I'm about to learn about the intricacies of probate. I need to get my dad's piece of property transferred into my name. I'm selling it along with my property and need it to be legally clear and in my name to do that. I've just started corresponding with a lawyer (the wife of my realtor) and I hope it won't be too tricky. Another learning experience!
Have any of you noticed the Pioneer Woman dishware at Walmart? As a Christmas present to myself I've purchased a few pieces. My old mismatched dishes are headed for the thrift store. I still need a few pieces, but I'm purposely buying only a few settings. Just enough to have the kids over for dinner. Any more is superfluous. :) The colors are sort of washed out in this photo, but you get the idea.
The grandgirls gifts are wrapped and ready. I'll probably have Christmas breakfast with the kids and grands. They usually have a full schedule of visiting other grandparents later in the day.
This is my newest crèche. I bought it at the Dollar Tree! The little scene behind them is a manger scene I found among my mother-in-laws belongings. She glued a picture from a magazine onto a piece of wood. It's become one of my traditional decorations.
I babysat Audrey and Hazel yesterday. Micah had a dentist appointment to get some wisdom teeth pulled, so Adam drove her and they took Adele with them. We had a nice day together watching movies, coloring, splashing around in the kitchen sink, and playing Candy Land among other things. One of the highlights was when the conversation turned to flying kites. (I don't remember how that happened, but anything is possible with little people!) Three year old Hazel was describing to me the many problems that can arise when flying a kite. They can go over the pasture fence. They can get stuck in a tree. But she remembers vividly when her kite went way up high in the sky. "Up high in God's town!" Such exclamations of delight warm a grandma's heart. :)
