I love Saturdays. So laid back with nowhere to rush off to. The boys and I did some grocery shopping today. While we were getting ready the door bell rang. I assumed it was my mother-in-law, who was going shopping with us, but when I opened the door it was four little kids asking if the boys could come out and play. Huh? When did this happen? My boys are to little for this!! Before I know it, they will be running all over town with friends. I seriously can’t even believe that. I wish I could just stop time…I don’t want them to grow up!!

After we did our grocery shopping, the boys friends came back over and they played outside for hours. It’s November and it’s freaking gorgeous outside. It’s almost ridiculous how nice the weather has been lately. We walked to the park and played and then headed back home. We had a big night of fun ahead….BABYSITTING!  We had the chance to watch our neighbors little girl tonight….she’s six months old and just precious. We had a good time and the boys were awesome with her. They were so gentle and loving. It was nice to see them with her and not the rough and tough brothers I’m use to seeing on most nights. They are the best kids I could have ever imagined having. I feel lucky to be their momma.

Well, everyone’s tucked into bed and I’m still up watching Netflix. I feel like I may be catching a cold. Yuck! I’m starting to get congested and that is horrible for me. I’d rather get stabbed in the leg  (maybe I’m exaggerating) than have a head cold. Nothing is more frustrating than a stuffy nose when you’re laying in bed trying to get to sleep and you can’t breathe! On that note, I’m going to take some meds and hope that it’ll knock it out.

Hope you enjoyed your Saturday and have a great Sunday with your family.

Thanks for reading!

Today was a nice day. It was the first day this week that everyone was home all day together. I loved it. We ate together, played together, and worked together. It was fabulous. I crafted for a bit today. Have I mentioned how much I love having my own space? My table is in front of a window, so I opened the curtains and let the sunlight in while I worked on some stuff…it was awesome.

Here’s a card I finished up.

I wanted to do something that used up some of my left over scraps from other projects. I already had this leaf image on my Silhouette Studio…it must have been on there when I got my cameo or was a free download…either way I was glad to see it on there when I needed it! Again, I used my sewing machine on the borders. I love incorporating it into my paper crafts. Such a neat idea….I can’t wait to experiment with this more.

I took the boys to trunk or treat tonight. They’re on the count down to how many days left before Halloween! We’ve been learning about days of the week in school, so this has been fun with Halloween approaching. Bonus was super shy and it took him about 10 minutes to finally get warmed up to the idea of being around so many unfamiliar people. Ultimately, the  idea of not getting any candy sunk in and he was ready to go. The boys looked so cute in their costumes. I didn’t get any great pictures tonight, so you’ll have to wait until Thursday to see what they are! Oh the anticipation!!

Jerms is off tomorrow, so I’m looking forward to another great day with my hubs. I better get some sleep…my alarm is set to go off bright and early tomorrow. Jeremy is already snoozing away…it’s rare that he’s ever asleep before me!

Enjoy your Monday!!

What a beautiful Saturday! The weather was perfect today. The boys had a chance to spend some time outside playing and we put out some extra Halloween decorations. It felt like fall today and not winter! It was a nice change from the cold days we’ve had lately.

I didn’t get as much work done today as I hoped too, but a little work is better than none. I know it’ll get done…just not as quickly as I’d like. The boys have really enjoyed Marley being here this weekend…they sure do love their sissy. She’s probably the best big sister ever. I mean, what teenager wants to hang out with a 4 and 5 year old? I’m sure they get on her nerves, but she plays with them and makes them laugh. They love her so much.

I don’t really have a lot to share tonight. We had a pretty uneventful day. Right now we’re watching a documentary about people who love to decorate their yard/house for Halloween. It’s interesting to say the least. I’m telling ya what people….it’s getting crazy on this Saturday night at the Shock house. 🙂

I can’t believe how big the are getting. They have grown up and changed so much since last fall. Bonus is such a ham. He is not camera shy at all! We got a few really great pictures of him and his silly faces. I think he will appreciate them when he’s older. 🙂

These boys are more then I could’ve ever expected when I dreamed of having kids. They make me laugh everyday. Yes..sometimes they drive me crazy, but it’s worth every minute. I love being their momma.
