Catching up in photos

Being that it's my first week at home with Cate, you'd think I could have blogged earlier. Yeah, not so much. In fact, I started this post Monday and now it's Tuesday morning and I'm just returning to it.

First, I had to turn in my key at work because when I finished Friday evening, everybody else was gone. So I had to lock the door behind myself. Then it was to the grocery. Then home to eat lunch and for Cate to finish her nap she started in Kroger. Then back out to Wal-Mart and the Post Office.

Then when Cate napped again I did get to go through my pictures from the weekend.

First, it was Ethne's second birthday party. That's Greg's brother's daughter for any of you new readers.

Ethne definitely was the princess of the party.

And Cate enjoyed sitting with her great-grandma. (The plastic beaded necklaces were party favors. Appropriate for a princess.)

Then Saturday night Cate got dressed up for the Murray State football game.

It got pleasantly cool out, so Cate had to bundle up in this adorable sweater.

Then Sunday we exposed Cate to more sporing events. This time the St. Louis Cardinals. While a win would have been more enjoyable, the weather was beautiful and we had a good time.

Luke demonstrated the lucky Twizzlers. They weren't exactly lucky, but they tasted good, as Luke can attest!

We took a mini-bus of friends up there, and Cate even wanted to try driving. She and Luke also enjoyed some more time together. Luke affectionately calls her "Date" because that K sound is too much trouble for his 17-month-old mind.

While I was cleaning off my camera card, I realized I still hadn't posted pictures from our trip to Kentucky Lake with Greg's family the weekend before this past one. So, here are some shots from our time there. Despite the frequent rain, we enjoyed ourselves.

Ethne just liked the outfit that went along with being at the lake!

Cate kept herself occupied by chewing.


  1. Welcome to the world of stay-at-home-mothering! I'm looking forward to a weekly column on your blog about the adjustment :) On my desk by Friday at noon. You'll have to do your own proof-reading and editing, though... Or, how about a weekly advice column where other working moms and sahm's can write in their questions. We could call it "Kristin Listens" :)

    Have a wonderful week with Cate!
    Love, laura

  2. Oh my goodness it looks so fun! I can't wait til next summer. ;)
