Long weekend highlights
I really should learn from my past and stop planning my long weekend time as an opportunity to get ahead on my homework. It never happens. I still have several large research papers looming over my head. But, it was a fun weekend over all and quite a lot of good things happened:
As you can see, Master Fob proved his manliness by picking out a lovely Christmas tree and putting it up in our living room. This is the first year we've bought a real tree and I totally love the smell. S-Boogie is also beside herself with joy at having her very own tree with lights.
We had a delicious dinner with Master Fob's family at his brother's house. And we've been enjoying the leftovers for the last few days as well.
I was surprised by a little package from my mother-in-law this morning with a yoga for pregnancy DVD that I had put on my Amazon wish list.
My parents were in town and they treated us to Thai food on Friday night. They also gave us a nice anniversary gift in the form of paper. Master Fob and I just used it to book reservations at a nice hotel in Salt Lake for next Saturday night. My parents are awesome.
S-Boogie got sick, but has managed to avoid wheezing or any trouble with her breathing, so the investment in asthma medication is obviously paying off.
Also, S-Boogie got a beautiful new coat with kitty cat pockets, pictures of which can be seen here
And, the snow was lovely. I like snow because it covers the brown ugliness of the barren trees, clears away the inversion, and justifies the freakin' cold weather.
