jammin' through...

ok. who took our weekend? even em, this morning, asked me, "how can it be monday already mama?" and we had taken an extra day.

it was full. (that is likely part of it.) but full in the beautiful spend-time-with-really-great-people kind of full. and i did get a couple of things done.

thursday night we met up with d's mom, sister and husband and three of their girls + a fiancee for a little sushi. i have one niece off to portland to explore new pastures with aforementioned fiancee, and one heading to israel for a year, to explore her passion. this was likely the last night we would see these two for a while. (the third is off to high school this year - and i know we will be seeing more of her. my girls will make sure of that!) we will miss them greatly.

friday we all slept in, swam, ate, swam, then headed over to our neighbors' for dinner. they have a little almost 1 year old who is fascinated by ours. and they put on a kick-ass bbq. good company and good food. yum.

saturday. a little thrift with a very good friend and one of her boys. back in the pool. and a quiet evening just us. well maybe not quiet. (we had quite a family jam, complete with shoebox guitar and pasta shakers.) but definitely just us.

jamming

sunday. breakfast out with friends and news of a new baby on the way. always good news! another niece. another birthday party. 4 year olds cosmic bowling. the big bug loved it. the little bug not so sure. i will reserve my comment. no naps. much crankiness. but the big bug did take some quiet time and was even inspired to organize her books. the little bug, not so quiet. back in the pool. then early to bed for all. (well, except me - i revelled in the dark, quiet house and got a little crafting and organizing of my own done. i'll save that for later.)

oh and my superbuzzy order arrived! mariko and kelly - i cannot tell you how impressed i am with it all! thank you! great quality. great selection. great service. feeling inspired...

em also reminded me this morning that here are only 8 more sleeps 'til kindergarten. she told me to try and not be too sad. (i smiled and told her i was really excited too. arms stretched out excited. thumb and pointer-finger about 1/2 an inch apart sad.) we really are jammin' through. hope to take them as slowly as we can.

happy monday all.

Love the shoebox guitar on the guitar stand, too cute. I love the way little ones blur the line between reality and pretend. Of course her guitar belongs there, it is a guitar stand after all.

the shoeox guitar is awesome! remember when we saw the jug band at the pizza place? that had me real inspired to make a wash basin bass, but i never did.

enjoy your week...

What a wonderful weekend! We spoiled ourselves and went out to brunch on Saturday and Sunday. So good!

Love the shoebox guitar. Must make one for Big J. He is constantly opening up the hubby's guitar case and strumming away.

stephanie - oh i do remember that band. they were great - will have to keep my eyes out of a wash basin!

and yes - breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. and breakfast out is always high on the list
