Let’s see how far I get with this – we’ve been too busy living to spend time writing about living lately! So here’s what I’ve got saved up…
According to my camera, this is from last June. But I think the date is wrong, and it was actually October. Either way, it’s been a while since I went through the pics on the camera!
Here is the little altar I put together for the Day of the Dead. Mom’s only in the picture because it was the best/most easily accessible one I had of Dad. The had and cookbook are my grandmothers (Eva Krivanek), gum drops were one of my other grandmother’s favorite treats (Margaret Courtney). The box and frog puzzle my dad made, and the peanuts were one of his favorite snacks. The rosary was also Grandma Krivanek’s, and the little pictures on the right are of me with my grandmothers. That was all I could dig up at the last minute when I did this, but I’ll be a little more prepared this year (if the things aren’t still in storage! More on that in a later post…)
This was in November. One of them was confused about the weather forecast. If I remember right, it was Samantha.
They take good care of each other…
…and Pooh Bear.
The nativity set the girls played with. They’re taking a nap while they wait for baby Jesus.
The meltdowns have begun, so I’ll have to finish this later.
