Days 71-72: Things Girl did while I was sick

So, I am finally feeling (mostly) better, as are the kids, and we happily spent the last couple of days food shopping, wrapping presents, making and eating food, and playing.  We are having a wonderful time with our visiting family. Because Grandma L is doing so much of the cooking and kitchen cleaning, I got to sit on the couch today while Girl brushed my hair, gave me a face massage with lavender lotion, and then gave me a ‘manicure’ with lotion, too. The full Girl spa treatment.  It was the kind of thing I think a person dreams about when they first learn they will have a daughter. Papa and Poppy spent a lot of time driving to different Lowe’s and Best Buys trying to find a washer and dryer that he and Grandma L wanted to get us for a Christmas present. (Which we are so grateful for! And excited!)

But before it gets lost in the shuffle, I wanted to post a few pictures of things Girl made, some with Papa, some alone, while Boy and I were both so sick.
