Things that make me happy
From today after the doctor visit, Emma paints quietly and Sadie tinkers with a box of thingamajigs secretly in her room. Emma soon falls asleep in a cozy spot.
Later, Sadie and Nathan strike up a very productive game of birdie. Many new records are set with the best being 16 hits, a great day for the birdie game.
" Two rackets from a rummage sale: $1
One birdie: complementary
A great round of the birdie game: Priceless" (Nathan)
But keep your pants on, the greatness is not over yet. Behold fancy dessert night.
A scoop of vanilla ice cream with pink and yellow sprinkles, topped by a scoop of chocolate ice cream with pink and yellow sprinkles all crowned with a glowing candle! Well, Emma had everything except no spreen-tles. Sadie was giggling with glee and gushing giddily at the presentation and blurted out, " I love the candles!"
I think we have more fancy dessert nights in store. Last night Sadie was explaining her greatest dessert to me, which included a brownie that has choclate puddling inside topped with chocolate ice cream topped with chocolate sauce topped with whipped cream topped with chocolate sprinkles. Sounds down right fancy to me.
