We've been very productive since last Friday: we saw a children's production of "Charlotte's Web" at a local theater, ate lunch at Taco Cabana,
bought a dining table (we have a dining room! like real grown-ups!),
bought two extra chairs to go with the dining table (note the lamp on the floor--very sophisticated),
ate dinner with GrandMom, GrandBob and Aunt M at Taste of Texas steakhouse, found a bed for S's room (pics to follow when we get it put together!), hung some pictures, cleaned the house, visited Old Town Spring (several streets of antique stores and fun shops), spent a gift card at the Build-A-Bear workshop, and the girls spent a night with GrandBob and GrandMom! On top of that I've done laundry, made a bunch of phone calls I've been putting off, gone to the grocery store, and took about twenty books back to the library. All the shopping has been fun, but I'm looking forward to my quiet office just a little bit.
The girls and R are just hanging out the rest of the week, getting ready for a big weekend: on Saturday, Pop and Baba are coming to visit from Tennessee, and they're bringing the cousins! They're staying until Wednesday, and H has made quite a list of all the things we need to see and do while they're here. We'll see our Texas cousins this weekend as well, and we're so excited to hug and kiss on them all, provided, of course, that they sit still long enough. The boys are very hard to catch!
