Saturday is a Special Day.



Another day, another forty pictures. :) But I'll just share a few. First, Ethne's "sweet" expressions.

And then, some of Hazel, although taking her picture is like pulling teeth (sheesh, it's as if she gets her picture taken a lot or something!)...even WITH bribing (hence the tic tac), but it was the first time I've ever braided her piggy tails and it was sooo cute! And sheesh...love her big sparkly eyes!

I had a nice day today. Slept in (yay for Brett and movies!), then when Ethne was sleeping I walked to Goodwill (one of my favorite stores) with J and H, and despite Hazel getting very tired and grouchy and tipping over our stroller once, I got a lot of good deals. Wippee!! (as Hazel would say). I got two cute shirts for Hazel (one is in the picture) and an adorable dress for her, a sweater for me, and this for Ethne for her birthday. It is even CUTER in real life. Seriously so adorable. And only......(drum roll) 16 dollars!!! Which I still thought was a little high, until I came home and looked it up online. Now I am way extra-super-duper pleased with the purchase. We'll see if it waits until her birthday or comes out sooner.
Then I went to and ran a few more errands and came home to grilled cheese sandwiches (hit the spot) and yummy almond joy cake that I made with the kids yesterday to celebrate all my family's birthdays in January (Dad, Mom, Andrea, Ethan, Wyatt---Happy Birthday!). It is sooooooooo scrumptious! I'll share the recipe if anyone is interested.
Hmmm, what should I leave you to ponder tonight? Well, once a while back I wrote a list of 50 things I love (it was fun, makes you think...you should all do it. really.), and even though anyone reading this knows me already, since it is a new blog, we can call this a get-to-know-you thingee. Hmm. Anyway. In no particular order:

2. grainaries
3. bargain shopping (thrift stores and garage sales)

17. tiny baby sleeping in your arms

Just curious, what is grainaries?

Am I the only one that caught a common theme in the top 50? I think the recurring theme throughout involved Brett. That's great! It's always good to enjoy the things about the person you love.

Enjoy Indiana, I sure miss it.

Ok. I have three comments. #1- I bought the same little outfit from Target that Ethne is wearing for my soon to be baby!#2- Why graineries? and #3- I have to agree that chokecherry syrup is fantabulously yummy!
