Happy 10th Birthday Meg!

Meg celebrated her first decade on Saturday. She spent to day with one of her quarantine friends Jana. We started off with American pancakes for breakfast, pizza rolls for lunch, and then green mac & cheese for dinner. They also enjoyed the nice weather by playing in the park.

On Sunday Meg spent most of the day playing Minecraft, which was one of her birthday presents.

Happy 12th Birthday Spencer!

Spencer had a great weekend in low key COVID style celebration. Spencer got to celebrate with his friend Andre IRL and other friends met him online. He enjoyed his presents: video games, a capture card for streaming, card games, Oreo ice cream cake, and a football.

Later on Sunday his friend Ella came over. She got him the card game Skyjo, which we have all been enjoying.

Frozen Fog

This weekend has been a mix of unpleasant weather: freezing rain, sleet, snow, and now the pretty but bone chilling frozen fog. Thank goodness for our warm, dry apartment.
