A new whole-house fan, and three (!!) rooms ready for guests.
Month: May 2009
Our moms made so much extra food for the crew on Saturday that we decided we needed some help finishing it. Besides, our table was already expanded. After church, we invited a bunch of people over, and got Devin, Rebecca, Nathaniel, Rachel, Matthew, Gloria and Max the dog. (6 out of 7 ain’t bad. We missed you, Bethany!). Danny and Anna came too, plus Bill and Janet and our new friend Trevor. They admired my family’s handiwork (and Rebecca’s–she was one of the many from our Bible study who painted the living room, dining room, kitchen, and hallway). We ate great food. And then there was silliness.
Max was happy:
John and Trevor talked blueberries in the comfy chairs:
Rachel did Gloria’s hair:
Matthew and Nathaniel had fun with magnetic poetry (the high school version):
Danny got swept away by the Mother’s Day carnation…
…which I then stole it to give to Anna, who had spent 2 hours taking care of 2-year-olds in the nursery and was therefore honorary Mom for the day. The stem snapped. Anna lost it.
Rebecca, a *real* Mom, felt loved. Mission accomplished.
