I’m waiting to get my hair cut, so I have a few minutes.
This past week has been amazing. My grandparents have been in town for the past week. Over the weekend, my Uncle Joe and Komo flew in for the birthday party. It was so much fun to have a little family reunion. It’s been at least a year since we’ve seen the grandparents. I think the last time we saw anyone else was two years ago when we all met in Korea for Uncle David’s wedding!
We had so much food at the birthday party. Everything was amazing from the lobster crab bisque and bacon covered dates to the medium-rare steak and buttery polenta.
We’ve had several game nights that involved lots of screaming and laughter. My sides still hurt from yesterday’s Camel Up race.
We spent a Saturday canning fresh apples from the mountains. #applebutterfordayyysss 😉
Uncle Joe flew back home yesterday morning, and tomorrow my grandparents leave. Komo will be here till Friday I think.
It’s been fun. This whole weekend has been great.
I started that ten days ago and never finished. 😛
Komo didn’t leave on Friday. She actually ended up staying ’till this past Monday due to job transfers. We miss her and her delicious cooking, but we know she’ll do great in Sauna City. 😉 We did so much, I can’t keep everything straight. We got haircuts: Mom, Komo, and I. My hair grew out over the summer and became way too long and heavy. So, I got it all cut, layered, and I even brought back the bangs! I haven’t had bangs since I was like five… 😀
On the night before Komo left, we all did a spontaneous reenactment of the opening scene of Beauty and the Beast! It started out with Dad installing a lightbulb that plays music in our living room through Bluetooth! The ladder was still up, so Komo wanted to take advantage of that and do a scene of some sort. Singing In Rain didn’t work out so well, but I just so happened to have the Broadway soundtrack for Beauty and The Beast! So, after about two hours of recording one minute scenes and convincing the sibs to play various parts complete with low-budget costumes, we produced five whole minutes of entertainment. I was so happy and excited I cried like five times. Every dream I had of directing and putting on a production came true that night! 😉
Oh, we also learned how to make tres leches all pretty and picture-perfect like Komo does at the restaurant.
It’s been really fun having family in town. I’m a little sad that the triplets never made it, but we shall see them sometime in the near future, I believe.
That’s all for now. I’ve got work in the morning.
