|Trouble in his nest on top of our utility shelf|
I did a little internet research and found an email address for the folks that own my Great-Grandparents old home. I emailed and asked if we could bring the Steel Magnolias (my grandmother and her sister) by to visit the grounds. I didn't want to impose - I'd be a little freaked out if someone asked to come into my house. They wrote back right away and said they'd be delighted for us to visit. I'm very excited at the prospect of our old girls being back at the home that was their mom's for 52 years and am working with my (second) Cousin Alisha (our dads are cousins) to arrange a time to go. I'm really surprised that we got such a quick and positive response.

Jim and the girls came and had lunch with us this afternoon. My sweet Jamie came down to watch a little bit of My Little Pony with me and since she wasn't going to be here long she explained how that particular episode ended up and told me I had to watch it until the end because I didn't want to miss the ending. Everybody needs a Jamie in their life. Sarabeth is also a hoot. She has a wry sense of humor and cracks us up all the time.
I did a lousy job taking photos yesterday but here are a few:
Cody was really happy to be here. I promise. Lily looks terribly thin because of her cancer. She is eating much better now but can't keep weight on her.
Sarabeth is now tall enough that I have to reach up to hug her. She's taller than me.
Charity was not angry. She was talking.
Our weather has been beautiful and mild. We've got a little cold weather coming in next week but for the most part, I think Winter is in the rearview mirror.
Hope you're all having a great weekend! Love and hugs!
