In A Cure Mood

Heard 'In Between Days' at the gym today and it put me in a mood for more of one of the greatest bands of the 80's. So here we go...

Aeries in December

Aeries is having a really fun December. She is all tuned in to the lights, the music, the warmth, the excitement and she has been a really really sweet girl as well....so it's been a lot of fun for all three of us.

"Are deez for meeeeeee?"

Making something yummy with play-doh for Grandma Syl to enjoy ("don't woe-ey Gwama, iss juss petend").

We drove around the neighborhood and looked at all the Christmas lights. She insisted on taking her "gunnoculars" (and a blanket and a stuffed animal).

Watching "How Duh Gwinch Stoad Quissmas"

Playing with trains. In other words a 'normal' afternoon.

Wearing a big smile. She does this a lot.

Hummingbirds in the Snow

We had a bit of a snowstorm here this week but that didn't stop our Hummingbird family from coming to the feeder. We saw them as much or even more than usual. We tried to change out the feeder every few hours because their sugarwater was feezing quickly. We left the floodlights on near the feeder and they used it to keep warm. They ate until dark.

There was a feud going on all day between these 2... or 3. You can see the feud taking place from about 1:00 to about 1:40.

Aeries And Grandma Rose Make Cookies

Grandma Rose invited Aeries to come over and help her make cookies. Aeries couldn't wait!!!

Driving to Grandma's house, Aeries talks about the coffeeshop's sign that somebody ran into, gets all the crumbs out of the french fry box, teaches Grandpa how to sing and dance, wonders how the chimney/Santa thing works, calls Grandpa a 'loggin' loco' (a train), looks for her fruit things, tells Grandpa to be 'brave of bees', discusses termites, and.....hi Grandma!!

Aeries serenaded us while the cookies were baking.

Nothing beats warm chocolate chip cookies.

Afterwards there was time to play some hide-and-seek.

Grandma Rose and a wiggling giggling blanket. Not sure where Aeries is.
