Kendra Shares the News (Photostory)
William Langford is reading the newspaper. He can hear that his wife, Camille, has just arrived home.
"Hi, dear. Did you find something to eat for lunch?" (Camille)
"I ate the left overs we brought home last night." (William)
"Oh good. I wasn't expecting to be gone this long. We went to four different places, and finally picked the last one. My feet are killing me." (Camille)
"Let me help with that. Put your foot up here." (William)
"This is exactly what I need." (Camille)
"Well, we are all set for the shower next week. Now I just have to finalize the menu and help the girls plan out the decorations." (Camille)
"Are you ever going to slow down, woman? You are supposed to be retired." (William)
"Ooooh, that feels good. (pause) Retired doesn't mean sit around doing nothing." (Camille)
"Oh no?" (William)
Camille announces that she has to change because Grace and Kendra are coming over after her doctor's appointment. William remembers he has a quick errand to run. He's going to try to get back before the ladies leave.
"Mom, Dad? Anybody home?" (Grace)
"I'll be down in a minute. Make yourselves at home." (Camille calling from upstairs)
"I would love to offer you a drink, but they are remodeling the kitchen and there's nothing in there." (Grace)
"That's okay. Drinking anything means going to the bathroom. I do that more than enough." (Kendra)
Camille enters from the back stairs.
"Hello guys. Well if it isn't the beautiful mommy-to-be." (Camille)
"Hello, auntie." (Kendra)
"Hi, grammy." (Courtney)
"Come give grammy a hug." (Camille)
"So how are you feeling? You look beautiful. Pregnancy suits you." (Camille)
"Oh, I'm glad you think so. Me and the little one are doing great." (Kendra)
"Well, we are all set for the baby shower next week." (Camille)
"That's wonderful." (Kendra)
"No chance of this little one coming early, is it? Oh my goodness! That was quite a kick." (Camille)
"No, the doctor says, he will be right on time." (Kendra)
"He? You're having a boy?" (Camille)
"Yes, we found out today. I couldn't wait anymore." (Kendra)
"Oh Kendra, I'm so happy for you!" (Camille)
"Mom, this will be like the little grandson you've been wanting for so long." (Grace)
"Wait until your father hears the news." (Camille)
William arrives a little later and is thrilled to hear about the little boy that will be joining the family.
The Langfords unfinished kitchen.
1. I still have to paint the roof and the trim on the Langford home.
2. I quickly threw together her living room just to do the Kendra baby story. I like the way it turned out, so it's staying as is. I need to add more plants on the plant stand, which was formerly the display stand at Ni'Chalet's.
3. I'm thinking about adding a bathroom in the Langford bedroom.
4. Yesterday when I was at Ikea, they had an apartment similar to the one I made for Ian. I was so anxious to make this, I got up in the middle of the night and put this much together. Danielle will be dropping by for a visit in one of the upcoming stories.
