We’ve been doing some things!
We made salt dough ornaments with Wyatt’s cousin my niece, and my mom.. and also read some books together.
And we went for a chilly hike. We played with cattails – I had no idea that you could treat them like a dandelion with all of their fluff. How cool! We noticed some new developments on this walk too – the water on the pond was beginning to ice up, for the first time this year. And there were far less birds – I guess they have flown to warmer climates! We love watching for all the changes in the landscape and in the natural world.
Then Billy and I had a date night! We went to his work party which was so fun. They had a Motown theme which was fantastic. The band was really amazing and we stayed out later than we have in four years! (11pm guys, we were home by 11..)
Then we went to an art show called The Potter’s Market. Billy’s mom sells her beautiful ceramics pieces here every year, and every year I look forward to going. I also use it as an opportunity to buy special gifts for Wyatt’s team of therapists and teachers. I love supporting local artists and I feel like I am giving something useful and beautiful. The moon ornament is for Wyatt, the blue acorn is for me. I am really pleased with the pieces I picked out this year. I could spend hours here but Billy and Wyatt get bored after twenty minutes – which is probably good for our budget! I could leave with much more, especially since I am happily part of the more clay, less plastic movement!
We also went to see my cousin’s daughters in their play Frozen Jr. which was so cute! They did a fantastic job. We were not allowed to take photos though, so no pictures here!
