Both McKenna & Christina made a bee-line for the desert table just as soon as this photo was finished being snapped. Boy, they wasted NO time trying to decide which of the tempting sweets was going to be their first choice. Christina is always saying; "Life's short, eat dessert first!!". And, judging by the fact that I caught McKenna eating a piece of Oreo pie before eating turkey, I think Christina has been quite successful at convincing McKenna of this "truth".
As you can see, Saige was missing from the photo as she was busy typing up some of the questions that we have for our soon-to-be-arriving friend, Isabelle. We're hoping that when she arrives, she is wearing her "lucky shirt" that she has talked often about and her favorite "sling back" shoes. Isabelle has told Saige that her sling backs are a bright, sparkly gold.....they sound sooo cute!
We also cannot wait to hear more about her mother's sewing room. Isabelle said her mom has a very old sewing kit that she keeps in an "old wooden box". This special box originally belonged to Isabelle's mom's mother.....so it was Isabelle's grandmother's sewing box. Isn't that the coolest? Oh, and the other thing we all want to know is why Isabelle calls her mother's sewing machine "Henrietta"? What a funny name to give a sewing machine! :) We're positive there must be a story to this funny little name!
We only have a few days to finish all the preparations. The girls have all decided that we should have a little party to celebrate Isabelle's arrival. So, after we finish cleaning up after Thanksgiving, we need to get started right away setting up for a GOTY 2014 celebration!
Stay tuned! Good gravy, we are all sooooo excited!!!!! ~ Cindy ♥
