Weekend's Almost Gone :(

Well, it's been an exciting weekend, and now it's almost over.

On Sat. my dad hired PI and I for our first ever professional photo shoot. He wanted photos of his band for cover art, slide shows, etc. so we went down to a park and took photos of them in various poses on trees, rocks, bridges, etc. It was fun and exciting and, combined w/ wedding present gift certificates, we managed to obtain a proper travel case for our camera gear! No more being scared of airline attendants throwing the camera gear around or crushing the camera when we're going on car trips!

Sat. was also the patronal feast at church, so we sang at that but couldn't afford dinner, so we didn't stay.

Sun. was service as usual. They're not going well. There are too many changes that seem to be happening 'cause the place needs change and for no other reason, and I don't like most of them. At least the choir seems to be looking up. The new guy is great :)

After service PI and I went to the Shoe Museum 'cause we had a free pass and he's never been. We didn't really have time today 'cause I'm supposed to be studying for a ridiculous exam, but the pass runs out Oct. 31 and it was a nice walk!

The only real downer this weekend (apart from the studying) is that I've put my back out and am in rather a lot of pain. Hopefully that goes away soon.

...and PI found this video....I want lessons in graphic design or something!

Philip Pullman!

Last night PI, KL, and I went to see Philip Pullman give a lecture, answer questions, and sign books! If there's anyone out there who hasn't read The Golden Compass, you should. It's fantastic! I didn't get to talk to any of the others, but there were a LOT of very exciting authors and illustrators at the talk. Jean Little, Kit Pearson, Barbara Reid, Kenneth Oppel...and more! I really wish I'd had the money for the rest of the conference so that I could talk to them all, but no such luck...and no time either :( Maybe some of them will be at OLA this year. Oppel was last year.

Cat Walk

Last night, PI took 5 for his first walk outside on the harness. He was terrified and didn't do much walking....but as of this morning our crazy cat has gone even crazier! He has spent most of the morning stalking us through the shower curtain, which we might have to replace. PI got a little close and almost lost a bit of him I'd rather he kept.

Now that Mommy and Daddy have had the chance to spread to news a bit, I am free to announce fair...


They are happy and healthy and everyone is doing well...if a bit sleep deprived.

Wedding Photos

The photographer has sent us a web-version of the wedding photos. I apologize to anyone who didn't get the link by mail, but I figured I'd put it here as it's less easy to lose. It doesn't always load the first time, just refresh if that happens.

Order photos by clicking on the print button.
I think it's only up for a month or so.

Waiting for Twins

We're still waiting for the twins to arrive and are getting very excited. They are now 6 lbs, 3 oz and 6 lbs, 9 oz which is really big for twins! Average weight is 5 lbs, 3 oz. 12 Days left to go until they're taken out regardless of what they think :D

Since the last post, we've been to a concert by one of Bear's coaches from last year, thrown a party, made our own pasta and 3 sauces including pesto (which was very exciting), picked up more wedding presents, had dinner with IT.2, been to a concert put on by PM, MY, SS, and co. which we enjoyed very much, spent some time at Nuit Blanche, started stripping the varnish off a shelf at BR's that is going to become our bar, had lunch with high school teachers, finished a paper, started 2 more, and gotten our wedding photos back from the photographer (they're excellent :D)
