Last night as the weekend wound down, Jesse went back to WF, Toby and I reclined in our recliners, I got out my laptop and realized how far behind I am on my blogging and commenting. And with that, I promptly shut the computer and got out my Kindle and played games with my friends. Yeah, that's just the way I roll.
I did manage to get one big gig out of the way this past weekend. Jesse and I put on my DIL's baby shower with some help from a couple of other ladies. The GGs were very excited about the shower for their upcoming brother. I admit that was pretty excited too. The shower was actually a lot of worry and work. It could be that along with my planning of Thanksgiving and our 5K turkey trot, I just felt overwhelmed. But the baby shower went off without a hitch. We did a horse theme placing toy horses on the tables as centerpieces along with some photos of family cowboys. I took a few snap shots of the food table
gift table before Jesse handed me her camera to use as if my point-and-shoot were not good enough. At the end of the shower, Jesse discovered there was no card in her fancy-shmancy camera and, therefore, no pictures. I had handed my little camera to GBN2 and let her have at taking photos. It was a ploy to keep her busy, plus it is good to give kids a job that they think is important. With my little camera there is no real messing things up. GBN2 did a good job of taking photos - better than Jesse and I.
The 5K Turkey Trot is Thanksgiving morning at 8 AM on my neighbor's property. We will be giving out awards and door-prizes. There will be snacks and hot drinks. You can purchase T-shirts for $10, but you need to let me know by this Thursday. It should be a fun run. Then you can eat all the pumpkin pie you want.
