We began the new year with a very exciting event. We closed on our land in Spring Branch that is soon to be the NEW Anderson Homestead. It's just a hair over an acre & backs up to a beautiful, spring fed creek.
Any time we are down there, we always take a jaunt to Galveston Beach, if nothing else, just to go to Murdoch's, drink a margarita & watch the waves crash along the shore.
Pulling out of the driveway was hard for me this time. It was hard for me to come to grips with the fact that everything my Dad (& Mom) was & worked so hard for, was loaded up & strapped into a U-Haul truck. It seemed very final.
On January 30th we met Grandy at the Botanical Gardens, in honor of Rick/PopPop on the first anniversary of his passing. It was a beautiful morning & I'm certain Rick was watching & smiling down.
The rest of January was pretty uneventful (if you don't count the number of times we were all sick w/ coughs, colds or allergies). We went to "school"; lots of coloring' play dates with friends & just hanging out.
At the beginning of February, we went to a birthday party of a very special, little girl. A girl by the name of Delilah M., AKA "the other Delilah", celebrated her 5th birthday. The kids joined their classmates at a wonderful party with the theme of Frozen. There was even a visit from a special "someone".
Since Rich worked a 1/2 day on the Sunday of Super Bowl, the kids & I hung out & played while the game was on in the background. Instead of chips & beer... we dined on chocolate chip cookies & popcorn!
Something VERY special & exciting happened to Delilah in February! She lost her very first tooth!!! At 5 1/2 years old!!! She was a real trooper & didn't cry at all. And, I'm sure I'm a little biased... but, she's still beautiful, even with a snaggle-toothed smile!
Well, I'm doing a little bit better at the blog posts this year... It's only March & I've already gotten around to posting about January & February. Much better than last year when I waited until June!
Well, until next time... which will hopefully be next month... Jett & Delilah say:
