Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy

That is David with Miss Baby. Everyone was healthy so we took a chance. We are on day 66 that means 34 more days until David is cleared to do something else like see Miss Baby but who could wait any longer? we haven't seen her in person in 3 months. enough is enough. and as you can see by my husband's face it was worth it! We got to exchange our Christmas gifts  I gave miss baby some board books my daughter just gets out of her mouth " Oh she loves board books" When Miss Baby takes one of the pages and bent it in half.(it is thick cardboard) I had to laugh it was like there no more board books!
She is such a joy she makes us laugh so much and we got to see her take some steps. She really thinks about it before she trys to walk. She is looking at me like enough gram I need lunch.

On the way home we went ta da dump. I got this cutie wrong season but it will look good this fall on my table. When I pull out the fall things I will weed something out. That is one of my new resolutions also. something comes in then something must go out.

It screams Acorn Hollow to me

Well we all tucked in for the night a bit tired from all the excitement today.
I got the new Mary Jane's farm today and I am reading a great book.
Night Road by Kristin Hannah If you have never read her you should give her a try.
the other titles I loved were
Firefly Lane
Winter Garden
I stopped and got the correct needles for the hats I want to knit (I got the wrongs ones when I turn tail and ran.) My goal is socks I want to make socks so much. So if anyone has a very easy pattern I would love to have it.

One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach, one can collect only a few.

David looks joyous! It must be so wonderful to have contact at last with Miss Baby as they grow SO quickly :o)
I LOVE your gorgeous acorn dish - I'm afraid I couldn't wait until Fall to have it out on show as it's a stunner!

Who could resist seeing Miss Baby?
She is sure a cutie!
Your DH looks good. I pray everything will continue well for him.
Yes, your purchase is perfect for acorn hollow. You were smart to get it while it's still there, and cheap!
Take care-Kimberly

That is a sweet little Fall dish and yes it says Acorn Hollow all over it!!

Miss Baby is so cute..I love her pigtails. I'm glad David was able to see her and you can tell it made his day. It was like the best Christmas present saved for last! Your dump find is so cute and I do the same thing...I try to move one thing in for a new one. Sounds like you had a great day!

What a great joy to be able to hold miss Baby in his arms, how healing... counting the days.

David looks great and has good color and is very handsome too.

Have you tried to find a sock pattern online?

That bowl sure has Acorn Hallow written all over it. What a lucky find. I love it.
Have a great weekend with your man. Hugs, JB

What a beautiful baby!! Hope your hubby has a speedy recovery.

I went all the way back when you first talked about dh's transplant. I am so happy he is doing well, and I will pray for him, and you. I know how difficult it is. When I was 45 dh had a stroke and our life changed forever. But, it went on. It is being able to accept the change that is difficult.
I hope next year at this time, you will be celebrating and enjoying all the things you missed this year.
The most important thing is that you have each other.
Many blessings in 2012!
