We had a very busy, very fun weekend. I think Jack is definately ready to just crash today, but unfortunately me and him get to go spend 3 hours at the hematologist's office. FUN!
Anyways Friday night we went to our friends Elaine and John's house for a games night. Unfortunately it didn't get off to a great start because Elaine was at emergency with her oldest son who had a pencil eraser stuck in his ear. They came home not too long later though because there was an enormous wait so they just went to the clinic the next morning. We played with Jack and their kids and then their kids went off to bed but Jack decided sleep was for hosers (usually he sleeps so well at their house, but not that night) and stayed up as we played banagrams until we left around 11ish. It was a good night though and Jack fortunately slept in until atleast 8:30 saturday morning which was enjoyable for both of us.
Saturday we hung around the house all day trying to get Jack to nap lots and catch up on his sleep so he would not be a grouchy baby when we went to a Halloween party that night at our friends the Neebs. Jack borrowed Ben's costume from last year and was a hotdog, Branden and I did not participate in the dressing up.
My lonely little hotdog with the group.
Me and my hotdog!
Jack was highly unimpressed with his costume as it did not leave his feet the freedom to stand and walk and stomp as he pleased. So after just a few minutes he rebelled and screamed until I freed him from the costume. The party was lots of fun.We chatted, ate delicous food and played a rousing game of "Things". By the end of the night though all children were in melt down. Not Jack though because he slept on the floor upstairs for a good hour mid party. I was proud considering his rejection of public sleep the night before. All in all it was a great night.
Sunday was church, a nice afternoon nap and then we went over to Elaine and John's house for dinner. I'm pretty sure they wanted Jack more than us as this was our invitation. 3 o'clock the phone rings. Elaine asks is Jack awake?? Branden says no. Elaine says call us and come over when Jack is awake.. hahaha. Oh well.. we had a delicious dinner. Then we went to Stake Christmas choir practice. Branden stayed the whole time but I didn't even make it into one song before Jack screamed for food and sleep so I took him home and put him to bed.
