It was an easy going, relaxing long weekend, and we all feel refreshed from it. Pea spent a couple of days with a couple of her grandparents (all told, she has 11 grandparents - a traditional nuclear family we are not) while Elle and I enjoyed some crafting and baking. It was a dreary, drizzly sort of weekend, so we stayed indoors.
We made and played with shadow puppets (and the girls just had fun making shadows :), we tried new foods (some more enjoyed than others!), we enjoyed a power outage while reading by candlelight, and cooked a politically incorrect "hobo" meal in our wood stove - Pea wasn't home during the actual power outage, so we had a "power outage hobo meal" the following night because they both think this is such a treat. Homework was worked on, class presentations were practiced. We also had a nice visit with my mother and nephew, who has so much fun with Elle.
