My Weekend in Photos

Friday night was the homecoming parade for our high school. Katie and her Daisy troop walked in the parade and pelted the crowd with threw candy to the crowd.

Saturday morning was my weigh in and then a trip to Goodwill to buy these books for a project I want to make with Katie. While I was gone, Dan shampooed ALL of our carpets. Woo hoo! The house was in disarray for most of the day while we waited for the carpets to dry.

While Jackson napped, Katie went to open gym at her gymnastics school. While she played around, I read Parenting with Love and Logic (thanks for the reminder to reread it again, Gina!) and took COPIOUS notes.

Later, Jackson tried on costumes to see what might fit for Halloween.

Saturday night, we went out to dinner with the kids because Katie got a blackout on her Cycle Break Bingo (and filled up her marble jar).

On the way to dinner, Katie lost her second tooth!

After dinner, we took the kids to Target to poke around. I found these paper bags (white and RED!) for another project I want to make.

Sunday morning was church. More copious notes.

After church, we went to Grandma and Poppy's house for lunch and Jackson's nap. While he napped, Grandma and I worked on making an infinity dress. We didn't quite understand the online directions, so we made a sample one first.

Then we went to the fabric store and came home to make the final version. Here's how it ended up looking on me. The top row shows front views and the bottom row shows back views of the same style.

It was a busy weekend, but also a great one because we got to clean AND spend time with the kids AND shop AND make something creative.

Today is Monday, the start of a new week. Jackson had soccer class (Lord help me!) this morning. Katie is starting another round of Cycle Break Bingo and has already marked three things off her game board. I also gave her a little present this morning: I let her have the Cabbage Patch Doll from my childhood. All of a sudden, my little tomboy is dressing and fawning over a baby doll. Sweet! Here's hoping for a good week!

How do you DO it all? I am so envious at how productive you are! Wow. I'm telling you, you are a domestic goddess for the sheer organization you possess alone.

You are amazing, I love the dress!
Jackson looks so cute in the costumes. i vote for either football player Jackson and Cheerleader Katie or Robin Jackson and Katie as catgirl or batgirl. He looks so cute in the costumes.

I like the Robin costume the best, but how in the world do you have all those costumes? I'm jealous that Jackson will wear them. L is so not into costumes. Maybe next year! Your cycle break bingo is great! Thanks for the shout-out about L & L. I need to buy that book. Can't wait to see all your mystery projects! :)
