Mom called and gave me the pleasure of getting the Ella report while Gene was gone. Ella is our newest great niece. She has wonderful blue eyes as so many in our family. Our 3 grandsons all sport blue eyes as well as their dad. Ella will be the one to inherent my childhood doll bed as her mom is our God Daughter. Our grandsons do not show any interest in doll beds, doll cloths or my Revlon doll. Well, they might try to poke the doll's eyes out as so many little boys tried to in the past.
|Our gifts and fire|
The day has been spent working on a program for a meeting on Thursday. Mostly copy, cutting and pasting then printing. And sitting by a fire. This is the first fire for this fall and winter season. The weather has not been cold enough, long enough to deal with the stacking and carrying. Plus, the whole getting things put in place from the Edna move changed our life somewhat. Anyway, it has been pleasant to have that extra, cozy warmth of a wood fire.

One or the other great parts of the day was looking at facebook and seeing kids in snow! From two great-great nephews in Oklahoma, to Chris & Barbie's two boys & dogs in Kansas City, to all the kids of our young friends here in Springfield. All shared the same smiles, the bundled bodies, head to toe and fingers too. All just enjoying a simple act of nature and school officals, the snow day.
Thanks to all the moms, dads, friends and relatives that on this snow day used all sorts of technology to brighten my day.
