    Dare I dream?

    It seems as though Spring has sprung. If even temporarily, it's a sweet reprieve from the Arctic blast of a Winter we've had. The grass is green(ish), and for the moment it is free of the mushy swampiness that has been impeding our traipsing across it for the last week or so.
    And from the looks of Gretta's eyes, the sun is apparently shining.


    The girlies took part in a game, if short, of airplane. Playing Princesses was next, and that was much more fun.


    Maggie has found a "perfect hiding spot, Mom," in our outside TV nook. It would be perfect, you know if it wasn't completely open to the rest of the yard!


    And of course, this gave Emma swift permission to hop atop the nook and strike a pose.

    Even Bebe had a little fun in the sun today. She was missing for approximately 2 hours. Considering she's in heat, and has been feverishly humping anything that will remain stationary for more than a few seconds, I'm a little concerned we may be having some puppies here in the next 64 days or so. My neighbor 4 houses down brought her back, saying Bebe had been sitting on her back porch waiting to go inside. Apparently their house looks a lot like mine. Or Bebe is kinda dumb. I'm sticking with the latter.

    But not all was lost, even if we do end up with some little Shiht's, because my neighbor excitedly invited us to attend the first annual neighborhood "Flamingo Friday". Which I think is code for "letting the kids play in the house of the week's backyard, while the parents drink themselves silly". I don't know about you, but I'm SO THERE!

    I'm jealous of your green grass! (and Friday)

    : )

    Your kids look so cute! (I still can't believe you are so far away.)

    Your girls look so cute running around in capris with the sun shining! I'm SO ready for spring!
    So I'm assuming "Bebe" is a dog? Hopefully so, otherwise, you have a huge problem on your hands!

    I'm all over "Flamingo Friday". What beverage are you bringing and when do you get to host? Are you just going to hand out Pepsi and Root Beer? Because that would be awesome.

    sounds like a normal neighborhood party to me! Imagine what your PTA meetings will be like!

    Check out G's hair-she has tons and is such a little cutie! I love all the pics. The party sounds fun! Go get smashed!

    We had spring for a couple of days and then woke up this morning to snow.

    Did you cut Gretta's hair? It looks so cute.

    I totally hope she humped the neighbors weiner dog, because that would be awesome!

    Flamingo Friday? Where do I sign up? Bring on the Rum and Coke minus the rum....

    Keli said...

    Oh, Meg, you're funny with the "minus the rum..." who do you think you're kidding? You'd be the one dancing on the tables!

    I'm pretty sure if we host a party, no one will show knowing they'll be treated to Mormon slush and Diet Pepsi. Although, Sean's old truck is a magnet for the WT set, and my shining personality ought to reel in a few of the hoochies.

    I am a bit confused about the outdoor TV nook ... what is its official purpose?

    Keli said...

    It's actually a TV nook. I guess the old owner's used to put a TV out there for the parties. I'm not sure we'll use it for that, but who knows.
