This is the first Saturday since the wedding that Erik hasn't had ANY commitments! No scouts, no ushering, no band, no football, no school, no church.... Don't get too excited, our lives pick back up again next weekend =)
This morning we slept in a bit, put away the pots and pans, the corning ware, the Pyrex and we made TOAST!!! If you have ever lived for 8 weeks without a toaster you will understand. Our kitchen is slowly but surely being unpacked and Erik will very soon have his real bedroom.
This afternoon during the football game we worked more on the yard and on thank you notes. We really are so very grateful for all of the lovely things that we received and I feel like a heel for being so tardy in getting thank you cards sent out. I know that Dear Abby says you have a year but that seems like an eternity. My goal is to get them all done by the end of November so that I can spend my writing time on Christmas cards. It is also rather embarrassing to run into people at church and the grocery store when they haven't received their card yet!
Now we're off to to grandma's house for homemade spaghetti and bread. It feels so good to have our happy family all together after a hard day's work!
