Memorial Monday Morning

We are enjoying a slow family morning here in Wyoming. We have plans later tonight, but for the morning and early afternoon we are just enjoying the slow pace. We had a leisurely breakfast as Eric and I discussed his newest work of art, more on that soon.

Cordelia practiced eating like a big girl. This means she tried to not spill or zone out and spin in her chair. She was mostly successful in her endeavor. Although she did end up with a unibrow from her vegetable juice. This means that she holds the cup up against her face and the top part, wet from a previous gulp, touches in between her brows and leaves a red unibrow.

Elise mastered 3 steps last night and seems to have a new found confidence. She also had a tooth poke through over the weekend, so she is full of diva demands. She handed over a list of demands for her dressing room that included: lavender candles, bottled water from Issiquah, a monocle, a marzipan sculpture of her bear.

Oh, and we've used the long weekend to work on a few projects. We painted two of our stairs, how restrained.

I love those stairs! Are you painting only those two?
And Cordelia's bun, it's so wild! Love it.
I have never had chokecherries. I have never seen them in the grocery stores here, are they tart or sweet?

AND, Cordelia did a great job of chewing only when her lips were closed when I watched them last night. I was so proud!

Yes, just two stairs. We like it just a bit off. Cordelia's bun is her overnight hairdo. The chokecherry jam is sweet, but the berry itself is bitter.

I wish there was a "like" button for these comments. Anyways, thanks Maria Rose!
