Weekend Recap - Super Edition

Friday started with an extra cute (and pensive) Happy Morning picture :)

After school Mason got to go with his friends to Cosmic jump.  It was his first time to get picked up in carpool and ride with someone other than me, Dave or my parents.

 I wrapped things up at school and got to hang out for the last hour or so.  Because our school gets out early on Fridays they had the entire place to themselves!

Cutest group ever!!!

Mason LOVES Jack and Ben's big sister and she is the sweetest!!!

 It might have been a good playdate if... :)

Friday night we got home and had more pizza because...

Saturday morning Griffin and I headed to dance with my mom...

... and when we got home she HAD to have cereal and toast.  Dance class will do that to a girl!

She is still as happy-go-lucky as ever, but she has her "threenager" moments as well.  She was helping Dave empty the dishwasher and she wanted to lay the clean plates out on the floor, Dave asked her not to lay the plates out and she stood there and dramatically cried with her eyes closed for at least 5 minutes.

Luke's bestie Lincoln hung out with us for the day and the boys played outside until it was time to go to a birthday party...

While the boys partied, GG and I watched a Sofia before she took a nap.

Jack Bauer got in on the snuggles ;)

After the party the big boys played out back with Legos, Dave went in to work and I had some snuggle time with this guy ;)

After an unfortunate run-in with a glass of iced tea it was time for fresh clothes and a trip to the mailbox with me (spoiler alert - the mailbox trip was a total ploy so I could get him to cooperate for a cute pic in his Valentine's shirt)

Still feeling a little left out by the big boys, Mason and I whipped up some brownies.

And he "may" have licked the spatula :)

Griffin woke up from her nap and insisted on washing the dishes.  Well, if you insist ;)

If you look closely you can see the water spraying of the plate onto her dress. hahaha

We ended the night with bubble baths and brushing.

After church, Mason and I worked on his Q-U poster for the wedding on Friday.  He had LOTS of opinions which I loved.  I also loved that that his queen is a brunette :)


(so judging by the comments, SEVERAL of y'all thought I might have socks on in the picture below... HECK NO!!!  Do I wear some out there things... sure.  Do I wear socks with sandals... no.  The mere fact that you thought I might be wearing socks with sandals has me questioning every outfit I've ever worn. hahaha  #kidding)

The sandals are the Aurora Espadrille by Free People - they're last season and I can't find them in stock anywhere, but I'll keep looking.

... and then it was time for queso!!!

Dice up 32 oz of velveeta and throw it in the crock pot with 8 oz of cream cheese, a can of rotel and a can of cream of mushroom soup.  Brown 1 lb of meat (sausage or ground beef... I use 1/2 of each) and add that in once everything is melted. 

There was absolutely nothing healthy about our meal on Sunday night.  As it should be.  The mini corn dogs were Mason's addition - that kid is SMART!

And just in case we hadn't taken in enough calories, we finished it off with brownies and Blue Bell (and caramel sauce).  

YAY for super Bowl!  YAY for ridiculous amounts of unhealthy food!  #amen

And this is out of order, but a random shot from Sunday afternoon - hahaha

We had a fantastic weekend full of great weather and family time. We're ready for a week of LOOOOVE and I'm excited to share a few last minute heart ideas :)

Happy Monday, friends!!!
