David got in on Friday night after work, and we went to visit my grandmother on Saturday morning. My Great-Aunt Mary came over to see Seth, too, and it was really nice. This is Aunt Mary and Seth. Aunt Mary is soo much fun. She is the spunkiest, funniest old lady I've ever met. I aspire to be like her when I am older. She made Seth a Raggedy Andy doll from a pattern a few months ago, and she's 86 years old! She dresses up and tells children stories in the Pumpkin Patch at church every year. She used to be a preschool teacher, my preschool teacher, and when I got married, she gave me recipes for Green Eggs and Ham and homemade playdough. I'm so glad that Seth is getting to know her, too.
Then, it was off to see our friends Ben and Janet. They have been friends of ours since their kids were little, and Andrew is now a Sophomore in college, and Molly's a high school senior. This family has been with us through thick and thin, and they're one of the first Oak Ridge families that David got to know closely. We can talk with them for hours about just about anything, and they have been extremely hospitable with us--always having us over on short notice--even on Christmas day a couple of times! We didn't have long, but we spent a couple of hours just catching up. Then Ben and Janet took turns feeding Seth. It was a blast.
Back in Raleigh now. We had hot dogs on the grill and mac n' cheese for dinner. Super healthy. =) It was another church hunt Sunday. I'll write about that more later; I'm so tired of it, and that wasn't just because I was tired this morning. Time for the season premiere of the Simpsons... =)
