Well folks - things are back to normal at my house. I'm finally feeling "caught up" a bit and enjoyed a busy, but fun weekend with my crazy crew.
Friday morning everyone was up bright and early and wanted to walk me and Luke out to the van. A small fight broke out in the driveway over a soccer ball - but that's nothing out of the ordinary :)
About 5 seconds later all was well and they were giving me sweet kisses through the car window. Also - please note Mason's disgusted face at Griffin snuggling against his cheek.
See for yourself...
I told y'all! I have my work cut out for me :)
Haha stopped by to read bedtime stories and after about an hour of "reading" I had to go in and break up the party. And by party, I mean sleepover. :)
And yes.... Mason is the sweatiest sleeper there ever was. God bless his poor future wife. hahaha
Saturday morning the boys were up and playing before 8 a.m. A sweet, sweet co-worker of mine passes along toys that her three boys have outgrown with the promise that my boys will put them to good use (ala Toy Story 3 - hehehe). We LOVE getting Boese hand-me-downs!
While browsing the DVDs I came across this one and was instantly transported back to 1994. :) I read EVERY SINGLE baby sitters club book and used to get sooooooooo excited when the Super Specials would come out. I can remember spending all my money on books and then having them done by that night. I was also a big Saddle Club fan as well :)
He did such a great job we decided to stop for a donut (and yes - he brought his rock and stick in to the donut shop).
He got a giant blue balloon and was quite pleased with himself. It was sweet one-on-one time with my precious middle :)
After haircuts it was home for lunch and naps. After naps Mason asked to get in GG's crib with her :)
These leggings are like "thermal" materian and are so stinkin' cute!!! They're from the latest Matilda Jane release and if you're interested in ordering some I'll have more info later this week (new release and trunk show next week!!!)
Saturday night my parents and I took the kids to the pool to swim and eat dinner and I took ZERO pictures. Shocking, right??? We got home right around bedtime and everyone was OUT like a light within 30 minutes of walking in the door. It was awesome.
Sunday morning GG was feeling extra snuggly... which was sweet since I was feeling sentimental about all my babies moving up a classroom during promotion Sunday at church. :)
Sunday afternoon I worked on school and Slightly Askew projects and then got busy in the kitchen. I felt super overwhelmed and unproductive last week and it was great to get back to some sense of normal and cook for my crew. While I cooked and prepped and baked, GG ran around like a total crazy...
Luke helped me make cookies and Mason (who is wearing underwear - I promise!) helped me prep my pasta salad for the week.
Griffin was cute in her high chair...
... and then it was early to bed for everyone!
After bedtime my kitchen looked like this....
... the aftermath of baking cookies, prepping lunches for me and Luke for the week, making enchiladas and cleaning out the fridge. #keepinitreal
It was a mess, but it was soooooooooooo worth it :)
I am feeling so much better about this week (all our laundry is put away!!!) and I'm excited to share my Favorite Things Under $10 with y'all tomorrow...
... and then host the August Recipe Club on Wednesday!
Get your link-up fingers ready, ladies!!!
