Four sleeves, one sock, and part of a shawl later, we are back home in Bellevue to find sunny skies and our camellias in bloom!
Would you believe we travelled in 2 cars all the way from Chicago to Minneapolis last Friday with our 3 little grandkids who, by the way, are wonderful travelers, their folks, and our son? Our younger daughter and her fiance flew in from Seattle, and it was a grand reunion, the first time we'd all been together since Christmas of 2007. "Through a Series of Unfortunate Events" as Lemony Snicket would say, however, we managed to arrive at the wedding on Saturday just as our niece and her now husband were saying their vows. (Car #2 witnessed the KISS.) Despite that glich we had a wonderful celebration. It was the first time that all of our kids and their cousins had seen each other since 2003 when Jill and Michael got married. And since that day in August, eight children have been added to our family!
A few posts ago, I shared a peek at our wedding gift for Leanne. The cross stitch, a Lizzie Kate pattern, is framed in a Sudbury tray. Hopefully it will remind them of the beginning of their long and happy marriage!
