favorite fridays.


this past sunday i invited my family over for supper. not a big deal right? it’s only a few people. wrong! after it is all said and done, there are fourteen of us that make up my side of the family. to top it all off, *g* was working that day, so i was left to clean the entire house, set up the tables, chairs, and place settings, and cook almost everything by myself. complaining aside, i really didn’t mind. it was actually lots of fun!

as i mentioned in wednesday’s post, the family supper also doubled as a going away party for my brother’s family. they are moving across canada to start a new life. we wish them luck. :-)

    Admittedly a lot of prep is involved. But well worth the effort. Good surroundings good food good weather good company and as my dear dad would say ‘good lord lets eat’.

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • I was intending for this video to only be in my stories. After watching it again and again, I decided to post it in my feed as well. I wish to never forget moments like these. Remy’s typical game of asking to go in her crib only to throw everything out of it and pretend to go to sleep. Or her new one- taking her rings in with her and playing with them (after she throws everything out, of course). She makes me say every colour before going to the next one. Then she stacks them up, gets out, and shelves the toy until we have to repeat the game all over again. I let her make her messes all while trying to spend every spare minute with her. These are our days and rituals. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t wake up with this much energy.
