High Five for Friday (10.6.17)

1. Last Thursday I had the privilege of spending my entire afternoon with this sweet girl. Baby Aubrey belongs to the incredible nurse at Hallie's elementary school, and I loved getting to cuddle her for three-and-a-half hours. Well, three hours...the last 30 minutes belonged to Hallie.

My fellow PTO Board members and I like to joke that we're a "full service" PTO: we'll raise your money, we'll appreciate your teachers, and we'll watch your babies.

2. I spent Friday night at Messina Hof Winery celebrating a wonderful friend's birthday. We had dinner in the Vintage House Restaurant, and then "retired" to the wine bar for a nightcap. Great friends, great wine...and great Messina Hof Gew├╝rztraminer Raspberry Chipotle sauce. If you ever visit Messina Hof, either order a dish that comes with this sauce or purchase a bottle to take home.

3. While I toasted Nuria, Tom took Will and Hallie to Cavalry (Will's soccer club) Night at the Aggie Soccer Game. Before the game Will and his teammates were introduced to the crowd, and then at halftime they scrimmaged on the field to keep the fans entertained. Oh, and the Aggies won, 2-1 - not bad for a Friday night!
Not sure what's going on with "grumps" there...

4. On Wednesday my sweet boy turned 11 years old. I'll post a bit more about his birthday once all of the celebrating has wrapped; in the meantime, a high five goes out to him for being such a cool kid and to our entire village for helping us raise him into the kind, hard-working fifth grader he is today.

5. Happiness Highlights:
If Hallie sets her backpack down in the mornings, Tux occasionally
uses it as a bed. It slows us down, but it also makes Hallie think that Tux
doesn't want her to leave and that ALWAYS puts a smile on her face.
I have looked for this picture for months - I thought
 it was lost forever - and this week it finally appeared!
On Sunday night Tom and Hallie had a back porch date to watch (as
well as sing along and dance along to) Moana and work on the light suit.
He was finally allowed to bring his bow home!
Oh, my heart.

Happy Friday, Chasing Roots!
