|My handsome honey|
It was a quick trip. We went up Thursday night and came home Sunday morning. We let Parker stay with friends and he came home with Denise and Shelby the following week. Denise stayed for a few days then had to head home and she left Shelby with us for a few more days. It was wonderful having Shelby here. Piper loves Shelby. And it was so nice for me to have someone to play with Piper while I got a few things done. I was sad when her father came to pick her up. I can't wait to see them again (Denise and Shelby that is).
Piper has become the biggest ice cream freak. She loves it. The only problem is if you try to wipe her mouth she thinks you're trying to take her ice cream and she flings it on the floor. Not fun. Big mess. Don't like it.

Ben and Jerry's.
I've been knitting and crocheting. Parker is getting ready to start football. Aaron is working and still trying to get the first leg completed for his pilots license. You know how they say a boat is just a hole in the water that you throw money into. Well, with flying, you might as well just toss hundreds of dollars into the air a week. But he loves it, so there you go. But then with that reasoning I need to buy my own sheep and farm, because I love yarn. Shh, don't tell him I said that. Really, I am very supportive (most of the time) of his flying.
And then there is Piper. Sweet, ornery Piper. She is really starting to get a bit of an attitude! She knows what she likes and that's about it. She will now start crying "OWIE" if she doesn't get her way. She is dancing constantly and has started singing. I overheard her singing the ABC's the other day, just ABC and a bunch of gobledegook but it's a start. She is such a ham too. She loves to stand in front of the mirror in the entry way and sing and dance to herself. And she'll say "Awww, pretty" when she see's she has a bow in her hair.
And finally, yesterday was my birthday. I used to get so excited for my birthday. Now, ehhh. And at the yarn store yesterday the lady that worked there saw the little bunny I made Piper. And she asked Piper "Did your Grandma make that for you?" Nope not her grandma. Happy birthday to me! Way to go bitch! Anyway, the rest of the day was nice. Aaron and the kids got me gift certificate to my favorite yarn store (where I was insulted), and took me to lunch at Eammon's for fish and chips. Then we came home for a swim and finished the day with some lovely peanut butter torte.
