I'm only doing a post because it's been almost two weeks. We're just doing the usual. I've taken a few photos, so here they are:
I posted this photo on Facebook already, but I have to have it in our book. Colin is peeling the candy shell off a Cadbury Mini Egg. He'd done it before and Brian and I laughed and laughed, but didn't get a photo of it. I gave him some mini eggs a few days later and had my camera on stand by just in case he did it again. As Colin would say, "NICE!"
I made strawberry jam two days in a row (Emil is a huge fan of jam). Having helpers while I make jam is ... not so helpful. Everything is hot, everything is breakable and spill-able, and I'm on a time limit. Emil parked his truck in fun places and handed me bottles to put the "JAM?" in. (I find that truck in the funniest situations. One time it had a load of grated cheese in it. Emil called it a Cheese Truck.)
My literal BFF, Kellie, and her husband, Mike, stopped by on their way home from a weekend getaway. We talked and talked and talked. We've been friends for 35 years! I'm so glad she forgave me for kicking her back in 1983 because she is my favorite person.
Kellie let Emil make a dance video for her phone.
Colin likes to put his face between you and your screen. "I watch?!"
You know we are meant to be best friends because she has twin boys who are ten months older than mine. Once again, that has worked out in my favor because no one understands like Kellie. :)
(I'm regretting now that I didn't crop out my feet. Look at that bunion. Look at it.)
