Great weekend - (minus the sports world)! The kids and I snuggled up in the house and spent some great quality time together. Jake had lacrosse on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It's now 5 days a week, but completely bearable.
We all watched both football games, along with Sopes game. Paul and Jake decided to do the "football spread" of food. I do welcome the help! They even made ice cream floats - everyone's favorite! Lyla cleaned up the whole kitchen after the games - it was pretty humorous to unload the dishwasher. She had maybe 2 things on top and 6 on the bottom. Can't complain when the effort was there.
Right before the game, the girls came upstairs from the basement looking like hot messes! They decided to do their make-up for the game. Half blue and half orange. Took me forever to get it off of their faces!! They'll use any event to get "fancied up".
I'm a little early on Valentine's Day this year. We've already started our cards, baked some cookies and pulled out the decorations. The weather has been so grey, color is a nice change! Personally, I'm not a fan of the holiday in the romantic sense, but love it for the kids. Trying to be romantic on one set day isn't my style. I'd rather have a surprise on a random day...like today!
The dog began barking this morning at 7:30. We had just finished breakfast and were getting coats on to start the drop off process. Sopes was at the front door!! He has today off and decided that he needed to get away after the loss last night. Hearing the kids scream, "DADDY", puts a smile on my face. I guess having a +/- like a golf score doesn't make him so happy - seeing us - he's happy again!!
