Sugar shack season is one of my favorite times of the year. I have been telling Alice, for the past few weeks, that she was not allowed to come out today because I had to get my yearly fix of fat and sugar. And I did...I think that I gained an extra 5 lbs in one meal!!!
For the occasion, our "group" had to wear checkered shirts. Dan suggested that I take one of his and pimp it up a bit. Let me tell you that the staff was pretty impressed with my big belly!
This weekend, I also learned that Dan had a childhood! When we moved in together, he didn't have any objects from when he was a kid. So I got very excited when, while visiting us, his mother gave him back his baby quilt (that she made by hand) and his stuffed bear.
The quilt will be installed, as art, on a wall in the nursery. As for the bear, that we named Bobo after Mr. Burns childhood teddy bear in The Simpsons, it now lives on Dan's bedside table!
