i'm not sure why i like the weekends so much. i mean i'm a sahm AND i homeschool so i'm home all week anyway! and usually my DH is working.
but not this weekend!! he was home and we actually got something done!! last week we had a ferocious wind storm. many, many branches got knocked out of the trees and have been laying in the back yard just yelling for a chainsaw to come and cut them up. so hubby pulled out his new toy and got to work!
now we have lots of firewood. unfortunately it's been soo warm here that i figure we won't get to have another fire this year. hubby says the groundhog lied. look - even the flowers and trees are blooming!!
on friday night we went to dinner at the church where monkey goes to pre-school. the boy scouts were having a fund raising valentines dinner. for $20 hubby and i got to have prime rib with salad, a side, dessert and coffee and best of all we got to have it with just the 2 of us!! candles and soft music. no kids at the table. i didn't have to cut up anything for anyone and didn't have to clean anything up!! AND they kept monkey and fed him spaghetti!! it was a great evening.
oh and big c went skiing with his youth group this weekend. we dropped him off on friday and we pick him up today. he called yesterday and said he was having a great time. can't wait to hear all about it. we missed him a lot but i think that monkey really enjoyed spending some time with mommy and daddy without big brother around!
this is how my monkey swings...
none of that back and forth nonsense for him. oh no it's side to side and spinning around that makes monkey happy!
