The last weekend of January has arrived. Don't ask me how that happened! Time stands still for no-one, right? This weekend is a nice mix of fun and rest, just the way I like it.
Friday night we are free. I think we will have a simple dinner of BBQ Meatballs and macaroni and cheese for dinner. And of course...chocolate cake made by Peyton to celebrate National Chocolate Cake Day! Then we will probably watch some tv or play some games. Speaking of games...have you ever played Googly Eyes?!?! It is sooo fun!!!!
Saturday I have some things to do around the house...think bathrooms and bedrooms...before Mass. After Mass, we are picking up some of our favorite Chinese takeout and celebrating Chinese New Year! Flynn has been studying about it in school this week, and is excited to share some of the new things she has learned. I found a cute unit on Teachers Pay Teachers, and some fun coloring pages free on the Internet.
Sunday. Our first football free Sunday in a long time. Don't even get me started about my Steelers, who apparently missed their flight last week, because I am certain they did not show up for the game. Anyway, we have no plans except for replacing lightbulbs and taking naps on the sofa. I am not sure about dinner, but possibly some ham and scalloped potatoes? We are planning on finishing the weekend watching The Miss Universe Pageant. We will be cheering for Miss USA of course, and Miss Denmark too. : )
Here are some happenings around our house this past week...
I got hugs from my baby...
Who was thrilled that we broke out the Valentine's Day clothes for Mass last weekend.
I was so happy to see that my Madison visited a beautiful church in Copenhagen...
And told us she said a prayer for us there.: )
Peyton baked this pie for our Monday night Bachelor viewing...
I have posted this before, but it is just that good. I found it on my dear friend Patty's wonderful blog here
I know I post a lot about my sweet puppy Mocha...
But I don't want to forget about our first little pup Kirby. : )
We finally got some snow here in Pennsylvania...
Not as much as they were calling for...
But it was beautiful...
And Flynn and I went right out to capture it as best we could.
How adorable are these two littles???
The precious little girl is...you guessed it...my sweet mother!
And the little boy? Her brother...my awesome Uncle Tim!
I am blessed to have this photo...complete with my grandmother's handwriting on the back...hanging in my kitchen.
I am sharing it with you today because Monday, January 30th is my mother's 80th Birthday!!!!
Her brother Tim turns 79 today, January 27th!
How wonderful is that?!
Well, thanks for visiting, my friends.
Have a cozy weekend doing your favorite things with the people you love!
