Christmas break so far...

  • We managed to make it to my house just before the snow hit!  
  • I helped my mom cut out flannel for cute baby blankets.
  • I had the most amazing cranberry and spinach salad from Bob Evans. 
  • Mike and I were given a lot of our old baby items.  That deserves its own post.
  • I was delighted to watch a video of Mike during Christmas 1987.  Cutie then...cutie now.  :)
  • We thought about buying a crib mattress from Kmart, but found that a small tornado had torn through the store. (Not literally.)
  • We did manage to find a chest and shelf at IKEA for his room.  
  • I started plotting out Liam's quilt -- hoping to find fabric tomorrow.
  • I made cheesy potato soup for the family.
  • My brother's girlfriend's mom crocheted a beanie for me (and two for Liam). 
  • My dad turned 59. 
  • I turned 30 1/2.   
  • I think I finally became tired of snow.
  • We came home to find our freezer on it's last legs...but then somehow found the will to live.
  • Lola tried to run away three separate times after we got home.
  • Mike and I played this a lot:

And I still have four days left!
