Jeff's parents came for a visit and brought a whole chicken and all the fixings for chicken and dumpling soup. (Yea, I dropped off the whole vegetarian thing again). LaRae taught me how to make whole wheat dumplings and we worked happily in the kitchen together. Such a warm and fuzzy time. She's an amazing person and great cook. I've learned so much from her. Spent the whole weekend cooking and talking and enjoying each others company...
...and kicking back by the fire. Enjoyed a GREAT movie that I was dying to see, also: Secretariat. LOVED it. Beautifully acted by Diane Lane and I love the strength and determination of the main character. So inspiring!
Watching the guys shoveling Sat morning. Jeff & his dad were so sweet and took 2 hours out of their day to replace my windshield wiper blades that were shot. And that was after shoveling and clearing snow off the porch roof for an hour. What good men we've got!
In the afternoon, we girls ventured out a bit to a craft store to find some fun things for Ruby's party and some cute winter projects. The boys watched every shoot 'em up, gun 'em up movie they could get their hands on and kicked back with a few beers. Ruby had some great quality time with Grammy when we got home. It was so sweet. I love how close she is with her grandparents.
We ended the weekend with Disney's Princess On Ice show. A sweet friend couldn't use the tickets and offered them up to us at half price! We were so happy to go and grateful. Rubes really liked it although the intermission threw her off. I came back with those
Hard to take good pics there. This is about the only one that turned out at all. Anyway, hard to tell in pics, but real magical in person. Really a cute show and a fun end to a very nice weekend.
