We took advantage of the fact that I was off work today and planned a FABULOUS family day!!!
We went to Dollar Tree and Katelyn picked out three new puzzles and a jump rope. Such joy...and all for $4.
Then we went to Explorium because they were doing New Year's activities. Katelyn ran from exhibit to exhibit like her pants were on fire.
Then we went out to eat. Katelyn was happy as can be because she got her OWN sandwich, bag of chips and lemonade. (Usually she just gets part of whatever we're eating.) But today was family day and Katelyn's a big girl.
After lunch we went to the library...the big one downtown. We go to our local branch all the time but she'd never been to the main branch. In honor of our big, fun day Katelyn got her very own library card and got to check out her own books. Who knew this would all happen so fast. I swear it was yesterday when she came home.
Katelyn took a big nap when we got home and since the weather was beautiful today and we haven't seen a day with no snow on the ground in literally a month, we took advantage and got the yard cleaned up...leaves all raked into the compost...old plants pulled up from the garden....patio furniture and clothesline in the garage (I know we should have done this a month ago, but winter pounced on us and we weren't ready for it to stick around.)
Today was lovely!
Tomorrow we're going to get up...sit around in our jammies...eat pumpkin waffles and watch the Rose Parade.
Happy New Year everyone! Happy New Year....
