We originally had big plans for the weekend.
At the last minute plans changed.
At first I was really sad about it, and the kids were totally bummed too. But then we realized this meant we had a whole weekend together with no plans! The house was clean, laundry was caught up on and we had the fridge and cupboards fully stocked! That almost never happens, so we took full advantage. We played tons of board games, legos, spent hours coloring guys, I even laid on the couch for awhile, I can't remember the last time I did that! It was cold outside, but nice. The kids played outside quite a bit. They play so well together. Listening to them making up games, running all over the place searching for things, it just makes me smile. They love each other so much.
Today we had another family in the area over that is leaving next week for their first trip to Ethiopia. They seemed like such a great family, I look forward to meeting their daughters one day!
In the end it turned out to be a perfect weekend.
How could it not be with these kids?
Alright Bubbie, so here are the pictures I promised!
Will is getting so big and soooo goofy!
Emma was just beyond excited that Halloween was finally here! Happiest dinosaur ever.
Caroline wanted to go the freaky route.
Jack and Sam had to go as something that "went together" They do everything together, they even shared one trick or treat bag!
It ended up being so nice outside, even the little dragon went along for the ride
Even in costumes they melt my heart!
Maybe things work out for the best sometimes...this was the perfect weekend!
Just what this family needed!
