The kids and I have been flying solo this weekend with Rolf in Austin helping his parents prepare for their upcoming move. I’ve taken full advantage of our big cat being gone by making more than one trip through a drive-thru and playing Christmas music throughout the whole house thanks to SIRIUS satellite radio. Rolf has this odd conviction that Christmas music shouldn’t be played before Thanksgiving…and, unfortunately, the boys are following in his footsteps as they have accused me of “seasonal interference” all weekend! I don’t care though…I’m still bigger than they are and I’m bullying my way to premature Christmas spirit. Livy seems indifferent and Rudy smiles at me everytime I pass by singing and dancing along to the festive tunes.
Thankfully we’ve had an uneventful weekend on the Rudy-front…no drama, no emergencies. The big kids have kept busy with playdates, house chores, creative play and movies. It has been a fun weekend but I know everyone is eager to see daddy when he returns tomorrow.
Here’s some of the fun on film…
All you Lego enthusiasts will be interested in hearing about the Bionicle sorting session we had this weekend…I asked the boys to sort through them all making sure all the pieces were in the right cannister complete with instruction booklets, etc and we were all amazed to find that their collection consists of OVER 60 Bionicles…insane!!!!! They narrowed it down to the 5 or 6 nearest and dearest and the rest are showing up on CraigsList soon! Ha Ha
