There is something so sweet about having a husband who gets all the government holidays off.
Having him home to hang out with makes up for the fact that I don't get any mail on days like today.
I like my mail. But not as much as my male.
Oh, you don't know how clever I think I am over that last sentance!
Anyway, before I share some pictures with of Presidents Day with The Mister, I wanted to share just a bit about The Girl's birthday party.
Sometime before Thanksgiving, The Girl said that she wanted a Parisian themed party. She is very enamored with Paris and speaking French. I think she thinks it's all very fancy.
So we asked 6 little girls to come dressed in fancy dress and ready to eat "french" food.
We had crossaints with ham and cheese (Croque-Monsieur), strawberry kiwi salad (salade fraises kiwi), potato chips, and fresh squeezed lemonade (citron presse).
For dessert we had Petite Fours and ice cream (glace).
I think it was a success....and now I can go to France and order something to eat.
OK, back to celebrating Presidents in the desert...The Mister and I went on a hike and had a picnic and the weather was beautiful. I took a few pictures:
This is me at the top of the hike. We actually could have hiked higher but we had hiked steadily for 45 minutes and I couldn't stop thinking of (or talking about ) the lunch we were going to eat. I had worked up a powerful hunger. So we snapped a picture and made our descent. Can you see the snow on the tippy top of the mountain behind me?
When we hiked past these cacti I couldn't help but think of Ecclesiastes 4:12:
two can defend themselves.
A "cactus" of three strands is not quickly broken.
