so we were doing what all families do on thanksgiving morning – cutting down trees in their front yard (quick story: beautiful birch trees were diseased, died, kept them because still pretty/loved to watch the birds in them, one fell in the wind = safety hazard = other 2 must go, so sad), right? when who ever should come walking up the street but my sister who lives in london!!!! such an incredible surprise! i was completely shocked when i stepped out the front door and nearly dropped whatever was in my arms (not a child) and ran crying like a baby to her. thankfully the cameras missed that shot!
thank you aunt denise for organizing crafts for the kids and the grown-ups! we made a great christmas banner – details coming soon, i promise!
