Thanks for the birthday greetings for Landon. He had a great day. His dad and step mom had lunch with him at school, then he came to Nana's where he got his Star Wars toy that he had asked for and he got to go to dinner with Mommy, just the two of them. Have ya'll noticed how Star Wars has made a come back with this new generation? I was pregnant with my oldest child when Star Wars debuted. Marvin and I seriously tossed around the name Leia if the baby was a girl. Since he was a boy he was saved!! And while he is Ben for a great great grandfather we teased that we had named him for old Ben Knobi.
Speaking of babies...back in our day we did not know if we were having a boy or a girl until the doctor announced it in the delivery room. There was a lot of joy in that!! One of my nieces is expecting her third child and she and her husband have chosen each time to be surprised so they do not ask to know the sex at the ultrasound. I think that is pretty neat. I am so nosy that I do not know if I could be so disciplined!
As some of you know, my husband is a Savannah, Ga native so our facebook pages were filled up with scenes of the flooding on the road to Tybee Island yesterday. Tybee is about 30 minutes from downtown Savannah and there is only one two lane road that accesses the island so it was pretty big news there. It does not take much for Savannah to flood and this extremely high tide caused lots of roads in Savannah to be closed as well. Hoping things dry out there today.
I am sure all the kiddies are getting hyped up for Halloween. Kendall and Landon will wear their costumes to school on Friday for a costume parade. Kendall is Mal from the Disney movie, Descendants while Landon is going to be Sonic the Hedgehog. Margaret is going to be a CowGirl, Elliott will be Tigger and Baylor may be a robot. That was still under discussion as Baylor is not a fan of costumes. It will be little Audrey's first Halloween and I am sure Charles and Nancy will have her dressed up too.
One of my favorite things to get for the grands is Wendy's Halloween treat coupons. For $1 you can get ten coupons for free jr Frosties. All the money that Wendy's makes from this venture is given to charities that promote adoption. And hey, who says Nana might have kept one of those coupons?
My king bed is still waiting to be put together! I told Marvin that tonight is the night. I am tired of stepping around it in my bedroom. It will be an ordeal to move everything but now that I have new sheets and a comforter I am ready to get going.
I have added a few more cross stitch blogs to my blog roll. One is just for displaying your Prairie Schooler projects. Prairie Schooler is my cup of tea when it comes to stitching. Also Jenn at Sweet T Makes Three has posted a blog post about how to make some of the decorations that were used at our MOPs meeting.
My sis in law reported that the movie, Bridge of Spies was excellent if you are looking for something to see this weekend. Tom Hanks rarely disappoints. I am old enough to remember him in his early days on TV when he and Peter Scolari were Bosom Buddies. I think my favorite movie of his is You've Got Mail. I am a romantic at heart.
I am having some ladies over this morning for a Young Living Essential Oils class so I need to get up and get busy! I have some yummy food and nice door prizes for them. It will be a nice way to spend a rainy Wednesday morning.
