My weekend...

I feel like I had a very busy weekend, yet I spent most of it at my house! My MIL came up on Friday and is leaving tomorrow, and she was a huge help to me! Tony worked all weekend (although he came home early afternoon today), and my MIL spent a lot of the weekend with the kids so that I could get stuff done. I completely cleaned and cleared out both the kid's closets. It doesn't sound like a big project, but it took me sooo long! I also got to escape yesterday and have lunch with a couple of friends which was really nice, and then Tony and I got to have a date last night. We went to dinner and a movie - we finally saw The Dark Knight. It was so good, and I can totally understand why everyone went crazy over how good Heath Ledger's performance was.... just amazing! So tragic to know that he never got to see the movie come out.

We also spent a lot of time outside this weekend. We had beautiful weather, and all the kids and adults were out today. I have some pics of my weekend to share. From looking at these pics, you'd never know that my daughter was clingy and fussy for a lot of the weekend or that my son woke up from his nap in "a mood". I definitely think these toddler/preschooler years are preparing us for the teenage angst stage most kids go through, lol.
Chloe posing for the camera:
Chloe with her Ya-ya (my MIL):Gotta love mine and Noah's attempt at a self portrait:Bath time:
My MIL bought Noah this Darth Vader mask that also makes sounds. Needless to say, he wore it a lot this weekend!
Chloe has been doing what we call "the excited pose". She clenches her fists, makes this really funny face and pretends to shake b/c she is so excited. Crazy kid.Lisa (next door) took my camera to try to get some pics of us. Tony decided to pick me up and toss me around, so I made the best of it by posing for the camera, lol.Noah loves to "play tennis", and he is really good at hitting the balls! My future Andre Agassi :-)

Overall, we had a great weekend, and I hope you all did, too. What did everyone do this weekend??

I have been working on cleaning out my house too - it is a never ending battle for me- I am sorely lacking in organization skills! lol I tell DH that a creative mind can't be organized too. lol
