We have wonderful friends, who shall be referred to as the "Olds" (for their protection). They are such a fun bunch to be around. Recently, they invited us up to their lake house for the day. We had a blast. Bert stayed behind with Hail since some golf tournament was on that day, which was actually fine by me. Yes, three at the lake is still relaxing and a much needed break. Especially when Hail is not one of those three!
Dancing on the dock-- Boats passing by have actually stopped to watch these two "perform."
Of course, more of this never hurts when trying to feel better about a situation....
Her Highness and I were treated to a Girl's Night with "our" BFF Dixie. We had planned to have dinner, get pedicures then go for dessert. What we didn't plan was the following...
The Little Mermaid had done too much flipping in the pool and created a major dread-lock in the back of her hair. There was no way to get it out, except to cut it. Fortunately, she loved it! Afterwards, the three of us completed our much needed dinner/pedi/dessert run. Gotta love some Snow Biz! (Yes my face is already starting to swell. It will only get worse in the next 20 weeks, thanks for asking.)
This Pretty Princess is finally able to speak of her new brother without tears filling her eyes. She enjoys thinking up names for him. And, when we see newborns she gets excited and says, "Will our new brother be that small, really?"
A couple of days ago she said, "Momma, it's just not fair. Now I'll have to wait until I'm SEVEN before I get a baby sister." I spewed my coffee all over the couch.
Bert's response: "What's one more when you already have five? People already think we're crazy."
--Yes, and you five are the reason.
