My parents watched the kiddos for a bit for the early evening on Friday. I had an appointment at the end of the day, and Scott headed up north for his last hunting weekend of the year (and yes, he did get another deer this weekend...) My parents picked G up from daycare, and then met Ava at the house when she got off of the bus. Ava was such a big helper to my parents, which I know they appreciated. And G walked all the way from the fireplace to the couch (probably 7' or so.) He is one tough little guy to contain, although he does know the word "no"...but he will generally smile when he hears it, and keeps on doing whatever he shouldn't be doing. Sigh...
My parents came over on Saturday to spend the evening with us. They picked up dinner for all of us, which included a cute little pizza making kit from Papa Murphy's for Ava. She had fun decorating her Mini Murph pizza, and said that it was really tasty! We're going to have to remember that for future fun family nights!
Hangin' out with Grandpa Doug
Grandma Karen and Sassy Ava!
This afternoon, Ava and I are going to a candy making class for three hours. I have no idea why it's going to take three hours to make candy, but it should be fun, nonetheless. I'm hoping she can stay focused for three hours and not lose interest in why we're there. We shall see!
All of our snow has melted, which seems weird for this time of year...last time I let the dogs outside, I noticed it felt like spring. The area of the yard that the dogs go to is a soupy, muddy mess - makes me miss the packed snow! Scott and I are going to have to get creative next spring, and make sure that part of the yard is finished first, so we're not dealing with months of endless mud!
