What a Wonderful Weekend!

It’s Monday already?? Seriously, what happened to the weekend? I feel like it was Friday yesterday.

Friday night we just hung out and my mom ended up staying over because she was going to Cleveland to get her hair done on Saturday (we used to live up there and she swears this lady she goes to is the only one who knows how to do her hair right). So we decided that my daughter and I would go with her and have a girls’ day! So I get up Saturday morning and start getting ready, and hubby informs me that he had planned on working, so me leaving my son their with him was an inconvenience. Now I know that sounds really horrible, but if you knew my husband, he only works outside of his normal 45 hours per week when he REALLY has to (he’s a partner of a technology firm, so he runs the joint and if work needs to be done, he has to do it). I was just annoyed that he had waited until the last minute to tell me. So I loaded up both kids and off we went to Cleveland. We dropped my mom off and then we headed to a mall that I used to go to as a kid. It had a merry-go-round in it and my daughter was so excited to ride it. Then we actually went in the mall and saw that not only did they have a merry-go-round, they also had those jumping things where they strap you in and you jump on a trampoline and the bungy straps make you go higher. My daughter wanted to do that! I told her that I thought it was only for big people, but then we saw a little baby doing it, so I told her she had to pick between the jumping thing and the merry-go-round. She wanted to jump! So we ate, walked around the mall a little, and then it was time to jump! I wish I had brought my camera, but I didn’t, so I don’t have any pictures of her jumping really high! She was jumping so high it was kind of scaring me! The best part was that my son got to jump too! Remember, he’s only 19 months, but he had an absolute blast! Then we picked my mom back up and did some more shopping and headed home.

Sunday my mom offered to watch the kids while we went and tried a new church so we wouldn’t have to worry about getting them settled into childcare for one service. Our current church is 1.) 25 minutes away from the new house and 2.) has a lot of things going on that we don’t agree with and practices that we don’t feel are in the best interest of the church body as a whole. So we tried this new church and it was OK…I just hate looking for a new church.

Sunday afternoon my daughter and I baked cookies to take over to our new neighbors (and our good friends from our old house) because they have just moved in.

She did such a good job with everything! She helped measure and stir and everything. I love my little girl!

It was so nice being about to walk two houses down and hang out with them again! We are all enjoying our new houses so much and I can’t wait until we get even more settled and into routines so that we can spend more time with each other.

And the new thing that my son (and kind of my daughter) is into is TRAINS!!! We have a train that goes by our house about 5 times per day, and each time he hears the whistle blowing he runs up to us and says “tain, tain”, “dowstairs” (we have a window in our playroom where we can see the train going by, so he wants us to take him down there to see it). So my dad got him some Thomas trains and track sets and he played nonstop all weekend with his trains!

Is it Friday yet????

I hear you on the finding a new church pain. It took us 1 1/2 years to find one we really love. You'll find one you like and it will just feel right.

Your kids are sooo cute! It is always nice to have great neighbors. You don't realize how much you need them until they aren't there.
