Weekend In Review

What a fun and busy weekend for the Hunters. On Friday, we met up with the Pfeiffers and the Williams for a grown-up night out. Mark's dad was kind enough to watch both Kennedy and Emily so we could all enjoy a baby-free evening. Thankfully Kennedy is a good little sleeper so she snoozed and didn't make a peep the whole night. We had a delicious dinner and drinks on the patio at Patrizios in Highland Park Village. That's right, the patio, in December. Despite my earlier rants about the weather in Dallas (see posts ranging from June-September), I was quite happy to be sitting outside under all the Christmas lights. Santa even made a little visit to our table towards the end of the night.

On Saturday, Greg and Kennedy enjoyed some quality father-daughter time while I was able to get out and get my hairs done and my nails did. Greg's parents flew in on Saturday to spend some time with Kennedy, so we let them keep her for the evening so we could start Christmas shopping. Yes, start our shopping. We powered through Northpark mall and got about two thirds of the shopping finished. Just a few more things to pick up this week before we head to NM.

Today we had the Hinckles and Jill over for some hot chocolate, cookies and Christmas/Hanukkah presents galore. Jill was the hero of the party, turning the hot chocolate into Irish hot chocolate, with the addition of the Bailey's. I got a mini-cupcake maker, it looks like a pink Gorge Foreman Grill (remember that craze?) and makes mini-cupcakes in 7 minutes! Jill got a similar machine but the output is donuts. And the Hinckles took home a new margarita set with margarita mix. Audrey and Kennedy played really cute together and posed for a quick photo.

I feel like we have a million things to do before we leave town, but I am so excited that Greg and I get to celebrate Christmas with Kennedy in both ABQ and Midland in the next two weeks.
