Friday night, Hubby and I slept in the apartment above my parents garage and didn't have to wake up with the kids. Is that the best anniversary present or what? Of course, I woke up at 7:30 and missed my kids so I headed downstairs. Figures. So Hubby slept in and I enjoyed watching "The Office" on DVR, sipping coffee with Kahlua and having Mikey and Gran-T play with the kids and take care of their VERY needy morning habits.
On Saturday, my oldest and dearest friend, Jill, her husband (who is now one of Hubby's closest friends) and Bailey, my godson, came in to hang out and stay the night.
My brother and his girlfriend set up a scavenger hunt for Bram, map and all. Bailey and Bram had a ball searching for trinkets all over the 10 acres. It was a hoot watching them take it so seriously. Bram would hold the map and really check it out like he could read. He is wicked smart, but can't read yet. Shhhhhh, don't tell him.
We had a lot of Mexican martinis, a lot of wine, and a lot of food. SO FUN!! Bram was so sleepy and worn out on the way home, he fell asleep before we even pulled out of the driveway.
Also, this weekend something very big happened. NO MORE PACI!! It started on Thursday night. We told him he was a big boy and no paci.
And that was that.
He has asked for it a few times and I have caught him taking a "hit" off of Tess' from time to time. But at night time, no paci. Not a problem at all. So can we get a, "HALLELUJEAH!"
Yesterday, I watched a friends 8 month old. This is Charlie. Tess felt very grown up and really was a huge help. Yep.
See all the antique frames? My Uncle Randy makes them for me. My Daddy Rob (grandfather), had a house on one of his properties. The house was built in 1860 and was in bad shape. So, my Uncle Randy used tons of the old beaded board and crown molding when building he and my Aunt's new home. With all of the leftover wood, he started making these beautiful frames. I love them and I am about to put in another order for a white one.
And the bullet I dodged? I took Bram to get his 2009 pair of Crocs. He wanted the Scooby Doo Crocs. They were terrible. Crocs are ugly enough as it is but you should of seen these puppies (no pun intended) they were bad.
Fortunately for me, a bag of jelly bellies was able to persuade him to get the neon green pair. Because neon green Crocs are WAY better looking than the Scooby Doo Crocs.
