Yesterday, as are Saturdays as a general rule, was all about family. My SIL got her computer back... hopefully all working again... We did loads of groceries, which included all the trimm'ens for Z to make her fabo lasagna for tonight... :) (she makes the best lasagna in the known and unknown universe).
Oh, and skating!!! The boys and I spent the afternoon skating on the neighbors back yard rink... It's gorgeous... (and with strings of lights over it... it's even more gorgeous at night!!!)
[ :: This little (750k) video moment :: ] of Geo doing a "look dad... one foot" has a kinda 1960's feel to it... :D
We are not a big skating family... that is to say... I can't skate very well... but I am trying hard to learn to skate backwards.
It was a beautiful (but seriously cold) day...
[ :: daddy... looking cold... but proving he was there... :D :: ]
[ :: and the day ... busy being beautiful... :: ]
[ :: and my little hockey stars! :: ]
~ um... a housecoat... (... hi thedreamingtree)
~ oh shower... for sure... shower...
~ TKD - the big family process on Sundays.
~ a family dinner tonight... a birthday thing for little ol'me... seeing as I'm gonna be a bit out of sorts the rest of the week. :D
~ A new ALIAS tonight... :)
~ I absolutely-for-sure-was-positive I understood the end of Swimming Pool
~ to congratulate pixiecup on finally seeing The Breakfast Club ... my reason-for-doing-this... is expressed in that movie... Ally Sheedy talking to Molly... "why are you being nice to me?" and her answer sums it all up for me.
~ to also congratulate zen2475 on the arrival of her new nephew... :D
~ and a wee hopeful wish out to a muse of a woman... pageeater on the bid...
We made a cookie cake...
... basically, whip cream and chocolate wafer cookies... 10 minutes to make and a kiddie crowd pleaser. :D
Ok... busy day ahead... and the last full day before the hack and slash!! :D
ps. I hope you had a lovely valentines day... It's a bit of a crock but I do appreciate any good excuse for showing the love and reminding the people you truly care about that they count! :D
