My friend Emily (Miss Mommy) had her baby this week, little Elizabeth Sophia (Lizzie). I was so excited to get a call in the middle of the night on Thursday to stay with her two kids while they headed to the hospital. They were home by noon the next day with a beautiful, baby girl ... CRAZY! In Scotland, they let you leave the hospital as early as 6 hours after the baby is born. Nice to be able to recover at home in comfort. Congratulations, Josh and Emily!
This Saturday was Guy Fawkes Night (a.k.a. Fireworks Night or Bonfire Night). We joined several friends for a BBQ, followed by a walk down to the big Bonfire and Fireworks show. This was the first year the kids were not scared at all and really enjoyed themselves. We also got to try sparklers for the first time. Great evening!
For this week's Thursdays evening "Kid's Cook", Joshua and Abigail choose spaghetti and meatballs. We'll see how it goes. I haven't really had them working with raw meat before, but they should enjoy rolling the meat balls.
