This has been quite a busy weekend for us. Our son is due December 12th so we wanted to make sure we took care of things around the house now, before it got too busy. Friday was budget day. I reviewed the statements and receipts to see where we could cut back on our spending. We then went out for dinner with some friends. Kind of a last hurrah as non-tethered-parents.
Saturday we went to everybody’s favorite tree lot (Home Depot) and pick out a nice (cheap) Douglas Fir and set it up. Then we stocked up on prepackaged food from Trader Joe’s and Costco – yum! By now, Julia was pretty tired so while she napped on the couch, I strung the lights around the tree. Then I was tired so while i rested Julia put the ornaments on. That’s team work.
After watching a few movies we went to bed. Then Julia went into labor and 4 hours later, Corbin Alexander was in our arms. I’ll post more when I’m fully rested but the key details are…
