Every few years we are blessed to have a visit
from one of the girls that lived with us for a school year.
You all remember Nellie...
...can you believe it has been seven years since
this day when she arrived in our hometown airport?!
And here she is, sitting at our table again.
Another familiar face across from us, was Katie.
She had many a meal with us while they were in high school.
It was also a pleasure to meet Jonas,
Nellie’s boyfriend, who traveled with her from Denmark.
Since I am still not very handy in the kitchen,
Hubby took charge of making his fabulous brunch.
Eggs, Toast, Bacon, and Hashbrowns...
he has perfected that technique so the hashbrowns are
moist in the center and crispy on the outside.
Of course the girls had to recreate this photo
of their first outing together...
cheering on our Golden Eagle Football Team.
Their friendship was a match made in heaven,
as Katie’s home was just across the street behind us.
In the summertime you can barely see their driveway.
But in the wintertime, Nellie could look out the window
and see when Katie’s car was there...
that meant she was home from dance!
Those nice neighbors behind us gave the girls permission
to run through their yard, between the houses,
to spend some time together.
Our time together went fast, and we said our goodbyes.
Nellie and Jonas have planned a side trip to
vacation in the Black Hills and Mount Rushmore.
But first a parting gift...
Nellie brought some Danish candy.
By the way, this was one of my dad’s favorites!
Thanks for spending some time with us.
