Hey, Look! Meredith is here!
Mark and LuAnn are always in fashion.
As with all big noTTafarm events, my one regret (other than yelling at innocent people that are trying to help me) is that I didn't take enough photos! I neglected to capture the following:
1.) my sister, Karolyn, and her husband, Alan, visiting from Meeker, Colo;
2.) our nephew Joe, his girlfriend Sara, and his buddy Anthony ~ all students at UNL;
3.) our niece Chelsie, always such a good helper and wonderful sport;
4.) Carl and Marita, who brought along their out-of-town guests, Becky and Bob (it was so nice to meet them!) Marita also shared two of her famous pecan pies which were sooo good!;
5.) our friend Sonya and friend, Mark (making one of his first public appearances as Sonya's special someone);
6.) my brother Tim and his wife Teresa who I owe $$$ for the ice they purchased. Tim stayed after everyone had left for the night and washed all my dishes. Thank You, Timmy!;
7.) my friend and former OWH co-worker, Lisa ~ visiting noTTafarm for the first time with her precocious 4 year old daughter Lauren;
8.) my adorable friend Christine who accompanied her beau Kevin and pup Marley Mae but had to dash off to Des Moines shortly after noon;
9.) our sweet niece Karli, home late to Omaha after celebrating Dakota Days at USD;
10.) our nephew Pat ~ the recently wed lucky husband of Kathleen;
11.) our friend Mary (Gary's wife) who brought along a super delicious peanut butter dip with vanilla wafers and kept us entertained in the kitchen;
12.) Kathleen's mama Liz and brother Dan ~ who I hope will come and visit us often;
13.) and very special visitors: Doris and Janis who toured the finished house for the first time. We were so happy that noTTafarm's previous residents stopped by and are so glad to call them friends;
14.) and my Mommy and Daddy who had to miss this year's party due to Dad's recent knee replacement. We'll see you here next year, Ray and Jolene! Don't forget your chainsaw!
Another wonderful noTTafarm celebration is in the books. Now we can sit back and relax . . . oh, wait. The holidays are just around the corner!
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
