Weekend Shenanigans

The weekends seem to come and go way too fast, am I right?!
The week goes by so slowly and once the weekend hits, it comes and goes in the blink of an eye.
I'm still recovering from hernia surgery but I was going a little stir crazy being in the house for almost 2 weeks.  So Friday night the girls headed to grandma and grandpa's for the night and mommy and daddy went to hang out at a friends house.  It was so nice to get out of the house, even if that meant we were going to someone else's house to hang out.  I was still able to get out and talk to someone other than my wonderful children.  The first week of recovery was a little rough, I was in pain, I couldn't get comfortable, I felt helpless, I couldn't stand straight up without my tummy hurting, my lower back was hurting because I couldn't stand straight up.  The second week came with a little more relief but my husband has to go out of town for 3 days and I was worried how things were going to go with just the girls and I.  I made it through and with the help of my wonderful aunt, who took the girls to and from school for me.
Saturday morning came and that meant mom and dad get to sleep in cause the girls are at grandma and grandpas.  Our Saturday tradition is go get starbucks and hang out.  We went and go starbucks and then my husband headed out to go help a friend and I decided it was probably time to take down our Christmas stuff.  If I could leave up our Christmas tree and d├ęcor up all year round, believe me I would.  I love the twinkly lights, the way you feel more cheerful with all that stuff set up.  My it's January 9th and the time has come, so until next Christmas.  Now it's time to decorate for Valentine's Day.  The girls returned later in the afternoon, right at the perfect time, naptime!  They got home played for a little bit and then went down for a nap.  After nap time they played a little bit more, we ate dinner and then headed to a friends house to watch Super Cross.  Where we got home way past bedtime but had lots of fun.
Sundays mean that it's the final day to just hang out and do nothing if you don't want to.  The final day to stay in your jammies all day if you want.  We got up, made our shopping list and headed to WalMart to go return some stuff and grocery shop.  The girls got to pick out some new, with the money we got from our return.  They picked out new sleeping bags, Kendall added twins to her ever growing baby doll collection and Keira got a Barbie doll, Kaylee wanted to save her money and get something bigger once she earns more money from doing chores.  After doing grocery shopping daddy dropped Kendall & I off at Home Goods to walk around and spend my Christmas gift card while he took the older girls to PetsMart to get new tags for the dogs.  I scored some good finds at Home Goods, I mean I could have a field day in that store.  We got home ate lunch and the girls went down for a nap, while I relaxed on the couch with my feet up.  Today was the most walking around I've done in almost 2 weeks and it may have been a little to much.  After the girls woke up from nap time we just chilled around the house.  Each of the girls did there own thing quietly which was nice while mommy and daddy watched a movie.  Keira played on the ipad by the fire, Kendall played Legos and Kaylee watched the movie with us.  Even though the weekend passed by to fast it was still a great weekend.

As part of my goals this year I'm going to do Project 52 with the girls, where I take a picture of them once a week and at the end I will make them a book so they can look back and see how much they've grown.  On top of that I'm also going to step out from behind the camera and get in the picture with them.  I don't have enough pictures with my girls unless it's a holiday so I want them to be able to look back on pictures of us together.  I missed it last week so this week was our first week and I already love the picture we took today.
Week 2/52
