New School Books

100_3460 We received our new school books for next year.  This is always an exciting time for us.  We love looking at them to see what the next year will be about.  Of course, about half way through them they will not be near as exciting.  Oh well, enjoy the moment, right.  Temperatures have been rather chilly here.  30 degrees this morning with scattered frost.  Hopefully no damage done.  We spent the weekend at Jessica’s.  Saturday was her baby shower day.  She received many nice things but of course I forgot my camera, so no pictures.  Her mother-in-law got her a really nice bassinet.  She is going to use this upstairs in the bedroom for a while.  Then they will put up his crib.   We also celebrated Hubby’s birthday while we were there.  Hot dogs with all the fixin’s and birthday cake.  We had a great time.  As usual, though, it goes by too quick.  When we came home last night, it was pretty chilly in the house.  We hurried and built a fire.  We still have one going today but I think it is going to warm up nicely.  The sun is shining and it looks beautiful outside.  Hubby and I are going to get another load of wood while the girls stay here and work on school.  Dale-a friend from church- is bringing over his wood splitter this evening to let us borrow.  Thank you Dale and thank you Lord for provided us with such good friends.  We are truly blessed.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Doll Bunkbed

Hubby’s latest  project.  A doll bed for Barbara’s grandchild.  I hope she likes it.  It was a lot of fun making.  It fits the American girl dolls or any 18″ dolls.  We will deliver it this evening.  We are going over to our friends, the Horns, for tacos tonight.   The girls can hardly wait.  The ice storm predicted for this morning didn’t happen.  I’m glad.  Dave, Jess, and Daniel will be here tomorrow about lunch time.  I think we’ll have ham, baked beans, pasta salad and homemade rolls.  Maybe red velvet cake for dessert.  Sounds pretty good!  Guess I better get started on some of that food.  Happy New Year and God Bless.
