A whirlwind weekend. Part 2 - Sunday

Posted by Liz McCoy Tuesday, November 20, 2007
I started falling asleep on Saturday around 8:30 and went to bed early. I woke up early b/c ds is an alarm clock for 6:00 am. The plan for the day was to go up to Tallulah Gorge State Park in the North Georgia Mountains. In order for us to go we needed to leave by 9am to get there for our branch meeting at 11am. I wasn't sure if I wanted to go b/c I was sooo tired but I didn't want to miss anything either. So I decided to go and I am so glad I went the colors in the mountains were AWESOME. Jack loved being outside and walking the trail he walked the whole time and for not having his morning nap we were all amazed. He had a meltdown during the meeting he was sooo tired he didn't know what he wanted just to scream and cry.

We spent the whole day up there and started heading back home around 4-4:30 he didn't sleep on the way home but did take a 45 minute nap while we went to our favorite craft co-op. I wanted to go there b/c I knew they had some wood toys made in the USA. I found a few even got one for my MIL to give him. I just have a hard time asking for toys which could be recalled any minute. I also am having a hard time buying made in china stuff in general. I told the shop worker they should have a big sign out front advertising their lead free toys!!

I finally decided what would be on Jack's xmas list...PUZZLES I picked out some wooden puzzles by melissa & doug who assures their customers their products are completely lead free. We are also starting a 529 plan for Jack and are asking if you have to get him more than a puzzle then give him $$ in savings bonds or college savings.

It is going to be a simple holiday in our household this year...NO EXCESS...I think that is going to be my moto for a while.

Sunday night we stopped at grandma's house for some homemade pizza for dinner then we went home and crashed and went to bed early again....onto monday
