Dogwoods, y'all.

Had a lot of fun tonight, playing in paint and visiting with a couple of friends I've not seen in a LONG time!

One of the Junebugs has a Big birthday coming up this week! So glad we were able to be together to celebrate our friend.

just hanging out

Last week I was in the Classic City to help Kate with these boys while Jay was out of town. Poor Banks had the crud and didn't feel great, but sweet...both of them. We did a lot of what Bo calls just hanging out.

Happy to wait in the high chair
until someone gets around to serving his supper.

Salad and pizza, a favorite!

Blue bath time. This could have gone on for hours.

Banks' favorite sentence and it has been for a while. 

School wore this one out...

...but this one was ready to ride!

How sweet is Bo?
He's asking Banks what he wants out of the toy basket. 

Bo and I spent a lot of time playing train.
I discovered I am an excellent track arranger!

B's newest

Met B's new grandbaby today. She's precious, of course. 

It's hard to believe that, between us, we have nine grandchildren so far! We could never have imagined THAT during our days at the ADPi house!

Trains, Planes, and a Dance

I went and got this little fella for a spend-the-night Friday and oh, my, the conversations. I learned that trains are too loud, that you can see airplanes at the 'airpork', and that excavators dig up and move dirt. That was in the first fifteen minutes of the trip back to my house. He is a talker and E.W. and I got so tickled at the things he'd say and do. We love being grandparents.

first weeks of the year

Other than time with grandchildren and both of our mothers, the first weeks of the year have been very low key. I've done a great deal of puttering around the house and have spent a lot of time inside my head...reminds me of a favorite quote:

“The ordinary arts we practice every day at home 
are of more importance to the soul 
than their simplicity might suggest.” Thomas More
