anyway, I particularly liked Anita's tip. she suggested hanging a cowbell around his neck to one, slow him down a little (perhaps from the weight of the bell), and most importantly two, the ringing would alert anyone within a five mile radius as to where he is at any given moment. hmmm. she might just be on to something there. so, if you hear cowbells in your neck of the woods, please, don't be alarmed. it's just Rowan being dingy. (pun intended.)
back to the weekend. after several weekends in a row spent playing, it was time to catch up around here.
I'm talking haircuts and flu shots on saturday. followed by some painting, errand running, shopping, and Christmas decorating-- shuuuut uuuup! Christmas? but Thanksgiving isn't even over, you turkey! yeah, well, in all truthfulness, I've always waited until after Thanksgiving to put the tree up. but. since we're heading to Colorado for the weekend, I thought I'd get a little jump start on it. you know, so I wouldn't have kids begging to decorate the second we arrived home, while trying to unpack and do sixteen loads of laundry.
it was high excitement around here, let me tell you.
and then on sunday it started to snow.
a rip roaring snowball fight ensued with the neighbor kids. afterwards, the girls made mint chocolate chip cookies and homemade hot cocoa. followed up by Gary's homemade pizza for dinner.
|it's a family affair.|
it was a very productive and fun weekend!
