Another great weekend

One of my sons, Eric, and his family came from California for a couple of days. One reason was to visit us and the other to get Taylor's wisdom teeth extracted by the oral surgeon I work for. Nicky and Ellie also came. Ellie had a hard time warming up to her uncle....unless he had candy to share!

Nicky brought another Halloween project for us to work on. Taylor, smiling in back, didn't seem to be feeing any pain from the surgery. Katie, my granddaughter was a big help with the project. Everyone headed back home this morning. Our home is now deafeningly quiet and I miss all of them already.

Katie made the comment that our house was sure a lot messier than when they all came. But I assured her that I love the mess, the noise, the laughter, and the staying up until midnight talking.

Guess I'll start washing towels and bedding and maybe even get down to the sewing room for a few minutes....and look forward to their next visit.

Happy Quilting! Lynda

Sounds like a brilliant time. It's strange how we don't usually notice the peace and quiet until visitors leave. Your daughter looks just like you!

I suppose I could come visit next time I need a tooth pulled...but Amish town is closer...Glad you had a nice visit.

Almost any day is made better when the family can be together! Glad you had some fun. I can identify with how quiet it seems, too quiet ~
