Goooooood Weekend

I got to love on my baby this weekend. The next youngest didn't seem to mind too much, because she was loving on her, too. I wish I had had just a LITTLE more time to visit with my sweet Annie and her husband. It moves me so much when friends, both old and young, seem so happy to see my kids. And it wasn't because of getting to see the new baby, either--their family at church just loves them all.

We got to share a meal with a bunch of great folks on Sunday, at our Sunday lunch place. We had two tables in "the party room" with friends and relatives, all of whom seemed to get along just fine. Everything was good until Libby started to walk out with Cora--she said she'd be back in just a minute, but I think we all knew better. It really wasn't a very strong threat, though, since she didn't have keys to her ride back to Louisville, and I'm pretty sure most of us could walk faster than she. We didn't have to issue an amber alert. Dexter, Brandy, and Chuck got to love on Cora too, after we got her away from Libby. Maybe Brandy will start thinking about another sweet baby--Alyssa is a winner, for sure.

And Julie didn't start a food fight--she was on her best behavior. Alex said he would tell on her if she did--he was on HIS best behavior too. And Andrea and Laura got to spoil Cora. Everyone pray that next fall we will be passing a new little Rose around the table and taking photos all over the place. And Yen got to hold Cora and give her a red envelope. She told us the traditional Chinese gift for a new baby was a "red envelope". That baby ought to be Chinese, as many times as her mommy has eaten at the Plum Tree!

All in all, it was a great day. I wish we could do it every week, maybe adding a few more dear ones each time. Love to all, and God bless.

You're so funny, momma. I thought we had a good visit. But since you mention it, Daniel thinks you should come up here the weekend of November 11, cause he's going on a men's retreat.

I'm so glad you guys live close enough to see each other, and for you to see Miss Cora. That's one thing that makes me sad about living so far away--my parents should see my little munchkin more often.

and so should we! Post pictures! (I'd settle for some emailed ones. I know I saw albums full, but I'd like to see them again now that I feel like I know a little about him. All I remember was that he was cute and little.)

I, too, think it's awesome that you guys all (mostly) get to visit back and forth. I need to get back closer to Ky! I miss my other family!

Where's our News from Tooz?

Jenn Hacker said...

I think Tooz took a snooze!

What other rhyming words go with Tooz?

Jenn Hacker said...

I talked to Tooz last night on the phone. She's experiencing technical difficulties with her new modem and DSL service so has not been able to blog. So give her a call if you know her number.

Thought you'd like to know she isn't snoozing.

:-)

Actually, the old dial-up is up and running this morning. I am not. Oh well, can't have everything I guess.

Jenn Hacker said...

At least you're back on line for a while! Yay!!!!! Do you want me to try to walk you through setting it up over the phone?
