Anna's Breakfast

Anna's favorite breakfast.  Homemade Oatmeal with banana, raspberries and blueberries!  Healthy and keeps her full all morning!
The best part?  She makes it herself!!

Mmmm...frozen custard!

 Andrew's fiance came over for the day on Saturday, and Anna loved doing her hair!  This is a "waterfall braid."

Anna's team had a tournament basketball game Sunday afternoon, and they won!  We celebrated with some frozen custard!!  Good Job, Coach!!

I wanted to send a special virtual hug to our friends, the Dykstras who loved their dog enough to know that it was time to let her go.  She brought so much love to her family, and I will miss her too!  Rest in Peace, sweet Marlee Sue!

A little surprise!

 Bella and I worked at the nursing home this week, and in the main area where we visit residents they have a simple kitchen.  Nothing looks strange or out of the ordinary....

Until you zoom in on the microwave!!!  Lola the cat had perched herself on top!  The real kicker was that Bella didn't even see her the whole time we were there!!!
