Over the Weekend

It was a pretty busy weekend. After getting caught up on the week's laundry, I spent Friday night wrapping Christmas presents while Tom worked on some music he was converting to "tab" (you'll have to ask him what exactly that means). I'm only halfway done with wrapping... ugh. Every year I say I'm going to do more gift cards... why haven't I done this yet?

On Saturday morning I got ready for our weekend visitors - Mandy, Austin & Bailey would be coming to stay and Josh & Jess would be coming for the day for our "Game Night". We get together every 2-3 months to have a themed dinner and play games. We made homemade pizzas (including dessert pizzas) and played Yahtzee! (a first for game night), Dirty Minds (actually a really boring game) and some card games like Scat! and Pass the Trash. We also ventured into the hot tub but I pushed a wrong button earlier in the day that turned the heat off so the temperature had dropped a little too low to be comfortable. Oh well... maybe next time.

On Sunday we went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. Our 1 star waitress was terrible but the food was good. And then we ventured to Towson for more Christmas shopping. The boys took Bailey - I'm sure they looked like the perfect little couple strolling a baby through the mall - and Mandy and I did some shopping but then treated ourselves to mani's and pedi's. A great idea after walking for so many hours.

The rest of the evening was spent relaxing (that is, after a half hour of trying to find where Bailey hid Austin's keys) and playing more Yahtzee! It was a really fun weekend. The only problem is that now I have this song stuck in my head and I keep singing it while Tom looks at me like I'm crazy...

"I am going on a trip... in my favorite rocket ship...
Flying through the air... Little Einsteins!"
