Big Girl Weekend

This was a big weekend for our Addy May. Her daddy converted her crib to a toddler bed on Saturday. She was climbing out of her crib which made the crib unsafe for her. Now what will she do with all this freedom?

Here’s what she did until she finally fell asleep for her nap. That’s a lot of books to read! It will be fun for us to hear the stories of her getting used to this new nap and bedtime system. Her parents probably won’t be as entertained.

While the toddler bed was being constructed Dear and I were in Spokane to  do some shopping. It was a spur of the moment decision on Saturday morning to drive down. We hit Trader Joe’s, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, Lowes, Home Depot, Total Wine and Costco. Costco was the busiest we’ve ever seen since we’ve lived here.

On our way back home it was a visual treat to drive down into Chewelah.

It was a beautiful day for the drive and shopping. Since we were driving right by our favorite Mexican restaurant at our normal linner time we stopped for a meal.

The special on Saturdays is Chile Colorado and that’s what we decided to enjoy.

Today, Sunday, we were happy to be in Sunday School and then the main service where we continue in the book of Hebrews. Wonderful words in the songs we sang and a sermon that was full of the Truth. Came home and I worked on a meal. A strange but good combination of Pizza and Split Pea Soup. I didn’t realize that it was National Pizza Day.

We bought the dough, pizza sauce, and pepperoni at Trader Joe’s. We added bell peppers, jalapeno, onions and mozzarella cheese. This was one of the best results we’ve had with the dough being baked well and without a soggy bottom!

Dear is moving along with the new doorway in the laundry room. The walls are ready for a few more brushes of dry wall mud, some sanding, and lastly paint. The refrigerator is moved to it’s new home and I’m getting excited. The floor only needs one transition piece in the doorway.

We are happy with each step we take to make this bungalow our own. Happy new week to you.

  1. So fun to see the toddler stage in full swing! So great that she can entertain herself with “reading” .. not all kids can!
    I love the sound of your trip into town and where your return brought you just in time for dinner!

  2. Awww . . . isn’t Addy adorable in her new big girl bed! It sounds like an all around good weekend, filled with the simple pleasures of life . . . and the Words of Life!! I’m sure it’s exciting to see this current project nearing completion!

  3. Hello, Congrats to Addy, she is a big girl now. Cute photo of Addy and her big girl bed. The dinner and pizza looks delicious. Love the gorgeous view! Enjoy your day, wishing you a great new week!

  4. A girl who reads…after my own heart! I took pizza to Mom and Daddy’s for lunch yesterday; didn’t realize it was meant to be…haha. Ellen, I’ve been MIA…focused on the horribleness going on in Virginia…stripping away protection for the unborn, taking away electoral college, stomping on 2nd Amendment AND, as of July 1, it’ll be illegal to talk ill about the elected “representatives”…who only represent themselves and bloomberg. God have mercy and help us!

  5. Ellen – moving into a big girl/big boy bed is right up there with giving up a pacifier/thumb! Entertaining for the grandparents, who look on with knowing smiles and a bit of revenge, while the parents resign themselves to less sleep! Back in December, a neighbor and I made the trip to Spokane and back in a day – just for shopping (mainly Trader Joe’s). I think next time we will at least stay the night! Enjoy the rest of your week!
