This past weekend, my mother in law came down for a visit. It was so nice to see her and watch her interact with our son. I’m so grateful that we have such loving grandparents on both sides of our family.
The only downside was that it rained for most of the visit. All the outdoor activities that we planned had to be canceled.
So, that meant we took another trip to IKEA! People, this is my place. We are making a few changes (all stemming from a growing and curious boy) in the layout of our home, so this is a store (and website) that I am frequenting lately. I went with my parents back in September, but this time Michael was able to join in the fun. No pictures yet, but soon, my friends. Soon.
We also went to a Half Price books (well, we went to two this weekend, one of them after his mom left). We have several in the DFW area, and I always seem to find something to purchase, whether for me or for Sam.
I found this book, which I originally saw in a baby store and really wanted to get it. So, I put it on a TBB (To Be Bought) list on Amazon. THEN, I found it at Half Price books at a major discount. Score! I would love to get more of this series. He really loves this one.
And for myself, I purchased this puzzle that I am hoping to frame and put up in my office/library (one of the places getting an upgrade). A 1000 piece set is more of a challenge for me since I don’t do these very often, but it seems a little easier? I guess we shall see!
Of course, Michael’s mom doted on Sam the whole weekend. It was lovely to see the two interact (especially when Mimi was trying to encourage Sam to crawl). I look forward to spending more time with family during the holidays. I can’t believe it’s just around the corner!
