A Wonderful Weekend!

Wow, what a wonderful weekend. Friday night, we ordered a pizza and watched Everything is Illuminated. If you haven't seen that movie yet, rent it... it's an amazingly beautiful film. Saturday, we got up and headed to the DMV to cast our absentee votes (Forrest commutes, and I'll be in NC). Then, we headed to DC to meet Chris, Beth, and Mia for lunch at a wonderful tapas restaurant. Forrest and I had never had tapas, so after convincing us to order the escargot...ha, just kidding... Beth and Chris were really helpful and made our first tapas experience very enjoyable. I'm not sure if they table next to ours agreed, as Shepherd proceeded to scream throughout the meal (screams of joy and elation). Afterwards, we walked around some, around the white house, and just enjoyed the beautiful fall day. The wind was kicking up leaves, so much so that Shepherd almost choked on a leaf that had blown into his mouth. But it was a lot of fun hanging out with friends, and just being outside. We came home, took a quick nap, and then headed to church. On Sunday, I spent the entire day cleaning like a mad woman. I vaccumed under the bed (which, EW!, who knew it could get so dusty under there?), washed the baseboards, did the laundry, organized the closets in both Shepherd's and our rooms, and much, much more. Forrest kept an eye on Shepherd all day, so it was kind of nice to not have to worry about the little man. And then last night, Forrest worked more on a new site for me (yay!). It's not quite working yet, so you'll have to be patient. We're trying to figure out Movable Type (well, Forrest has most of it figured out, I'm just on the backend trying to learn). So soon enough, I'll have a new page with a spankin' new design, thanks to Forrest.

Anyways... now that I've bored you with the details of our weekend, I guess I could post at least one cute picture of our little man, eh? Maybe sort of redeem the boringness of this post?? Okay...

Taken almost 2 months ago, so I'll have to get a new one tonight at the costume party we're going to. But isn't he cute!?!?

Yes, he's adorable. :) I really wish my son looked as happy in his costume. He was not. Elmo was a bit grumpy. I'm hoping to get a better picture of him on Tuesday ~ that's the last time I'm gonna torture him and make him put the suit on.
