I wasn't going to accompany them. They had things to return and exchange, and Sonja had to pick out perfume...Evelyn bought her a sampler from Sephora for Christmas...you smell them all and decide which one to get a full sized bottle of, too much fun! She chose Juliet Has a Gun. Don't ask me, but it DOES smell really good.
I only bought a few things: sleeper jammies for Anya, two outfits for Ruth, two shirts for Wulf, and some little boys' socks. I also bought two shirts for Char, one for Sonja (and some sunnies), and some coffee. I only wore a mask in the coffee shop, because it was required, and I wanted a coffee. Yes, I am one of those people.
Emily, Benjamin, Margaret, and I made chicken wings for the youth kids' gathering last evening. Honey chipotle, hot Buffalo, barbecued, and some really good dry rub wings. We deep fried forty pounds of wings, along with fries, and I made some brownies (I melted milk chocolate on the top, then added sprinkles, they looked good). After I helped prepare the food, I ate some wings with them (yes, good!), then went home...it was just Paul and I here, so quiet!
It won't be too quiet for too long, because Sam and Grace and Grant and Ruth are coming tonight!!!!! I have some vacuuming and cleaning to do, and I am so excited. Not about the cleaning ha...about seeing my boy, and Grace, and the little ones! :)
