Today I’m just going to give a little overview of a few things, and later in the week I’ll have some projects and purchases to show off. My sister Wendy arrived on July 22 and left the 31st. She is a workhorse and never sat down the whole time she was here. Not only were my dishes done and house tidy, but you should see the projects she did for me (you will, later)! She makes me feel like a slacker, but I don’t mind.
The first thing she did was help me pull off Skippy’s birthday party on the 24th. We showed a movie (Wall-e) in our backyard. Craig hung a sheet on the back of the house and projected it on that. We had pizza, koolaid, and cupcakes. For the movie there was lollipops and popcorn, and glow necklaces. It was simple, and everybody enjoyed it.
That Saturday, we picked up the new puppy. You know, getting a new puppy when you have a houseful of guests isn’t really the best timing. But it went okay. It took us almost a week to name her; none of the original choices were working. In the end, we chose a name Laurie suggested: meet Sophie! And no, it’s not because of Oprah’s dog; I forgot all about that until later.
Lila’s not sure what to think yet.
That same evening, my sister Laurie and BIL Wayne arrived, and the fun really began! Shopping, gabbing, lunch together at a lovely cafe, we even tried a little craftiness and made some Scrabble tile pendants.Well, almost. There’s nothing to hang them on a chain with, yet. But Wendy thought it would be cute just to have them in a little bowl or something on display. I just may do that; they were pretty quick to make, and I have tons of Scrabble tiles, more than I could possibly use for pendants.
It was a blast! Love ya, sisters!
