Well, it won't be this weekend, but in just seven days I will be seeing a good many of my family. It all started with my son, Rich, telling me that he and Stacy, his fiance, are coming to see us so that we can meet her before the wedding. You might imagine how happy that made us. They live in Lake Tahoe and right now it is very cold there with snow after snowfall. I think they have more than three feet. Great for skiing though, and they all do ski. My son has two of his three sons living with them. The oldest is off on his own.
We have been hoping that Rich would meet someone who could make him happy for the rest of his life. Fortunately he did meet Stacy and two of my daughters have already met her and love her. They think she is just perfect for him. She has three young children so I will have three more grandchildren, which totally delights me as my youngest grandchild is fourteen. He happens to be Rich's youngest and Stacy's children really love him. He is just so good with children. He, (his name is Sean) is coming too. Unfortunately, Blaine, his other son has a game he has to play on Saturday so will be staying home. It is so neat, because all of my daughters are coming that weekend to see Stacy too. I will have all of my children in one place at the same time!! That just doesn't happen very often. In fact the last time was three years and ten months ago for my 80th birthday party.
Of course I have been baking and cooking up a storm. This, so I won't have to do much while they are here. I have been baking bread this week. (I do that on a regular basis) I have made white, oatmeal and tomorrow I am doing the 100% whole wheat. They will have a lot of choices. For desserts I have made chocolate cake, carrot and pianapple cake, and will make cheescakes the next Friday morning. There are also cookies and brownies in the freezer. It will be so fun to have them. I have told them all that they had better not be on a diet, because sometimes when they come they are dieting and all my goodies are for naught. I hate when that happens!!!!
Anyway,I had better stop this as I have to take the bread out of the oven in seven minutes. Maybe we will have a slice of nice warm oatmeal bread. We went out to lunch today and had a huge one. Celebrating a good friends birthday. So no dinner tonight. We had Thai food and it was to die for. I am going to try to figure out what went in mine and duplicate it. At least I am going to try. .........Later
