Adah making bubble cheeks.
Breakfast of champions.
Disaster of champions. This is what our kitchen turns into after we have people over for dinner. But well worth it to see friends you haven't seen in awhile!
I took so long to respond to Loni's email that the only way to make up for it was to send her a real letter. It had been so long since I'd written a snail mail that I thought it worth documenting.
A onesie for Baby Boy Larkum (who is now here!) because his dad likes sailing so he will too, I'm sure.
Sometimes there are good, free flowers at work and they can really brighten up a room.
Becoming a master Settler. Maybe not quite yet because at the end of the game we all realized I had accidentally cheated.
Oma and grandson eating Chinese.
This is about as close to the cows as she'll get. Adah was scared of some of the real animals, but was all about the picture of a bobcat. Gave it a million kisses and didn't want to say goodbye.
Across the Street
Andy split and stacked all this wood we got at the river the other day. I think we're set for next year now.
I laid out all the pennants before getting ready to ship them to AR for their next wedding because they are just so fun. It makes me happy that they are going to be a part of more love memories.
Parenthood party in bed with Elisabeth. Afternoon well spent.
Delivering a table to Sammy and getting some more firewood in return. (I only thought we were done collecting.) So many tall skinny trees! They blow in the wind like the slinky blow-ups at car dealerships.
I got a new table also! And it is now serving as my kitchen prep and storage station.
I knitted a donut!
Even though our house is in shambles we can still enjoy homemade cookies and sorbet.
Nothing like a big snowstorm to get you out of work early! I haven't felt like a kid with a snow day in a long time. We watched a lot of movies and drank hot cocoa.
Knitting a hedgehog for Andy. He's pretty cute.
We got supplies for s'mores on the snow day and never made them! I went ahead and treated myself when Andy was at work.
I left Andy his finished hedgehog when I went to work. When I got home, he had left me a Pop-Tart! True love!
The makeshift kitchen station is growing. It's also now the makeshift workshop and the makeshift storage closet.
Lauren and I knitted/crocheted and gabbed on the dock while the men went for a paddle. Nothing like a weekend escape with good friends!
Clearing and rearranging to get ready....
Everything is getting emptied for D-day. We are working only with essentials these days.
Martin's parking lot
Crazy beautiful sunset!
