I Love Thursday #113 So Many Blessings
This is the 113th post of things we love for the week. We post these loves each Thursday along with LeeAnna on her blog at Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find something to inspire you. Happy Happy Birthday to our friends, Wendy and Susan. We wish you both a day filled with lots of love and cake and maybe a little quilting.
Nursing Pinning Ceremony! Andrea attended her hard-earned and well-deserved nursing pinning ceremony on Tuesday evening. She wasn’t alone, of course. She was well represented in the audience by GG, her Mom, husband, baby daughter, and both Sue and I. Dominic got to stay home and play with Uncle John. It was such a joy to be able to see this ceremony. We are all so proud of her. It did have a slight bittersweetness to it as the ceremony fell on her dad’s birthday. No one would have been more proud of her than he if he were still alive. She was the apple of his eye!
Here’s the about-to-be-pinned sweetie with her sweetie and Auntie Sue photobombing them. Addison was such a good girl during the hour+ long ceremony. Auntie Rose was feeding her puffs that she took one at a time.
Aisle 12! A friend posted this picture on Facebook and it just cracked me up. Yes, I could get into shopping in this aisle 12. All sorts of good things are found in it, don’t you think?!
Holiday Train! We are so lucky to have the Holiday Train travel nearly right through our backyard. We can see it speed by from our patio doors . . . and if we feel like venturing out to the nearby depot we see something like these photos. It was even a fairly warm evening for the event considering it is December.
Baby-boy-to-be! Our sweet niece, Nicole, is advancing along in her pregnancy. She is just glowing, feeling great and is enjoying talking about her baby-boy-to-be whenever she gets a chance. She shared an ultrasound photo with me, and I find them so AMAZING. Look at the features that are already so developed! He isn’t due until mid-March so we’ll have to patient in waiting to meet him. Dominic and Addison will love having a cousin so close by.
Our sweet girl, Addison turned 11 months recently. How oh how is that possible? She thinks she is hot stuff – and she is – sitting at the big girl table. Don’t tell Dominic – he thinks that’s the big BOY table. Dominic loved paging through the toy catalog that came in the mail ADDRESSED to him! Addison wonders when she will get mail (she’s got boks on the way just for her)?! Plus he’s wearing his favorite shirt in a bigger size – thanks to Karla! Finally, the newly hired coloring inspector, Addison, takes her job quite seriously. Hmm, let me see if you’re coloring appropriately for your age. ♥ ♥ ♥
