Visitors

Yesterday, Mrs., Nathaniel, and Andrew Wahlquist came over. They came to pick-up some lawn mowers we have; one of them we needed to be fixed and two that we needed to get rid of.


Their old white truck
Caleb and and Jaden enjoyed their time with Nathaniel and Andrew, while us girls and Mom enjoyed talking to Mrs. Wahlquist.

Mrs. handed me a bag. She said that it was for me and that the note inside would explain what it was all about. She also said that it was from her oldest daughter and child, Elisha (She is one of my pen pals). I opened the bag and inside were two packages, wrapped in beautiful wrapping paper. :-) I read the note from Elisha then, I opened the package that had my name on it, and took the one that had Phoebe's name on it to her. She opened hers and we both looked at what we got..................................(scroll down)..............

Wow, those are just gorgeous! Do you know who they are of and who they are painted by? I do love old paintings. Such aura to them… Ah, for history! But I suppose it wouldn't be half as romantic if it was the Present and not the Aged Past, hm? :)

Good to hear from you again! ;-)
No, I don't know who the paintings are by and who they are of-- Sorry!

Dear Hannah,

Yes, I agree about the first one. Do you know what it is of and who it was painted by?

Tell your family we said "Hello" and it was nice to hear from you again! :-)
