Weekend Plans

The weekend is here. A quiet winter weekend. I am looking forward to a couple days of quiet family fun. Friday looks to be a chilly, rainy day here. That calls for a cozy, family fun night. I am planning a simple supper of sloppy joes, french fries, and fruit. Then we will make a bowl of popcorn and watch a movie, or play some of the new games the kids got for Christmas. I am afraid if we don't they will soon get lost on the playroom shelf. We always play the new Christmas games during Christmas week, and then forget all about them. Does that happen at your house too? The kids have had a hard time adjusting to the school routine after a break, so I think they will be asleep pretty early!

Saturday Steve's mother is stopping in for a visit. She doesn't get down often, so we are looking forward to visiting with her here. I am having homemade pizza stromboli for supper. The kids actually have fun making them with me. After supper, we are going to the evening Mass where Rhett is serving. He always looks forward to that. After that, the girls and I are planning on watching The Miss America pageant. We watch it every year together. It is a tradition in this house!

Sunday is another free day! I have brunch planned with waffles, eggs, sausage, toast, and fresh fruit. Once that is all cleaned up, I imagine some people in my house will be watching football. Even though our Steelers are done for the season, we are still a football house! I may even pencil in an afternoon nap! Well, that is our laid back winter weekend. I hope yours is nice and warm and fun, whatever your plans may be! Thanks for stopping by!

My sweet, sweet parents on my dad's birthday : )

My two lovely girls who came down for Mass last weekend wearing the same sweater!

Look what I found! Makes me feel better about my littles eating pop tarts for breakfast!

And a little mid-week treat to sweeten up our day!

We were so happy to have a visit from our dear family friend and former parish priest, Fr. Leon. He is also Rhett's godfather.
 He recently returned from a trip to Rome and brought us a Papal Blessing! We were so very excited and thankful!
