Fancy a Blueberry...

The Gus

Yes, that's right, Gus came to visit. It was a glorious President's/Valentines Weekend spent laughing, playing in the snow, perusing rock memorabilia, and did I mention laughing.

Every night Madison and Gus went sledding at our local park and then would come home to the fire, roasting marshmallows and gabbing. I loved hearing the giggles and seeing the mischievous grins as I would pass through.

Harper enjoyed The Gus, too!

On our way to Cleveland's lake shore to visit the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.

Along the way we stopped by this itty bitty boat to see that the lake had frozen over.

TaDaaaaaaaaaa....the girls had a great time looking at Jimi Hendrix's flamboyant threads, early Beatles everything, the giant Phish hotdog, and Elvis's purple Cadillac. It truly is an amazing museum with so much interesting rock history.

A day well spent!

All my girls! It was a beautiful weekend with a lot of memories and smiles. It warmed my spirit to see Madison so happy, not only to see her best friend, but to also show off her new hometown. There was a sense of pride and acceptance that felt good. Although we were sad to see her go, it won't be long until we are in Austin....and reunited once again for more giggles.

Madison went with Sage and Auntie Anna to get haircuts this past weekend. Judging from the pictures I am sure that all would agree it was a successful trip.

Getting a little tired of the photo session, but just one more...

Beautiful with Bangs!

Snow Bunnies

We had the pleasure of enjoying the Thornton-Taylors this past weekend. It was cold and glorious! Madison and Sage bundled up and braved the weather.

Harper Belle has reached a new milestone...she now gives kisses i.e. open mouth face attacks. Madison is her favorite victim and while sometimes there is a little bit of biting the end result is a sweet sugar!

Living Room Redux

The past couple of weeks we have been sprucing up our living room with blue paint, new curtains and a new arrangement. Above is our "before."

And the "after."

I sewed some new curtains and added a little color with rosettes. Matty was a little worried that the flowers might girlify his man room, but the overall effect turned out great.

It is a work in progress and we hope to get some shelves put up in the office area in the near future. Now the vibe is much cozier and livable/lovable.
