Becoming a pioneer woman, part 2: They have arrived.

 The new family arrived at Sis' Tuesday afternoon, and spent a couple of days getting their things settled in and doing copious amounts of laundry.  Yesterday, K began work on menu planning, perusing her new cookbook.  At 3:30, she began prepping for dinner.

Sis said K was really tired by the time dinner was ready: Spanish rice and enchiladas.  I reminded her it gets easier and faster the more you do it...well, unless you are doing labor intensive things like enchiladas or tamales, that is.  Nonetheless, C pronounced them the "best white-made enchiladas he ever had."  After all, he is from San Antonio.

It will be fun, I hope, watching them maneuver into the routines they develop for themselves.  Sis told K she could bring her own new cookware and dishes and use them if she wanted--she had been kind of downhearted not being able to use them yet.  Seeing the turquoise cooking utensils, I see what K decided.
Meanwhile, Great G-Mama J was helping out in that way that only GGMs can do.

The photos are so sweet, especially the one with Great G and baby.

Yes, that was a selfie, so the baby was most important. :)
