Apologies, blogosphere. It has been one heck of a week! I had a crazy event last Friday, and so I spent every night last week painting signs and sewing yo-yo flowers (don't ask-but keep your eyes peeled for a coming etsy site; I now have about a hundred yo-yo flowers to dispose of). But the event went well, and it was worth it. And, to cap off our weekend (and the end of my sewing adventure), Derek, Dawn, and Kyler came to visit us!
It was so great to get to spend some time with them. We all kicked back and relaxed. There was lots and lots of pajama time! And lots of cooking!
All the cooking led to many attacks by the vicious and devious potholders. The kitchen was a dangerous zone in the morning!
Later, Noah and Aunt Kate came over and everyone embarked on a sledding adventure! We packed up and drove out to Irving, where Kate and I used to sled when we were little. It's a huge hill! The boys were so excited!....until we got there and realized there was no slow left on the hill. But when in doubt, improvise. Dawn had the brilliant idea to go sledding in our back yard! All the snow earlier in the week was piled up.
Yeah. It's piled that high. Russ could sled down on it with the kids. Who were, in fact, having a blast. Noah and Kyler got along great!
After a rousing snow fight, we all hung out and watched the Super Bowl together before Clan Grooters had to head back to Iowa on Monday morning. It was so nice to have them here with us, and we're hoping to head over there and see them soon!
