|Weekend in the Life...|
|Saturday, March 8, 2008|
|I get up early and read a bit|
|Middle Daughter watches the end of the movie she started last night|
|I make breakfast and the awake kids eat|
|Husband wakes up|
|The boy reads until bathtime|
|I have a sinus headache. Does it show?|
|I play on the interwebs|
|The girls play on the piano|
|Husband reads nerdy books|
|More piano playing for everyone!|
|Time to go!
Husband helps The Boy with his boots
The girls check the mirror one last time
|Oldest Daughter doesn't have any boots. Poor baby!|
|We are going to need money. Lots of money.|
|The kids rock out to Husband's Ipod Of The Eighties|
|Our destination is in sight!!
We're going to the Livestock show.
|We park the car and start walking.|
|We walk past these horses|
|And we walk past these horses|
|This is my favorite|
|We walk some more. (It's a very long walk)|
|But we are rewarded at the end, because we hit the FOOD TENTS!!
BBQ here we come!
|The Exhibit Hall is very, very crowded|
|We watch some of the judging|
|The Boy pretends to drive a tractor|
|The Boy pretends to drive a tractor over Middle Daughter.
Yeah, we're weird.
|Pat the bunny!|
|The trash bins make me laugh|
|Can we have a baby chick? Pleeeease?
I say no.
|I think these cows are gossiping about us|
|Smile for Miss Moo!|
|I like the spinning and weaving demonstrations.
|The goats are getting all gussied up for the judging
|Boots boots boots!
|The quilts are gorgeous|
|The stitching is amazing|
|Time to try on some Cowgirl glamour|
|Apparently crystals are the in thing this year|
|I don't really get the point of this, but Oldest Daughter tells me it's cute.|
|Oldest Daughter shows off her new Lone Star phone case|
|Time for more food! We share a funnel cake.
Oldest Daughter thinks I like seefood.
|The Boy has had enough of boots for one day|
|This looks interesting.
I am mean and don't buy it for him.
|The Grand Champion Boot.
I couldn't make this stuff up, people.
|It's the time of day when sitting is a good thing. We find ourselves doing more and more of it.|
|The Footsie Wootsie machines are fun and kinda freaky all at the same time|
|Time to round up the younguns and head fer the ranch.
The Boy is not pleased.
|Bye-bye, Livestock Show!|
|Hello, Mom's house!|
|Surprise! My niece is here for spring break.|
|Braxton meets Oldest Daughter for the first time|
|We hang for a bit|
|Why is everyone hanging out in the kitchen?|
|Banana Bread!! Fresh from the oven!|
|The Boy shows Sara his new Transformer moves.|
|My mom takes us to dinner. Yum!|
|Someone recommends the fajitas.|
|Back to my mom's. I am very tired.|
|It's such a shame no one likes this dog.|
|The Boy pretends to be Braxton.|
|Oldest Daughter gets arty with bobby pins.
She looks tired.
|Middle Daughter collapses while Oldest Daughter does what teenagers do.|
|Sunday, March 9|
|We head home|
|I wake up to find The Boy leaving me a note telling me he cleaned the room while Husband and I were sleeping.
We slept very late.
|Middle Daughter isn't feeling well.
Apparently, it's nothing leftover fudge can't cure.
|Oldest Daughter is ready to go!
But first she has to take a call on the BananaPhone.
|The weather is gloomy today, but the flowers still know it's spring.|
|We need to rectify Oldest Daughter's state of bootlessness|
|There are lots to choose from, but she likes these best|
|She decides to wear them out of the store|
|Next we buy some face stuff for me. It costs a lot of money to be a natural beauty.|
|We're only window shopping at Anthropologie, because I'm not made of money.|
|I didn't expect to love this top as much as I do.
Now I'm sad about not being made of money.
|Cutest. Dress. Ever.|
|OMG I think I had these pants in high school!!
I am officially old.
|Next stop, Bering's Hardware. I need coffee and air filters.
Coffee first. We sample some Rainforest Blend while we shop.
|We hang out in the garden department for a while|
|I don't know why she laughed at this hat.|
|We like the hedgehog|
|Oh, yeah...air filters|
|Look at the pretties!|
|Did I mention that this is my favorite store in the whole wide world?|
|I want my house to look like the gift department at Bering's.|
|And shiny stuff!|
|It's time to head back home.
This is the ugliest house in my neighborhood. No easy feat.
It's bigger than the church across the street.
|Yay! Husband bought groceries.|
|I brown the roast and put it in the oven.|
|While it's cooking the girls play the piano|
|I do some of this|
|and some of this|
|until it's time to do this. Back in the oven!|
|So I do some of this|
|And recruit MD to do this|
|After dinner, Husband does this|
|But he also gets to do this|
|We check on our porch spider.
That's her at the top of the picture. She is a very big spider
|This is the web she spins every night if it's warm. She takes it down every morning.|
|I'm not sure what we'll do this summer when it's warm every night, because she spins this web all across the front of the porch.|
It's been a busy weekend! Goodnight everyone!
|The Boy watches Mythbusters and takes notes.
Did you notice Middle Daughter and The Boy are still in their pyjamas? This is what happens when Men are In Charge.
