I feel a bit like a kid on Christmas morning. Tonight Boy Child and Daughter in law arrive for the weekend. When we get home from our party tonight they should be just arriving. I haven't seen them much in the past few months because they have been travelling back and forth to New Jersey where they are needed. And because its been a while, I haven't had a chance to really see that beautiful baby bump (she was barely showing last time I saw her). I am so excited to put my hands on that belly and feel bubbie kicking. I always make marmalade for her grandmother so I need to get myself organized for making a batch this afternoon. These are photos from my last year's batch.
Do you not just love the colour of Marmalade. This gorgeous model looks fabulous with her marmalade hair and makeup. And my Girl Child did the makeup for this shoot! She is a very talented makeup artist who works for some very talented women who own the studio. They raised over $2000.00 for men's cancer for Movember and on Monday they are all donating and entire day to the women of a battered women's shelter. 15 women will arrive at the studio to have their hair cut, coloured and styled, a pretty makeup and lesson, plus a catered lunch from a nearby restaurant and leave with some hair and makeup products. Although they have so much more to worry about, we all know that a nice hairdo can make you feel 100% better.
On Sunday we are springing Sweet Mama from the nursing home for a family dinner here. I've missed her. She's been quarantined at the home due to a virus. I found this photo of us from 2 years ago at Christmas. She does like a good chuckle. Notice how I make this photo small. I hate photos of myself. Especially since I was at a wedding this summer standing next to another 50 something woman and I was asked if I was her mother! I've been harshly examining my wrinkles ever since.

Have a lovely weekend.
