Crammin’ it in ~ Best Shot Monday

Our weekend started off with a lovely Saturday bagel date. We fueled up our tummies with bagels and our minds with all of the day’s news.

what is in the news?

And then? Well…I’m not really sure where the rest of the weekend went.

I guess it could have been lost somewhere along the way while we:
-Did some Christmas and birthday shopping.
-Grabbed some party supplies for Em’s soccer party.
-Bought our Christmas tree.
-Did a little real “work.”
-Cleaned the house up for the imminent party.
-Printed and hung some photos on the wall that has been pretty much bare for 2 years.
-Addressed and sent 75+ Christmas cards.
-And then decorated the other Christmas tree.


And that was the first half of the weekend.

Today, we managed to:
-Clean the house again (How – in less than 24 hours, how could it possibly get messy again?)
-Sing at church (well, Em and the Gospel cherubs sang – I just helped with the robing and de-robing)
-Celebrate our little friend’s 3rd birthday (complete with a bouncehouse!)
-And throw an end of the season party for the WonderGirls at our house. (Little hint – don’t even bother to clean your house – and certainly not twice! – when you are going have 11 kids running through your house with pizza and cupcakes!)

Exhausted. And other than the two photos here, I hardly took any photos.

But, J. took a bunch at the party for me and got this one which is my absolute favorite. The girls, giddy after some chocolate cupcakes, showing off their trophies.  So it is a J.’s Best Shot Monday today.

    Such beautiful girls – they are so cute.

    What a busy week – isn’t it funny how pre-kids we all thought there wasn’t the time!!! Then now I wonder how we even make the time for half the things we do. Good for you for getting throught that busy week and yet still sound positive…

    PS – I’m all done my Christmas shopping – yay – feels great.

    Did you get a trophy for Busiest Weekend Ever? N still will take her trophies out and look at them. And she hasn’t played in almost 2 years.

    Busy, busy, busy! My goodness, you manage to cram a LOT into two days! I bet the soccer party was a blast. Love the girls faces with their trophies, but I also love Addie catching up on the news!
