This weekend was quite awesome. There was much fun and excitement that was had.
Lovely and Little Bear shared a birthday on Friday the 12th. Little Bear, One year old, Lovely, several years passed the quarter-century mark.
Friday night was a date night for Lovely and I. We went to a wing place and dived into some wings and other fried things. Once our sodium levels and blood pressure was higher than normal, we decided to watch a movie. Elizabeth: The Golden Age. GREAT MOVIE!!! I didn’t think I’d like it, but it was quite good. We finally zipped back across the metro area back to the house. It was a great time where we just talked and spent time dreaming and loving each other. It was almost as beautiful as Lovely…almost.
Saturday was a whole different treat. The Catoe three went out to get the stuff for Little Bear’s Dedication & One Year Cookie party at church. Cookies galore and juice. Then back to the hacienda so I could get a chapter or two of the GRE studying under my belt.
Sunday was fun-filled and crazy. Pastor Rodney handled Little Bear’s dedication and did a fantastic job. After the service we all got together and munched on cookies and other sugar-laden favorites and sipped some punch. We watched Little Bear as she tore into her cake. She loved it!!! Everyone cheered her on as she dove face first into the icing and cake. Then after a family photo the majority went to the Garden of Olives to have a lunch gathering. Little Bear opened her color party book, Bentley chewed on a lemon, Nana and Gruff handled the breadsticks, Glammie and Munk glowed at their first grandchild, Kris and LBC held down one end of the table and Lovely and I held down the other.
Once home, there was gratuitous nappage and following that was a viewing of the nearly 4 hour Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
Great weekend, I must say. No fajitas burned me. No yelling from my boss at the restaurant. No threatening of taking away my tips. No yellow shirt and black apron.
Oh, just in case, I’ll get my photos up on Flickr as soon as I can.
