Hello out there! We have had a very busy week here. I will start with today though, because it was a special day! Our daughter Erika was baptized this morning at church. We sat in the third row, right behind her, but I took my photos of the big screen above so that I wouldn't have anyone else's head in the photos. Which was kind of hard to do, because I was trying to watch her with my natural eye, while taking photos, and then the tears began too.
Here she is, just as she is about to go under the water. Pastor is talking to her. I love the look on her face.
This is the new chaise lounge I recently bought. It is soooo comfortable!!! I am sitting in it right now as I write this post. That afghan is almost done. I will finish it before I start on anything else!
The quilt rack that hangs above the chaise lounge is holding a quilt that I made many years ago. I need to make one in the colors that I am doing in this room. On the shelf above the quilt are more favorite photos, and a photo of Greg's favorite golfer Ernie Els, that a good friend of mine who is a photographer, took last year at Pebble Beach for us. I bought the quilt rack at a cabin sale up in Big Bear a couple of years ago, a few cabins up from my Mom's place.
This is the largest bedroom in our house. Even bigger than our bedroom, but without the attached bathroom. So it works out very well for a guest bedroom that doubles as a playroom/den for us. When I find the comforter I want, I will be changing and adding some things on the walls. But for now, after working very hard on the wallpaper removal, wall repair and retexture, then painting, I am done for now.
Before wrapping it up. I am enclosing a picture from " Bar Night" the other night. This is not all of us, just the one's I could fit into this frame.
Oh and one last thing. Last night Geeps and I went to the movies with our girls. Just Genny, Erika and us. It was fun. Then we went to dinner at Panera. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening! We saw that movie with Tom Hanks, Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close. We all four thought it was outstanding! Sad, touching, thought provoking, and very well written and acted. Do go see it if you get the chance!
Well, I think that is about it from here. It has been a busy time, and there is still a lot going on for us. Good stuff. Good times. We are blessed!!!
