It was one of the best ones yet... Started Friday with a little tea at Henry's school. His class performed two songs. I would post one but for some reason that function is not working on blogger today so you will have to believe me that it was the cutest thing ever.
Here are some pictures from the event. Henry made me a necklace, a crown and filled out a little sheet about me.
These beautiful flowers were sent from Julia. They are gorgeous and I love how they brighten up the kitchen.
Mary made this for me at school too. I love all these handmade projects - they are just too cute!
Sunday I was woken up by being blasted by a Storm Trooper, that was followed by gifts and brunch. They know we so well, because they got me a Nationals tee and a gift card to go shopping. The best part though was seeing Henry write Mom on the envelope.
After brunch we kind of just hung around and put Mary down for a nap. She was all out of sorts yesterday so that was fun. After she woke, Charlie took the kids up to the park and then we headed to the library. It was a first for Henry and he had a great time! He found three Star Wars books and two random dvd's to bring home. Not sure he understands that they have to go back but we will get to that later.
We left the library and headed to a new place that just opened called the Wine'ing Butcher. Wow, is all I have to say. We got some beef tips marinated in a red wine vinaigrette with garlic for dinner and they wer - AMAZING. Charlie also got a big hunk of mac and cheese that was more then fabulous and I had a little pasta salad. We will certainly be returning there again soon. If you live in Ashburn, check it out - it's over by Dinosaur Park on Ashburn Road.
The night ended with a bottle of wine and watching Lincoln. Who are we kidding, I drank the wine and Charlie watched the movie.
It was such a great day. Thank you to my amazing husband for taking the kids most of the day and many thanks to my kids for making me the mom that I am.
