We are officially done excursioning
The wedding is over, our sojourns are done. Thank you Ashley for ensuring that I was well dressed...when my sister saw me all fixed up for the dinner, she said, "Holy cow, who got you ready? Whose clothes are those?" What, like I am incapable of dressing myself....? Thanks Ashley. It was wonderful. And now that my sister is officially married, she has earned the right to begin the blog. I am still waiting for wedding pictures to come my way. Here are some of the slim pickings that I do have.
The following weekend we went to Mesa, AZ for a dental conference and to stay with my wicked awesome aunt Wendy, Nana Poof to Eli...we figured if he was going to spend a whole five days with someone that so closely resembled the authentic Nana, that said authentic Nana should get credit for spending time with him. So, Wendy has slightly, and by slightly, I mean greatly more, poofy hair than my own mother. Thus, Nana Poof she became. Eli wasn't quite sure about the whole deal. He would stare at her when we asked where Nana was, scowl for a minute, and then go break one of her large terracotta pots or picture frames....really I was quite surprised that we left the brand new gorgeous house with so little damage: only one broken pot, one broken picture frame, a small hole in the wall and a missing phone. Can you believe they invited us back to come play at their awesome pool and house? I can't. I guess we are just that cool. Here are some more admittedly bad pictures; we figured it was high time Eli learned to cliff jump.
Anyway, I am actually so excited to be back for good and get back to more important things, like following the elections religiously in between following my kid around the house and putting away things that he pulls out of places I didn't know he could reach...like knives and such. That kid...I am not the type who plans things like Halloween costumes months in advance, but he is definitely being a devil for Halloween-this much I know. Anyone have a red cape and devil horns I can borrow? Remember, we are poor.
