A Visit with Friends

Sunday, our good friends Forrest and Catherine came up from Gadsden to see us. We went to high school and college with them and Joseph and Forrest are fraternity brothers as well. We realized we hadn't seen them since Hudson was born when they came to see us at the hospital. They decided to ride up and spend the afternoon with us and we were thrilled!!! I cooked a roast with carrots and Pioneer's Woman's mashed potatoes and it turned out really well. I just threw a shoulder roast (not my first choice), a can of french onion soup, a can of water, a couple bay leaves, and a few shakes of parsley and thyme into the Crock-Pot and let it cook for about 6 hours and it was delicious. I'll be making it again soon, but with a different cut of meat. It was tender, but didn't fall apart as easily as I was going for.

Anyway.....they were so sweet to bring Hudson a Christmas present.....

He tried really hard to open it by himself, but needed just a little assistance. :-)


They got him a few great books! Hudson loves books (when he's in the mood to be still for a few minutes) and these will be great additions to his collection.

Checking them out.

Of course, he had to "taste" them out. HA! Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all day. ;)

He and Forrest had a little bonding time and it was so sweet, I had to snap a couple pictures.

Love this! Forrest will be a great daddy one day. ;)

He had to show them his Christmas tree before they left. They wore him much that he took an almost 3 hour nap after they left. Yeah, that definitely threw off his bedtime, but that's alright. We had a great afternoon visiting with them and definitely plan to see them before another 8 months go by!

Thank you again for coming to see us and for the wonderful books! :)
