Cecilia usually comes to work with me on Fridays and today I had to make 12 loaves of pumpkin cranberry bread for an event this weekend at the winery. It was a whirlwind day, looking at all these pictures, but not a day unlike most lately. It started out with Cecilia very excited to help make the bread.
That excitement quickly subsided and she wanted to watch a show. Then we colored, she played with little Ariel and Eric paper dolls and we listened to, sang and danced to The Little Mermaid soundtrack. Notice the Ariel sitting in the chair.
We had to go back to the grocery store before lunch, then when we got home, she climbed onto the back of the car and we had a photo shoot.
She ate barely any lunch, but took a good nap. I continued to bake more bread, and clean out the corner cabinet. After she woke up, we put the last batch of bread into the oven, and took a walk. She rose her scooter. We walked to the post office, to a jewelry store, and back home in time to take the bread out of th oven. When John got home with Charlotte and Dominic, I had dinner ready in the crock pot, and chocolately chocolate brownies going into the oven for dessert. We ate, then had a nice evening, just hanging out. And when I say nice, I mean Charlotte was in time out twice, Dominic bonked his head on whatever he could pull up on, and Cecilia teased Charlotte with whatever toy was the special toy of the moment that they could fight over.
After Dominic went to sleep, we played Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders.
I'm exhausted, how can it only be 9 p.m.? Plus, I have to work all weekend, oh what fun.
