We had a busy weekend! Owen had his first official babysitter Friday night while we went to our annual ornament exchange party, and I would have been fine had I not let him pull a Meredith-Viera-trying-to-ice-skate-with-Will-Ferrell move (google it if you don't get the reference) less than 30 minutes before I had to leave him. Only in Owen's version he was in the kitchen naked and slipped and fell in his own pee puddle.
Note to self: Remove this post before Owen gets to middle school.
On Saturday we went to Southside to watch the Jingle Bell Run. We cheered on our more fit friends and enjoyed the spectacle of runners in Santa hats and dogs dressed like reindeer. Saturday night we celebrated Scott's birthday here with his family, and Sunday afternoon we kept the 1-year-old nursery for 3.5 hours during a church event. I'm happy to report everyone survived the latter-mentioned activity. Somewhere in there, we also put up our tree - which we've decided to rock old school as long as there are kids in the house. Bring on the giant multi-color bulbs, mismatched ornaments and construction paper chain link garland - we can handle it!
And I'll close with kisses from Owen. Yes, that's Kenny Loggins' "Celebrate Me Home" playing in the background. How unfortunate.
