The Recliner

18 Jan

The new recliner/glider/rocker is now in the house. It was convenient that it arrived right before the two football games today- Kerry decided to keep it in the living room for a few hours to ‘break it in’ and ‘make sure it was comfortable.’ It was football, chili, a fire in the fireplace and a recliner and he was completely happy.

So, it should be here next week and luckily we have the storage to keep it until the spring. Plus, the infant car seat adapter makes it so we can start using it right away. Here is your preview:
