Alexa's Mama is in Hawaii - day one

Alexa's first taste of collard greens - yummy!

Mimi - please don't tickle me any more....and yes, that's my quilt I'm on!!

Music anyone?

Alexa "riding" the 8 pack of paper towels...how creative :)

This New Years Day started with rising early to get Autumn (aka Alexa's Mama) to the airport and a last moment of yum-yums (nursing) before we headed out at 4:36. Alexa did well, in fact better than Autumn and Mimi who both had tears in their eyes when it was time for Autumn to go through the check in process. Then Mimi and Alexa headed back down the mountain to a sleeping Pop. Alexa had breakfast on her mind so Mimi and Alexa hit the kitchen for some oatmeal and then play time ensued until Pop woke up. Mimi and Alexa called to wish Walker (Walk-Walk as Alexa calls the cousin she loves so much) a Happy New Year! Then it was nap time for the little one, even though she had taken a quick nap on the way down the mountain and Mimi got to spend some time working on quilt squares on her new Bernina sewing maching!! A little later Mimi and Pop got lunch ready and Grandpa and Grace came and joined us for black-eyed peas and ham, collard greens and spinach corn bread followed by a delicious pineapple pudding cake Grace made for us. Alexa had her first taste of collard greens and seemed to enjoy them much more than the peas, so Mama it looks like she covered you for the whole peas for pennies and collard greens for dollars in the coming year!! :)
After lunch Alexa began getting sleepy again (so did Mimi) so Alexa went down for her second nap and Mimi got a nap too! After a pretty long nap for both tired girls Alexa woke up and had a bath and it's been playtime ever since with a short break for supper. We've had a good first day of 2008 and we hope Mama has a good time in Hawaii and is pleasantly surprised by the pictures (above) showing some of the highlights of Alexa's day!
Happy New Year to everyone - we wish everyone good health and good fortune in the coming months. Let's all try to make a positive contribution to the world we live in!
