It was a very busy weekend here at Hausfrau Haus. Gramma stayed until Saturday morning so that Herr Hausfrau and I could go out for our anniversary on Friday night! We went out to dinner with some friends we have made here which was quite exciting. They are in the same boat as we are: they are from the Midwest and went away for a long time (most recently Seattle) and they are back so that their two girls can be closer to family. They miss Seattle a lot, so we can relate. At any rate, we scored by going to an AWESOME Thai restaurant. Our friends have been searching for good Thai here in town without much success, so we were all pretty psyched. Then we went and saw Walk the Line. Wow--very good movie. Reese Witherspoon redeemed herself in my eyes as an actress, so if she every does another Legally Blond, I will kick her ass. The best part of the evening for all of us??? We went to dinner with another couple without children interrupting, babies pooping and having to order french fries and chicken nuggets. It was also great to NOT bring a backpack full of granola bars, cheerios and crayons.
My best friend and her family came to visit on Saturday. It was great because we hadn't seen them since she was pregnant with the twins and they will be a year old in December. Their three sons are adorable! The oldest is so mellow compared to my older daughter (he is five months older than she.) Baby Girl was clearly smitten with him and she proceeded to stalk him the entire visit. We had the best intentions of fixing a gourmet dinner on Sunday evening, but our drinking got in the way and we ate appetizers and played Shut the Box (Best of 15.)
Other than that, there is nothing new to report. Baby Girl's artwork continues to make us laugh. Her latest installment is quite funny. The picture on pink paper is me. She is learning to draw details such as eye lashes and hair. Apparently I am still a size 0, which is awesome. What is NOT awesome is the apparent tumor I have on my ear. Herr Hausfrau is featured on the green paper. He has a wicked comb-over of one long strand of hair. She mentioned that "This is Daddy and he is NOT happy." Hence, the mustache-looking frown. The third picture was drawn yesterday while I was on the phone with my friend Lisa. She said that they were bumblebees with belly buttons. And one is "VERY unhappy."
