girls' night, dinner in, and a lazy morning

Started out the weekend with some fun...
Savannah and I ran away to a hotel for the night... girl stuff all around; the mall, hot tub, manicures, books and magazines, no boys around, and snacks, snacks, snacks.

It was fun.  With the best company.

We ended up returning Saturday for Sawyer's basketball game afterall... I had told her we could skip it, but after she had told me not once, not twice, but three times that morning that we didn't have to miss it if I really wanted to go watch, and since we had opened the mall in the morning and were pretty much done with our girls' day at that point anyway... we met the boys at the church for the game.

And I ended up with a pretty killer headache that afternoon, so it was probably good we came home early.
After a nap on the couch I was feeling better and we just all relaxed and hung out for the rest of the weekend... with a trip to the dollar theater as well as the dog park thrown in on Sunday for good measure.

Oh, and the kids made dinner last night.
On our way back from the park I was lamenting brainstorming dinner ideas and the kids chirped in; "we'll make dinner tonight!".  So we were ordered to stay out of the kitchen and they would plan everything.  And everything it was; complete with the table set (with plastic dishes and crazy straws) and menus made up for us.
Menu consisted of:
"hot dogs (sorry, no buns), french fries, peas and grapes
root beer, water or milk to drink
cookies, cheesecake or ice cream for dessert"

Our chefs:

And here we are, Monday already... presidents' day and the kids are home from school.  Doing nothing but playing video games so far. ;)

Not sure what will be on tap today once we actually get moving... the sun's out and it's supposed to be nice, so maybe we'll get outside and do something. Although these pj's are pretty comfy...
