We got there and got BIG hugs from the twins! They haven’t seen Grandpa since June and me since their birthday party in October! Jami refuses to come to our house and they rarely answer their phone (bill collectors) so we never know if they are there or not. They never answered our calls or e-mails about bringing over the huge pile of Christmas presents. Finally one day we called and got no answer, went over there – no one home. We left all the gifts outside there back door. Several weeks later, we saw Kenny and asked him if he knew if the twins got their gifts or not. We didn’t know if they had gotten them, if they had been stolen or what. We never got a call from either Dan or Jami letting us know. They did get them – Thank Goodness.
So no big rush to visit with Jami, the twins yes, Jami no so much. We went in the house. Scott took his shoes off and I didn’t. I made sure they were very dry and walked to a chair and sat down. I didn’t move the entire time as to not make possible tracks on her hard wood floors.
The twins loved their baskets and I showed Jade the finished wedding sampler I did for my daughter Caitlin. She had seen it when I started it and loved it so I thought she would like to see it finished. I also showed her the ultrasound of baby Skyler’s face.
Scott’s ex-wife Tina and her husband Clint were there – thank heavens. Jami never once acknowledged our presence and never said a single word to either of us. She wouldn’t even come in the room where we were sitting talking to Tina and Clint. She stayed in the kitchen the whole time. Dan is a very quiet guy and doesn’t say a whole lot so if Tina and Clint hadn’t been there – it would of been really bad! We only stayed an hour and 1/2 and we left when Tina and Clint did.
On the stitching front, I have quite a bit done on the Winnie the Pooh birth sampler .
I also have taken pictures of the newest RAK I got from Trish and the little itty bitty start I did on it just to say I started it.
This next picture is very, very late! I got a wonderful RAK from Charlotte back in June 2007. She sent me my first Passione Ricamo pattern Once Upon A Time and the Petite Treasure braids to do it with. I have since bought the fabric and the beads but still have not started it. I REALLY have to get better about taken pictures of stuff when it comes!! VBG!
Everyone have a great day! Back to stitching Winnie the Pooh as soon as I upload these pictures to their appropriate albums!
Good for Scott on making that decision – hard as I’m sure it is. You’re right, the twins are the ones that will be hurt, and it’s just too bad that their mom can’t suck up her own issues and be civil with you and Scott for their sake. Hmmpphh!But they were obviously happy to see you (the twins) and it sounds like the rest of the family helped make it an ok visit.Pooh is looking great, and lovely stash you’ve got there!
