A whole lotta leaves!

Saturday afternoon was spent doing yardwork. Wait, that isn't entirely true. My husband did yardwork - he blew a TON of leaves. Lily played in said leaves, and I took pictures of Lily playing in them. (hubby got the short end of that stick!) It was fun to watch her - she was having so much fun.




















Actually, the whole weekend was packed with fun. After our "yardwork" Lily and I went and grabbed some hot chocolate with my sister and my niece Logan. Lily and Logan have always loved each other quite a bit, but it seems to have elevated in the last couple months. They are almost inseperable...holding hands, hugging, and Lily saying "Wogee Bear, I yuv you sooo vewy much" about every 15 minutes. It's nice to watch. Late afternoon I went to my friend/neighbor's house to see some bags that she is selling - they are WAY cute and I will let everyone know the site where they can be purchased very soon...great Christmas gifts! In the evening we went out to dinner and to IKEA (my first time) with my sister and her family. Again, much fun was had.
Today was church, lunch, shopping with my mom, and work. All fun...even work.
One more thing: we bought my nephew a newt for his birthday (which he is SO excited about)...but now Lily insists that she wants a monkey-newt for HER birthday. Anyone have any ideas where I might purchase one? hehe

OH what cute and fun pictures. Lily is just so beautiful and she always looks like she is having so much fun.
I am jealous that you went to an IKEA. I have been to an Ikea only once and loved it. We do not have an IKEA near us anywhere. Not even in our state. :(

I have missed seeing that cute little smile of hers. I also missed you in China this time.

Kimber said...

Oh...a monkey newt. Now that is a good one. My oldest often asks for things that don't exist (or were discontinued before he was born!) Good luck with that one!

I love Lily in her puffy coat all bundled up.

Happy Thanksgiving!
