But I was so thankful for a three day weekend. We seemed to fill it up but there was a lot of down time. My kids were with their dad so that freed up quite a bit of running around. It was also nice because Rich and I had some much needed us time. We went to dinner Friday night and then went home and watched To Kill a Mockingbird with Sarah. They both read the book because Sarah had to read it for English. It had been quite awhile since I had read it. It was a good movie, I just love Scout. Saturday was a trip to breakfast and the Farmer's Market with Rich. Then off to Andrew's baseball game and then Sarah had a marching band competition. Man was it cold and windy. I felt like an Iowa girl in my hat, mittens, and three layers of sweatshirts. Sunday was cleaning and errands and today Bella and I made cake pops for her homeroom advisory class.
OK as the title suggests I have quite a few pictures to show you. These date back to mid October...yikes.
I have been baking cookies quite a bit...here are a few of the ones I have been doing.
Halloween Frankensteins and Spider Webs
Dia de los muertos cookies for Bella's party
My friend and colleague had a baby shower and I made these.
I am getting hooked on decorating cookies. So much fun.
I had my concert
Here is a video Rich shot with his phone (so the audio isn't all that great), it is our second selection from the concert and a lot of me talking. I realize that my mom might just be the only one who watches it all the way through...that's OK. If it even works.
We had Homecoming.
Here are a few from Halloween:
Then there was our big Cinderella production.
Steps to making an Ugly Stepsister
Well that pretty much catches you all up on the goings on around here.
The next few weeks will just fly by. I really hope I catch a few more weekends like this one.
