Hi family! Latest Stevens scoop:
Had fun Friday night with the Girl Scout troop. The annual holiday sleepover was at our house this year. The girls ate pasta, played Apples to Apples, and watched Prince Caspian. I was reminded how much I disliked the way the writers mangled the original story. But most of the girls were just focused on how gorgeous Prince Caspian was. Anyway, they had fun exchanging Secret Sister gifts on a neon theme (don't ask me why neon). Herb thought it was funny coming down for breakfast the next morning to see the bodies strewn all over the floor.
Brett's on a couple of basketball teams this year (nothing terribly serious), so he's getting some exercise. His team ended up winning this weekend's tournament, so he sent a hilarious pic/sound text to my phone and Kelly's, where he's singing "We Are the Champions." He doesn't see a lot of playing time, but he's improving.
I hosted a neighborhood cookie swap today, which was small but fun. Only six other ladies participated this year, but everyone's cookies were tasty, and we had a good time talking for a couple of hours. We're still so amazed at the friendliness of this neighborhood compared with our old one only a few miles away. I put some of the cookies away in the freezer - might even bring them to Pittsburgh if they survive that long.
Final exams start tomorrow. I'll be a correcting maniac for one more week, then it's break time. Now it's time to get back to the pile of final marketing plans stacked up on the dining room table. 5 down, 22 more to go!
