We were out of town this weekend, and arrived home mere minutes before the National Anthem was sung. Now that was a highlight. Renee Fleming was fabulous, and I absolutely loved the fly over. I like when the anthem is sung as written, without a lot of curly cues, and runs and riffs, or whatever you call the nonsense so many celebs like to add to make it more about them, and less about our nation. I'm also a big fan of Bruno Mars, and his halftime show did not disappoint.
We spent the weekend with hubs sister and brother in law, and their two boys, which is always a lot of fun. My brother in law is a very talented musician, and they had a house concert so we trekked to Maryland to hear him play.
I had to drive the whole way there, because hubs was literally on the phone the entire four+ hours. Literally. Not exaggerating even a little. I kind of wanted to fling the phone out the window, but I resisted. He may have wanted to fling it out the window too.
We've made this trip many times, but for some reason there is one spot in the journey where we always look at each other and ask if we're on the right road? Is this right? Does this look familiar? Do we go through the city? Didn't we go around last time? Rest assured we were on the right road, but there is always a moment of panic as we scramble to figure it out. Usually a U-turn too, ahem. And hubs would probably say the panic is all me, but whatever, we made it.
Saturday we hung out, ran some errands in preparation for their party, dined at Chipoltle, and listened to the boys explain the finer points of Java script and computer coding. It is in moments like these I realize the gap in technology knowledge between our generations is gargantuan. I'm glad there are smart kids coming up to create the next wave of stuff we can't live without. Glad they can walk me through the steps to use it too!
Hubs brother1 and his wife arrived late afternoon Saturday, and we haven't seen them in a long while so it was nice to catch up in person. I didn't take many pictures, but did snap one of the hubs with his brother and sister. No matter how big the 'kids' get, mothers never tire of photos like this one. Hubs brother2 was on a work trip, so missed the music this time around. It was a lovely evening.
So it's snowing here.
Just thought you should know.
I have a million things going on this week, including but not limited to, putting away my Snow Village. Don't judge! It's still technically winter, so I feel perfectly fine leaving it out
longpast the holidays. I realized yesterday though, that it's suddenly February and spring will be here soon (HA!) so I guess it's time.
Merry Christmas everyone!
