Elise started saying “Amelia” today instead of Ah-meena. Big deal? After hearing her sister’s name one hundred times a day for the last two and a half years and finally getting it right? Yes, yes it is.
Not a whole lot else is going on, except that we are firmly planted in Giants territory for the Patriots-Giants Superbowl showdown. We are off to the neighbor’s house tomorrow bearing mini bacon and cheese frittatas, Cuban sandwiches (have to get the dry rub on the pork), Fish House Punch (30 limes and 15 lemons to juice), and fudge brownies. There are only 4 adults and 3 children attending and that’s only my contribution, so we should be sufficiently fed and liquored by half-time. The girls will be excited and completely wiped out as the final is well past any bedtime they’ve ever had. We will also be bringing jammies.
