Weekend Update

This weekend began on Friday with Aunt Michelle and Uncle Jake coming in town to take Daniel on his first excursion to Chuck E. Cheese. I wish I had brought my camera, but I'm afraid the only picture I would have gotten was one of wide-eyed amazement. When we first walked in, Daniel didn't know what to think. Games and music and pizza and candy and prizes.... He got to play a few games while waiting for the pizza to come, then ate some pizza and played some more. He didn't want to leave, but he got excited when it was time to turn in his tickets for prizes. He ended up with two cars, an inflatable hammer, and 8 mini Tootsie Pops. Let's just say he was in heaven! And to top it all off, Aunt Michelle and Uncle Jake got him a new train too!!

On Saturday, Adam was busy studying for the bar, so Daniel and I stayed home to clean. I am definitely in nesting mode and desperately trying to get things organized. I cleaned out the cabinet where I kept my crafting supplies and found some things I had completely forgotten about.

We then hauled the cabinet to the curb (it was cheap and falling apart), then we proceeded to rearrange the living room and take the big green chair and ottoman out of Daniel's room. I didn't have the forethought to take a before picture, so those of you who don't know what it looked like before, sorry. But I am liking the new arrangment. I like to change things up every now and then...it is therepeutic for me. Next task: Daniel's room.
Our Sunday was nice and quiet. We had a good day at church, and while Daniel was napping, Adam and watched a movie. Very relaxing.

And yesterday, I decided to tackle cleaning out my closet. I was halfway finished (I had everything taken out, just had to go through it and put it back in) when the rod holding all of Adam's clothes fell and dumped ALL of his clothes onto the floor of the closet! I had to call Adam (in the middle of his studying) to pick up the part we needed to fix it so I could put everything back. In the middle of all this, I could only think, "Why do I bother??" Anyway, I got it all sorted and put away, and now I have 3 garbage bags waiting to be hauled to Goodwill.

And Daniel has a newfound talent....coloring on things he shouldn't.

On another note...World Market, oh how I love you! Raspberry syrup for my lemonade and Baci for my tummy!!
