DD has a birthday today. Over the weekend, we took her and a friend out to dinner. She loves sushi, so we enjoyed that. Delicious!

A busy week ahead. We’re still taking down Christmas. It doesn’t take as long to take down as it does to put up, but I haven’t been in the mood to do it. I’m grateful that our son and his wife came over Friday to help, and they cleared most of three rooms. That’s a lot, in case you haven’t been here at Christmas… The lights were a big hit with our granddaughter. She had fun just holding them. She thought they were “bootiful.” Later the twins pretended they were a campfire, though there was some disagreement about just where the campfire should be placed. Didn’t take too long to straighten that out. Then they got pillows and blankets and “slept” by the campfire for a while. Fun. 🙂
