Week In Review {Week 47:365 Project}

It was a very busy week for us, filled with Thanksgiving and Dylan's birthday festivities.  I'm going to sleep well tonight!

WEEK 47

NOVEMBER 18th

Dylan and I spent half the night in the ER and didn't get home until 4 AM.  We had a forced stay-at-home-all-day kind of day because of that.

NOVEMBER 19th

Back to school for the big kids.  At least it was just a 3-day week! I picked Lexie and my friend's son up from Kindergarten, then stopped by her house on the way home.  We ended up eating lunch with them before stopping at the grocery store.  The rest of the day was spent at home.

That morning, after the big kids went to school, I went to Dylan's school to have a Thanksgiving Feast with Dylan and his class.  It was a really fun event, and I loved spending time with my boy.  After picking Lexie up from school, we went to the library, then met my best friend and her boys at the park to play for a bit.  The rest of the evening was spent at home.

After Lexie got home from school, we had lunch and I took her to gymnastics.  When Dylan got home from school, we took him out to eat for his early birthday dinner.  He chose Long John Silver's.  After eating dinner, we stopped by Target, then went to a friend's house to hang out because the kids were off school the next day. While we were there, we had cupcakes and sang to Dylan. We came home late, and stayed up even later, wrapping Dylan's gifts, blowing up balloons, and putting up birthday decorations.

NOVEMBER 22nd

Happy 8th Birthday to my sweet boy!!!  He woke up bright and early, ready to open his presents.  He was thrilled with all his gifts!  That morning, we watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade while I helped Dylan build one of his birthday gifts.  We went to an early dinner at Grant's Grandma's house, then stopped by my sister's house for a bit to see my family, and ended the evening at Grant's Nannie's house for dessert.  It was a busy day!  I was feeling so sentimental over the fact that my boy is now 8! It was a special day:  Thanksgiving and celebrating the little man I love the most, all in one day!

NOVEMBER 23rd


The kids and I went to my parent's house for the afternoon to visit with them.  That evening, my mom, Lexie, and I went shopping. I had to get all the party supplies for Dylan's birthday party AND grocery shop.  When we came out of the store, the temperature had dropped 30 degrees and it was snowing!  After having dinner with my parents, we returned home and spent the evening preparing food and supplies for Dylan's birthday party, and loading up the SUV.

NOVEMBER 24th


Party Day!  We got to the party location at noon and worked quickly to set up.  Dylan had a great party, despite half the guest list not being able to make it at the last minutes.  He got awesome gifts and had so much fun!  We quickly cleaned up after the party, and took everything home.  Some of the party guests returned to our house later that evening.  We ended up having an unplanned slumber party.  Originally, my great niece was supposed to spend the night with Lexie and Dylan's friend was supposed to spend the night with him.  In addition to my 3 kids, we ended up with 4 extra kids spending the night.  It was noisy and fun...and they were up SUPER late.  Exactly what a slumber party is all about.  I'm so glad my kids are building these wonderful memories!
