A quiet weekend...
We had a nice quiet weekend. I finished a scarf for Theo. Grace is knitting her own. Now Theo is all geared for Chilean winter; wool hat from the Chilean island of Chiloe, mittens from Peru and matching scarf from Mom. We're just missing our winter coats, but since it doesn't get below freezing here fleeces and rain jackets have sufficed.
We also went to see Cars 2 in Spanish - twice! Dan couldn't get away on Friday, so we saw it and offered to take him back on Saturday. Lo and behold we all understood most of it! Very exciting. We even got most of the jokes (normally very difficult).
Dan has been putting in extra hours at work this weekend. He's had some tricky software puzzles that have left him scratching his head. But we got him out for a movie and he also took time out to crush us in a game of Quiddler (great word game for the family).
Today the kids and I made homemade buttermilk, mixed grain pancakes. Yum. There's no buttermilk in Chile so we had to add little vinegar and cream to our skim milk. The end result was amazing. I'm threatening the kids with never going back to mixes!
Sending our greetings to all.
