Well, we made it. We had the "gathering" yesterday and I think it was a success. We had lots of food and fun. I believe we ended up with about 16 guests (family and friends) and that was a house full. Everyone talked, laughed and ate lots of yummy goodies that my sister and sisters-in-law helped prepare. There were gifts galore for Big Girl. She was very happy and pleased with all of the attention.
It is always nice to have folks over to share food and fellowship. Hubby hid upstairs the whole time and later commented on the quantity and volume of talk and laughter in the house. Isn't that how it is though when you get a bunch of women together? Some of ladies got to catch up with others they hadn't seen in a while. Some talked about old times while others shared their troubles. We joked with each other and laughed, we just had a good time. Sometimes there's just nothing better than a hen party; especially when your best girl friends can be there and make you feel extra special.
I think there are a couple more gatherings being planned and prepared for in honor of Big Girl and Grandbaby. These are exciting times. The anticipation is almost overwhelming as the time draws near. I hope you will keep us all in your prayers as we make our way through the next few weeks waiting for our little miracle to arrive.
I am a wife, mother and grandmother who works full time and loves crafts and beer. I am married to my soul mate who is a home brewer and we enjoy trying new beers. We have an amazing family that keeps life interesting. I love any kind of crafts and my interests change often. Knitting and crocheting are a constant for me though and offer relaxation - most of the time. Life for me is fun, crazy, and exhausting all at the same time. I hope you will enjoy reading about it. Thanks for stopping in. I hope you will visit often and feel free to leave a comment.
Friday Night Beer Review posts are about craft beers that we have tried. Reviews are not always posted on Friday nights, but the beers are typically drank on Friday nights. The "reviews" are just our comments and thoughts about different beers and our likes and dislikes. Hubby and I have different tastes so we hope you find this interesting. You will also find information about different breweries. I will even try to post some beer happenings when I can. This is our feable attempt to make folks aware of various craft brews, breweries and beer happenings. Enjoy!
