I realize I've been pretty absent lately, and I no I didn't forget I had this blog. Somehow, this month just got away from me. One minute, we had just finished Halloween, and the next we were coming into the home stretch of November!
The kids and I have been keeping pretty busy, in part because we joined a new mom's club. We've gone on a few playdates and activities, including a trip to the fire department. Z had so much fun!
I've also been working like a madwoman on A's upcoming birthday party. Last weekend was consumed with making the invitations. In fact, I pretty much abandoned my family on Sunday evening to work on them. I took over making dinner, so Colin could run to the store. The kids had been playing together in the family room, but I thought it seemed a little too quiet (you know what I mean, Mom's). When I looked over, I saw this...
Apparently Daddy left a box of Cheerios on the floor, a little too close to Miss A, who LOVES her food. She was in heaven, and while it was kind of funny (and pretty darn cute) it just meant I had to get out the vacuum for the second time that day.
We also bought a new dining room table, in anticipation of Thanksgiving (plus A's birthday and Christmas and, well, many other occasions!). It is much bigger than our old table, and can seat up to 14! So, everyone over to my house for a party. ;0)
Then, this big guy arrived.
Yup, that's 'Wow, Wow Wubzy.' Because what else would you watch after buying a brand new 50" plasma HDTV??
We had been shopping for a new TV for months, and decided to wait for the Black Friday sales. Well, it was a wise decision and our waiting paid off because we got this for about $500 off the regular price! Of course, this meant an unexpected evening of putting it up and getting everything programmed. And, of course, the boys had to break it in by playing video games right away.
And, yes, we did just celebrate Thanksgiving, so I will update soon about that!
Oh, and for those of you that read this regularly, you'll notice I have added a new 'About Me' just to the right. I plan on making some more changes soon, so keep checkin' back!
