Click, Click, Click
I'm a bit annoyed because I can't figure how to post my pictures where I want them. I'm usually pretty bright when it comes to this stuff, but right now I'm not figuring it out. So bear with me and in the next few days, I hope to have the layout the way I'm envisioning it.
Anyway, last night after Denny went to bed, I sat in the sunroom and poured myself a big glass of wine. Of course my camera was laying around since I spend half my days taking pictures of the kids. Well Grace got a hold of it and here is her first official picture.
Not too bad. Once she figured it out, she spent the next 2 hours taking pictures. (I'm not exaggerating either; my batteries were out of juice this morning.) I am still seeing spots from the flash. Now I know how the poor kids feel.
Today was a good day. We had another Keeler family first. Bob's brother Timmy called and said that him and Kelly were going to take Kelly's son to Chuck E Cheese. It was a rainy day here, so that sounded like a good way to spend the day. Grace went on a few rides while Denny walked around staring at everyone's food. Then the adults got in on the fun and played a ton of games of Skee ball. LOVED IT! We ended up with almost 700 tickets, so the kids walked away with a baseball mitt and ball, a slinky, some Bling, Bling (pink ring) and a koush ball. More junk to fill the house with.
When the big mouse himself made an appearance, Grace about ran for the door. I guess there's something spooky about a six-foot-tall rodent that not all kids like.
So now it's Sunday evening and I'm getting the blues because Monday mornings are always the worst. I miss Bob, Grace and Denny miss Daddy, and it feels like an eternity until Friday comes. But being the optimist that I am, I see than silver lining and I know Friday will be here before we know it.
