We have had an extremely busy couple weeks, and I apologize for not having an update on here sooner! Steven has been working crazy hours and been in the field quite a bit…so by the time Thanksgiving came around, he was ready for a break! We were anxious to get to
My mom and I spent Thursday cooking like crazy and having some much needed girl time in the kitchen together…we always have so much fun! Meanwhile, Steven and my dad worked on his new “Man Room” by putting up cabinets and tiling the top for dad’s new wine area….wish I had pictures…forgot! Both of my parents have gimp wrists….mom broke hers slipping and falling on a deck at camp, landing full on her wrist, and my dad has had wrist issues forever and recently hurt it again. Anyway, they needed our help to pull together the food and lift cabinets…I think that’s the only reason why they invited us up! J just kidding, mom! We did have a great time, and we realized that this was the first time in ten years that I’ve been home for Thanksgiving! When I went away to college, we always had volleyball matches over the break, and same with my time at
We celebrated Thanksgiving on Friday so that most of our family would be able to come and avoid the conflicts with other family Thanksgivings. It worked out perfect! Around 10am, we went to my dad’s school and had a huge volleyball match with the family. The Quance family has some serious volleyball players, my aunt Carol and I both played in college, my cousin Brittany was a high school state champ, cousin Melissa was a great high school player, my mom and cousin Andy were/are current coaches, and my parents, brother, aunts/uncles, other cousins, have all been around the game so much that they’re all really good! We’re talking serious volleyball here…rules apply and everything! It’s really a sight to see!
We headed back to my parent’s house around noon and had dinner all ready to go! The feast was amazing, as usual, and we all ate too much! After dinner, my sister and sister in law threw me a fun baby shower. It was mostly family and close family friends, we had such a good time. Thanks so much ladies! Baby is now fully geared up and ready to rock when he comes!
We left Saturday afternoon to come home, Steven had Staff Duty on Sunday and was then in the field all week. This past weekend we got a lot of stuff done around the house, including the cradle! We put the lacquer finish on it and set it up in the nursery. It is so beautiful, and we are so thankful that mom Terry kept it and passed it down, and that mom Sue made the gorgeous bedding!
