Pictures! (to make up for a lapse in writing…)

October 22nd, 2006

I realize that in the world of blogging, a four-day haitus from posting is nothing short of neglect, or at the very least, bad manners.   So please forgive the lapse, and know that Kenny and I  are here, alive and kicking!

In these past four days, we have spent loads of time at my parent’s house with my visiting grandparents (otherwise known as “Gigi and Papa” to Kenny),

…and we went to another pumpkin patch, this time with Daddy:

We also bought Kenny’s first pair of “big boy shoes” (hard soles, as opposed to his beloved leather-soled StarChild shoes) … let me tell you, that has gone over like a funhouse at a funeral.   You would think that we were practicing the art of footbinding the way he carried on.   It wasn’t until today, four days after the purchase, when Casey took him outside to play some football in the yard that he finally forgot his discomfort, and kept them on the rest of the day.   The previous record had been fifteen seconds.

And finally, I had my first ever “girls night out” since Kenny’s birth!  

I went out last night with my sister and my cousin.   It was very tame and suburban, but fun all the same.   Let me clarify – I have had opportunities to “go out” before, but, call me a sentimentalist, I just love  hanging out with Casey so much, I’ve chosen to be with him everytime there’s been an chance to have someone else watch Kenny.     What can I say, my husband is my best friend!

So while I was away from the computer, the time was well-spent.   Lots of fun, lots of memories made, and I even had a night off to boot.
