Such a busy weekend.
We had a great, busy, fun, exciting, exhausting weekend. I finally wrote about our Friday in the city. (AK had no school and Jeff only had two patients to see) We went bowling in Chinatown, the Smithsonian Portrait gallery, Iwo Jima memorial and to Ft. Myer. You can read about all our adventures here.
I am loving having my new camera and was thrilled to see two ads for it in Family Fun magazine which helped me confirm my decision. I was so stressed.. Nikon/Cannon. It is a fun place to learn about photography with some many things to take photos of.
Since we did our D.C. thing on Friday, Saturday truly became a special day! (listen to song here) We got a lot of cleaning done, cleaned the car inside and out, organized closets. I made Mindy's granola, Las Cruces Halloween burritos and Pumpkin muffins.I Finally finished my ribbon holder. A month or so ago I found this white shelf outside a store with the word "Free" on it. Can you imagine what this does to me? We were walking with our strollers so could not take the huge shelf. We took the pieces that we could and made Annie Kate hold them and then Jeff went back for it later.
I drilled holes along the side and bought some wooden dowels to hold the ribbon. I can't decide if I am happy I now have them organized or sad that Jeff can see my ribbon sickness.
Sunday was a great day. It felt good to have the house so clean.Jeff taught the lesson, which is always great because it causes great discussions for us. We had a roast cooking in the oven during church (always a good thing) Carrot souffle, spaghetti squash and riced potatoes.
Jeff went hometeaching to his family that just had twins. Henry and Isabelle. They are so cute. I monogrammed these blankets for them.
While my machine was running I did this blanket for one of Jeff's attending from Vanderbilt. A little different for me using a picture on a monogram, but I loved this bird and wanted to figure out how to use it. Also the letter Z, L and T were hard to put together, so I opted for the two letters on the left. *** bird is from Bunnycup kids mini designs.
We took a Halloween walk around our neighborhood with light sticks on Sunday night. This neighborhood really goes all out for Halloween. Caroline got made on the way home and lit up the neighborhood with her best scream for the whole way home! Man that girl has got some lungs.
I have high hopes for a great week. I am getting so excited for the holiday!
