What a fabulous "nothing" weekend, that turned out to be a great one!
  • An long-overdue lunch with my friend Allyson
  • Mild weather with kids playing outside for hours
  • A spontaneous afternoon date with Mike to the hardware store and gas station for a fountain rootbeer, a once a month indulgence (the rootbeer not the hardware store)
  • A frantic phone call from Melanie with her laughing her head off telling me we were on the home page of KSL all Friday afternoon and evening. You can read it HERE.
  • Take-out Cafe Rio with our good friends, Kari and Kellen.
  • A highlight of our half birthday tradition on Babble. You can read it HERE.
  • Our typical one hour "cleaning hour" on Saturday morning that dragged into almost 4 hours with Mike vacuming, organizing, and cleaning behind shelves and under couches.
  • Joshua and Drew being invited to sleep over at Grandma and Grandpa's house!!!!!!!!!!! The 22 hours they were gone our house stayed calm, peaceful, and clean! 
  • Dinner with just Mike, me and the older three kids at one of my all time favorite restaurants (Spaghetti Factory). I hadn't eaten there for over two years, and as I remembered, it did not disappoint.
  • Church meetings, specifically Sacrament Meeting without a two year old and four year old were pure bliss! Not to mention I didn't have to visit the restrooms once with those pea-sized bladder children of mine not with me. (Grandma on the other hand at her church with said two and four year olds visited it at least three times...)
  • Sunday dinner with Grandma and Grandpa with a bonus slide show and joke session.
  • A Superbowl party hosted by my BFF's son. And me who knows nor CARES anything about football won the prize for predicting the EXACT score. (Even though I switched the teams around.)
  • Megan coming into our room at 9:30pm Sunday night almost in a panic that she completely forgot to memorize a poem that was due Monday morning. Oh wait--that wasn't a good part of the weekend. But the fact we sent her out of our room to deal with her own natural consequence and this morning she recited it perfectly for us, was.
  • Oh and we can't forget the fact Megan wanted to pretend it was the 1980's and Drew was a work-out instructor and dressed him in a doll outfit of Ellie's.

That pretty much sums up our weekend around here. It may seem like nothing much, but it was everything.

"enjoy the little things in life, for one day you'll look back and realize they were the big things."

Happy Monday!
