Warm Welcome

We had the most delightful surprise tonight! Some of Jason's extended family asked earlier in the week if they could stop by after church to see all that had been done to Memom and Grandad's house. Of course we said yes, and we expected to see one car with three people pull into our driveway. Instead, two cars and twelve people pulled up! Barbara (Jason's dad's cousin) had coordinated other family members and our neighbors to come over for a good old-fashioned pounding.

Yup, they supplied us with all sorts of things...fresh eggs, recipes, and various and sundry things with which to stock our cupboard. Such a sweet gesture. I love country living.


  1. ooh! that's a great tradition. my dad "pounded" us at our first apartment with crazy amounts of Costco. I'd never heard of it before, but I likey.

  2. Every time I think of this, I get warm fuzzies. That was so sweet.


Love me some comments! If you don't have a Google/Gmail ID, please make sure you leave your name and/or email. Also, I moderate my comments so don't be alarmed if it doesn't show up right away. Thanks, y'all!
