Shhhhh.  Can you hear it?  It’s the sound of silence around my house.   Dan the Man and I have had our daughter-in-law and five-year-old granddaughter staying with us for two months as Stephanie was finishing up her job in Shreveport.  Last Friday was their final day, and I already miss them.  I feel so lucky to have had the time with Princess M, and our house is so quiet without the commotion of a youngster.  Dan and I will have to get used to just-the-two-of-us again.  Princess M’s presence explains my absence from this blog, but I wouldn’t trade her company for a million hours of writing and crapsmanship.


Friday evening, Dan and I drove to Houston to prep for a baby shower I was co-hosting.  I have seven high school girlfriends who are part of a group we call the HaHa’s.  We get together 5 or 6 times a year, and this weekend, we had the privilege of hosting a baby shower for one of our son’s and his wife.  Baby Girl McPhee is due at the end of March.  The picture above shows the tablescape for the shower.  I can’t be credited with any of the work.  Jackie, the most artistic HaHa, put this table together using blocks and toys from her own grandchildren.  Though she edited out a few items before the guests arrived, I think this is a great option beyond the traditional blue and pink.
