Annual Pi Day Party
Every year since getting married, Clayton and I have held an annual Pi day party. My family always celebrated Pi day when I was growing up, and I know that Clayton's family loves it- My SIL had a Pi day themed wedding. The weird thing is, everyone that we invite to these parties is always a first time Pi day celebrator. How can they not have celebrated this wonderful holiday their whole lives?!
We had a Pi recitation contest. Clayton thought he had it in the bag because he could recite 28 digits, but then Austin, our OBGYN friend, memorized 56 digits on the way home from work today!
I was really impressed with the kids who got past 3.14 (most of who are not in the picture because they were playing upstairs in our "secret room", aka attic).
4 pepperoni pizza pies + 1 apple pie + 1 homemade pumpkin pie + 1 chocolate satin pie + 1 razzleberry pie + a giant tub of ice cream = a successful Pi party
Lately Clayton and I have been doing a few house projects. Our first project was removing the sliding glass shower doors. Clayton hated those doors because they limited his elbow room. So we took them out, and replaced them with one of those curved shower curtain rods. Now there's plenty of room, but it's also drafty! Does anyone have a solution for that?
Another one of Clayton's pet peeves is having produce laid out on the counter. It was driving him nuts. So we created the fresh produce wall. Which I think is super cute, as well as functional :). It's kind of in a odd spot, but that wall leads to the kitchen, and the kitchen walls are all cabinets.
I also replaced the old knobs on the cabinet doors of the built ins by the fireplace. It's a small change, but they catch your eye next to all the wood and brick.
Out next project is going to be painting the fireplace. Whoever owned this house before us painted the brick with a brown paint. (face palm) Why would they do that? I can't decide if I want to paint it white or off white, so that project might not happen for a while.
Lastly, our mandatory Abe update: he's doing good. Still growing like a weed, and as cuddly as ever.
