Parties and Dinners and Football, Oh My

We had an incredibly busy weekend full of parties, family dinners, fun with friends, and LOTS of football!

On Friday, my sister Andrea watched the kids so Grant and I could attend his work party. The were so excited to go play with their cousins, and were waiting very impatiently while we got ready.

The party was held at a restaurant/pub, and it was nice to go out without the kids for a few hours. Our good friend now works with Grant, so he and his wife were there, too. I was happy to have Amber to talk to! After a few hours, we headed back to my sister's house to pick up the kids. We visited for about an hour before heading home.

On Saturday, Grant had plans with his friends, so I visited my parents. My parents have a huge cat, and Lexie is in love with him. Every time we visit, she insists on getting cat whiskers painted on her face. I hope the I'm-a-cat phase ends soon. ;)

That night, we went to my sister Jen's house for dinner and to watch the Steelers game. The kids love to play with their older cousins! My niece and nephew actually cooked the majority of the meal, because they love to cook. It was delicious! I think I may need to borrow them for a while! After dinner, they took the kids sledding. Yes, I'll definitely need to borrow them!

The Steelers game was rough at first, and hard to watch at times...

...but they really bounced back in the second half! The result? A roomful of happy people!!!

Lexie had a great time bonding with my sister's puppy. Cutest. puppy. ever.

We headed home with a car filled with crying kids, who didn't want to leave their cousins! Luckily, the tears stopped when they were able to dig into the new presents from some of their aunts!

Today, we visited Grant's family. The kids played with PapPap, while the rest of us talked and watched another football game.

Once home, a bunch of friends came over to watch the last game. I had a great time talking with my friend, Amber (thanks for the Star Wars onesie for Nugget!), while the kids played with friends!

Amber and I eventually joined the guys, and I have to say, it was great watching the Jets beat the Pats! Although, we now have to cheer against the Jets, since we play them next weekend!!!

It was a really fun weekend. Thank goodness Dylan doesn't have school tomorrow, because I need to recover! That means, I'll spend the day getting my house back in order!

  5. YES STEELERS! But you know it was a quiet evening in my house after the Patriots lost - hubs was not too happy. I hope we can beat the Jets and make up for the loss we suffered to them at home earlier this season!
