A rainy Saturday at home

Family breakfast...
I just love having breakfast with family!
Sitting around the table, having coffee, reading the newspaper, watching the birds and the rain outside, all of us still slightly rumpled from a good night's sleep.
No place we have to be, except to be together.
It is bliss for me.
Total bliss.

Laura is a Red Bull coffee for her at breakfast, but she might like a cup of tea later.

Jeff checks out the sports page first thing, then moves on to check the weather forecast. Rain was fore casted for Houston all day on Saturday.
So....what do ya wanna do?
How about inviting in some old friends that we hadn't visited with in a while?
Remember her?

And this guy....

Wow...Miss Scarlett hasn't aged a day!

After a quick shut down of the computer, it was time to get a clue.

Hee hee hee....Col. Mustard did it.
Jeff won twice. I personally am clueless.

(Isn't playing old old board games with family on a rainy Saturday afternoon just the best????)

For the grandparents: Here's a good picture of our Miss Scarlett.

She only got to stay a total of 50 hours. Way too short of time. We took her to the airport right after the last game.
Laura is currently working at a hospital in Salt Lake City and living in the guest room at Jeff's house. It is the first time they have lived together since they were teenagers; what a difference ten years makes.
Bye bye! Love you! Give Meowsie a big hug for me!

Jill, the board game is evidence that you enjoy each others company. Wow, what a gift, a treasure and a fist full of memories to take you till the next time.
Miss Scarlet is just as gorgeous as I remembered. It's been a while since I pulled that game out.
