We spent the weekend after Christmas in Topeka with extended family, gathering together for dinner on Friday, and staying at Grammy M's Thorton Place over the weekend. Wendy had a reunion planning meeting with high school friends on Saturday, and braved the blizzard to be there while everyone else remained snugly indoors. We also stopped by to see the Bahr family: Lorelei and Brett played while Gryffy and his new buddy, Preston, got to hang out with their mamas.
The blizzard was quickly replaced by sixty degree temperatures on Monday, in which Lorelei got to test out her hula hoop, give tricycling another go, and get out her new, pink soccer ball. Gryffy just sat with Mommy and watched.
Tonight is Mark and Wendy's six-year anniversary. Grammy and BPop are going to babysit during our date at the local movie theater, which serves dinner and drinks during the show. We're hoping to see Seven Pounds. It's amazing how much our lives have changed since our wedding day: three moves, several jobs, and two amazing kids... and still I'm grateful every day that I get to share all this with my best friend, my husband. I love you, Mark.
