Well, it was a pretty depressing weekend in the world of Chicago sports. Definitely not how I was hoping to start the week. Let’s just move on before I shed a tear… L
There were some high points this weekend. We had family pictures on Saturday. Yes, we just took pictures not too long ago. I guess I’m a glutton for punishment. But I wanted a family photo that we could use for our Christmas cards and the ones we had taken on that 90 degree day a couple months ago just didn’t say Christmas to me. I felt silly scheduling another photo session after the horrendous session last time, but A assured me that I would never regret having too many photos, but I may regret not having them taken. I love that husband of mine. He’s a wise one. So alas, we set out to a little canoe launch just down the street. It wasn’t my favorite setting, but it was about 5 minutes from home. On the bright side, there were no tears or meltdowns. On the downside, the morning started off in the 30 degree range and I’m fairly certain there will be no photos in which the boys are both looking at the camera. I guess that’s just how photo sessions with little ones go.
The remainder of the day was spent trying on my Stitch Fix items (more on that in an upcoming post) and grocery shopping. W and S both took long naps that actually overlapped for about 45 minutes!!
Sunday was our usual. A and I went to a baby shower and it was fun to catch up with friends even though we could only stay for a short time. I made chili in the crock pot. Yum! Nothing says fall like a pot full of chili! And that was pretty much our weekend. W has always loved to help, but he’s been exceptionally helpful recently. He made cookies with Nani on Friday, raked leaves with daddy yesterday, and then helped me make chili.
