After a full week of travel (two planes, two hotel rooms and three different time zones), I arrived home Saturday afternoon sporting a pretty unfortunate head cold. The girlies were feeling pretty cruddy too, which, while sad for them, was convenient for me, as all I really wanted to do after six days away was cuddle in the bed with them and watch movies. So the weekend was pretty much the movie/cuddle-fest, some reading and drawing and the beginnings of "Operation Valentine 2011" -- we try to make homemade ones every year (they're not always pretty, but it's the thought that counts, right?) and between both girls, we're up to 54 (!) classmates, so we have to start early. We're playing with some pen and ink handwritten notes adorned with Japanese masking tape mini-bunting. We'll see how they turn out ;-) Alt was completely fantastic and inspiring this year (more on that later), but boy am I glad to be home! Hope you had a splendid weekend friends.
