Beth Saves the Day!




I was not able to travel to the funeral for my father-in-law because of bedrest. It was so hard seeing Michael leave by himself, but we knew it was best. So that I would not be home alone, my cousin Beth came from Atlanta to stay with me! We never get to get together so now was a perfect time - even though I may not be much fun right now we found many ways to pass the time! It was so NICE of her to come down and stay with me. She is taking care of me, she took me to the doctor, she fixes my meals, etc. However I had to draw the line when we ran a quick errand after my doctor's appointment, she tried to make me ride in a wheel chair at Hobby Lobby. I refused and was fine, but she warned me next outing I have to ride in the wheelchair. We went to Hobby Lobby to get fabric and ribbon to make burp cloths. She brought her sewing machine and we made the cutest little burp cloths. We made some for Will and for her sister-in-law and my friend Ryan, who is having a girl so we got to have fun with pink. I posted a picture of a few of the ones we have made so far. We still have to make our camoflauge burp cloths! We also washed all of Will's stuff, clothes, towels, washcloths, blankets, sheets, everything! Now it all smells like a sweet baby and are all organized in his drawers! We were so productive - thanks to Beth! I have such a great cousin! Thanks Bethy!

Way to go Beth...thanks for taking care of Courtney. I know that was special time for both of you, and I know Michael was glad that someone was there to keep Courtney company. Love the burp cloths.
