menu plan monday ~ january 30, 2012

We were highly entertained Sunday afternoon watching the twins wrap “presents.” They spent over an hour cutting gift wrap, pulling tape, wrestling with the packaging…so much fun! Pa got a bow, Ma got a box of cereal, Auntie got a box of tea and Sissy got a bowl of chalk.

just a little more tape...

Serious business!

cutting wrapping serious...

They (and we!) had a great time!

    I think (it’s been a while so I’m not sure) that your scrapbook room was the first thing I saw when I started reading your blog. I’d love to see it again!

    Vickie, we’re planning to take all the Christmas decorations down in the SB room tonight, then I’ll take some pictures to share. 🙂 The west side, with the counter and cabinets looks much the same as it has for a long time. But the east side changes from time to time. It used to have a daybed but now has a school desk. DD used it last year, but now does her school work in her room, so I’m trying to decide what to do with the big desk. May leave it there for now…not sure. 🙂 ~~Rhonda
