So I proudly proclaimed my intentions of participating in this year's NaBloPoMo extravaganza...and then Nana and Bobby J came to town. We had such a fantastic weekend, and I think I saw my computer for about 5 minutes a day- my daughter and her Nana found the most TERRIFIC preschool games to play. Although, it was rather jaw-dropping to hear my "I won't eat, smile, laugh, dance, sleep, or potty on command" daughter SAYING THE WORDS WHEN THE COMPUTER TOLD HER TO. What does this gray box have that I don't, eh? Now that the weekend is over, she's probably added 15 words to her vocabulary. She says home rather than reejoy, for goodness' sake!
Ernie had so much fun with her grandparents- one morning she climbed in Nana's bed, snuggled up to her face and said "I you too!" (she doesn't say the love part, but I know she means it) and then sat up on her knees and matter of factly stated "I nice." Yes sweetie, you're very nice.
They've gone home now, and we miss them! But, we're counting the weeks until Christmas. My whole family (the ones that still live in the family house anyways) are headed east to see Aunt LoLo and her Christmas baby, so my parents used up a vast amount of airline miles to fly us to Nana and Bobby J's windy domain. And I escape the post office at Christmas time once again. Hooray! (Before you ask why we're not headed east, picture Ernie, BBJ, Mimi, and little lolo boy all in the same drafty, cavernous, ECHOING lake house. For two weeks. Yep, we're definitely not invited :)
Oh, and here's a gratuitous picture of my little family at church.
