My Weekend Shenanigans

Here's how it went........

Friday Night
I had a Girls Night In with:
my 2 FAVORITE preschoolers!

Pictures Lowdown
***Kayla said: I'm a flower
***Jamie said: I'm the sun
***We made Build Your Pizza {Mommy fail: I forgot to spray the aluminum foil with Pam...they stuck}
***What's a girls night without a silly-face pic?
***We made strawberry cupcakes...with the help of Pillsbury {Mommy fail: they stuck to the paper}
***I knew I was going over my calories today after I finished my lunch {I was not happy about it!}
***We were jammin' out to Kids Bop on my iPod while cooking & eating
***We watched Toy Story 3 before bedtime {I let them stay up a little later...& reset their "Okay to Wake Monkey Clocks"}
***...5 minutes before we were going to bed, Jamie would not sit still on the couch & she slid off & kissed the concrete floor. Her lip did a little bleeding & she got some relief from her cold ouchie bear wrapped in a pink {upon her request} wash cloth. My monkey girl does not listen & sometimes needs the natural consequences for a lesson to truly sink in.
***Since they haven't gotten to have a sleep together in a long time, I let them....they were excited!
This is oh SO true:
Picture Lowdown of Things We Did
***We woke up with a dusting of snow on the ground AND it snowed those big, pretty flakes off & on all day, but nothing really stuck
***With a little snow on the ground & with it falling from the sky, we decided to enjoy the warmth of the firepalce
***Jamie spent most of the morning in her tutu on & pink wash cloth in hand {pretending it was a flower & asking everyone to smell it}
***When the hubs/daddy got home from his Friday-Saturday Father-Son Trip, the fur~babies were so excited to see him they sat on top of each other {Abby, the older/white one, can't stand Tessie, the younger/ black & white one. So for them to sit like this is really something}
***While I cooked dinner, Jamie traced one of her fairies like in Tinker Bell & the Great Fairy Rescue
***Did you see that, I cooked dinner: Baked Dijon Vidalia Onion Pork Chops, Baby Carrots with Ranch, Shells & Cheese, & Broccoli with Cheese...& it was actually good {Although I love to cook, I'm not the usual cook so it's kindof nice when I produce something everyone actually wants to eat}
***Sweet Kayla was pretending to make things for us on her TV tray: cookies, prince & princess crowns, & necklaces were just a few of the things we received
***Kayla loves being read to {Jamie does too, but Kayla is really enjoying having chapter books read to her each night}
***I think the dogs were really comfortable & ready for bed while the hubs & I watched Ray {such a good movie!}

Picture Lowdown of What We Saw
***Jamie got to pick the 1st show we watched & it was just one of their cartoons on TV.....Kayla's turn = The Bee Movie
***After the girls each had a turn, Mommy had a turn & since the girls didn't want to join me, I did xBox Zumba. Let me tell ya, this think kicked my booty! I was only able to do 12 minutes of the 20 minute workout. It was an AWESOME workout & I can't wait to do more of it!!!
***Back to Jamie's turn for TV: it was a movie, but I forgot to take a picture & now can't remember. We ate while they watched it & then it was time for their naps. I decided to relax & wore my comfy socks, watching: Memphis Tiger Basketball & then Catch Me if You Can
***After nap, it was Kayla's turn to pick TV: Brave {we love this movie!}
***And while I cooked lunch & dinner, I of course was rockin out my iPod {I heart music! = understatement!}
A day of Fellowship, Family, & Friends!!!!! This got it's own blog post & you can see ALL the pictures from the day HERE, but here are the highlights:
 Picture Lowdown
***We got all dolled up & headed to Sunday School & Church
***Gree & Poppie met us at Church & then we all went to Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch {LOVE me some wings!}
***One of my BFFs (Jessica) & her boyfriend met us for lunch & Kolby got the Bestie Stamp of Approval ;-)
***I got 30 minutes of uninterrupted ALONE time at Target {if you have children, you TOTALLY understand what a luxury this is}
***Jessica & I went to Paint a Piece to paint that platter saying "Bless this Home"
***I don't draw a decent stick man paint & I'm SO THANKFUL they took me through the process step-by-step considering how it started
***I worked hard painting!
***My almost finished product {they will add the phrase all pretty & fire it to make it look shiny}
***We had so much fun in our Dish, Dine, & Wine class!!!! I can't wait to do it again!!!!

    I need one of these monkey clocks you speak of. My kiddos have gotten up at 6ish the last two mornings in a row. Not Okay!

    1. Thank you!!!!! God has truly blessed us with them!!!!

      The Monkey Okay to Wake/Get Up clocks are AWESOME!!!! I think I found them on Amazon. I'm sure you can get them at a store or 2 (maybe Knowledge Tree). But to get them by when I wanted them (knowing I wouldn't be heading to the big town), I ordered them.

      Love ya & thanks for all your help with my blogging!!!!!
