An afternoon with the girls

I had a wonderful day and hope you all did too!

First off, my middle son, Ryan spent the night after attending a Sioux hockey game up in Grand Forks. We went out for dinner to celebrate his birthday. His actual b-day was the 17th but he was on a business trip in Atlanta :) We went to our local 'famous' pizza shop and had a nice time!

When he left I headed to the basement and got my hands on some brushes and paints and upcycled a couple of 6 x 6 canvases.

I'm really having a great time painting these little angels, hope you're not getting sick of them just yet!

I finished them, came upstairs and vacuumed all the fur 'love' from Mieko and then hit my Pilates machine. I've had it a year and have used it 3 times, 2 of those times just this past week. Isn't that pathetic? I'm going to try and do it 2-3 times a week MINIMUM! It feels great!

I'd also like to wish my sweet little grandson, Cutler a HAPPY THIRD BIRTHDAY!

Cutler is with his parents over in Mpls celebrating Christmas with his mother's family. Hoping to celebrate sometime this week when they get home!

Have a wonderful evening everyone and I'll see you tomorrow for sure!
