Bill and I went to the grocery store very early this morning. Later the market will be full of football game shoppers! Go Broncos! (Go Seahawks, too!) Finally, I did some flower shopping! More of that later.
Last night we gathered at Kelli's for dinner. EVERYONE was there! Our whole group! Us, four kids, four spouses, nine grands! I got side-tracked and neglected my camera, but I did take these few cute pics.
The boys. Sweet messy faces. Finn's lopsided grin. LOVE.
Millie slept in yesterday and decided to wear her pajamas all day. Smart girl. Aria ALWAYS wears a headband and MOST OF THE TIME, a tutu. Another smart girl.
April helped Kelli hang more curtains. I love black and white buffalo checked curtains! Another smart girl!
I traveled down to the daylight basement to find more grands. Aw! Bird always gives me a lovely greeting! GRANNY! Isn't Cadence's hair so cute? I love her glasses, too. I love HER, period. She's a dream. Miss Bug gave me lots of hugs and cuddles, too. Oh, how I love grands! Sam and Lizzy arrived later after I lost track of my camera. Jeff and Christie came and brought Christie's nephew, but again the camera was not handy.
While in the basement, I looked around a bit. Let's play I Spy. Do you see a few fairies? How about Cinderella's fairy godmother? Can you find the prince? He's taking a nap. I like the wooden shelf with the plant on top. Sweet little things.
Aria the darling. I got to hold her while she napped through dinner. Three year olds get so tired. They don't necessarily need naps but they aren't completely ready to give them up, so we often get exhausted "crashes" just before it's time to eat.
Okay, back to the flower shopping. Tulips are SO juicy! Don't they look good enough to make into a fine tulip salad? I pressed one in the teacher edition of the sixth grade textbook and it DID spread a bit of juice on that particular page. Ooooops.
I like this combo - tulips and yellow roses. Lovely.
And the flower corner has hydrangeas! So many colors! SO beautiful!
Kitchen herbs! It's too early for me to buy these pretties. I don't have a sunny enough spot for them and if I place them on the window sill in our bedroom, they might freeze. It is winter and winter in Denver can be harsh.
I chose the hyacinth at the top (yay for bulbs!) and pink tulips. I'm so glad!
Bill's still extremely jet-lagged so he's napping away upstairs. I did ALL my ironing yesterday. Every bit. The basket is empty.
There is chicken in the cast iron pot and IF I watch the football game, I shall eat salt and vinegar potato chips (crisps?) and drink root beer. That's a simple pleasure, right?
And tomorrow? Another free day! GRATEFUL!
