What We Did

We were busy little bees this weekend. Two days is just not even close to long enough to fit in all that we want/need to do.

Friday night Landon had a soccer game at 6:30pm. When we left the weather was quite nice, but around 7pm, I was feeling pretty stupid for not having a sweatshirt for Harper and Dakota. Luckily, Harper kept himself warm by running up and down the field and playing at the park while I held Dakota and kept her snuggled in her blanket.

Saturday morning I woke up with a ton of ideas about how we were going to spend our day, but nothing ended up working out. We hit Costco in the morning and then made it out to the pumpkin patch in the afternoon. Harper was very excited about all the pumpkins, and Landon enjoyed pulling the cart around with all of our stuff in it. We ended up getting several pumpkins, a few gourds, some Indian corn and two cornstalks for the porch. I hung my wreath and we’ve got a festive front entrance going on…I’ll try to get pictures tomorrow.

I got up this morning at 4am to feed Dakota and after lying in bed trying to go back to sleep for half an hour, I ended up just getting up. I got lots of little (quiet) things done around the house while everyone slept. I made a dinner menu and grocery list for the week, started packing up all of Dakota’s clothes that no longer fit, picked up toys lying all over the place etc. Nothing too crazy, but I did love the silence…

After everyone got up and moving, we headed to Sears to look at refrigerators. Ours has been making some weird sounds, and we’d like to replace it before it gives out on us. I found the one I’d like to get, but we decided it was expensive enough to shop around a bit before buying. We went to Best Buy and Lowes, but the price at Sears is the best we’re going to get. Hopefully we’ll get to go back soon to order. After a quick stop at Michaels, we came home and all of us ended up in the backyard. The boys were jumping on the trampoline, Dakota was lying on a blanket watching the clouds, Tony was working on the gazebo and I was planting bulbs (tulips, my favorite) around the trees. It was a perfect afternoon.

We worked out there until it got too chilly, and when we came inside, we ate our dinner of potato soup, bread and salad. It was delicious! I got the soup recipe from Pinterest, and you can get it here. It is super easy and uses only a few ingredients. (I’m talking to you, Mom!)

Well, that’s our weekend in a nutshell, and I’m off to bed. Goodnight.

Sounds like a fabulous weekend! Gotta love Pinterest! I've made several of the recipes from there. Some of them are oldies that I've forgotten about and am glad to make once again.

Have a great week!

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
