His mommy said he knows the animal lovers!

Haven't chosen yet, but I am going online to check out the grannysquare-ripple afghan that Merry Carey told us about. I love that design!

I had a fabulous little road trip to see my sister & niece. We had fun browsing around, and then had a delicious lunch. Then, Aly & I played in the kids area there. Here's a pic of us playing school:

I made a few stops on the way home. There's a beautiful church in Independence, so I stopped for a few photos. Here's one of them..

Great pics of your day! Looks like you and your sis and niece had a special afternoon.
Thanks for sharing with all of us!

I had a lovely day...weather was, as you know, sunny and relatively mild. I got out to the malls to look for some Easter goodies for my kids and little grandson. My husband keeps saying, "aren't the kids a little too old for those baskets?" LOL...but I love gifting people and I can't help myself!
I also bought my expected grandson, (due date May23rd) his own crib. I don't think my little Jack will be ready to go into a big bed as he will be just 20 mo. when the next guy makes his appearance!
That makes it all seems so real...Nana to TWO little boys.
I am super excited and so blessed!
Christmas 2013 should be wildly chaotic around our house...but I love it and can't wait!

Instead of going to Louisville or Detroit, I convinced all of you to just fly here to Indianapolis. That way we were in between Santa Claus, Indiana and Bronners. Then Instead of renting hotel rooms, all of you stayed here at my apartment building since all of my neighbors have spare bedrooms and air mattresses. It was like a giant sleep over that involved setting up a TV in the yard for Christmas movies and Caroling in the middle of summer. Then we went out and rented a couple of passenger vans and made an overnight trip to Santa Claus, IN. Then we came back here for a few days show I could show you around town. Then we made another overnight trip up to Bronner's and camped out in tents in Meceka's front yard. It was a blast and a little weird. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
Awesome dream!!!

You deserve a lazy day every now and then.

Talk about a day, I left for the grocery store at 11am and didn't get home until a little after 8pm. That's what happens when I run into my sister though. Not to mention the fact that Meijer was packed. I don't even know if I'v ever seen it that busy on black Friday. You'd think we were getting 10 feet of snow instead of 10 inches. I'll be back to get caught up after the Skillet is over.
