The eleventh month seems to be flying by. Somehow, a turkey needs to fit into cramped freezer space in the bottom of the fridge. Family is coming which means deep cleaning. Mama, bro and sis-in-law head south the day after turkey day so time needs to be spent together to say goodbyes. Sigh...when, and how does all this get done?
Emmy Lulu had a nice surprise the other day. Those of you who are regulars know that in Chapel Hill my grand baby resides, and she'll be four in early February. She found out that she'll be a big sister in May. Lord willin' and the creek don't rise that is. My own baby-girl isn't so lucky at pregnancy. She's had her share of heartbreak. Too many times. We are all cautiously hopeful.
She's three months now. Em told her parents that she wanted a girl...no boys! Frankly, she'll be thrilled to have a baby in the house as she loves dolls.
Jim's brother from Texas, and his sis from Colorado will be visiting the first weekend in December. His cousin will join us from North Carolina on turkey day as will my MIL. Son Josh and his dad will fly down to NC to be with my daughter and family T-day. The second weekend in December, I fly with cookie cutters and apron packed in my carry on to bake cookies with April and Emmy over a long weekend.
Lots to do in the next few weeks. Why does it seem that November and December are always in fast forward mode?
