How We Spent Our Weekend

The changing leaves
Bob's mom dropped the babies off around 5:30 on Friday. We all jammed into the kitchen and cooked tacos and chocolate brownies. After we over ate, we painted pictures and played, until both babies passed out from exhaustion at 8:30. Then my friend Jen and Tracy came over for a glass of wine and girl time. We hung out in the sunroom for a couple of hours and chatted about old times and new times. After they left, Bob and I went next door for a fire. We were in bed by midnight, and Grace and Denny slept in until 9 on Saturday morning, so I got a great sleep after a great night.

Saturday ended up being a beautiful day outside. After I woke up with the kids and had breakfast, we went outside and played until Bob got up. Then it was time for Ohio State football. Bob built a fort for the kids, and him and I sat on the floor to watch the game. We played Cincinnati and beat them, 37-7. Go Bucks. O-H-I-O. Grace was chanting OSU songs all day long. She would be sitting in the kitchen coloring, and Bob and I would hear her little voice singing about Ohio. Way too cute. After the game we were supposed to go pick raspberries. When I looked at the web site for directions, I saw that they closed at 3 on Saturdays, so I was kinda bummed. We'll have to try again next weekend. Last night we had to get our cornhole fix, so we had a couple people over and played a few games. Then we roasted marshmallows on the fire and were in bed early again. Good stuff.

Sunday was my day to sleep in, and I did. I didn't roll out of bed until 11:30. Denny was already napping by the time I got up. Grace was busy playing with her barbies, so I had some coffee and read the paper until Heavy D got up. We didn't do much today. Layed low around the house, made buffalo chicken dip, watched football and tried to keep up with G&D. Tonight we are going to try to watch the movies that we got 2 nights ago. Even though I got a lot of sleep this weekend, I'm feeling tired. Probably too much sleep, my bodies not used to it.

Do you still have Buck? I never hear about him anymore??

I'm so sorry to hear about Buck. That breaks my heart. I am very thankful that Rocky is so tame and takes all the pulling and pushing that Seth throws at him.
