Life has been busy lately.
Last week, Chas' sweet, sweet grandma passed away.
It was good to see her go so peacefully (at 1am on her late husband's birthday) but we will miss our Red Lobster dinner dates with her.
The funeral this past weekend was lovely. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard at a funeral. The perfect party, just the way Nan would've had it.
Chas' birthday on Wednesday was swell.
It started off with the birth of a brand new niece, baby Evelyn!
For lunch, we had Hires cheeseburgers and onion rings with Chas' brother's family from New York (in town for the funeral).
The birthday boy came home from work to balloons, some birthday cards, and a special present.
I got him a sweet remote control helicopter which we'll be playing more with this weekend, including building an obstacle course.
The two of us had a special rotisserie chicken and homemade mashed potatoes for dinner and I did all the dishes while Chas played with his helicopter.
Then we went with some friends to see "The Artist." (If you haven't seen this movie, stop everything you're doing right this second and go, go, go!)
And now, as I'm writing this post, Chas is putting together our new rocker glider for little cryings...and I'm double fisting a huge bottle of Tropicana orange juice (yup- we're back to that).
February isn't going to slow down much.
But that's ok because once February is over, I'll be in my third trimester!
How did that happen?
