Happy Monday, Friends! This weekend was filled with lots of beautiful weather and NO ILLNESS! hahaha Until Tuesday when whatever we picked up at Church shows up ;)
Friday afternoon, after my staff meeting, Luke and I headed home early for some quiet time before the littles got home. I was having a "moment" because it was one of those times that Luke's little independent side came out and he seemed so big! He got home, took his uniform off (and put it away!), put on his favorite PJS (these awful camo thermals that we got for camo day at school with fuzzy socks and slippers and a backwards hat) and then he was STAAAAARVING (because when is he not?!?!) and decided to make himself a peanut butter, jelly and Nutella sandwich. When did he get this big?!?!?!?!
The best part of him doing all of this for himself?? I laid down for 45 minutes before the little ones got home ;)
Why did I want to lay down??? Because when they got home - this happened ;) #typical
The night calmed down, Gibi stopped by and we spent some sibling time reading.
Saturday morning we met up with Narci to take pictures with Santa!
The kids looked adorable and were all smiles UNTIL.....
None of my kids have EVER cried with Santa - so I feel like this was a long overdue "rite of passage".
These are ones that I snapped wit hmy iPhone - I can't wait to see the high quality hysteria Narci captured :)
After our dramatic rendezvous with Mr. Claus, we headed to Home Depot for the kids workshop.
The boys built, and GG and I wandered.
Then I attempted a picture of my cute boys. Not so much.
Dave had to go in to work before noon, so this happened while I got lunch ready...
We kept it classy with mac and cheese for lunch and after giving this boy about 3 helpings I finally set the pot in front of him to polish off. I'm starting to get glimpses of what it might be like to feed three teenagers/pre-teens and am kind of freaking out. hahaha
After lunch, the boys spent the rest of the day outside. Literally.
Shoeless, dirty, gross and having a BLAST!
Saturday night we snuggled, ate popcorn and watched movies. Home Alone is on repeat at our house.
Sunday morning I attempted to snap a picture of the three before church and this happened...
... I was laughing so hard because G was totally doing it on purpose. hahaha
Luke and Kensington sat together at church and I almost teared up. Love seeing these two, together, on the front row of church! :)
After church G was a little more willing to pose by herself (well, if you don't include the toothbrush) and I was so excited because I LOVE this dress!!! You'll be seeing a lot of it this winter because I think it's precious!!!
Sunday afternoon we spent some time checking out all the ornaments on the tree...
... and then my dad came by to replace our garbage disposal (that conveniently broke on Thanksgiving) and he had more helpers than he had bargained for :)
It was a sweet, semi-quiet weekend and I'm grateful! Next weekend is PACKED and so we soaked up some downtime while we could!
I hope y'all had a restful weekend and are having a fabulous Monday!!! ;)
