amanda came over yesterday

My sister came over yesterday morning bringing Dunkin’ Donuts and croissants.  She also gave me the fabric flower in the picture—she has one, too.  We can pin the flowers on for some bling.  So pretty!

At first, we sat at the table and ate our breakfast while looking at magazines and visiting with each other and the children.


This next picture shows the face Sarah makes when she feels unsure about being held by anyone but Mama. It cracks me up.


Aunt Amanda had to warm her up with some hugs and kisses.

Little Naomi adores Sarah and holds her so nicely.  Soon she and Sarah with be running around playing together.



So what else did Amanda and I do while she was here?  We rearranged the master bedroom!

This is a picture of what it looked like about half way through, after we had pushed the bed over to the opposite side of the room.


This is what it looks like now.  Rich loved it.  It’s fresh and clean and a much needed change.  I have a few more ideas in mind; a throw rug or two, a floor plant, and a nice piece of artwork for above the bed.



I loved having Amanda here!  Our days are crazy-busy but never too busy to take time to visit with a forever friend.
