Thankfully, I have mediocre iPhone pics to share with you.
last weekend, we left the mountain to attend a very special birthday party for my niece. She just turned one!
In the "burbs" people get these bouncy castle things for birthday parties. It's like, the thing to do. We don't have stuff like that up on the mountain so my kids bounced their hearts out.
The birthday girl enjoyed her first taste of cake and frosting!
Look at that green grass! That's why people move to Phoenix in the winter.
While we were in town, we shopped for Thanksgiving food, and made the menu. I'll be cooking for a crowd this year so my Dad and I stocked up on everything we'll need for the big day.
In other news, my friend polished my nails with gel polish that hardens under a special light. This stuff is supposed to last several weeks. I had her do my nails for the Thanksgiving holiday, and I'm very impressed by their longevity. Normally, a manicure lasts less than a day around here, but this stuff is tough! No more John Wayne hands for Thanksgiving. Only pretty lady fingers for me!
I've been thumbing through this fancy catalog that arrived in the mail this week. My husband broke an expensive plate this year while we were having dinner at a friend's house, and I bought a new one from this store to replace it. I guess that's why they sent us their catalog. It makes me feel highfalutin when I read it, as if I have a summer home in the Hamptons or something. Quick, someone get me a K-Mart ad before I forget my roots. HaHa!
Below is a picture I snapped at Wally World. It's that time of year when every store in town has these ugly re-bar flagged things out. I bet half of you reading will know what they're for, and the other half won't have a clue.
Yes, just around the corner, we'll be having "big" snows, and these ugly markers are out so the plow doesn't hit the planters and curbs in the parking lots.
Lastly, I'll leave you with a picture of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen for Thanksgiving. Does your Walmart carry these things? They would definitely be an ice-breaker sitting on the Thanksgiving table.
Well, that's all of the photo documentation that I have. I'm off to do some chores, and teach some kids!
