One hidden talent I've discovered about myself since I've started my real life is that I love to host house guests.
In August our dear friends the Truman's came for a night. Our little girls were thrilled to be reunited,and to have their very own sleep-over,while we parents celebrated Harry Potter's belated birthday, butter-beer style,and then journeyed the 23 minutes to Cove Fort for, well, Cove Fort Days. Then in September our dear friends the Croppers came for an afternoon visit. This of course included me sweatin' out a meal for one of the finest cooks I know (Mr. Feed Your Family) (though see down in the lower left of this pic...housewarming gift from these Croppers...and what a JOY it is!)
but mostly we just put Russ to work trimming our trees.
Happy Thanksgiving...and remember, I could be extending this house guest story in the near future...
