More About the Welcome Wagon

We were greeted home with this great banner...made by our neighbors. Inside my mom also made a huge poster to welcome us home. I haven't wanted to take down this cute banner off our door. We were welcomed home by so many friends and neighbors. The best thing a friend can do is start a food chain! We were served so many great meals and everyone was rewarded with meeting Mezmur. The meals?
chicken soup (THANKS lISELLE)
chicken curry (THANKS BETH)
chili and corn bread (THANKS MYNDI)
Not to mention all the wine, beer, salads, amazing cookies, beets, bread, muffins...
Thanks for spoiling us...friends and neighbors! Amazing!

Last night we were visited by our neighbors. They brought a beautiful Pendleton blanket for Mezmur. It was so nice of them to think of her. The blanket is beautiful and Rhett might fight her for it. Here they are playing peek-a-boo with the blanket...

Plant the seed with a friend about a food chain. You will love not having to cook when you come home! April and Courtney...if I could send you meals I would!!! Maybe I should start the chain for you?

What a great welcome home. I cooked and froze a bunch of casseroles and snack food (muffins, pumpkin bread, etc) before going to Ethiopia. Between those and the wonderful meals from friends, the transition was much easier. Love the blanket too!
