Great weekend! Phew-after friday I will say this weekend was much needed and enjoyed by all. After a day of the library, lunch, and some girl time-Charlotte came to spend the night. The cousins had a fabulous time and there was much sadness about her departure come sunday morning. I was excited to get out of the house as I had a day of sewing ahead of me in Portsmouth. Very fun class mostly because I got a chance to be around other people who were excited about learning to sew. The instuctor was fun and seemed to inspire a lot of energy into all of us about what we can do. I left with a pile of fabric and thoughts about more that I want to create.
As I ran out of town, I got to see a glimpse of Phil and Sri crossing the street and a quick chat before I was racing home to get to the Randalls to watch the Pats WIN (who sucks Pedro?) Have to say I was just as excited to see the Giants win! Two great games, second one-SOOOOO cold, wow! Great time with the Randalls. And brought two sleepy girls home much later on.
Today we got to spend a lovely afternoon with the Chapmans. So great! Hard to say how much I love spending time with them. I only wish we were closer.

Victory is sweet!
Such a long way from lazy grad school days
Poor Adah-surrounded by goons
Really the best part of the whole weekend-When Ella read us Green Eggs and Ham. It took a couple sittings but it was really quite awesome-breathtaking. She is really starting to crack the code. Sounding out words is coming easier and easier.
We made a picture today-Super Daddy and Molly to the rescure with their helmets.
Made some new napkins-“sew” easy. hahaha
The fabric I picked out for my skirt.
We are finishing off the weekend watching StarDust. Great fantasy movie. Witches, magic, enchanted love. I recommend it. Plus it has Claire Danes. Really Love Her!
So despite wishing I was some place really warm, i will head back to school tomorrow. We have another day of Steve before he heads back to work. We will probably catch up on the Wire tomorrow night. Another great season.
All I wish is that I could spend more time with the fam. I wish we had ONE more day. I am feeling greedy.
