Dad's In Maine

Our dad is in Maine! He and mom have been building a cupola since July and this weekend it

was loaded on our friend's trailer and hauled up to Maine!













This is the cupola as the crane is lowering it onto the house roof~


















And this is the cupola in place in all its glory with a pretty rooster weathervane!

















Dad is away until Sunday, which means that mom eats crazy stuff for dinner! Who wants to cook when you don't have to!

The plan tonight is to watch one of my very favorite movies in the whole wide world and to have popcorn! The movie is "Because of Winn Dixie"!












Mitch has never seen this movie before so it should be even more fun watching him enjoy it!














The weather here is dreary and rainy so it's the perfect night to relax and enjoy!
Light the candle mom and let's get started! I'm ready!


So until next time................


Love ya lots,


Maggie

Yummy popcorn. That must be a thing muzzers do when dads are not home, cause we have popcorn supper lots. It seems to be popcorn or Vietnamese!

And yes, that is an outstanding cupola and looks super in the new site!

Hi Maggie & Mitch,

The cupola is boootiful! Your parents should be so proud of their work. I hope you had a great movie night. I love 'Because of Winn Dixie', I'd like to learn to smile like she does. Enjoy your popcorn!!

The cupola is so beautiful! Your dad is very talented! Let us know if Winn Dixie is a good movie - I've never seen it either.

Your friend, Lenny

The scenery of the cupola suits the house very much.
Can the window of the cupola be opened from among the house?
And, it is a lovely vane chicken.

Please spend the weekend in popcorn and the movie.

Hey Maggie and Mitch,
That Cupola is really neat! Have fun spending the weekend with Mom watching movies..Unfortantly, I don't have the patience to just relax yet..Im always on the go! I know it drives my mommy crazy when she just wants to relax!

Love Toby

Sparky said...

WOW! Your pop is super talented!

My mama does cook for herself either - when she is alone, she makes Cherrios and lets us have a couple.

That cupola is very cool. Your mom does what our mom does for dinner. Popcorn is good dinner, right?! Especially with a good movie. We wish that we could come over and watch it with you.
Woofers.

Rudy said...

Your Dad does great cupola work! My Mom would love one on the garage so she could stick our Bedlington weather vane on top of it but she says don't hold your breath for Dennis to do it. OH well we'll just have to stick it in the garden and look at it.
I don't eat popcorn but I love to snuggle up!

Bogart said...

The cupola is AMAZING, I can't believe your dad made that!!!

Oh and my mom says that the popcorn dinner is EXACTLY THE RIGHT THING TO DO when dad's are away... :)

Love,
Bogart
