We had a lovely long weekend here at Casa Stacey. The Short Kid's birthday fell on Thanksgiving Day this year, and we made the trek to Maine to celebrate with my sister, her husband and boys, my mom and my brother-in-law's dad. SK wore his #12 jersey to celebrate his #12 birthday, and he was thrilled to receive this most awesome Patriots hat.
If, when we were kids, you'd told us I'd have fluffy, frou-frou dogs and my sister would have this guy, we probably would have laughed at you. Actually, there's no probably about it. We would have laughed.
We went to a Monarchs game. They lost in OT, but we had a blast as always, and it was a physical game so the Short Kid got to see some hellacious checking, broken sticks and even a few punches thrown.
And, of course, there was some lazy time.
And one more so you can see the total wicked awesomeness that is the hat.
Today, back to school. Back to work. Is it Christmas break yet?
