Andrea and I have been having fun experimenting with still life photography. Â No one had to be asked twice to help clean up when we were finished with this project.
Audrey taught me how to do embroidery.Â I made a picture of a princess. I did all of it but one shoe and part of the hair.

One of the first things we noticed when we walked into Grandma’s house was a handwritten warning that Audrey designed the last time we were in Colorado. While we really dislike rattlesnakes, the memory did make us smile.
Our friend, Mark Daniels, was there drawing caricatures and discussing art.Â The “charge” for getting a caricature done was to ask a question about what he does.Â Then he would pay them with a two minute drawing.
All day today the kids have been whispering and extra giggly. After soccer practice, I came home to discover a surprise half birthday party for me! The kids decorated the table with love notes and paper dogwood flowers they had made. We had rhubarb pie and ice cream for dessert. Megan brought me some handpicked flowers. Mark bought me a planter with some herbs the kids chose for me to grow.
I am one extremely spoiled Momma!
