Oh what a week we had!
We started the week with the landscaper showing up - on time, I might add - to take the large palm tree out.
As you can see, this was a pretty big tree and while we loved it - we knew it was going to have to go if we were going to put in the patio.
So, after a couple of hours, palm tree was lifted out of the ground
and on it's way to the nursery so it can find a new home.
Then, we had a real treat!
Lorelai spent the night with us!
Her first night away from her mom and dad.
Why at only eleven months did my sweet little one stay the night?
Well, it was very simple, really. Her mom had a EARLY morning meeting in Sebring (she had to be there at 7:15) which meant she would have had to wake the baby up around 5:30 to get her here in time to make her meeting. So, the best solution was to let the little one stay here.
She (and her gran pee Dan) did great. Truth be told, I was a little tired when Melissa picked her up Tuesday afternoon - but it all turned out okay.
The rest of the week was pretty normal - golf cart rides a couple of times a day (that little one sure does like riding on the golf cart) and playing with the pups and tennis balls.
Saturday we had to do some shopping at Walmart.
Sunday was church.
I think we have finally found our new church home.
We have been "shopping" for a new church since we settled here in Lake Placid - but for some reason - nothing felt "right". I think we were always trying to compare the church to our church in North Carolina which we loved. However, we don't live in NC anymore, and we really needed a church here.
A couple of weeks ago we visited the Nazarene church here in Lake Placid, but the pastor was not there - he was at the leadership conference. While we enjoyed the small congregation we couldn't know if we would like the pastor.
Well, to make a long story short, we went yesterday and enjoyed the service very much. WE feel like this is the right place for us. So, no more "shopping" around - we have a home.
Today, Little Miss had something new.
A homemade Popsicle!
(Frozen pear juice)
Can you tell she really liked it?
It's such fun to introduce her to some new things.
I think I'll have to see what other Popsicle I can invent.
Gotta run -
Have a great week!
