Here is our sweet Emelyn at one month old. She is on a crocheted blanket that my good friend Michele made for our last baby. Speaking of Michele ....
She and her daughter are here for a visit. We have been friends since the 1900s! Our oldest children were born only 4 months apart. I even remember taking dinner to her house when her sweet daughter was born over 12 years ago.
Since then, we have moved several times, but always kept in close contact. They come for a visit for a week every summer and every winter. We look forward to it most of the year and we have our traditions that MUST be done each time. One of the winter traditions is making gingerbread houses, which we will be doing on Wednesday, Lord willing. (Pictures to follow.)
I'll be going now so we can continue yakking our heads off about all manner of significant matters, like homemade vs. store bought cake mix, but before I do, I'd like to give a shout out to my FW Posse. (You know who you are...Henny, Wezie , Jenn , KB, Alice.)
