Coming Down from the Facebook High

This morning we had ECFE and then I had some errands to run all the way through until lunchtime. Part of the errand run was spent over at my sister-in-law's house as she gears up for baby #4 coming this week. With all she has to do she was gracious enough to feed William lunch while we were over there.

"Jenny," she told me as I protested, "I have to make lunch for the other kids anyway so what's the difference?"

I obliged.

By the time we got home it was already naptime. Which means I spent a total of 18 hours away from Facebook. Brian assured me the shaking would soon subside.

Besides Facebook we have a jam-packed couple of weeks ahead of us. As I already mentioned, a new Nash cousin should be gracing us with his or her presence on Thursday if all goes as planned. That means Brian's family will pile into town for the baby viewing and most likely need a couch to sleep on.

And then there's William's birfday on Friday. I know. Can you even believe he's going to be two?! How the heck did that happen?

We're trying to keep it pretty low key but on the docket for Saturday will be William's first trip to the movie theater to watch Madagascar 2. I hear it's supposed to be pretty good for kids and adults alike so we're giving it a try. I'm going to try to be open minded about the whole thing. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work. But I really hope it does and that he enjoys himself. You can bet your last dollar there will be a picture on this blog of his little legs trying to keep the seat from folding in. Hilarious!

Once the birthday partying is complete that brings us to the week of Thanksgiving. I feel like we just started November and now it's already the end. But that's OK. Besides the turkey and William's birthday, November is kind of blah. Don't ya think?

This year I'm really anxious to get the holiday season in full swing. I think it's because I'm excited that William's old enough to get excited about all the lights, glitter and action. Not to mention toys. I know, I know, Christmas isn't supposed to be all about the presents. But seriously. This kid needs a truck.

Once, a few months ago, I bought him a three-dollar firetruck out of guilt and he's been driving that thing around ever since. But see? I didn't buy him anything all year long so now he can appreciate toys and will be all the more excited when Christmas arrives. He's also been asking for a guitar or piano. Go figure. Just thought I'd add that in there in case Grandma's reading.
