Weekends – Happy Fall!

Yay! Fall has come to Houston (well, close enough) and we made sure to enjoy it this weekend.

On Friday, Marion took her first visit to Daddy at work and was thoroughly doted on by everyone 🙂

Josh has moved back up to the 39th floor (for good now) and has his own fancy office! No more cubeland for him!

On Saturday, I met up with my girlfriends for some knitting – our first time to meet since before the stupid hurricane.

Which resulted in the first installment of white trash baby.

White trash baby results when momma forgets to pack a change of clothes and M pees all over herself while being changed. Please note she kept her bow on though. But I didn’t let it stop me from knitting – since she was in the Moby Wrap, she was warm and comfy and I just kept on. Although this was the first knitting group where I didn’t actually knit a stitch …

Then we came home, I watched football and she and Josh napped

We also did some baking

Pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and fall leaf sprinkles

These were so delish – in Josh’s words, they tasted like pumpkin pie in a baked good form. I just wish Martha had called them “muffins” instead of “cupcakes” and I could justify eating them for breakfast better that way.

We spent Halloween night decorating them

Because Marion thought Halloween was a great excuse to fall asleep early – so no trick or treating for us.

I also got some new running shoes and we broke them in with a family walk

Someone also used this weekend as an opportunity to learn to squeal!

Now for random weekend cuteness:

    Just gets cuter and cuter! I can’t stand it! Miss her so much and hate missing all the changes. She is beautiful. Looks like Josh’s baby pics when sleeping. Love Ms Libbie

    I agree with Libbie – she is precious !!! She looks like she has grown so much. Are her eyes brown ? They appear to be on my computer screen. I love the way you’re keeping us up to date with the pictures. I took a copy of one with the polar bear to show off at bridge last week.

    Love to all,
