two sleeps till Christmas

Our son called last night and asked if I could watch the twins today while he does some Christmas shopping. This morning I woke to the phone…we’re here! Oops! I scurried around and finally let them in. The girls were excited because they had been allowed to sit in the FRONT seat of the car […]

the twins

Since I’ve been missing in action lately, I thought I’d prime the blog posting pump with a few pictures of the twins. They do add a lot of fun and joy to our lives! Rose Red is a bit taller than Snow White, as you can see. This is just after haircuts. The last time […]

snow ice cream treat

Last weekend, we had the beautiful fluffy snowfall. The girls had a great time playing in the yard. And had fun eating lots of snow, too… There was enough snow on the ground to allow us to make snow ice cream. While the girls warmed up with some hot chocolate, I mixed the ice cream. […]

helping Pa open his present

While our younger son and his wife were visiting from Seattle, we exchanged gifts with them. They shipped the wrapped presents ahead so we had them under the tree. We save boxes this time of year, and I used their shipping box to wrap a present for DH. Lo and behold, one of the gifts […]

working on the glass tree

The tree in our upstairs guest room is decorated with ornaments made of spun and molded glass. Today, our son and daughter-in-law came by to help decorate the tree. It took all afternoon, but they stuck with it. The twins are fascinated by the whole decorating process. Today was no different. It’s fun to watch […]

happy birthday!!

They’re five! We had cake and ice cream this evening for the twins. Lots of fun! They practically squealed when they saw the pile of presents. Snow White’s favorite presents? Dora’s friend Boots the monkey and her blue feather boa! Rose Red and Snow White…happy birthday girls. ~~Ma

menu plan monday ~ july 30, 2012

The twins stopped by this afternoon. We had a fun hour or so before Daddy came back to take them home again. The first question they always ask is, “Where’s Pa?” Pa was at work, so we took a phone picture to send to him. Don’t you think those faces would make Pa come running […]

happy, happy birthday, great-ma!

Today is DH’s mother’s 95th birthday! Happy, happy birthday! Our older son and his family went along to help celebrate. And everyone enjoyed brownies and ice cream! The twins couldn’t wait to see the candle lit. We are very blessed to have Beulah / Mom / Grandma / Great-Ma with us. A sweet and lovely […]

picking raspberries

The twins and their daddy stopped by this morning. The girls heard Pa say something about the raspberries being ripe and they were off like a shot. Time to pick! Wearing Ma’s garden hat… We’re looking forward to a good crop. And lots of help picking. 🙂 ~~Rhonda

trip to the memphis children’s museum and zoo

Wondering why we went to Memphis to go to a zoo instead of to St. Louis? Much as we love the St. Louis zoo, they don’t have pandas. And the girls wanted to see pandas. When we looked up the nearest panda place, it turned out to be Memphis. Four hours away isn’t too bad. […]
