Boy I'd like to sleep in on Saturday, but my eyes are trained to pop open at 6:00. Oh well, I just decided to carpe the diem and here are the results:
We went to the nursery in the morning. We told the kids we were going to pick out a new baby but we came home with flowers instead (much lower maintenance especially in light of our little guy Skate figuring out how to remove his diaper during nap time and the resulting clean-up yesterday, and no we weren't lucky enough to find it was only a wet diaper).
I'll keep posting pictures as it matures (so long as it doesn't all die first since my thumb isn't the greenest).
In the afternoon we made caramel apples with real caramels (not those wrap thingies). It was surprisingly simple, not too messy and tasty to boot! We ate those while playing Monopoly later (where I spent a great deal of time in Jail but came out with some pretty cool tattoos).
I can see my reflection!
And in the evening we did pie!! I have one of those apple peeler-corer-slicers so there are always plenty of volunteers for that job. I used a Martha Stewart recipe for the crust (from her Pies and Tarts book). I hope it tastes as good as it looks!
It's 8:03. Must be pie time!
I slept very well last night (oh, and I decorated my shiny new front door but I have to take pictures!)!
