Weekend Wrap Up 10/4-10/6

After work Friday I meet up with another mom to buy some Disney outfits.  I am so excited about these outfits.  Hallie is all set for our upcoming trip.

After Hallie went to bed, David and I decided to start watching the Blacklist.  I had heard good reviews.  It did not disappoint.  We watched the first 2 episodes and now we’re hooked.

We stayed home from dance on Saturday since Hallie and I were both snotty and congested.  It rained all day Saturday.  I used that opportunity to organize Bryson’s room and sell some of Hallie’s clothes online.  At night time, I got a text from Bryson’s dad saying Bryson had bumps all over him.  He started getting the bumps on Thursday.  We never could figure the cause.  Thankfully, they were gone by Sunday.

Sunday we went to church in the morning and picked Bryson up in the afternoon.  We at dinner at Zaxby’s.  Bryson normally eats ranch with his chicken, but he decided to give the Zax sauce a try.  The kid LOVED it.  I think he said it was the best sauce ever 1,864,349 times.  He even asked for some to take home.  Silly boy.

We headed to Ulta and Target after dinner.  On the way we saw an airplane on a trailer.  That’s something you don’t see every day.

We had fun in the Halloween section.  Hopefully the kids don’t get lice.   

Weekend Wrap Up 9/27-9/29

We spent Friday at home.  Nothing exciting.  But something funny.  We trace Hallie's hand a lot and let her trace our hands.  Well, she wanted to trace Buster's paw.  He wasn't game.  

I love the last picture.  She's telling Buster to put his hand on the paper, and he's looking at her like she's crazy.

Saturday morning we went to baby ballet.  I think she likes the table and books better than the dancing.

We headed to Bryson's soccer game.    It was super windy.  The boys played good and won.

It rained in the afternoon, and the kids enjoyed playing outside and getting wet.
We went to church Sunday.  I thought it was funny that Hallie blended in with the nursery decor.
In the evening, all of us headed to Walmart for groceries.  Bryson was super excited that he found a beard for his Halloween costume.  We had fun with it.

Week Recap 9/23-9/26

Monday – Bryson had soccer practice.  This was his second practice.  I was unable to attend his first practice because of prior obligations at church.  David didn't get any pictures of his first practice because he left his phone at home.  So, we’ll count this as first practice.


Precious.  Both of them are sucking on their bottom lip.  I didn’t notice this while taking the picture.


Tuesday – I got a call in the afternoon from Bryson’s school saying that his eye was hurt and they thought he needed to go to the doctor.  When I picked him up, his eye was swollen, red, and running nonstop.  I took him to the optometrist.  She put iodine in his eye and examined it under a black light.  There was a bright neon line where his eye had been scratched.  Nana was playing with him before school and accidentally scratched his eye.  The optometrist prescribed some drops that dilated his eye and some antibiotics.  Bryson was worried about going back to school and being ugly from his dilated eye.  I tried to convince him how cool it was, and he could tell the kids at school that he was magic.  It didn’t work.  I have my suspicions that he wore sunglasses all day during school.   

This was our planned fair night.  We thought about not going because of Bryson’s eye and Hallie was in a sour mood from not having a nap, but Bryson (and secretly me too) would have been so disappointed if we didn’t go and it was the only night we could go.   

As soon as we got there we ran into by BFF and her fam.  Our kids enjoyed some rides together. 

Hallie did okay.  The first ride was going good.  We were going round and round.  Then, we started going up, and that’s when she wasn’t having fun anymore.  She just buried her head in my lap until the ride was over.  I could not determine why she liked some rides and not others.  I was hoping to gain some perspective to help in planning our upcoming Disney trip. 

Wednesday – We usually go to church, 
but we decided we needed a day of rest. 

Thursday – Bryson had his first soccer game.  His team won.  Bryson was pumped that he got to play goalie for part of the game.

This week was a busy week.  I’m afraid all weeks are going to be like that for a while.
