Hey, so everyone around here is all excited because it’s Super Bowl Sunday and the Atlanta Falcons are in it this year! I’m not a sports fan and I have no idea who even plays for the Falcons, nor do I feel much state pride (because I’m not from this state) BUUUTTTT I think it’s really cool to see everyone getting excited about the same cause. With politics running amuck these days, and causing all kinds of division, it’s nice to see some unity here.
Look what our local WalMart did with a bunch of boxes of Coca-Cola! Just for reference, those bottles below it are 2 liters bottles – this display is big!!
SO! Here we are and we’re going to watch the Super Bowl. I haven’t watched a football game in probably a decade, so this should be weird, lol, but we’re having honey buffalo meatballs, potato salad, mac & cheese, tortilla chips and homemade salsa, so who cares?!
I ran some errands with the kids yesterday after taking Stephen to work. We dropped off the recycling, mailed the electric bill, and went to the library. We went to a new (to us) nursery and looked at fruit trees and possible things to grow this spring. I found a few shirts for Samuel at a thrift shop which are super
cute manly, too. ^_^
And he (Samuel) is being such a sweet little learner these days. He wants to grow his own fruit trees after our nursery visit. And last night, he got some paper out and wrote a bunch of letters and copied several words just because he’s interested in learning to write and spell!
Exciting news: Elizabeth is learning to crawl! She’s been making her way around by rolling, scooting and who-knows-what-else (it seems magical at times, how she gets from one place to the next!) but now we’re seeing her get in the crawling position and she ALMOST has it! Aww, my baby is becoming mobile. :D
Well, our new stove arrived bright and early on Wednesday morning! It’s a Whirlpool and it’s lovely. It works great but it’s not very user-friendly when it comes to cleaning the top. See the cast iron grating on top? It all has to be moved when even a small spill happens. I’m not complaining (ok, I am) but it’s a strange design. :P I’d never seen one like this until it showed up in my kitchen. Does yours have this? The delivery guy said this is a new way that a lot of brands are making them. ??
