Then, compare it to a known Keeli belly button, obviously a pear-shaped innie. Note the visible similarities.
Then, comes the touch test. (Oh, how Aunt Glenna would cringe at this photo!) Maybe this "tickles" the margarine.

I took a little trip last week to pick up some wine for a work-related event. The day started with a clear blue sky and lots of sunshine. Then I found myself driving into a huge snowstorm!
Wedge Mountain Winery, owned by my friends Charlie and Mary Ann McKee is located near a tiny, rural community in the middle of an apple orchard. We visited until the snow stopped falling and the sunshine returned.

No school for Rick and the kids today - it was a snow day. We'll give it another try tomorrow morning.

These were taken on a recent drive through the wilds of Idaho, off the paved roadways. Based on the tracks we saw near the creek, at least two moose were nearby. The scenery along the drive was beautiful. We miss the trees, hills, wildlife and snow at our current location.

The kids learned to two-step.
Keeli turned into her friend Chris' lucky charm as they won a game of musical chairs.
Rikard gave his best shot at the donut on a string contest.
All the kids got into karaoke. Keeli was in a group who sang twinkle, twinkle little star about a dozen times. Tatum and Rikard belted out Ghostbusters.
Our holiday weekend ended with a trip to Costco. WOW! Prices are shooting through the roof. The regular quarterly shopping list to stock up on basics for quick meals, lunches and cleaning supplies is about $100 more than usual. At least we know it takes the truck to get it all home and not my little car.
