In addition to celebrating Karl’s birthday and Thanksgiving, we enjoyed just hanging out with the family in Memphis last week.
Ever the dutiful son (or dootyful, in this case…ha!), Carl installed new toilets in his parent’s house, replacing the 40-year old commodes with new, higher, sleeker thrones.
Carl also spent some time working at his sister, Leslie’s house, as well. He’s such a good brother!
We spent time playing cards, including Camp Cards and our new favorite card game taught to us by friend’s at church, 4 Up-4 Down.
We went to an exhibit at the Dixon Art Gallery.
The exhibit was a collection of dresses, entirely made out of paper!
Can you believe this is all paper?
It was pretty cool, especially for a paper crafting enthusiast like myself.
We went to Sue’s friend, Marilyn’s house for authentic Memphis BBQ ribs and coleslaw. I first met Marilyn at my baby shower for Kelly…so that was over 27 years ago!
Sue brought Brandy Ice for dessert…yum!
It was a fantastic time spent with family in Memphis and we are grateful! We look forward to seeing Sue and Karl again in just under a month for our annual Christmas visit. Leslie will be missed but will be with us in our hearts.
