Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!
My daughter and I cooked all day and we are finally done. We made home made
cornbread stuffing, jello salad, Banana bread and two pecan pies and one pumpkin.
I am still recovering from surgery so she had to help with all the pre cooking. She learned
how to make pies today and stuffing and she did a excellent job!
She is coming over early tomorrow afternoon to help me with the dinner. Everyone
will be here except my number two son Chris and his family. My daughter in law
called me to say that she is having a baby too! So I am excited to have two new
grandchildren next year! One little boy due in April and this one will be due
at the end of July. Still hoping for that girl, so we have to wait until the
ultra sound to find out!!
Cheri's first homemade pies!!

It's a Boy

Yesterday my daughter Cheri went in for her ultra sound and she is having a boy! This will be three sons for her and five grandsons for me. I was hoping for a little girl this time so I could share my doll collection with. So now it's up to my son Chris for a girl. They have two sons and want another one so maybe they will have a little girl. I am happy with the new baby boy coming the first part of April! It will be so much fun to have a little one to cuddle and take care of. Justin, Cheri's 8 year old wanted a sister but Erik who is 6 said he only wanted a brother because he didn't want any barbies in his room! Lol They are both very excited to have a new baby brother coming to their house.

My First Post!

Welcome to my blog! I decided to start doing this while I am recovering from surgery that was done in late Sept. I am on restricted activity which means no housework for three months! No lifting, pulling or pushing! I guess I should be thrilled at the no housework thing but after awhile it gets old. I am not used to
not working so it's getting a little boring. I still have six weeks to go and should be doing much better just around Christmas time. I love to decorate for the holidays but won't be able to do all of it this year.
My daughter helped me with the Halloween decorations this year. We didn't get to the usual ones for the outside decore but did get a fall wreath for the door.
I will add some Halloween pictures later on and also some of the fall decorations that I put out this week.
