While we were gone, there was a really bad wind storm I guess and the foam mats I had placed in the backyard.......
.......had blown up against the backside of our house, despite the bricks I had placed on each corner to hold it down. Griffin's beloved tent, however, was not so lucky. A week past before Jeff asked me where it had gone. I figured Jeff had put it away before we left. It was then, we realized the space tent was ours no longer. Hopefully it made it into the hands of some homeless person. Or perhaps it will be the hibernating station for some lucky animal up in the mountains. Griffin hasn't asked about it yet...... cross your fingers.
We put up our tree this past Home Evening:
Kai, on the other hand, was constantly pulling off the ornaments and driving his Lightning McQueen car all through the branches. That's what he's doing in this next picture:
And, NO, Griffin is not peeing on the tree. Even though his pose might suggest otherwise.
We also went out with some friends and had family pictures taken. It was too dark for most of them to turn out and SO RIDICULOUSLY COLD!!!
(notice Griffin's "I'm freezing" fake smile)
OH, yes, it's definitely winter.
