Well, we've had a really busy, really fun weekend and I haven't done a THING related to school! I'm sure I'll pay for this later, but I needed the break. (I know Thanksgiving was just a week ago, but these last few weeks at school are marathons.)
Friday night we went to Cincinnati for the United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cincinnati's SnowBall. One of Pete's business contacts was being honored for his work in establishing rights for kiddos with developmental disabilities to be mainstreamed in public schools. (he and his wife won a supreme court case in the early 80s - giving parents the right to mainstream or not - but to have the choice) There was a silent auction, dinner, awards program, then Mary Wilson of the Supremes came out to sing and wit hit the dance floor. Here's a pic of us afterwards:
We stayed the night at our favorite bed and breakfast - Wallace House - across the river in Covington.
We had to have breakfast early so that we could make it to the Jingle Bell 5k. Pete came in 7th place and second in his age group with a time of 17:59! We came home in the afternoon to watch Kentucky beat UNC at basketball - 68-66 QUITE the nailbiter. Then we changed the channel just in time to see University of Cincinnati beat Pittsburg, and then we watched FLORIDA GET BEATEN!! yay!! We decided we had watched too much t.v. after that and decided to go do some shopping. We went to Joseph-Beth and squared away our Christmas gifts for the nephews.
This morning was the singing of Durante's Magnificat at church. I can't sing in the choir this semester because I have a Wednesday night class, but we still like to support our choir friends. This afternoon the Lexington Philharmonic was having a Holiday Homes Tour so we went to that and then decided to get our Christmas Tree.
It's always an adventure to get it in the Pilot - but we don't have a roof rack!The tree is up and in our living room - who knows when it will get decorated!
p.s. don't you LOVE the new picture in the header?!? Melanie gave us our images from our Nov session on Friday - it's a sneak peek! You'll see another one on our holiday card. (which we ALSO chose this weekend)
