Recent Randomness, Grandkids and Michael's Birthday...

Hey, dears!!
Well, as the title pretty much sums up this here postling, we'll be off to pictures...
Around Mike's birthday, Kressant threw a lovely (and delicious) dessert bar party for her dear husband. What a wonderful evening! She made two fabulous cheesecakes, creamy milkshakes, and had ice cream and milk and everything! We played Rook, Guess Who, :) and Monopoly that evening, amidst much laughter, eating, talking and just having such a sweet family time.
Monopoly has been our craze lately.... :) Uncle Cleve and Critter (Michael III) havin' fun!
The exchanging of land...
LOL, Paul won that game-how cute! Such a smart little guy. Must have had to have been very frugal by the looks of his little stash. ;)
I now interrupt birthday pictures with a peek at Dee's adorable skirt she made the other day!! Isn't it precious, girls?
I love the fabric and trim she used.
And here's Sam Man. I just love his smile...

And.....drum roll, please---Ta-Da!! A fan! In the laundry room! Ah, it feels soo good in there now...Above is our dear, rejoicing laundress, showing off the little beauty.And, another little joy of life-we got a new ironing board cover while we were fixing up the room. :) It's even blue, y'all.
See, to match yon' walls!! How neat is that. Oh, what do y'all think of our new laundry room color? It used to be a yellow shade, and it made you feel hot in the summer, so we figured this cool toned blue would be refreshing. We're really happy at how it turned out! Nothing like a fresh coat of paint to liven up a room...

Happy Birthday to Mike! Cute skirt, Dorothy! And congratulations Laundress (AKA Martha:) The laundry room color is very similar to Micah's new room color... very pretty! Adds a nice touch.
We love ya'll and hope to see ya'll soon! Emily

Hi Mortons!

If you like monopoly, you ought to try "Settlers of Catan" or "CashFlow". They are both really fun, especially "settlers".
