Meg, who has become fascinated with Veteran’s Day this year, declared yesterday that this was the “Best Veteran’s Day EVER!” It probably had a little something to do with the fact that we went to the car wash and then grabbed ice cream cones at a drive-thru on the way home, but let’s give her the benefit of the doubt on that one.
A few scenes from our weekend… What did you do?
A haircut for Everett. We chopped of his long, curly, often sweaty, locks this weekend to battle cradle cap. I was sad that they have to go, but I’ll admit that his new, shorter hair looks pretty handsome.
The girls of the family threw a baby shower for our niece (and cousin, for the girls…), who is expecting a little girl herself. After a lot of sugar, a lot of “ooh-ing” and “ahh-ing” over tiny pink socks and, of course, some fun, these two girls were beat. And, I’ll admit, so was I.
Other things we did this weekend that happened to go picture-free… Fell asleep on the couch and snored through at least one episode of Covert Affairs, made an early morning Target run, had lunch with Janie and Meg (where they were both wearing almost all white and didn’t get a drop of ketchup on themselves! small miracle!), snuck out for a drink and dinner with Josh after the kids were asleep, cleaned both cars, drinks with friends, a cousin “sleepover” and a long fall scooter through some of our favorite trails.
Now, to squeeze five days into four before a weekend in Seattle (eek!) is here!
