We Hit the Jackpot

Some friends who are expecting their first baby are stopping by this weekend to visit and pick up some of the gear that Buster has outgrown. I’m always a little surprised at how happy people are to get our old baby things, but tonight the tables were turned and I was reminded why. Timing is everything.

We ran a dance rehearsal to prepare for our friends’ wedding, and along with having a lovely mini reunion with friends, we were the recipients of the motherlode of hand-me-down books that were no longer wanted by another dancer’s teenaged sons.

If the first picture wasn’t clear enough, let’s look at some of them more closely.

Q-ster is going to be jumping up and down when he sees these! SwingDaddy and I have decided it would be wise to ration the Star Wars hoard and reveal them one per week.

Little K glanced over at my screen as I scrolled down to the Star Wars closeup and I had to quickly close the screen. LOL! "Did I see Star Wars, mommy?" GOSH that kid is quick! LOL!

Wow... what a jackpot, indeed! Have a fantastic weekend. I'm so sorry we can't get together today. I fell asleep on my projects at 2a and woke up at 4a to try to catch up... so exhausted!
