Home again!

Houston was just dandy! We got a suite at the Hilton Post Oak uptown and it was very nice.  Good service.  The suite was about as big as our house!  Well, not quite but it was very accommodating.

The exhibit of Lucy was amazing but NO PICTURES!  Rats. Silly rules.  So here is one from the web site.

The whole exhibit was very interesting and we enjoyed it as we have everything we have attended there.  However, to be honest, I enjoyed the French Impressionist exhibit we went to at the  Museum of Fine Arts, Houston back in the Spring.

We did some shopping at the Galleria and ate at The Cheesecake factory. Got Rachel a Christmas gift…she picked it out so no surprise but it is an adorable grey peacoat!

Husband took us girls to Anthropologie and then next door was Williams Sonoma where I picked up a Christmas present for Oldest Daughter.  We also went to  The Container Store where I would have loved to purchase wrapping paper for the holidays but I think it is against some rule to spend more on the wrapping than you do the gift. But I did again pick up a gift for Oldest Daughter for Christmas.

I think the highlight of Husband’s trip was grocery shopping at Central Market.   We spent several hours in there and still got home about 5:30 yesterday afternoon.  We had a lovely snack late last night of the sweetest grapes I have ever eaten, brie, caviar and a glass of wine while we relaxed and watched Notting Hill.

I am having photo software problems.  Kodak EasyShare has some of my pictures “frozen” and I can’t manipulate them.  I will figure it out later.  Most of the Halloween pictures are “stuck”and not very good anyway.  Here are a few ~not great but pictures nonetheless. decoratingcookies.jpg

Rachel is decorating the cookies…arent the spiderwebs so cute?

This is Rachel’s collar for her Cleopatra costume…would you believe after all the work, she forgot to put it on before I got this picture with Michelle’s girls and Benjamin as Pugsley…

then didnt get another!  I am going to make her put it all on and let me get a picture “full attire”.  It was too cute not to get a good picture. I will also try to get a photo of the Halloween tree to load.

Okay ~ now some more remodeling pictures.  These are our new tables Husband finished just before the party.  They turned out lovely.  We are not finished with the sofa table.  Husband is getting a piece of glass cut for the top and I am putting family pictures down and then glass on top…kinda of an open scrapbook table. table1.jpg

You can at least see our Halloween vase.  It has black roses and Devil’s Walking sticks painted black.

So…that’s it for today.  I have got a PILE of laundry and have to get the kitchen straight.   Husband is making stir fry tonight with all the lovely vegetables we bought yesterday at Central Market.
