Husband’s birthday was Sunday, he is a prime number this year (as is sister and her husband—they are all prime, which to me is pretty cool to be!), and I made chocolate cupcakes from scratch (I think husband and kids would prefer the unhealthy kind, though), while Tashi made this “eight ball cue” game in the morning pretty much out of thin air, because Daddy likes to play it. Lots of points for creativity!
The big box on the table still wrapped in map paper contained two Star Wars Lego sets, one of which husband built with sourcing assists from the kids. (It’s a new one, featuring BB8 in Lego!) Tashi also wore a birthday-appropriate shirt (cupcakes, from Nina Ping’s collection). She does always tie in her outfits to the theme!
Rio did a birthday card too. I thought I took photos of both birthday cards but can’t seem to locate them on my updated phone… will update this post later. Rio was careful to count out the number of candles. “Mommy you made me lose my place!!”
The night before we had wine club dinner chez Cooke, using a new sitter, who had to field Tashi’s coming down too (but seemed to handle it okay). The panic about Hurricane Joaquin ended up being just that, with the result that by Sunday midday the day turned out to be a beautiful fall day.
I have to take a photo of the finished Lego set too… now we have a place for the finished Lego sets, on our floating shelves in the basement! Will get filled up quickly. We biked into town, parked at the library, and had a late lunch at Raymond’s, then some playground time, then biked back (it’s just over a mile, but a little uphill going back) and watched the last Star Wars movie, so we’re now all caught up for the new one in December. Unfortunately Revenge of the Sith gave Tashi nightmares about lava. She didn’t get to bed till nearly 830pm from getting up multiple times.
Saturday we also had her soccer game in the cold, with rain misting. We biked there too and I was an ice cube (must remember to wear socks next time).
