we had such a fantastic time hosting everyone. It was the PERFECT day. We have a great backyard for living in a development where the houses are on top of each other. We have lots of trees and shade and by 4:00 when we ate it was completely shaded with gorgeous light. We have a fire pit we built into the patio so about 6:30 we lit it up and sat around with friends warming our toes and talking. We had a huge bounce house in Ruth and Rich's yard just next door so the kids were quite entertained. In fact, I found that my boys had put themselves to bed on their own before 9:00 that night!
It is raining here today (a true gift) and I have the music turned up loud, making Santa Fe soup, preparing for an entire day in the studio coming up with next month's vintage kits. I am hoping to do quite a few for November and December for people to pick up as Christmas gifts (I know I will be making a few for family this year)! I am also toying with the idea of a new kit category (or two) that I will keep you posted on.
Have a great Monday!
