Busy Week

November 11, 2008

Wow...time for an update. Last week, Ryan's grandfather, Norman, passed away. He lost his battle with cancer. Although I didn't know him well, I am glad that he was able to spend some time with Zoe. He will be missed. We attended his funeral service this weekend. My cousin Alan came to town. I hadn't seen Alan in over a year, so it was nice to have him come spend the weekend with us. We just hung around the house watching movies and eating. I made homemade donuts though, and those were a bit hit. Zoe had never seen anyone with a beard before so she got a scared by Alan's beard at first, but after a few minutes she sat and stroked his face, it was quite funny to watch. Her fascination with hair is so funny. Zoe's tooth in coming in still and is causing much distress. She is more cranky and fussy than usual. I'm hoping that the first tooth is the worst and that she will get better after this one. It's amazing how quickly time flies after Halloween. As soon as trick or treating is over, the Christmas shopping begins, it's crazy. We didn't have a Christmas tree last year, so I am really looking forward to having one this year. I already got some ornaments on sale at Crate and Barrell this summer. I'm still deciding what to do about stockings. I was thinking about making them, but then I saw some adorable ones at Target that weren't very expensive and look way better than anything I could make, so I might but those and then just embroider our names on them. I guess I have a few weeks to decide. This week is our first week in a long time that we don't have a ton of stuff planned so I am hopefully going to be able to get some deep cleaning in, along with some relaxation and maybe even crafting! Have a great week everyone. I will take some pictures of Zoe this week and put them up....I know that's why you all read this blog anyway :) XOXO, Holly & Co.
