Since we moved the couch out of the living room, the rug we had just wasn't big enough and these chairs were scratching the hardwoods.
Hud suggested we look on-line. First he went to Pottery Barn. After his heart started beating again (when he saw the prices) he said let's check Home Depot. This was about the 3rd carpet I looked at and I loved it. It got great reviews and I ordered it online (free shipping).
We were not disappointed when it arrived. It's beautiful and it has so many colors it goes with everything. It will also hide any spills the grandchildren might have. That's always a good choice.
I got this little tree from a catalog the company sent me. I'm going to use it as my centerpiece on the Thanksgiving table. Everyone will write on little tags what they are thankful for and we'll tie them to the tree. I'll take a picture when the table is all set so that you can see how it turns out.
My picture is a little blurry but the statistics aren't. Nicholas just finished his 2nd year of tackle football and he has the trophy to prove it.
Last night his team played in a tournement and lost. Nicholas got mowed over by one big player and just jumped up and went back to his stance. From there on, he tackled anyone he got near. I think he's finally gotten his Papa's killer instinct on the football field and the style his daddy had on the wrestling mat for 4 varsity letters. To me that's a "good thing".
