Thanksgiving Weekend Recap

DSC03929 DSC03931Gabby the Tabby got sick. Seems it was kitty gastritis. Remember how I lectured the kids when we took her out of the shelter that I do not believe in expensive medical care for animals? Who quickly agreed with the vet that she needed IV therapy and an afternoon spent in their infirmary? Cat-moms can change their minds 🙂

Meditative pie-baking. Always.

Can you understand how hard it has been over the years to facilitate ‘game nights’ here at the Costello House? Who can read? Who can add? Who gets the strategy of this game and the rules? Simple request – hard to deliver. When game night easily broke out on it’s own one evening, I felt like we had reached some sort of milestone 🙂

Brothers & food prep. Dennis alerted me to this photo op. Too much.

These guys and many more like them littered my kitchen floor the entire weekend. Everyone played.

I crocheted myself these little beauties to organize my crochet needles stash and to help me take my crochet practice way more seriously 😉

There was nothing stellar about these last few days – but I dug them.
