Wow, it was a busy weekend!
We started off Friday by having some friends over for dinner. Remember Trenton’s girlfriend that I mentioned a few weeks ago? It was her family. And the girlfriend spent the night! I’m not sure how kids have so much darn energy, but Jarrod and I were ready to go to sleep, and the kids (excluding Evelyn) were still awake telling “ghost stories!” They were so cute!
The next morning after our sleepover guest left, Jarrod and Charlotte got dressed up for a Daddy-Daughter Tea.
There was some dancing, lunch, storytime, craft time where they decoupaged a frame for a photo that they took when they arrived at the event, and of course, tea.
Once Jarrod and Charlotte got home, they got changed, and Jarrod, Trenton, and Charlotte all headed out to Ski Roundtop – only about 25-30 minutes from us – for lessons!
Trenton took snowboard lessons, and Charlotte was on skis.
They both had a good time, and are looking forward to getting back out there soon – hopefully later this week when Uncle Bradley and Aunt Courtney come to visit!
Evelyn and I had a good time at home too. I got in a workout, did dishes and laundry, and had plenty of playtime with my favorite little one year old!
Yesterday we started out the day with church. Our kids are normally pretty well behaved – other than the sometimes loud wiggly one year old – but I’m not sure what was up yesterday because all three kids were a hot mess.
At lunchtime, we headed back up to the church for a new parishioner lunch. We’ve already become pretty involved in the church, but we learned about even more of the ministries that the parish offers.
I hightailed it straight from lunch to a spouses workshop on base. It was all about entertaining, and was really interesting. I came home with a lot of neat ideas for Valentine’s Day centerpieces for next weekend, only to find that Trenton and Charlotte had already taken care of that for me while I was gone. But I have to wait until next Saturday to open the box to see what they put together!
I ended the day with some yoga, an orange dream shake, a bubble bath, and a book. A good way to end a busy weekend. Now on to conquer a new week!
