grown up things

Oct 31, 2005 | Life in Progress

The sun came out today for a bit, then snuck back inside. i am in full-on holiday mode right now, and lovin it. the change in weather has me skippin to a holiday beat, especially today. john and i joked about putting on some christmas tunes, but deep down, i think we were both serious. i started a hand-made gift today, and i’m really happy with how it’s turning out. i can’t wait to give it to the person – that’s the best part.

The pumpkin patch birthday party for Sophia yesterday was such a delight. I love watching her. When she saw the colorful card we made for her, she got all quiet, with a big expression of “wow” and wonder on her face, then exclaimed, “Whoa, I want to take all this stuff home”. She is so cute.

John is getting ready for his interview in Rhode Island. He’s nervous and I’m nervous for him. We’re doing all sorts of grown up things to get him ready, like buying a piece of luggage that can properly hold a suit, getting that suit drycleaned, getting john a short haircut, and even buying one of those leather notepads that people take with them on interviews. Not to mention the silly role plays we’ve been doing of questions they might ask and vice versa. The whole thing is cracking me up. The docs at work say the East Coast schools are super uptight and conservative, so for the first time in six years, John’s earring will come out, too. What an ordeal!

Sending much love,

    Kelly and John, thanks for the fun at the Pumpkin patch! I loved going on the hay ride with everyone! Seeing Sophia rip into the bows on your present was great, and of course,she wore the outfit you got her the next day! We love you!
