Putting the top of puff pastry on their mini turkey potpies
Saturday we took our annual trip along with my parents and my sister's family to the "domes" to see a model train show in a beautiful garden setting. (Just the shot of "spring" I needed!) The theme was Gulliver's travels this year so there was a large Gulliver and the trains rode around the village of Lilliput. That is always a fun time. Right now I would like to be back in the tropical dome -- despite the fact that the humidity was so high that my hair lost all curl.
You can see Gulliver's feet in this picture and one of the trains at the bottom. I don't have a good picture to show the immensity of the display.
Sunday we hosted dinner for the college students that come down to help out in various areas at church. The children absolutely love to have them come over and enjoy the time playing games and just goofing around after dinner. Later in the day brought Grandma and Grandpa for a visit. They came to keep me company for a couple days while John went on a business trip (to a place it was warm). The children enjoyed it and it was a nice help for me.
Yesterday we took in a bit of sledding before heading to art class. The hills were icy which made it all the more fun.
You can see one patch of ice just below where the chain of children is. They were sledding into what we call a "bowl" as it is a large bowl shape in the ground. On another note -- It is where my high school graduation ceremony was.
Time for a break from activities. Although, keeping busy has helped to break up the seemingly endless days indoors.
