I didn't do much Saturday except very intentional, necessary rest. Today I've been a bit more productive as I have called in prescription refills, folded some (not all) clean laundry, worked on Jamie's Beauty and the Beast costume, put a goodie box together for Cosette to get when she trick or treated here (which she did earlier). I've tidied a bit but nothing really noticeable. I worked on my Italian, of course - never miss a day - I watched a lot of football yesterday. I've watched a lot of documentaries today. Basically, it came, it went, it was a weekend.
< ---- Cosette in her Princess Anna costume including her adorable little boots! I can't wait to dress her in leggings and boots this Winter! She was a bit out of sorts because they stopped by for just a few minutes for us to see her and were in a hurry to leave and get to church but Tasha was downstairs looking for stuff to borrow for her own costume... it was nuts there for a minute. And of course, Mawmaw and I were snapping photos the whole time!
Does this "Trunk or Treat" deal sound crazy to you? Essentially it's a group of people who gather in one location (like a church parking lot) and instead of trick or treating door to door, the kids trick or treat from one trunk of a car to the next trunk. Some people go all out with the trunk decorations, some are bland. It's great for collecting a lot of candy in a short distance and you know you aren't bothering anyone by knocking on their door. Also, up here, going door to door is not practical as houses are generally spaced way too far apart, there's not standard street lighting and roads and driveways can be really steep (like ours).
I fell asleep last night as I was typing this blog. I slept hard until 10pm and then woke up. Woke up again at midnight and then only dozed from midnight on until morning. I was semi-dozing when Tasha sent me a "do you want a baby girl?" text this morning and I had to defer until tomorrow. I'm just wiped out. From doing nothing. Well, I did a few things yesterday but still. This is my life. Some days I just can't function and today is one of those days.
Oliver is the same way. I feel like he is loved and treasured by so many people... he's got his parents, Marquee's parents who absolutely adore him, Marquee's Aunt is basically another grandma for him - she loves him so much, Marquee's grandma Josie loves him to pieces and of course, he's got me, Mawmaw and Pop up here and he feels quite at home and comfy here too. Since I FaceTime with him so often, whenever Cody gets his iPad out Oliver starts saying, "Nana!" because that's what Cody uses for FaceTime. Both babies are surrounded by people who love them deeply and that means the world to me.
I was just going to share some Halloween photos and I got into this very emotional subject of my grandbabies... but truly, they are just my heart and they make every bit of life better! Here are some pictures of Oliver that I snagged from his iCloud folder from this weekend:
Now here are some pictures of me from Snapchat this weekend. I know I've said this a thousand times but I LOVE Snapchat filters because they hide a thousand flaws and add makeup and other disguises. I'm constantly taking selfies... so vain... but I want my grandkids to be able to look back and say, "wow Nana... you filtered yourself really well!".
