Our First Christmas, on Hurricane Bay December 27, 2014
As they say, Home is where the heart is.
This was our first Christmas, celebrated in the home we’re restoring on Lake Tahoe. If you’re looking for beautifully finished rooms, this is not the place! Not one room is finished, but we relished the chance to spend time with our son and daughter.
Betsy surprised us with the good news that she’ll be able to graduate with her class, at West Point, on May 23rd, despite some schedule set-backs, after a rugby injury at school. She’s so excited about what lies ahead; especially how she won’t be sharing a dorm room any longer, after graduation!
The kids helped me finish painting the last four dining room chairs, painted in slightly different shades of gray and green, Amy Howard One-Step paint. Andrew seemed to enjoy the process, while Betsy informed me that furniture painting wasn’t her favorite activity!
I made two pies this last week (cheated, using the roll out crust from the store), along with a pan of blondies and a bunch of my “world famous” chocolate chip, coconut, oatmeal cookies. Maybe this explains why I feel like I could deliver twins, any day!
I hope you’ve found some perfection, in this imperfect world.
Best to your and yours!
