Grandma is in the wheelchair with Leslie standing up behind the kids and Reveau is sitting in the chair. Forrest won the marbles game
Forrest and Sadie are thinking about their next moves. FOrrest won the game.
Forrest with all of his "cool" books he will put on his bookshelf for decorations.
Sadie will probably read all of her "new" books. They were bought new by the original owner, right? lol style='clear:both; text-align:CENTER'>
Thursday I drove to Birmingham after school to pick up George's Aunt Reveau and her daughter, Leslie from the airport. They are here to visit with George's mom, who is Reveau's yuounger sister. We are so excited to have them here for a couple of days. They are from Utah, and when they left Slat Lake City Thursday morning, it was snowing. The airplane had to be "de-iced" before if could take off. That sure isn't the case here in the Deep South, is it! George and the kids met me at his parents house around 8pm and we visited till about 10pm and I took the kids home while Goerge visited till about 12 midnight. Friday we went back over to George's parent's house for a visit and I made a big pot of Santa Fe soup for dinner, which they have never had. Yummy! We had a blast. Leslie and Reveau are so awesome. They have visited twice before, in 1998? and in 2005. They are who my sister and I stayed with when we flew to Salt Lake City last May. The kids were able to play a game of marbles while Leslie and I went through the last two years of my scrapbooks. Right before we left, Barbara (George's mom) told the kids and I if we wanted any of her church books on the shelf, we could have them. We had to first "check" them out through her to make sure she didn't want them. Forrest and Sadie loved going through all Grandma's books. Forrest thinks old books are "cool". They know I love Joseph Smith and they were excited to find books about Joseph and bring thme to Grandma to "check-out" ! Sadie began reading one of her books before we left. They will remember this night for a long time. I have no idea where we are going to put them!
We picked up Lesie and Reveau and took them to church with us. George kept waking Reveau up and come to find out, Leslie says that they never wake her up at church back home. Leave it to George to break the rules! lol After church, we had the priviledge of bringing them back to our house for lunch. We had chicken salad sandwiches, chip & salsa, veggies & dip and apple pie with Blue Bell ice cream. Yummy! Leslie has never heard of Sundrop, so I gave her the pleasure of tasting one. She loved it! They do not have Blue Bell ice cream in Utah, only Blue Bunny. So again, they had a real treat with the awesome creamy Bluebell homemade vanilla ice cream. George took them back to his parents after lunch, as George's older two brothers were going to take them to Monte Sano Mountain for a hike. We are loving all the time we are able to spend with Leslie and Reveau. This afternoon we are going back over for a visit and FHE. George will bring them to the airport tomorrow. That will be a sad day!
I'm finally moving towards owning my own painting company, after wanting one of almost 25 years. I've been gaining experience of painting for others for years, which I've truly enjoyed. I'm back in school, earning another degree, but this time in Business. By having the knowledge of the behind the scenes in business, I feel I'll have a greater advantage in direction I'm headed. I look forward to overcoming obstacles and moving toward my goal of being a successful business owner. The purpose of the blog is to track my progress, from overcoming my fears, to tracking my successes.
