saturday night we held a little patio pizza party complete with zinnias and sunflowers from the garden. it was our last family dinner with jesse's parents before they drove back to houston.
after an early morning wake-up to say goodbye to grandpa viejo and grandma scrunchies, we decided to make the most of the beautiful sunday start and head over to the bosque to watch the last mass ascension of balloonfiesta. hot drinks in hand, of course. followed by baptisms at church made for an excellent morning.
monday i chose to just keep singing.
the happiest of happy mail is when a friend knows your heart.
i had a root canal on tuesday which was just awful. the pain is just now subsiding and i am getting sensation back in my cheek. so the playing in this outdoor fort for an entire afternoon was just what this mama needed.

and then it was gia's turn in the dentist chair. darn our soft teeth.
my crafting partner at the local anthropologie holiday display workshop. such good mid week crafting therapy.

the cause for praise concert at our church (luca and i spent most of the time in the foyer due to the too-loud-for-his-spd-ears volume) followed by a family date at a favorite local spot was such an unexpectedly sweet time together.
(i forgot to post this last night! church worship concert, family date night and final baby shower prep for this morning were more important. but we'll still count this as day 18. cause i get to make the rules here and all.)
i am joining the nester and will be blogging every single day in october!
