Happy St Patty's To Ya

It's St. Patrick's Day and I have a ton of stuff to do. We are hosting Easter again so that means the whole house has to be cleaned. I have been wanting to do some spring cleaning and I found a complete list of things that should be done while I was blog hopping so I am going to start that today. If I do a little a day it shouldn't be too bad.

I also have a list a mile long of other things I need to do today. A Target run, Lowe's for some fencing, laundry, fluffing Rob's shirts, making breakfast pizzas to freeze, figuring out what we are having to eat on Easter, wash walls, go through linen closet, dust bookcases. I'll just stop there.

We had a pretty good weekend. Low key which is nice once in a while. Friday night I went to a baby shower. Possibly the longest in history. Present opening for almost two hours. It was fun though. We ate a good dinner, got to hang out with the girls and didn't have to put the kids to bed. Oh wait. The boys were at Rodger and Terry's and when I got home at almost 11 p.m Rob and Emily were in our bed watching Sleeping Beauty. When it was over I went to wash my face and brush my teeth and when I came back she was sound asleep. So precious. I love sleeping babies.

Saturday Rob and Rodger took the boys riding and Emily and I ran errands. We left about 1:00 and had to go to Old Navy, Ross, Walmart, the bank, Home Depot and Lowe's. When we got done at Walmart, our last stop, I could not believe that it was 7:00. We had been out for six hours running errands. Poor Emily was so good about it. She stayed right with me and only complained about her feet hurting at the end. I had no idea that it had been that long or we would have been home a lot sooner.

Yesterday Rob went skiing so the kids and I went to my parents for the day. We have been trying to plan a trip for Christmas this year. Just all of us on a trip, no gifts. We wanted Hawaii, then Mexico, we even tried Puerto Rico and everything has been booked solid. The only place we could find was a resort in Northern Mexico. It looked like a really nice place but the average winter temperature is 59 degrees. Not exactly bathing suit weather. Sooo we talked and found a place in Mazatlan for spring break and we think that's what we are going to instead. It's a little longer to wait but it's also more time to save money...and it will be warm. Totally worth the wait.

Last night we went bowling with our home team then out to pizza. And I would like to say that I beat Rob in the second game. Thank you, thank you. I love bowling and when we go I wonder why we don't do it more often. Taylor tried bowling the first game without bumpers and actually did a good job. The second game he opted for them, though. I think his arm was tired. Austin did pretty well too. He's getting so big.

Happy St. Patty's Day to you too!
Sounds like a great weekend. I love running errands. If feels so good at the end of the day to look back at all that you've accomplished. I love bowling too. It seems like we've gone a lot more than usual lately....Christmas, the boys' birthday, and we just went last month with our home team. We'll have to go together sometime. :)

Okay, I have to ask, what is 'fluffing rob's shirts'?

LOVE the new blog by the way!

You've got a lot of stuff going on!! :) It makes me laugh reading other people's comments, especially when I think the same thing. Explain the breakfast pizzas and "what is fluffing rob's shirts?"

Funny, I was wondering the same thing as the three above me. Breakfast pizzas sound like something the boys would like and how does one fluff a shirt? :)
I was thinking about taking the kids bowling next week during Spring Break but I think Carson would lose interest pretty quick so I'll hold off on that for now.
