Friday Oct 28th –
The Canadian coffee beans were nearly all used up, a cause worthy for concern 😬☕️
I started my day by getting the cake decorated.
A fairly quick task but one that always leaves me unsatisfied with the result and sick of icing😜
Guests were bound to arrive so of course that meant a house cleaning.
Ah, such a nice feeling once done ☺️✨🛋
The boys flew in to Amsterdam and picked up another guest on their drive back.
Heidi and Ezra hung out with us for the rest of the day and we had a nice, laid back evening together.
The boys being a tad tired from being up at 5:00 am 😁
Dinner was eaten cross-legged at the small round coffee table in the living room and with us all sipping our soup it felt rather oriental,
but the hearty farmers sausage didn’t fit that food description😜
Between chatting and us girls opening the gifts our boys brought back for us, cake, coffee and tea was eventually brought out and served
But all good things must come to an end and our evening together eventually did, with plans for another quickly in the making 😊
Saturday Oct 29th –
Coffee was made with a new bag of coffee beans… it was awful 🙄
So a search for something drinkable would soon be in order.
We got a box from the town with coupons in it as a welcome gift, a nice little gesture.
Coupons for groceries, stores, football and more! 😀🎫🎁
We had to go into town for some groceries, returns etc. etc. after which it was time for a family nap in the nap room 😊
I went to sleep first and after a while Mike joined me… we woke up to Fiji stretched out by us as well.
Quality family time 👌🏻😋
Supper was quickly fried up so I could get to the work of making mini cupcakes, as there was something that needed celebrating.
Our 10th niece had been born!👶🏻
A trip to meet her was planned for the next day, so we couldn’t go empty handed 😉💕
Mike went to the store quickly for a coffee bean search so we could have some good java the next morning and he also grabbed some food coloring for the icing.
(What kinda food coloring salesman doesn’t have food coloring for his wife?)
Mike didn’t care a bit about the whole baking process but come icing time, of course he wanted to get his hands in on the only fun part😏😋
He did extremely well 😉
After everything was cleaned up and packed away I got to sit down and enjoy a footrub😘
