Cabin Fever


Do you remember when I used to look like this?

The boys

I was faking it.

PJ time

A few months back we held a dinner/auction for baby Ian. See for more information. Our friends purchased a weekend at a cabin near Grayson Highlands State Park (or in other words BFE Virginia). Four couples, some with kids, went in on the cost and we spent last weekend together. We didn't know how long the drive would actually take so I left work early on Friday and we headed out. After a good 2 hours of driving (and some majorly windy roads) we finally arrived. We were the first to get there and so we had the place to ourselves for a few hours. We made dinner and played some games and watched Shrek (which is G's new favorite movie). The next group finally arrived after 10 pm. Shortly thereafter, Jaime and I headed to bed.

O Christmas Tree!

Last Monday we had decided that we were going to get a tree and decorate it. Each year we seem to delay the tree purchase and we don't get to enjoy the tree for as long as we would like. So we got an early start and we were thinking that we would buy a live tree. After doing some research, we found out that a live tree needs to be planted after 10 days. So...we ended up buying a cut tree instead. We straightened up the house and then headed to a tree lot to support the local Lion's Club. It turns out the Lion's Club did not need our support because they were closed at 6:50 even though the sign said closed at 7:00. The boys were dead set on getting a tree that night so we forged on. Another tree lot was closed and then we checked Lowe's. They of course were still open so we decided to support our locally operated nationally owned Lowe's. I guess that is the benefit of staying open after hours. We hurried home and decorated the tree and then put the boys to bed.
