Our weekend started Friday with a movie...Hitchcock.
On Saturday morning I went to a baby shower for a young friend. How I wish I had taken my camera as this shower would have been a good blog post. The theme of the shower was books and the guests were greeted on the front porch with a table stacked with books and a little chalk board sign with a quote about the importance of books in a child's life. Inside, the food table was so sweet...hummus and carrots were served next to the book, Peter Rabbit. Meatballs near Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Little Ham sandwiches and deviled eggs tinted green were served next to the book, Green Eggs and Ham. And for Dessert we had Cookies and Milk next to If You Give A Mouse a Cookie. Books were used through out the home as decoration and as a reader, I just loved this theme. Each guest brought a book along with their gift and believe it or not, there were no duplicates for the sweet baby. As we left the party, Moon Pies were placed by the door as a little take home...and the book? Good Night Moon of course.
Saturday afternoon, we welcomed Marvin's first cousin, Bill and his wife, Sue. They spent the night with us on their way home from their winter vacation to Florida and Alabama's Gulf Coast.
We ended the weekend as most people did, watching Downton Abbey. I am so sad as this series comes to a close and I have read that the next season will be the last. I can see that Mr. Fellowes is wrapping up some story lines as he prepares to end his saga. I have to say that I am so irritated with the whole Mr Green's mysterious death plotline. It was enough that Bates was in prison, let's not have Anna going there!
We are having more school delays this morning...please spring come soon!
