the right team won last night...but there'll always be another game. Young and old, it was so good to all be together. It's called family!
It seems my feet are sticking to the floor today...so I better go look after that.
Oh, it just looks as if you had so much fun. What a great space you have to hang out together in! Truly lovely.ReplyDelete
I see your counter, but is it working? Set to private? ??? Honestly, I am flummoxed.
Thank you! Your counter site was ever so much easier than mine. Better directions, etc., plus it actually works! Well, we'll see anyway.ReplyDelete
Oh I'm so glad that you had a wonderful time. The photos from above were a really good idea for a large gathering photo. It really gave a sense of your family togetherness.ReplyDelete
You have such a wonderful family... and your home is BEAUTIFUL! Happy Birthday to Heidi as well :)ReplyDelete
I loved that picture of Heidi on the hay stack! What a wonderful way to show us through your beautiful home.ReplyDelete
You won't believe what my next project is?? Not quilting, but crocheting an edge around a blanket for baby Maluga arriving at the end of November.....
