The Northeast has been hit with some heavy rains this weekend! Ick, makes for some cabin fever!!!
We used our time wisely. Yesterday I went shopping with JD for an anniversary present for Doug. Our anniversary is today (6 years!) and the traditional gifts were chocolate, iron and wood. Well, last year it was wood too and I bought Doug a Japanese Maple Tree. How romantic right? The tree is tiny and is in our yard, but it is fun to care for and now it is a memory of our anniversary!!! So, I couldn't think of anything fun for iron, chocolate or wood...I ended up buying a fire pit made of iron!!! Doug has been dying for a fire pit and I thought he would love it...I was right! Score for Jill.
For our anniversary, we got our new favorite babysitter Madison to come over so we could go for a very delicious dinner last night. Have I mentioned how much the kids love Madison (she is my cousin and is 13) but oh boy, I love the fact that she plays with the kids the whole time. She even made a huge sign with JD and Anne that said "Happy Anniversary" and hung it on the wall in the kitchen!!!She is the best!!! Thanks Madison for a great night out!
We went bowling today. It was JD's first time actually bowling(he has been several times), he did great. This time he was even "big" enough to finally fit in the shoes!!! Oh boy, watch out they are slippery. He did very well. No strikes but lots of fun. I will attach pics when I download them on my other computer.
This post has turned into a potpourri of information. Sorry for the rambles...I get ahead of myself sometimes. I thought I had nothing to say and then BAM as I type I can think of 12 things to share....for instance,
JD and Anne had Open House at the Elementary School. They are in the same classroom, JD just sits in the back with the speech teacher. Everyone was so excited to show us around...Mrs. Lester thinks JD should come to school 2 days a week, because she said he is the smartest 3 year old she has worked with in a long time!!! Yeah JD! We are still keeping him home though...he is in my preschool 5 days a week and doing just great. Anne was so proud to show us her classroom and all the artwork she has done so far this year. She loves school so much!!!!
I am off to finish laundry...I will post some pics soon!
