Hello and Happy Wednesday,
I am happy to say that I am feeling better other than a sore throat. I really hope that it goes away and stays away.
I want to Welcome TJ Davis. I really enjoyed reading about your family and how you grew up. It is really awesome to have come from such a large family.
Both of my parents came from large families. My grandmother (Maw) had 10 children. The first one was my Uncle Sam and he was born July 31, 1900 and my mother was the last of the children, the baby of the family and she was born July 31, 1925. They were 25 years apart. I just can't imagine.
My dad too was from a very large family. He was the next to the youngest out of 22 children from 3 wives.
I grew up hearing how his last wife poisoned him. Now that could just be a rumor, but he was a very mean man and from the stories told it was that the entire town was relieved that he was not with them anymore and the woman was never charged. If that story is true I don't actually know but remember the movie Fried Green Tomatoes?
Every time I see that movie I think of that man. I don't actually want to call him granddaddy lol.
We have been having some beautiful foggy mornings. I love the way things come out of the fog. Trees with their ghostly branches and people walking in the misty shroud. It's something beautiful and it lingers...
Thanksgiving dawned wet and damp, with a light drizzle in a very foggy morning. It stayed that way all day, and it was chilly out doors so it made staying in even better for a while.
When it finally stopped with the drizzle I bundled up the kids and took them outside.
I was banned from the kitchen so it turned out to be a great day lol. I did help a little. I started the lime Jell-O salad and I made it different than I ever had.
This recipe called for heavy cream and marshmallows. Where my original salad was more condensed, this one was light and fluffy and very delicious.
I didn't make my Elote Salad. We had so much food that it was ridiculous. But it provided several meals that we didn't have to cook.
The main chefs... Karyn and David. You cannot see the bar where more food lined the counter space. Our kitchen is tiny so not a lot of room for people to actually help.
Matthew, Adrian, Damien watching something on tv.
Nathan kicking back. He was very tired. He worked in the yard the day before and was just resting. He had a good Thanksgiving as we made sure that almost everything was gluten free. I thought that I had photos of Laurie and Cathy but maybe I don't. I wanted a group picture but I gave up trying to get one. They are such scrooooooges… lol.
On the 23rd my great niece and her husband was blessed with a beautiful baby girl...
All of those lipstick kisses... Someone was stealing sugar from our little girl!
She was very alert at birth. I love that she has all that dark hair. I really hope that she doesn't loose it. Both of her parents have thick dark hair so maybe hers will be nice and thick.
She was born the day before my sister Linda's birthday. We was hoping that she would have waited just a little longer but she was in a hurry to meet the world.
I was outside in the fog when my sister called me and sent me a picture of the baby at birth. Linda wanted to be there so bad but she was really sick and so she stayed home and out of the way so she didn't expose anyone.
As Linda and I were talking I was watching the moon try to come out of the foggy night with the billowing clouds and the peek a boo images. It had warmed up some but the misty fog was still wet and damp.
It is burning off and leaving beautiful blue skies for the last 2 mornings. I am enjoying it...
I better get off here. I have to get ready for yet another doctor appointment....
Take care everyone and have a Blessed Day.... BB
I'm glad you're feeling better. Looks like you had a good holiday. I haven't had a Jello salad in years, but I used to love them when I was younger!ReplyDelete
