When Emma was over this past weekend, she insisted that Sophie and Charlie needed more toys. Of course, we went to Pet Smart and she helped me pick out quite a few. I got some shots today of Charlie with the new ball and Sophie and Charlie playing "tug of war" with a cow. Sophie is really into play with Charlie now - 2 weeks after his arrival upset the balance of her world.

Emma always request waffles for breakfast after a sleepover. I let her dump all of the ingredients and stir. After her waffle breakfast, she finished up her valentines so she could take the ones home that she made for Mommy and Daddy. After we went to Pet Smart and Emma picked out some new "lovies" (Emma's term for stuffed toys) for Charlie, we met her mother at Target and Emma picked out a princess baby and an Oreo snack.
Emma came over for a sleep over at Nana's this evening. In preparation, I gathered some art supplies and valentine embellishments so she could make valentines. She did a great job and had a lot of fun! She ate a great dinner - steak and baked potato and we had a popcorn party later watching "Belle and the Beast."

We had the first sunny day after many days of rain today. I got outside and captured a shot of the blue sky and a flowering shrub that has been confused by our warm then cold weather. I captured Charlie in the morning in our front hall and Dan in front of his laptop in the evening. The light from the laptop was great for the shot!

I was in Greenville on the 24th and stopped by Emily's to wish her a happy birthday and drop off her gift. She and the boys were in the back yard enjoying the first sunny day in a while. Noah and Bobby were digging in the mud and having a great time! As I was leaving, Emily packed them up in the stroller and took them to the park. I got so may great shots that I uploaded the entire group.

It has been raining for days and my photos on January 23 were taken in my kitchen of our morning frittata (bacon, cheddar, roasted red pepper, and spinach), the items on top of my antique pie safe, my antique rolling pin collection, a lid from an antique coffee pot, and a detail of the tin on the antique pie safe that holds dishes, napkins, and placemats.
