The race is on. Can I create this blog faster or can Alicia make chocolate chip cookies faster. Last time I made chocolate chip cookies (3 weeks or so ago) it took me an hour to get the batter mixed up, she just put the first batch in the oven in 13 minutes, and that was with a new recipe, I think she's gonna win. Yup, she won.
Well, we had a productive weekend. Alicia noticed that Home Depot received their annual shipment of azaleas. We like picking up a few 1 gallon plants when they're cheap. We snagged 12 for $2.48 each. All we had to do was plant them.
Three hot-pink ones went over with the hydrangias to try and fill in over there a bit. Three pink ones (a new color for us) went in the bed with the sandbox. We'll probably add another 1 or 2 in there. And then six purple ones went in the so-called "way back" flower bed. Two by the apple tree, two near the pear tree, and two truly in the way back where we'd tried some elephant ears last year.
Here's some pictures from snow storm number 2.
Eli's friend Rachel came up to play, they had fun.
The next day Eli tried to figure out how he could put the snowballs in his car. He never figured this one out.
Emily discovered pig-tails.
Story time with dad. I had confined myself to the couch during my recovery. Emily brought me a book to read and Eli decided to join her.
Emily had fun with a pair of Alicia's shorts.
This evening Eli appeared decked out "as a spaceman". He created this creation all him self, absolutely no input from us. Emily may have provided some input but we didn't. I've attached a video of him describing his outfit.
Sorry that it's sideways
