Marbles and Fruit

Marbles...Here's a quick video of the twins playing with Nana.

Fruit...I received a fruit-puller as a Christmas present this past year end. It's a long stick with a basket on the end. The basket has a little sponge in the cup so as not to damage fruit.

I got this present from Steph because there is a little tree in our area that grows small tangerine-like fruit, many of which are too high to be reached. If they fall off naturally they usually smash when they hit the concrete walkway. The few that land on the vegetation are hard to find in the monkey grass.

Anyway we decided to put it to use today. Here's a couple of pictures ...

After school today Paige and Graham helped Nana and me to gather some fruit.
Here is a video of the event and all the action.

Dinner with Evelyn and Nana

Tonight Steph and the twins went ice skating and then out to dinner. We got Evie. She ate meatballs (4) and pasta and bread. She is all "Patchie, Patchie" or " Wowa"
So of course I indulge her.

She is so scrumptious.
Here are two pics and some video.

Hola Cozumel otra vez

Emily, Jennifer, Beverly. Anna, Colin, Anthony and I are going on a 7 day cruise to Jamaica, Grand Caymans and Mexico. We have our rooms picked out on the Voyager and have our cossies ready to pack. There are about 18 pools on the ship and lots of hot tubs. We plan to swim and soak lots.

The kids are excited about the ice rink, rock wall and arcade..........
We are excited about the martini bar, being waited on hand and foot and no dishes.....

We leave March 15. (9 weeks and 3 days) but who's counting?

Cold Snap in England. Wait for the re download.

(The videos have been reloaded.)

It is cold in England, especially during the winter. It gets dark at 4 pm and doesn't dawn until 0830. So for entertainment for all my lurkers and for those commenters in Weaverham I am loading several videos.......
