Yesterday we visited both sets of grandparents and ate two Thanksgiving feasts! My parents had a bit of a full house, but not quite all of us at the same time. My brother and his family were leaving as we arrived -- off to his in-laws. My nephew, Seth, and his wife stayed just barely long enough to eat and then they were off to two more celebrations! My nephew Rich and his two kiddos were there longer than we were, and my older daughter Hollyanne and her family were there for quite a bit as well. It was good to see them all. After supper, my sister Jeanne, my mom, B. and her Daddy, Rich and his two kiddos, and I walked up to the school a few blocks away to play on the playground. I didn't need to wear a coat! Amazing weather! I took a few photos, of course. I uploaded about 32 to facebook and flickr, but I'll try to keep it down to just a few here. :-)
After my folks we went to Grandma and Grandpa B's house. Grandma B. really wanted a photo of B with her poinsettias. I tried...but it was B's "run" time right before bed, so I mostly got blurry photos of her not looking at the camera. This is what I'm left with:
More photos of the day on flickr.
We pretty much did NOTHING today, which was NICE!!!! I did try to do a bit of work on my scrapbook space. I wanted to fix up the bulletin board area so that it looked a bit nicer -- it was all cluttered up with a bunch of stuff I ripped out of magazines for inspiration. So, I took all the magazine pages and put them in a clear envelope, used the Cricut to cut out the letters for the word "inspiration" and attached the word to the envelope with colorful paper clips. I was going to glue them on, and I still might, I haven't decided if I like it or not.
B. "helped" me, and her daddy snapped this photo with his iPhone:
I don't like the way I blend in with the chair, making my butt look extra large...but overall, I like the photo and you can see the space a bit better. The clear envelope is just under the bulletin board, hanging from it with a ribbon. Now the bulletin board is ready for other bits of inspiration and photos!
B. made this turkey at daycare on Wednesday:
Here's the conversation...
Me: B, what does a turkey say?
B: Boggle! Boggle! Boggle!
