Before this weekend is over, I wanted to do a post about our long weekend last weekend! I'm just barely slipping in there! Katie had fall break, so she was off the Friday and Monday - and we had a blast!
Thursday night, she had a sleepover with Cee Cee. They did lots of art and made cookies and all kinds of fun things! Katie made the mask in the picture all on her own! And she played school with herself if that is possible :) When she got home Friday afternoon, Brad informed her of something fun they were going to do the following day (Saturday). That is the picture on the left. She was so excited that she was going to her first college football game! That's right, she and Brad took a day trip to Knoxville for the game - and thankfully saw a win!
Here are some pictures of their fun! Of course I got a picture of them together before they left. And Katie with Neyland Stadium behind her when they got there. And they ate at Gus's before the game! And I love the picture of the two of them together at the game! She had the best time and was so excited to tell me all about it!
While they were gone, I took the boys to the mall (it was nasty and rainy) and then we came home and relaxed and watched football. Jack got some new Thomas rainboots and he couldn't wait to use them! Ryan wore shoes for the first time and Jack was so excited for him :) I also have to say I have the best neighbors ever! They brought me homemade potato skins AND dinner - cheeseburger and corn on the cob! YUM!
On Sunday, we got up to head to church! That afternoon we just relaxed and then of course we hit up Newks for dinner (just like every Sunday)! Katie got to go up and order a piece of cake for all of us to share all by herself - she was excited to order and pay and get change!
On Monday, I took the kids to meet our neighbors at Monkey Joe's! They both LOVE that place. I love that it wears them out :) Afterwards, we picked up Brad and went to lunch with him! Apparently Jack LOVES corn on the cob! I don't think there was a single kernel of corn left on there once he finished! After quiet time, Katie had soccer practice. We finished just before bad storms rolled through! Whew!
And then it was back to the grind! It was fun to stay here (for the most part) and have some fun rather than packing our life into the car to go somewhere. Maybe we will do that next year - but for now, this was fun!
