Friday and Saturday were spent having a little slumber party with my grandsons- where Peanut excitedly led Baby G. and I from one activity to another- sitting "cross-cross applesauce" while he played "teacher", puzzling, game playing, playdough-meal-making, Lego building, car racing, etc. and multiple rounds of the "clean-up" song between each one. We settled in for a little Max and Ruby before bedtime, then woke up to SNOW! Not a lot, but enough to completely thrill them. So much fun!

On Sunday, I actually had a moment straight from the old (1988!) Folger's holiday commercial when Little Man and his girlfriend (I need to come up with a blog name for this sweet girl) showed up at the house. They only live and hour and a half away, but man, I miss them when weeks go by until I see them. The little things that used to really bug me when Little Man lived at home - laundry everywhere, towels on the bathroom floor, dirty dishes, etc.- actually make me a little giddy now. Funny how that works! More giggling, playing and laughing ensued with them- trivia games, meals together and multiple topics of conversation ranging from wine to movies to "remember when". I loved every minute of it.
And, Sister had the day off today, so I got some bonus time with her and the boys at our neighborhood playground.

Happy Holidays are here, for sure! I hope they are for you, too :) Now I'm off to work on some paintings for the Kristkindl Markt. Here's a little sneak peek at a couple of new ones I started today.
