Sunday Morning Waffles and Legos

This morning as I was drinking my tea I heard the porch gate open. Little Mikey escaped from the cottage and came in wearing jammies and boots. Apparently he remembered being told that he was invited for waffles this morning. I texted Andy to let him know that Mikey had arrived ahead of schedule.  He got Holly dressed and sent her down too.

We made Belgian waffles, which turned out yummy. After breakfast Papa played with the Lego farm set with them on the floor

We are having another rainy day here, so inside activities are the plan today.

3 Monkeys on a Shelf

This was all Mikey's idea. I turned around and he was up sitting with the monkeys.

I missed the whole month! Work has kept me pretty busy, but here are some Thanksgiving highlights. 

We had Thanksgiving at Tim's. He made the most delicious smoked turkey - so good.  In fact the whole meal was yummy. Turkey, garlic mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, Brussels sprouts. Stuffing by Karol. Pie balls by Andy.  

We went over in the motor home, and Mikey rode with us. 

We spent the night, and then the next morning, had breakfast and headed for home.

A Little Princess

Every little girl, at least once in her life, should have a princess dress made especially for her.  This one is Holly's.

Simplicity.  Or so the package said. 

It took an entire evening to figure out the bodice inset.

Another evening to figure out those puffy sleeves. 

We were getting worried.  Two and a half days for the skirt. Not just a skirt, a built in slip, a skirt, and a fluffy overskirt.

Next came yard after yard of hemming. And a belt to finish the trim.

The finished product.

The princess in all her finery.

And little skeleton buddy
