Dollhouse, Nature, & Snow, Oh My.

Zac bought me a dollhouse and I've been trying to put it together. It's a very interesting project. I won't say I hate gluing things, but I definitely don't love it. The bigger house hasn't found a home in our apartment and I don't think it ever will, so I'm giving it back to Aunt Trish.

Zac and I have started a weekly outing where we take our kids and dogs to the park so the kids can ride their bikes and the dogs can get some exercise. We've all been enjoying it very much, even in the cold weather.

It snowed a bit this week! I call it snow, even though it's technically ice. A lot of slippery, crunchy ice.

Date night

The kids are spending the night with my parents, so Zac and I decided to go on a date; something we haven't done for a few years. We are going to see Mockingjay: Part 1 and splurge on snacks.

New Year's 2014

Emily and Alex came to stay with us for New Year's. Marie invited us to her house to shoot fireworks and eat snacky foods. We had a fun time.

My parents came with Abbi to stay with us, so our apartment was full of family. They brought me a dollhouse that once belonged to my younger cousin, Christina. Fun fact: I've wanted a dollhouse my whole life. I asked for one every birthday, Christmas, just-because-day, etc. and never got one. At the lovely age of 30, I receive a hand-me-down dollhouse that needs hardcore re-vamping. Don't get me wrong, I plan to fix it up, but there's a disappointment behind the gesture. Mom even told me, "Be glad you got one now that you're old so you can fix it up. If you had one when you were little you wouldn't have taken care of it."


I'm too old to play with it, but I guess I could adopt a new hobby of tinkering with it. I'll be the grandma with the antique doll house that "should be looked at but never played with".

Speaking of old: I fell off the curb over the weekend. I've got a patch of skin missing on my right knee, which still leaves me limping. Both knees are bruised pretty badly.
