Here We Go Again!!
We don't often describe our weather in Colorado as "soggy." But that is what we woke up to this morning after rain most of yesterday and all night long. It felt so good to hear and see a nice, gentle rain watering the earth. God does so much better at watering than we do!
As the day proceeded, the rain turned into snow. It was a very wet, slushy snow which covered the ground for a short time. The tulips I showed you yesterday decided to close up as tightly as possible to stay warm.
I can hardly wait for the sun to come out again (forecast for Sunday) to see what beauty we will behold. In the meantime, Care Bear's big state-wide fun day for the kids in our denomination has been cancelled, because it's so much worse in the Denver area. She's sad. She is quite the social butterfly and was really looking forward to this all day event.
On one of the spring-like days that we had sunshine earlier this week, the girlies got to wear their outfits they got from their other grandma in their Easter baskets. They looked adorable. I fixed their hair - I could only get pictures of Emma.
Today was library day, and I talked Grandpa DC into going with us (I'll explain why he was home in my next post). Lately we've gone to baby story time first, then Feisty's story time. At the early one, there are all kinds of little ones and it is a bit of chaos. But fun chaos. I wish I'd taken my camera. They do lots of interactive stories and songs. There's lots of activity. Katie especially is really getting into the action, clapping and jumping to the music. I wanted DC to go with me, because it's hard to do the activities with two at the same time. But he didn't really get into it - he said he was too shy. It sort of amused me - I told him nobody would be watching him.
The twins enjoyed their first spaghetti dinner (at least at my house). I love the little piece of hamburger on Katie's nose!
Did I tell you you that the last time they weighed, a couple of weeks ago, that they are up to 16 and 18 pounds? And that Katie has taken 4 steps two different times? I haven't seen it yet, but I can hardly wait!
I have to tell you one more cyst story - this one is so cute. Feisty was pushing on it today, apparently the first time she'd noticed it. She asked me what it was, and then asked me if she would have one when she was a grandma. I told her I didn't think so, and I hoped not. She said, "I think I'm going to ask Jesus about that right now." She put her face down on my lap and began praying earnestly. She said, "Dear Jesus, please help me to not have one of these things (while she opens her eyes and points to the cyst) when I am a grandma." I then asked her to pray for me. She closed her eyes again and said, "Dear Jesus, please help Grandma's thing on her arm to go away right away." She opened her eyes, looked at it, and pronounced, "It's smaller!" I love it - there is nothing like the faith of a child.
One more thing that's been marinating in my mind - about Susan Boyle. Did you see her face when two of the three judges made remarks about their reactions to her before she sang? She didn't have a clue that everyone was making faces of derision that immediately changed the second she opened her mouth and began to sing. Oh, what a fickle world we live in. I hope her life isn't ruined by all of this notoriety.
Have a wonderful week-end!
