We've been busy as always the last couple of weeks, though, and I've managed to capture a few of our little moments. First off, Thomas went back to EBLS on the 20th. I'm planning to do a whole "Back to School" post on Wednesday when Gordon goes to pre-schoool, since Gord is thrilled out of his mind and Thomas is used to the whole thing. I think Chris, Gordon and I were more excited for Thomas than he was for himself-- not that it wasn't a fun day, but he wasn't anticipating anything really new. He does have a new teacher this year, who so far has been great, and he was excited to see his friends again.
My boys on the first day of school-- aren't they cute?
The next day, as posted, Chris and I celebrated our anniversary. Chris took the night off, so we went to dinner at our favorite Logan restaurant, Le Nonne, where we enjoyed the spoils of a night with a babysitter. I tried to get a little bit dressed up-- as you can see, my hair isn't the only thing looking thick and full these days!
By the way, I will be doing another prego post for those of you who enjoy that sort of thing. In the meantime, I'm feeling fine, just chunky, and I keep getting that 80's song by Europe in my head. "It's the final countdown... "
Since it's just the two of them in the mornings for now, Chris and Gord have been busy finding things to entertain themselves. They've taken one of the boys' favorite activities, "making a parking lot", to a whole new level!
And finally, last weekend and continuing to today, we've been doing a little home improvement work. My lovely home office is now back on the "someday" list, as it has been painted blue, refurnished with two twin beds and way too many toys, and become the big boy bedroom. Like their dad, they love to paint-- and we were mostly appreciative for the help!
Even though it's blue paint, Tom knows that our blood runs crimson red in this house!
The upstairs room, formerly Tom and Gord's lair, has been touched up with more blue paint (so convenient), and outfitted with the crib, changing table/dresser thing, and a newish rocker I found on Craig's List. I try not to have a panic attack every time I walk by!
Speaking of our Utah Utes, Saturday finally marked the first game of the season! Here's a funny little glimpse into my life with a hardcore Ute fan: Chris had a hard time sleeping last week, and when I asked if he wasn't feeling well or something, he said, "No, I'm just really nervous about Saturday." Depending on who you are, you'll find that either really cute, really funny, or really, really sad. Anyway, the Utes played awesome in the first half against Michigan in the Big House (even though there were way, way, way too many penalties, Kyle Whittingham... sheesh), and the second half was a nail-biter. My favorite quote of the day: "Make them suffer for their sins" (from Chris, of course, referring to the Ute D pounding on Michigan's poor freshman quarterback). So, let's breathe a collective sigh of relief for the Utes' first game and first victory of the season. WHEW! Next week, we'll be in SLC for the home opener against UNLV.
