This week has been a very busy, but fulfilling one. We have been packin' in all we can before we will be hanging out at home for a while. The weather has been unseasonably gorgeous, 66 degrees yesterday, and so it's been nice to be outside a bit.
On Monday it rained all day, but we took a drive to go to a museum in Dover. The museum was closed, but I was really ok with that because the drive was so festive. We drove past several antique shops, quaint New England homes, and beautiful churches. There were fresh pine wreaths with red bows hanging on the church doors and many of the homes, it was a scene out of a movie. Melanie and I stopped, with the kids mind you, at one of the antique shops and I scored an amazing vintage highchair for free! I already have one that two of my darling friends from out here gave me. Melanie said, "Oh, so you are a highchair collector." Yes, I am strange, I guess I have a thing for them.
For playgroup this week we got a tour of the fire station. The kids loved it and Caroline loved pretending to drive the fire engine so much that I thought she was going to break off the window wiper device.
Today we remade a little Winegar family tradition and made some festive sugar cookies. We didn't have Caroline's cousins there, Liam frosting his cookie to the table because he can't get enough of it, but it was so fun to make them with her. We played Frank Sinatra's "J-I-N-G-L-E Bells" in the background and got flour everywhere. The best part is we are saving some for my mom to try because she flies in Monday!! Hooray, we can't wait to have her here. She will be here almost 2 weeks and we hope to have an exciting new arrival come during that time. I feel guilty because I still feel really good and I am sleeping well too. I think I am going to be overdue. We are fine with that because it means our little peanut is packing on ounces and that Adam could be done with finals. He finishes the 17th, GOOD LUCK BABE!
