We are so thankful this morning for safety through the storm, for our electricity when so many do not have it, for a warm, dry house, when so many do not have that either.
Everything was closed down yesterday, and most things today, also.
Activities in our day included one little girl (and I) making her first batch of cupcakes. She hung in there with me throughout the entire process.
She was happy placing the tiny "eyes" on each cupcake.
She eagerly participated in playing the harmonica and guitar with her Paw paw. A brand new experience for her...which she enthusiastically embraced.
Our son-in-law studied for his upcoming sermon (this Sunday), and appreciated some quiet moments to do so.
Our neice was staying with us since she had a day off from school. Somehow, she studied through all the socializing:)
When we found out we were getting more overnight guests because of the storm, our neice and daughter whipped up some chocolate chip cookies.
After all, what does one do during hurricane warnings?
Another neice and her husband came overnight, and I am sure you have no problem understanding the "why" of it.
Now that we hear all the stories of the devastation that so many experienced and continue to face from Sandy's wrath, we are more grateful than ever for the day we had.
And, no our neice did not deliver her baby last evening. We all continue to wait for that very special little one to arrive.
