our cozy cottage is home

She's home! The guys brought her home safely. Randy says she pulls like a dream. That's a good thing.

Look at my kiddos and grandkiddo lounging on the bed. Are they not the cutest! We sure missed Nicole being with us for the cottage reveal. Poor Emolyn didn't know what to think of a house on wheels, but in time she will grow to love her little playhouse.

But we sure had a fun day together. Several sweet photo ops. Emolyn loves her baby dolls and takes them everywhere she goes.

She loved the park, especially walking barefoot on the playground sand, the grassy park and the basketball court.

At one point she noticed she had pockets and was determined to work her little hands inside those pockets. Cracked me up.

After bath time, we put her in the cutest pj's for a photo shoot with the Halloween quilt that her Mommy made for Randy. We love getting that lap quilt out each year.

I grew up with a jewelry box similar to the one I found recently at my little thrift store. Emolyn loves to watch the little ballerina girl twirl round and round to the sweetest music.

And occasionally she has to take the ballerina girl off the pedestal to give her a little kiss. Just melts me.

Just before the guys pulled in with the cottage, Miranda read her niece several books. Emolyn loves books.
Btw, had a fantastic women's retreat weekend. Came home refreshed, renewed and refocused. Such good stuff. Still processing it all.

Was that Kiwanis Park?

And now your trailer needs a name.

Oh Linda!
How exciting. That too is one of my dreams. To own a little camper that DH and I can go off in, for weekends. Just big enough for two and the little critter ofcourse. I am so thrilled for you.

I look forward to meeting you on Friday at the AZ blogger luncheon. Congrats on your new home. Country hugs, Sherry

Hi Linda,
I'm here!! Where's the warm weather? hehe. Dan loves it this way. I'll call you tomorrow, I am anxious to see my son tonight! We had quite the bumpy plane ride and then a little boy sitting next to us threw up on his mom and Dan. Not too fun. Looking forward to Friday too. Hugs, Cindy

Love the new header photo! Sounds like there's going to be quite a crowd at this lunch that you're going to. Have a blast!

Your trailer is sooo cute. I could so have a ball decorating that baby up! You should find pics from your days in the 70's and run with it. Remember all the colored decanters? Seriously, still have my gold measuring spoons from Tupperware when I first got married. I have newer ones, but I can't seem to part with them. I will have to look around and see if I have anything else from then...I don't think so though. I can't wait to see all your adventures. Well, no, really I am jealous...but I am trying to move past it!!!!
