Ava helped me bake some yummy brownies last week - and she actually DID help! She followed my directions, and got everything stirred up, nice and well. FINALLY. She's beginning to give back to the family. Ha! Had I only cooked the brownies long enough, they would have been perfect. At least someone followed directions well...
And her latest, positively most annoying thing that she's picked up lately is a new word. Dude. As in, "Later, dude." "Thanks, dude." "Bye, dude." O.M.G. If I have to hear that word one more time, I might rip my ears off. Oh, and then she added it to our names - I'm now Mommy-dude, and Scott's Daddy-dude. Cute the 1st 10 times. Not so cute 201 times later.
Hiding before making the brownies. Not sure why. BUT, notice the headband?
I asked her why she lined up all of her Little People outside of the house. She told me they were watching the fire. I was never able to clarify if the house was burning down, or if they had a fireplace inside. In any case...creative!
Yesterday, my friend Tina and I went with a group on a winery tour in WI. We had a great time - and I bought my first bottle of port. Yum! After the tour (and our drinks), we went exploring on the grounds.
This is the main building - they hold weddings in the field we were in, and also polocrosse games. It was a lovely place - can't wait to go back again!
I do believe this is our sampling of the port...
So, dudes, hope you had a most excellent weekend. This Mommy-dude is off to do a pedi, and some relaxing. Happy Memorial Day!
