Another Weekend Gone...

We had yet another insanely busy weekend. I'm used to them by now!

On Saturday, we went to a combined birthday party for these three kids:


As usual, we had fun with our friends!

After the party, we came home and had a late nap. We had to go somewhere in the evening, and I knew it was going to be a late night, so I wanted the kids to take a nap. Grant and I decided to take a nap, too! It was so strange to fall asleep when it was still light out, and wake up an hour later, when it was dark!

We spent the evening at my sister's house with her family, another sister and her son, and a friend. We had a great time playing Apples to Apples while the kids entertained us with their singing and dancing!


It was, indeed, a late night. Lexie allowed me to sleep in until 10:15 this morning, while Dylan slept until after noon!

We went over to Nannie's house today to have lunch and watch the playoff games. Afterward, we headed to another sister's house for our final family Christmas party!

My brother and his family moved about an hour and a half away, so we don't get to see them as much as we used to. We didn't get to see them on Christmas, and they ended up being snowed in two weeks ago for our first Christmas party. It was so wonderful to see my brother, his wife, and their five kids!

The kids snuggled with their Papa and cousin, Emily. Emily is just 17 months, and she is HUGE! I should mention that my brother is 6'6"! Poor Lexie was in a bad mood all weekend. She has been clinging to me since Saturday morning.


We had a yummy dinner, and then exchanged presents with my brother and his family. This is terrible, but we actually haven't seen them in a few months, so we had to exchange some birthday presents as well. We really miss them!


We left with two shopping bags full of presents. One of my sisters bought Dylan and Lexie a ton of art supplies, so we're going to keep busy with projects this week!

Lexie fell asleep on the way home, so I put her to bed. Dylan immediately put on his new robe, grabbed the new window markers, and began decorating the living room windows! They are in need of a good cleaning, anyway, thanks to my dog rubbing her nose all over them! ;)


I'm thinking I better hide them.

Dylan is off of school tomorrow, and we are staying home ALL day! I'm really looking forward to it!


  1. Lucky. My oldest is off school and i have a workshop. Boo!
