The End of Epiphany

The season of Epiphany is ending today and with it our long weekend.  We won't have another lengthy time off until Easter.  But, at least that's only 6 weeks away!!  And it will be April then!

Saturday, we went to the mall and bought some new PJ's for Aidan. . .size 7!!  They are big, but they will fit him next fall.  I cleaned out all the 5's from his drawer because they are just too small.  I also bought one new pair of jeans and some patches for his old ones.  Now to finish cleaning out the things he has out grown or worn out!!  The night time growing pains continue, although he hasn't grown since New Years.  But, I am sure that the next growth spurt is just around the corner!

I took Aidan up to the Ice House on Sunday afternoon.  Pat had to work the 3-11 shift, so we thought we would go and play a bit.  But, he didn't want to skate when we got there!  All he wanted to do was watch the bigger boys play hockey--tournaments were going on on the other rink.  Actually, it was probably not a bad thing.  The Free Skate was really packed so it would have bene difficult to move and the ice was probably chewed up.

Yesterday, I took Aidan to a birthday party at Monkey Joes.  It was in Winchester. . .nearly an hour's drive!!  I don't typically go to Winchester.  In fact, I rarely go there.  I probably haven't been there for a couple of years.  Aidan had fun though.  It was one of those bouncy places and he loves those!!!

They also had an air hockey table.  Aidan and I decided we gotta get us one of those!! 

After the party, I got Aidan some lunch at Chic-fil-a and then headed back toward Leesburg.  We had pre-purchased tickets to go see The Secret World of Arriety and were meeting one of Aidan's school friends at the theatre.  Great movie!!!  We loved it!!  On the way back out of the theatre, Aidan said he wants to see it again!!  : )  The pre-views were really good too.  There were a couple I know we'll be going to. . .particularly Madagascar 3 which comes out this summer!!

After that we headed home, where Daddy was already.  We ate out, but I was able to get things going to tonights chicken and sausage jambolaya.  All I have to do is make the rice.  (Pat doesn't like pancakes for dinner). 

And that's about all that's going on with us.  Back to the routine today, Ash Wednesday services tomorrow and Aidan's hockey on Saturday.  Let's not talk about the Caps, okay?  I think they have a few bad habits to give up for Lent. . .

Play dates to be scheduled with hopes for some nice weather coming and the Family Room floor installation also to be scheduled.  Fun times ahead!!!
