This morning I thought I woke up before everyone, but walking past the 8-year-old’s room I found this.
The Rainbow Loom has taken over his life since getting it on Friday.
Then I headed downstairs to go out for a run and found this.
She has no shame.
I ran about 3.5 miles on a very foggy morning. It was such a great way to start the day.
When I got back the 8-year-old was making the 2-year-old a necklace.
And soon I found myself weaving a fishtail while listening to “What Does the Fox Say.”
I had to put a stop to the madness and get the laundry going.
I decided to make a batch plain to use throughout the week while the kids had a Nerf/light saber battle.
Then I piled everyone in the car and we headed to some local trails.
There’s a fun tunnel on the trail we picked.
And we didn’t get far before the rock throwing began.
It was a beautiful November day.
And I’m glad I got these two out to enjoy it.
I got them home and made them lunch…
…before heading out to meet a friend. We had a date to try a new Vietnamese place in my neighborhood.
When I got home I kept the laundry going, made ANOTHER loom bracelet and started cooking.
In addition to the quinoa I wanted to roast some butternut squash for the week and make a cranberry apple compote for the pork chops I was making for dinner.
While everything cooked I gave The Husband a much needed haircut.
It’s a long story but I’ve been cutting his hair since college.
Soon my house was filled with the glorious smell of roasted squash.
I put the 8-year-old on folding duty and the 2-year-old entertained himself while I made the rest of dinner.
I pureed the squash. This stuff is liquid gold in my opinion.
Unfortunately no one else in my house agrees. But they all devoured the rest of dinner!
Even though everyone skipped the cranberries and squash.
(I don’t know what’s wrong with them either.)
After dinner it was jump and stand on mommy time.
Then we dance cleaned before watching one episode of Max & Ruby.
Our pre-bath and bed routine.
You know it was a fantabulous Sensational Sunday when my eyes are closing blogging this post.
I’ve got to go. I’m not going to make it.
Hope you had a great weekend!
