Could this be your home?
I had to share this postcard. It was the only one we bought on our recent road trip. I took a picture of it in the car, on the road trip. It made Hubby and I laugh pretty good. However, in reality, we could live in that house and be perfectly happy. It really made us sigh, as in a happy sigh.
After the recent repairs, appliance break-downs and other issues, this house is looking really good.
The party last night went smoothly. The party went well into the night with his friends, but I'm glad he has today to rest up again. The gokart was up and running, and I hope to see my trees standing this time (I haven't walked out to check). The rain held off and we could spend time on the porch too.
Now that I have had a Marine flag and USA flag flying, we'll need to locate an Army National Guard flag to support our oldest daughter. Can you tell I am taking advantage of Mom bragging rights?
At the last minute, I decided we were having corn on the cob at yesterday's party. I cut them in half and it worked out nicely. I even sent corn home (un-shucked) with everyone that came. Or at least I tried too, ha ha! If they said "a dozen" then I gave them a few extra (he he).
While we were all hanging out in the kitchen cutting Son's "congratulations" cake, my cell phone rang. It was our oldest daughter. They had earned another call home. That was awesome. Everyone that was here got to listen and talk to her....just another "ahhh" Mom moment. She had just completed a 12 mile hike that went through the night hours.
