We woke VERY early yesterday morning - early as in 3:30!!
We were on the road by 4:20 and arrived in Quadville at 10:00 am!
Louis Dean drove the whole way - stopping for breakfast at Sam's Cafe in Fairfield - and I SLEPT!
I love to travel in this manner!
The night before Louis Dean had packed the truck full of 'things from home!'
This included Christmas things - decorations, books, and clothes - plus firewood, a blower, and the odd items leaving room for Lucy's kennel and the ice chest for the food!
He was adding more 'coolant' to the A/C when our daughter in law arrived.
Sherry and her sister came by to give me some baby blankets that were used by Cindy's baby girls - both of whom are practically grown now! We can't even SAY Sherry's name without SMILING!
She is THAT kind of person. She pitched right in and helped Louis Dean on the truck. It was good to see so much of our family on this trip home. Monday I had lunch with my good friend, Brenda, and the Tuesday Ruth Ann and I did what we USED to do every Tuesday! We went to the movies at Starplex where it is only fifty cents all day long long! We saw 'Looper' and we both agreed it didn't really have an 'ending.'
It simply STOPPED. But we still had so much fun it was ridiculous! We hit up the Goodwill on our way home. I made us a glass of tea and we picked some pecans for her to take with her completing a very GOOD day!!
I had an arm full of babies by 10:30 Wednesday morning!
So did Louis Dean! We couldn't get to them fast enough!
In the afternoon I went with Amber and Mike to take the quads in for their 6 month check up - can you BELIEVE they are SIX MONTHS old?? I have a hard time believing this myself!!
You can check out her blog post about it Here!
The quads got great check ups......and FOUR shots EACH!!!
Logan was pretty serious about it all!!
Kailey was waiting her turn!
These doctor appointments take a LONG time since you're dealing with FOUR appointments all in one!
What was Granddad doing while WE were gone?
He's been awake since 3:30 that morning, remember?
This is Kailey after we returned home. Babies are SO expressive!
Last night we started unpacking some of the truck. I've never decorated a camper for Christmas before but I figure - how hard can this be?
I am home now after our second day back in Quadville.
Dinner is cooking - scalloped potatoes, black eyed peas and baked fish.
Christmas music is playing on the radio.
This angel is on the table as I sit here writing .
I rescued her from a shelf at the Goodwill Tuesday.
I only paid $4.99! The price tag on the bottom says $115!
I added a small poinsettia wreathe and tiny electric candle I was already using here by the window.
The two look perfect together!!
I hope to finish all the decorating Sunday afternoon!
It's a GOOD thing to be back in Quadville! I just brought Christmas back WITH me!!
