About four years ago, I met a sweet friend through this blog. She doesn’t have a blog, but after reading mine wanted to introduce herself and be friends. We started writing back and forth (old fashioned snail mail) and we’ve also chatted on the phone a few times. She is from Massachusetts but when she got married she and her husband moved down south. She is visiting her parents for a few weeks and is coming over to my house TODAY so we can meet face to face for the first time!
And guess what else? She has EIGHT children, all about the same ages as my seven! Her daughter has been writing with Grace and they are both very excited to meet.
Yesterday, my sister and I took her children and three of mine out to lunch. Then, we watched Ice Age 4. (fun movie)
After the movie, I went to Target to buy stuff for lunch today.
To feed 15 children (some are teenage boys!):
4 packs of hot dogs, and buns
40 individual chip bags
40 kool aid drink pouches
homemade macaroni salad (using aunt colleen’s recipe!) so yummy, I also used the healthy, whole grain pasta
I want to do something sweet…I’ll probably make brownies.
She told me not to stress out getting ready and I haven’t, but it’s been a fun few days cleaning my house! It’s amazing how I let things go, only to realize the fact when Important People are coming over. We’ve even moved out furniture! LOL Today I need to vacuum floors, walk around with paper towels and windex, and throw the stuff I don’t know what to do with in closets, but that’s it. I’ve got everything clean and the laundry caught up.
My camera battery is charging. She’s been reading my blog for years….I’m a little nervous….please pray, & send us your happy thoughts for a great day!
