The color scheme was orange (looks like pink in the picture), brown, & lime green. Mimi had all the decorations up and fresh flowers on the table before we left town so when M & M arrived after church on Sunday all they had to do was put out their food & welcome their guests!
Ernie even came to the Cruise In ~ his driver said to be sure you girls noticed he had his Bible, his seat belt fastened, and was in his booster seat. That's Ernie's little porsche!
Just picture this in Canary Yellow with Mimi behind the wheel ~~ Yep, 46 years ago that was me! 46 years . . . oooooh, let's move on quickly!! This time, Mimi went a cruisin' with Granddaddy in the little red car with the top down & my hair blowin' in the breeze . . . when I closed my eyes, we were 16 again! But reality hit when we arrived at the Cruise In and I had to "try" to get out of that little red car ~ not a pretty sight I'm sure! Oh, I almost forgot ~ it poured rain right after we got there. Granddaddy got the top up just in time!
A Little Sewing ~
And, some little one's Daddy came home for his 2 weeks R & R. I just couldn't let Miss Emily meet her Hero in plain ole clothes. See what she wore!
Her sweet Mommy found fabric just like Daddy wears and it made the cutest pillowcase dress. She carried the little purse in the picture below filled with all kinds of treasures to show her Daddy. I think the picture was blurry because of my tears. But I think she was quite a sight running through the airport with yellow ribbons flying from her dress and her hair as she leaped into her Daddy's arms!
This little shirt was a Memorial Day/July 4th surprise for her to wear for her Daddy when she talked to him via webcam. And the skirt was a "special order" from Miss Emily herself! Maybe she can wear this when she takes Daddy back to the airport.
Horseshoes, Fishing, Zipline, Swimming, and the Water Blob . . . Does your Sunday night service have all this?
The Youngest Generation
Dear Sweet Friends
Laughter, Music, the Smell of hamburgers, hotdots, & grilled okra and, of course, good Preaching!I have so many pictures I would love to share but maybe I'll just post them to the church's website since this post is so long already.
And the incidentals ~
Then there was . . . Tuesday Bunco, Wednesdays 2 for $20, babysitting for the A girls, weekend visit with the C girls, after-Sunday-night-church dinner at Panera Bread with the Brunsons, and Girls Night Out at the movies. We had a "Queen's" Movie Night planned ever since the 1st Eat Pray Love commercial aired which included dinner & the movie. But when the night arrived, we were down to only 4 queens and dinner wasn't in the picture any more (the life of a grandparent~~always on call). It was fun as always when the girls get together . . . lots of laughing mixed with a little gossip. Now the movie . . . well, it received good reviews from us because we LOVE Julia Roberts and besides who hasn't ever dreamed of just running away to bigger and better things? Plus it sure did help matters when we got the "senior" tickets even without asking (now why do you think that was 'cause you know we don't look like seniors, do we?) and our wonderful buttered movie popcorn had extra butter. Would we recommend it . . . well, yes, of course, if for no other reason than everyone needs a girls night out! Sorry no pictures for this, we were just so excited we forgot cameras!
Finally . . . I threw in a few chores--a little gardening, house cleaning, and laundry--while Granddaddy ordered new parts for his toy and worked on her every night. Plus you've seen the other entries this month including Taylor's send-off.
