Weekend Wrap Up

Not really sure why Im trying wrap up this weekend before the weekend is actually over. Maybe its because Im tired. Maybe its because its quiet enough in my house to think. Maybe its because both of the girls are napping. Maybe its all the above? Maybe.

Anyways, on to my pre-weekend end weekend wrap up. Really. Catch up.

You should know better by now.

We had two family reunion/get-together's this weekend. Smooshed into one Saturday. Blech. Ayla was loving her some park time, as she calls it. "Mommy, park-time?" So cute. Thankfully Mommy could find something for both the girls to wear and not freeze in our unseasonably chilly day. Leah is growing out of her 3 mo size but fits akwardly into 3-6 mo size still. Plus, both my girls need a serious wardrobe makeover. Im not as lucky as my friend Brookeanne, to be done with fall/winter shopping. To tell you the truth I have sadly not begun. Minus a few wonderful finds at yard sales early in season and a generous drop off from my cousin Lauren for Ayla. Definitely looking forward to some awesome shopping on our upcoming trip to Nashville!!

Not sure if you can tell, but Ay's toes are almost hanging off the top of her sandals... time to shop! Libby... Im talking to you! ha

So we had brief park time with lunch. Ayla got to ride the train. A must for all parents with toddlers. Its so cute. I rode it myself as a wee one :) So its pretty cool to see Ayla on it. I didn't get a whole lot of pics (rare of me, I know). But, my aunt requested me to take some shots of her only granddaughter Maren. Maren my newest lil cousin is just shy of 6 mo old and will surely grow up to be great friends with my girls. Aren't her cheeks chewable?!


Jeff's cousin's family and aunt & uncle came into town. We get to see them about 1-2 times a year so this was a treat. The kids all played together really well. And the weather held up to be a decent day. It made me start thinking of how much I love fall!




After church we had a few nibbles before everyone left and now Im sitting here in my quiet house, editting pictures and trying not to doze off while Jeff cleans out the car. What a good man, huh?

That's been our weekend so far. No injuries, a few temper tantrums, lots of laughs and love. Here's to hoping the girls sleep good tonight and someone wants to make dinner for me :) What did you do this weekend?

There is definitely some good shopping in Nashville! The mall by the Opryland resort is AMAZING! You'll find lots of things there.

i just started shopping for baby, and it is kind of daunting to think that i have 18 years of clothes to buy ahead of me. it helps that the clothes are so cute though, and girls' clothes are even cuter. thanks for the sweet comments about theo on our blog, by the way. i hope you can meet him too! have a great day. -beth
