Addy, In Pictures

Our Colorado trip went by much, much too fast. We crammed in a lot of activities, but the best part, by far, was just hanging out with Addison and her folks.
We went to the movies to see Frozen (it's excellent) and Addy was the envy of all the little girls in her Princess Elsa dress.

Addy and I made a Christmas tree using ornaments, styrofoam and glue. We got so giggly at one point, trying to take the tops off ornaments and having them shoot all over the room, that Addy (almost) wet her pants. Good times!
We took a break between antique shops and indulged in Addy's favorite treat - a Dairy Queen mint Oreo Blizzard. In 30 degree weather. Brrrrrrrr.
We put together puzzles - princess ones, of course. And read books. Lots and lots of books.
And best of all, we turned Addy into a dedicated antique/collectible shopper. Each day that we went antiquing, Addy had a set amount to spend (usually $10). She came home with some great treasures - Winston the bear, Fluffy McFlufferson (rabbit), Turkey Lurkey, and a couple of pegasus. Plus she learned a bit about handling money. (Shhhhh, don't tell her it was educational!)

Hubby and I found a few treasures too. An original Weave-It, complete with original needle and instructions;
and a set of vintage Boye interchangeable crochet hooks, with a beautiful amber-colored handle. The outside of the box is damaged and the set is missing 2 hooks, but I love it.
We flew out Friday night, getting to the house just before 1 a.m. Saturday morning. It was a wonderful trip, and we really miss Addy, but it also feels great to be home.
