We had a wonderful weekend! The Buddy Walk was good fun, the kids all watched Hotel for Dogs (Hannah's choice), Kate had her last day of work at Starbucks (and Hannah got to go in and pretend to be an employee!), plus, we had Thanksgiving!!
We always take a break between dinner and dessert...so last night Hannah got into her fancy American Girl nightgown before we sat down for pumpkin pie. As usual, the mischief began...noisy noisy singing glasses!
When I was about 8 years old, our family never went out to restaurants. To celebrate my mom's first paycheck from her new job, they took us out to a very fancy restaurant. My Dad took that opportunity to teach the three children how to test for good crystal. It's a nice little parlor trick, but it's probably not so welcome at a snooty restaurant! Make sure you hold the base of the stemware with one hand, while you steadily run your wet finger along the rim of the glass.
Addendum: That didn't take very long! Someone from Marina, CA (a new reader, I think) was #10,000 last night at 2:11 a.m. Eastern Time.
