Born Christmas Eve Day.
Feeling blessed New Years Eve Day on her one week birthday for all that 2008 has given us and looking forward to 2009!
(I just knew she would come on Christmas)
Two brothers in front spent some time on our road road trip this weekend listening to their Armin. I know, this is not quite legal, but on long rides Justin needs his music and Connor needs his movies. This was our only solution, plus they look pretty cute/silly/techie/goofy/ridiculous up there with those headphones on!
So, Connor and I sat in the back with the laptop propped between us watching movies, and season 1 of the Smurfs - love that cartoon, not so sure he does though. However, once in awhile I do get my way and due to some technical difficulties there weren't many other options. We also had some pretty great conversation. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in the everyday that I forget to have these silly little talks. Eight+ hours in the car gave me a chance to do this! My favorite convo went something like this:
C: I used to be a girl.
M: No honey, you've always been a boy.
M: Well Connor, if you are born a girl you stay a girl and if you are born a boy you stay a boy. (this comment brought some snickers from the front of the car)
M: OK Connor.
C: HAAAAAA, just kidding!
So, green outside and a little sunshine finding its way inside made for some peace in between the craziness that was this weekend.
She liked the similar wool version in my etsy shop, but I told her that wool just wouldn't do for a SPRING vacation.
And of course something in linen for yours truly because it was absolutely necessary that I have another purse.
This one made it through the big bachelorette party last weekend. I too managed to survive.
Now I must finish my laundry and routine Friday cleaning so that when Connor gets home from school we can enjoy the beautiful day - FINALLY a warm sunny day!!
Yep, it was definitely an experiment!
Toby the dog has also started losing his baby teeth. Connor thought he would try to trick the tooth fairy by putting Toby's molar under his pillow. Well, she is not tricked so easily...Connor ended up with a giant bone in his bed the next morning. He's convinced it is a dinosaur bone. The tooth fairy also left a little something for Connor to thank him for the rarity. Both dog and boy were pleased.
