My dad was gone cleaning grain for most of the day, so that gave us all plenty of time to get the house cleaned up and tasty food made and presents prepared!
- For the big job of getting the house cleaned up after all the mud that had been drug in this week, it was mostly just mother and I, as the boys went over to the land we rent to get a load of hay. They had to move the tractor from one field to another, so it took them quite a while...
- For supper, we had chicken enchiladas; mulled apple juice; Ritz cracker cookies; and angel food cake with whipped cream and strawberries. Yummy!
- For presents, we had one big gift (the one I mentioned before), which was a new medicine cabinet for the bathroom! Our old ones' glass had cracked when a member of our family had left the curlers plugged in too long on the shelf of the medicine cabinet--the shelf being right in front of the mirror....
The old mirror: (It was off the wall already by the time I took this picture.)
Andrew took the time today to get the old cabinet down and the new one up in its place--wired and everything!
Mother helped get the new cabinet up in the right place:
We found that the double mirrored doors make for some really neat (and funny) reflections...
We made my dad a birthday card with the following pictures of Mother,
My camera and I (and Andrew a little bit),
That was just some of the fun we've had with the mirrors already. Just in case you ever try such a thing as this, I thought I'd warn you that it can actually make you dizzy if you are looking into one side of the mirror and someone else starts moving it back and forth really fast... :)
