Wonderful Weekend!

I have had such a nice weekend! Greg took the kids on Friday morning and left for a family reunion on his mother's side. They drove all the way to Florida. I was only too happy to stay home and enjoy the peace and quiet. Friday I took my time getting ready and straightened up the house. Around 5, CC and I went and had dinner at Macaroni Grill. We had a great time catching up. We haven't seen each other since our big weekend getaway! After dinner, we came back to my house, changed into our PJ's, made hot chocolate, and watched 2 movies. FABULOUS!!! Saturday, we got up and sat around talking and being lazy. Then we got ready and headed out for lunch at our favorite place and then did some Christmas shopping. I hadn't planned to get out in the crowds this weekend, but it wasn't too bad. Mercifully, we didn't go to the mall and I am sure that was a wise choice! Saturday night I just relaxed and did nothing! Today I have been able to get the tree up and ready for the kids to hang ornaments on. I feel refreshed and ready for the week! YAY! ;) Do I have a nice husband or what?

Thanksgiving 2008

Happy Thanksgiving! November has flown by! Noah had a Thanksgiving program at school. He was an Indian and it was precious! He did have a moment of panic when he couldn't see me. I guess I was hidden behind my video camera. ;)
The kids have been out of school this week. It has been wonderful to have no homework and no place to rush off to. I spent Tuesday and Wed. cleaning and getting ready. We hosted the big meal at our home this yr. It went well and everyone seemed to have a good time. Around 4, the women and the kids went to the movies. The kids saw 'Madagascar 2' and the gals saw 'Four Christmases' ( don't waste your $). Still, it was a good day and I ate way too much yummy food. This morning Greg left with the kids to attend his moms family reunion. He offered to go and give me the weekend off. Who am I to say no? I am waiting for my friend C to come pick me up! I am looking forward to a nice relaxing few days. I will even try to get the tree set up so the kids can decorate when they return!!! Here are some pics of the program and our Thanksgiving:
Sad face...couldn't see mommy!

Fall/Halloween Pics 2008

I am so late posting these but I wanted to put them up before I completely forgot. We had a great Fall/Halloween. We had another fun neighborhood party where I may or may not have eaten my weight in chips and dips and homemade caramel corn!!! ;) There were 2 space jumps and the kids got so much candy trick or treating, that I had to give a ton away to teachers!!!! Here are some pics from the day and also Noah's field trip to the pumpkin patch!

The girls were creative this year. Meredith was a hippie and Madeline just asked for black and orange tights and a black hat. I think she was a hip pumpkin girl or something!

Noah at his school party. He is Anakin Skywalker and his buddy is Darth Vader!

Lovely lightsaber that we bribed him with ( soccer goals...remember?)

Noah's field trip...where I may or may not have glanced at my watch 10 times wondering when it would be over. I am so not a "farm" type girl!
