Hope your weekend is off to a good start already. Jeff had a guys' night last night, so Sam and I had a little date. We had planned to go downtown to see the Christmas lights show, but it started raining right when we got there.... Instead though, we drove around looking at lights, and Sam LOVED it. He was so cute "hunting" for lights and got so excited when he spotted them. I could have driven around all night just listening to his gasps and wonder. Christmas with a toddler is the closest I've ever come to believing in magic. :)
Towards the end of the night, the rain had stopped, so we parked and walked down a street that is totally covered in lights. Of course, it started pouring rain just when we got about three blocks away, so we ended the night soaking wet - but happy. Thankfully, it is freakishly warm here right now (high 60s last night), so I think we were probably spared from pneumonia.
This morning, we are having our pictures taken for Christmas cards (#betterlatethannever) and then enjoying the rest of a relaxing weekend and - no doubt - tracking the big icestorm that is apparently headed our way.
Anyway, here are some good reads for your Saturday morning:
Learning to Speak the Language of Boys
How (and Why) to Be the Meanest Mom in the World
I've Been Thinking about This (on what's real about blogging)
The Heart of Holiday Hospitality
What were your favorites from the week?
Have a great weekend! I'll be doing a lot of this....
