The BEST Weekend

I try to write about thought provoking or funny things on this blog, in an attempt to entertain my readers. However, I also have my blog posts bound into books each year to become keepsakes for my family.

So, today, I'm writing about something that I want in that book - to remember forever!

Due to a SNAFU on my part [and being generally broke!], we ended up home bound this weekend with no ability to drive anywhere. What could have been a really boring weekend turned out to be the best, most fun weekend I can remember in a very, very long time.

We just had fun!

Here is what we did:

- Tons of snuggling. It was wonderful to just have the whole weekend to hang out with each other, snuggling, tickling, giggling and just being silly and lovey dovey.

- Tons of cooking together [after having no AC all spring/summer/fall, it was AWESOME to have it cool enough to bake - check out these yummy cookies we made!].

- We talked - about serious stuff and extremely silly stuff.

- We laughed. A lot.

- We had several "Dance Parties" featuring our new favorite song by and lots of other favorite tunes. There is really just nothing cuter than watching little kids dance like crazy.

- We walked our dogs all around our neighborhood.

- We went to feed the ducks and geese at the lake in our neighborhood and they ate right out of our hands.

- We did "crazy hair" [including a less than successful - but hysterical - "faux hawk" on The Boy] just for fun - because we could.

- We read and read and read. And read some more. All cuddled up cozy on the couch.

- We played Chess. A lot. I am really bad at chess. I'm hoping that my kids are still learning while they are beating me [and no, I'm NOT "letting them win"!]. ;)

My only regret is that my digital camera died on me and I had no way to take pictures. [That is truly a travesty with this many cute kids around. My life brims over with adorable photo ops! It is a real shame to miss them!].

All in all - an incredible weekend! I'm so glad I had this time to just *enjoy* my children - because they are amazing!

Hope your weekend was great too! God Bless you!
