When a weekend comes together......

Phew.  Those Super Bowl lights came back on.  And is it just me and my complete lack of understanding and/or apathy about football that is wondering why every single bathroom, outer office, and night light had to be on to resume play in the stadium?

Anyway......we had a great weekend.  It started with Georgia's school carnival on Friday night.

Parker...he can elicit smiles out of Georgia like no one else.  

Funny story....a few weeks ago I was with Georgia at school for a special assembly on a day that she doesn't normally go to school and we ran into Parker in the hallway.  He had a few other friends surrounding him; all girls.  He gave Georgia a big hug and went on his way.  As he disappeared down the hallway, Georgia stared after him and said quietly, "Who are those other girls?  I didn't know Parker knew other girls."  Ah.....little heart breaks start early.  And Parker's mom (who is one of my best friends) and I had to laugh that Georgia believed she was the only woman in Parker's life.  Those life lessons are never easy are they? 

Moving on......
The carnival was filled with all things a crazy school carnival on a Friday night should be filled with.  Face painting and best friends, jump houses, games that dads win for you, sugar, bad prizes that break when you get home and you can cry over, more sugar, and the surreal realization for Chris and I that our little baby is big enough that we're attending school events with her. We bumped into parents from her class that we don't really know yet who wanted to set up a play-date with Georgia and their children and we watched Georgia run shrieking up to her teachers when she saw them the way kids do when they see their teachers at school events........and I really couldn't think of a better way to spend a Friday night. 

And on Saturday, we woke up to beautiful snow.  The first really pretty snow of the year.  Outside we went...........

Ingenious snow-fort building courtesy of Fiona and Parker's dad.  He probably missed his calling as an igloo architect.

And tonight......we're just home.  And that's a good place to be after a few crazy weeks and more to come.  And because I know you believe Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg would have enhanced the Super Bowl halftime show it is for your viewing pleasure.  And if you've never seen this.....seriously?.......and you're welcome. 


  1. I just love your blog. I actually shared a link on my blog today. Hope that's okay! You just have too many good things to say! Thanks for sharing your beautiful story with the world.

    1. Thanks Whitney! Your story is pretty great too. I looked around quite a bit over at your little space and I'm thinking maybe you should do some guest writing for Mom Colored Glasses!

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one that thought of the SNL skit while watching the half time show!

    Sounds like a fun weekend!
