Grandma Pati and Grandpa Al

While John and I were celebrating the wedding of William and Kate in Victoria, BC. (Kidding, we were there for another reason, but I couldn't help making John pose with their cut out.  The Canadians were c.r.a.z.y about this wedding, hosting a 2AM viewing in the lobby of the Empress even.)  the kids went to stay with Grandma Pati and Grandpa Al for a few days.  My favorite part of leaving those two is coming back and hearing about what they did while we were gone.  They remember something new and equally hilarious every day after for at least a week.  For example, on Saturday we learned that "real, mechanical" dinosaurs are coming to the Seattle Zoo, and Monday we heard that they got to go see Rio and that Grandma snuck in her own popcorn (yes, she makes that good a bag o' popcorn, it's true!) Sunday we learned that they both wet the same bed one night (sorry guys, hope at least Brodie held his bladder that night) and today I heard Lucy singing, "No one can tell me that I'm doin' wrong today...whenever I see your smiling face my way" (James Taylor)  Thank you both for the fun, the love and the education!

Love hurts... eyes.  Lucy was born in the year of the Rat.  I was born in the year of the Horse.  I learned this at dinner one night while pregnant with her.  I also learned that; The Rat and the Horse make quite an interesting pair! As opposite Signs in the Chinese Zodiac, their relationship may be marked by friction.  Well, you said it Chinese Calendar!  Below is one of Lu's latest battles, one I am glad to let her win with only the slightest of winces.

Congratulations William and Kate

Good Job and a Box Lunch

I put together these home-made box lunches for our teachers at St. Pat's today as it is "teacher appreciation week" and I was excited to finally be able to put these "civilettes" to work.  I found them at Oblation in the Pearl District last year.  Instructions on the box; Use in the event of a job well done by colleague, family or friend. and the back of each card reads, Please reuse responsibly.  Love it.
