Catching up on some pictures I need to post! We went with friends to the latest So You Think You Can Dance show a couple of weeks ago. Kenny and Marc surprised me and Ann with tickets and the show was amazing – the best one yet! Ann and I had so much fun and were patting ourselves on the back for how well we’ve trained our husbands.
Last Friday Kenny’s firm had a little party in honor of the new partners. We were supposed to be there at 4:00 and I had been having the craziest day. Running errands – carpooling – Kole hadn’t had a nap. I looked at the clock in my car on my way to pick up the girls and realized I’d have about 20 minutes at home to get all four of us ready. Of course when I got to Addie’s pre-school to pick her up she was covered in dirt from the sand pile. I flew home and threw her in the tub, got everyone dressed and ready and fed the girls a snack and gave Kole a bottle in the car. Record speed!
The managing partner at his firm (pictured with us above) spoke about Kenny and the other two new partners. Then it was Kenny’s turn to speak and thank everyone publicly. I tried to relax from the harried afternoon and enjoy the moment. My kids were loving so much attention from various adults. It was a special afternoon for our family and I was reminded again of how grateful I am for Kenny’s job and for all of the great, supportive people he works with. (just need to remember that when his clients are getting much more of his attention than I am…)
In other news, Christmas is in full swing at our house! The halls are decked and we are counting down to Santa’s arrival. My girls are at such fun ages. Their excitement for all things Christmassy is completely contagious!
Time to go finish my Christmas cards! As of this point I’ve assembled them all. A third of them are in envelopes, with stamps and addresses written, another third that just needs stamps, and the rest still need to be addressed and put in envelopes. As soon as I finish this post I’m turning on Family Man (one of our favorite Christmas flicks) and wrapping things up!
