Friday marked Erin’s first dance….her Girl Scout troop had a Father Daughter dance. They were supposed to dress up like their favorite holiday, so they dressed for Dr. Seuss Day…..as Thing 1 & Thing 2. They didn’t win any awards, but Erin had a great time and that’s all that matters.

Saturday I spent a lovely day with my sister. We stumbled into a “cafe” in Gardner that felt like we’d walked right into 1952, and had pie and coffee for breakfast. It was nice to hang out with her.

Sunday marked an annual cookie exchange with some of my favorite friends….Shawn, Kelly, Kerry & Dana came with cookies and gifts and we ate, laughed and just enjoyed each other’s company. We missed Maricar, though :( I think that she was there in spirit!

My contribution to the cookie exchange: chocolate peppermint cookies:

Yum :)
