Weekend Recap Nov 21-23, 2008

Another weekend behind us.. Lately the weekends are going by in a blink of an eye, before you know it Christmas will be here.. I want time to slow down between now and Christmas so I can enjoy every moment of the season.
Do you like the above photo, I took it Tuesday morning.. See it's looking alot like Christmas these days even though Thanksgiving is just this week.. Well even if we don't get a white Christmas I'm pretty sure we will have a white Thanksgiving.
There isn't this much snow every where though.. I went to a town about 15 minutes from our house on Friday to do some grocery shopping and there yards were still green, it was like entering a different world.
guess this will be a good place to start my weekend recap.
Friday November 21, 2008 After the kids all got to school DH, Little Man and I took the big table that we used for Mr Man's birthday back to my grandparents house and help them set up for a family dinner we were having on Sunday, then we took off to go get groceries.. We thought we would head to Meijers and get some of there sales items(it is about a 12 to 15 minute drive from our house) ONLY while we were driving there Little Man fell asleep. We didn't want to wake him so we kept driving just a little further and went to the lake.. there was a tiny little bit of ice and snow on the water so I thought I would get a few pictures of it.. I kept having DH pull over and I kept jumping out of the van and snapping pictures.. brrrrrrrr was that cold, but here are a few of the shots I got

After Little Man woke up we got groceries and had lunch. Got home put the groceries away.. See all this exciting stuff I did LOL.. Once everything was put away I left DH in charge of Little Man and I went and got my hair cut.. Got 4 inches taken off, got layers and had them cut me some longer bangs.. I haven't had bangs in years. I should have taken before pics but I didn't.. here are the after, this is my hair without doing anything to it.. so it's not all styled, it does look when I take the time to do it LOL.. but it gives an idea of what it looks like, PLUS these were the pics I took of it after getting home from having it done. Friday night Mr Man and Sweet Pea went to my parents house, they were all excited that there cousins were getting in from TX sometime Saturday and they wanted to be there when they did. Princess went to the movies with a group of her friend and I got to play Taxi driver for that. That is pretty much how I spent Friday night except I also spent some time on the couch watching the Thursday night line up that I taped, Ugly Betty, Greys and Life on Mars. WOW I live an exciting life these days LOL..

Saturday was even more exciting..
Saturday November 22, 2008
DH played taxi driver for Princess and her friends to take them to a youth group work day community service sort of thing. While I stayed home doing laundry, After DH got home I took off to the library returned some books got some more, Then went over my grandma's house taking the chairs back that I used for Mr Man's birthday last week, and I helped Grandma set them up and I helped her get the placemats around the table for the family dinner on Sunday
Then I came home and Little Man was ready for his nap so I thought i would give DH a break since he had him the whole time I was gone. So I went and laid down with Mr Man.. Next thing you know I was waking up 3 HOURS LATER... Little Man was still asleep but goodness I never expected to sleep for 3 hours... The rest of my Saturday was cleaning, watching the stuff I taped from Wednesday night Pushing Daisy's and Private Practices, and playing on the computer.. I elfed the family.. Here is a sneak peek, I'm saving the videos till closer to Christmas.

OHHHHHHHHHHHHH also on Saturday I took a picture of this.... Does this belong to you??? Somehow this little thing has made him or herself at home in my yard, back porch and garage.. I fear it is going to freeze to death... it was starving and looks like it has been outside on it's own for a few weeks I would guess... But I know it once had a family because it is very friendly loves the kids and it runs into my house every time we open the door... If anyone knows who cat this is, or if you would like to give it a good home let me know. I really!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! don't want another cat.
Yes one cat is enough for now.. Plus my cat and this cat really don't seem to get along, Here is our cat looking out our window unto our back porch looking at this poor little cat out in the cold.
Sunday November 23, 2008

Sunday we went to church in the morning and got to see my sister, her husband and there girls for the 1st time since July. After church I started to take pictures and then thought never mind there will be plenty of time for that when we have our family dinner in an hour.. ONLY when I went home to change cloths before heading to my grandma's I left the camera on the table.. so the only pictures I got was after church when everyone was getting there coats on to leave.

After church in the morning we had a big family lunch over at my grandparents where we stayed till it was time for church again, My niece A shown above in the pink coat went to Awana's with my kids and they all had fun.. After church took A back to my grandma's and bought my kids home to get ready for bed they still have two days of school before getting to stay with my sister and there cousins over at grandma's houses.. :)
and here I sit typing out my recap.. and that folks was my weekend.
