So far behind

We've all been sick. It's dragged on, and on and on, and from person to person. Little Miss is now sick and Mr. Man is sick, again. Besides being sick, there have been a few other things happening at the house on the corner. Between feeling yucky myself and caring for the others, I'm just getting around to posting a few things that happened in the last two weeks.

Little Miss went to a Princess Ball, a father-daughter event held by our church. It was a fundraiser for local and overseas charities. She wasn't sure she wanted to go. She doesn't like the whole princess thing, but after we told her that it was basically a fancy social action meeting, and she learned that her friend would be there, she agreed to go with Andrew. She had a great time.

Everday for lunch, since the beginning of the year, Mr. Man drinks one of these.

One day, instead of milk, there was one of these inside.
It said "Yee-haw! Yee-haw!" when Mr. Man opened the carton. He was so excited to have finally won something from the milk contest that has been around for a few years.

After waiting for an eternity, or two weeks in Mr. Man-time, his prize arrived in the mail.

Happy, happy, happy boy!

A perfect prize for the boy that loves robots, birds and Wii. He wears his orange robot shirt every chance he gets. Have you ever noticed that he is usually wearing the same shirt in most of the blog posts? He carries a fan-dex of birds to and from school. He loves birds. Right now his favourite is the Rock Dove. And Wii. What can I say. Mr. Man loves it.

My magnolia tree in the side yard was in bloom last week. This week, the petals are on the ground or have since been raked up. Such a pretty tree, too bad the blooms don't last.

Our mailman was walking by when I was trying to snap a close-up of the flowers. I was standing on my tip-toes holding the camera above my head. "Did you get a good shot?" he asked as he walked by. Everyone is so friendly around here. I love it.
