Has it really been four days since I posted pictures?Gasp! For shame, AC!
Lately, Nikki Dee has been visiting a friend for an afternoon or two each week. This is both good and bad. It’s bad because afternoons are my time with the kids, and I miss out. But it’s good because it gives her company of her own age, and it gives Buppa a slight break.
She needs to take things with her, such as slippers for indoor play and snowsuit pants for outdoor play … and who knows what else. In the event, Mom bought her a backpack to tote these necessities of life. Except when I first put in on her the other day, I had to chuckle as she walked up the street toting a bag that was half as big as she. Yesterday, I remembered to take pictures. Don’t feel too badly for her; it’s really light, and she carries it without a problem.
When I got back into the house after watching her walk safely up the street, Zach was demanding his Buppa, for he awoke somewhat prematurely from his nap. Since we were both somewhat grumpy men, me old and he young, I decided that we should get out of the house. So, we went grocery shopping and both the young and old guy were soon happy and not grumpy.
Then, we drove to the library. I had a book to pick up, and he had many chairs to check out. Oddly enough, he likes to look at books at home, but at the library? Forget it!
This is the outside view from the children’s corner of the library. We haven’t had much snow in total, but I’ve had to shovel a little every morning this week so far. This being our first week of December, I am resigned to it sticking and us being white-covered until late March. We are also expecting our first major dumping on the weekend, so there may be some interesting pics to share early next week. I don’t mind the snow at this time of year; it’s nice for Christmas, and November was kind to us afterall.
