Weekend Recap March 27-29,2009

Time for the Weekend Recap for March 27-29, 2009. WOW is it really the end of March already.. where is the time going?

Friday March 27, 2009
I had the night alone with just me and my hubby who really isn't feeling well.
Friday night Princess spend the evening with friends and then spent the night with my grandparents. After school I took the boys to my parents house.. Dad bought all these haircuts with his barber for him and the boys so when they need haircuts my dad takes them. So the boys were spending the night with them Friday for haircuts in the morning on Saturday. Sweet Pea was invited to spend the night with her friend Alexis on Friday night.. So I had the night alone with my hubby. Thought we would have a date night only DH ended up not feeling very well.. So we ate dinner and then went to walmart and got all the stuff we needed to fill Easter baskets.. Then came home. I put the DVD player in our bedroom and we laid in bed watching movies.
Also on Friday I did end up getting the lamp shades to replace the ones that broke over the last few weeks.
Got lighter color ones so the light would come though better and brighten up the room more at night.. Now the task of keeping them clean and stain free from little fingers.. wish me luck.

Saturday March 28, 2009
Saturday was nice because I got to sleep in till 10:30am then I took a shower not expecting any kids home until between lunch and dinner time.. but my parents brought the boys back home at 11am because Mr Man wanted to get home and ready for his friend Josh who was spending Saturday night with us. Though Josh wasn't coming over till 6pm LOL. Sweet Pea got home at 2pm and she had plans for Saturday night also.. her friend Taylor was spending the night with us and she was coming at 6pm. Princess and my grandma went shopping Saturday afternoon and Grandma got her home about 6:30PM and She had a birthday party to be at from 7pm to 11pm. DH rented the Wii Monopoly game for the kids to play and we all had fun playing that.
Unlike normal sleepovers I had to have a bedtime for the kids because of church in the morning. so at 9pm I put the boys in the boys room and started a movie and put the girls in the girls room and started a movie.. by 11pm they all were asleep. But between 9pm and 11pm Barry and I played the Wii Monopoly LOL.. I was kicking his butt but he turned the game off when he was about ready to lose and was all like "what I have to go pick up Princess " Yea whatever sore loser. Princess got home and went to bed.. I should have done the same.. I did go lay in bed.. but while DH was flipping though channels I saw the Notebook was on and I LOVE that movie so we watched that and I went to bed way to late.

Here are some pictures from Saturday night. the boys playing Wii the girls on the computer. the girls on Wii and everyone in there beds watching movies before going to sleep.

Princess had a few pictures from the party on her cell phone so I sent myself two of them to add to my post today here they are.

Sunday March 29, 2009
Sunday morning came really early. Had to be up earlier when you have 6 kids to get dressed, But we were up, feed, and dressed and out the door by 9AM for Sunday school and church and was back home dropping off the extra kids by 12:45PM. DH and Princess was asked to help out this newer softball team hold tryouts so from 2pm to 4pm they were up at the rec center in town helping with tryouts for this newer travel tournament softball team, which Princess wouldn't mind playing for but she has to stay with the team she is on since some extremely nice person who wanted to remain anonymous paid her player fee in full, after DH was laid off. So maybe we will keep this newer team in mind for next year depending on what is going on by then. They got home a little after 4pm and by 4:30 her friend Kate and Shay were being dropped off at our house because it was our turn to drive them to youth group. So DH took off with them at 4:30 and I took the younger kids to awana's.. Little Man was so tired from the weekend that he was clingy so I ended up sitting in his Cubby class with him and not going to the PM church service. We were all home by 7:30pm ate dinner and I had all 4 kids in bed by 8pm they were all asleep by 9pm and I went and laid in bed reading till abut 10:30pm when I got up and got ready for bed and then there was something on the 11pm news I wanted to watch so I watched that.. Then read for another hour and then went to bed.

I'm still really tired now.. Even though my weekend wasn't all that exciting as far as running here and there.. I'm just super tired.. DH isn't feeling well at all and he is now running a fever.. I do hope I"m not getting what he has..

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.. If you posted about it in any way shape or form.. link up so I can be sure to come and read about it.

Camera Critters #12

Camera Critters

It has been a few months since I have done a Camera Critter post.. but thought i would take the time to get back into the swing of things.

A couple weeks ago I was subbing at the preschool(love subbing there I Love all the kids they are the best) Anyways they have two new pets in there room.. and it was time to clean the cage.. Mind you I am not a fan of these two little pets at all.. they sort of gross me out.. but I thought Little Man might get a kick out of seeing them.. So while they were in the tiny box they were placed in while there cage was being clean I grabbed my cell phone and took a few pictures.
With in seconds of being placed in this box these little fellows were already leaving there droppings behind.
A hour or so later we went into the other class room next store to let the two preschool classes play together and the kids had there shoes off doing different things here and there and they asked to see the class room pets and touch them and hold them and such.. This one little boy had his shoe near by and let one of the little pets crawl into his shoe.

The little guy both mouse and boy were getting a big kick out of this... but the only thing I could think of was what those little things did with in seconds of being placed into the box..
I could hear the boys mother when he got home from preschool... Oh honey what is that brown stuff on your sock????

Lovely I know LOL...

9) Meeting with the people to get the ball rolling on getting medical coverage since DH's insurance is gone at the end of this month.

10) Ran to the bank and bought some printed paper checks since I forgot to order the normal ones and I needed a few to tie me over till the new ones come in.

11) Did laundry.


12) will be taking Mr Man to the dentist

Weekend Recap March 20-23 09

Just a little late getting my weekend recap up and posted.. another busy weekend for me.. and an even more busy Monday.. So onto the weekend.

Friday March 20, 2009

Friday was my mom's birthday so Happy Belated Birthday Mom...

honestly I don't remember what I did on Friday though out the day.. LOL now that is bad.. sitting here Monday evening and I can't remember back till Friday morning.

Friday evening Princess had a friend spend the night and Sweet Pea had a friend spend the night and Mr Man went to his friends birthday sleepover(yes 2nd weekend in a row for one of his friends having a sleepover LOL) and Little Man just hung out bugging the girls.

around 7:30pm the older girls wanted to go to blockbusters to rent a Wii game(Wii sing Disney boy did they all have fun with that all weekend) So DH took them to get it and he came back with a surprise movie for the two of us.. and also with one of my favorite movie treats from way back when we were dating.

What a sweet man I married.. The Plan for Friday night/midnight Saturday morning was to go to the Twilight DVD Release Party at walmart and since DH knew I was excited about this.. while he was at blockbusters he also picked me up this.. just more sweetness from him.

So the kids all gathered into the girls bedroom with The Wii and sang Disney songs for the rest of the night.

I had planned to head to Walmart around 11:30pm but at 11pm I got a phone call from my friend who was already there with her 13 year old DD and friends telling me I needed to get over there now because the line was already 4 aisles long weaving in and out like you would see at Cedar Point. So I placed the 1st grade girls in bed and turned on a movie for them and the 7th grade girls and I threw our coats on and ran out the door. We got right in line at the end of the 4th aisle right as it started to turn into a 5th. by the time 12:01AM rolled around I think there were at least 10 more aisles of people behind us.. we got our movie and was home by 12:30pm and watching Twilight by 12:45AM.

That was it for Friday..

Saturday March 21, 2009

Saturday was my Grandma's 76th birthday.. Happy belated Birthday to you grandma...

Saturday morning Sweet pea and her friend were up at 7:30AM UGH.. not fun when you stayed up till wee hours in the morning watching a movie..

But then I played short order cook younger girls wanted omelets, older ones sunny side up, 3 year old scrambled and all with the sausage patties. LOL.

at 11AM I was picking up Mr Man at noon taking Princess and her friend to her friends house.. where they were taking off to a huge indoor water park for the friends Birthday party.. Didn't see Princess until Sunday afternoon from that point..

around 12:30pm dropped off Sweet Pea's friend and came home and rested a bit..

later on in the afternoon DH was sick of being around the house.. He is so not use to being at home day in and day out.. So we took the 3 younger kids an hour south and walked the mall and spent at least an hour at the mall playground letting the kids play.. Then stopped by to visit with his parents and some family who were in from out of state spent a few hours there.. Then stopped by my parents where Mr Man was wanting to spend the night so we dropped him off.

Then we headed home.. and that was Saturday.

Sunday March 23, 2009

no birthday that I know of this day ;-)

Woke up went to church came home cooked lunch. tried to take a nap but every time I started to drift off someone yelled "MOM" so I gave up and made strawberry pretzel crust dessert..
Even while making dessert the 3 younger ones kept yelling "Mom" then it hit me I hadn't heard from Princess in about an hour or so.. So I went into her room to see what she was up too and if she needed anything and this is how I found her.
Fell asleep while snacking on Goldfish and root bear right in the middle of her floor while she was watching TV. She did wake up with enough time to do her hair and make up before having to head out to youth group Sunday night.
And on the topic of Sunday night.. I brought the camera out to load these pictures onto the computer before church ONLY DH was on the computer so I didn't get that done.. But Mr Man grabbed the camera and started taking some shots here are the ones he took Sunday night before we headed off to church and Awanas.

Then we headed off to church.. and YES Sweet Pea DID go to church looking exactly like this.. scare, messy bun she did herself and her shades.. LOL.. she has gotten to that stage where she wants to make her own fashion statement I guess.. OH and she was also wearing purple boots even though her outfit had no purple in it.. ~sigh~ When Princess was this age she never would have left the house to go to church making her own fashion statement LOL.. don't you love how rules change with each child you have.. :-)
After church came home fried up hamburgers for dinner then had the dessert and got everyone ready for bed..
That folks was my exciting weekend.
Monday I spent most of the day at the hospital with Little Man's speech therapy and he was also getting evaluated for Occupational Therapy.. which I might get around to blogging about later..
Tuesday is going to be even more crazy with running around for me.. beside the normal drop off and pick up for the kids for school.. Princess has her tri-country Academic Challenge tournament for the biggest part of the day, THEN Sweet pea has another doctors appointment, recheck on the Mono.. she is hoping the Doc will clear her to be able to start taking Gym class and recess again.. guess 7 weeks of not getting to play on the playground with her friends and sitting on the stage during gym and having to sit on the sidelines watching her friends do the Awana's game has taken it toll on her she is so ready to get back into the action.. I think he will clear her but I'm not 100% we will find out tomorrow. Then Princess has softball pitcher and catcher practice for her softball team. and Mr Man has his 3rd indoor soccer game. Someone asked last week if it was cold here and that is why they are playing indoors.. the answer is yes, it can still snow here this time of year.. and I'm still scraping ice off my windows every morning to take the kids to school. So yes it is still cold here
Wednesday Little Man has speech again, Thursday Mr Man has a dentist appointment and then we will be back to where I can write a new Weekend Recap.. boy does time seem to fly right by.
Well it is 11pm so I should head to bed..
Hope you all had a nice weekend and hope you have a great week ahead.
