Creating New Traditions

As 2009 rolls in, so begins a couple new things we're starting to do.

1. Weekends in Tecumseh. It's great for them, it's great for us and it's a lot of fun for Elliot. Grandma Cindy and Grandpa Jim get to pick a weekend every few months to have Elliot all to themselves.

This was the first one. So what big plans did Fred and I have? To folks w/o kids it may sound lame, but we have been having fun without a little one in tow. Yesterday we went to the NU/Mizzou basketball game (Go 'skers!) and then out to dinner with Mike and Kelly. This morning I got to sleep in until 9... I can't remember the last time that happened. And - I've never been so excited to put laundry away without someone throwing undies and socks all over the house!

2. Date nights. Over dinner last night we finalized our date night plan for 2009. First Friday of each month Mike and Kelly get to go out and the third Friday we get to go out. Lucky for us that Nate and Elliot get along splendidly so they'll also benefit from this arrangement.

Kind of boring post, I know. Sorry about that.
