I’d like to take a moment to recap our weekend.
Saturday morning, we awoke at 5, showered, fed and prepped the girls, loaded the diaper bag and car, and headed to Eldora to paint a backsplash!
We then drove directly to Gladbrook where we celebrated our neice, Kendall’s very first birthday! There was grilling, presents, …and cake. Lots of cake.
Upon our arrival back home, we glazed the china cabinet and server. I could show you a teaser picture, but that would require me to get up and take a picture, and I’m feeling mucho lazyo at the momento. *UPDATE!* ~mi hermana informed me the word for ‘lazy’ in espanol is perezosa. Aren’t you so glad we learned a new word together today? YES!
Because I desperately need to get groceries, we ate rice and corn… and watched a few episodes of House.
Next mornin’ we awoke at 7 to a couple of hungry babies.
After some house cleaning, we headed to town for some family grocery shopping. Taking the girls out in public is like a circus freak show. People flock from all corners of the store to see the two babies! “You really have TWINS? LIKE TWO BABIES? Double trouble! Better you than me! Busy Momma!” Yes I have twins. Yes they are both girls. No they are not identical. Yes I can tell them apart, by simply looking at them. No, I was not surprised when we found out we were having twins. Yes, I was overjoyed more than you can possibly imagine. Yes, we have twins in our family… you’re lookin at ’em. No, I’m not breastfeeding. Yes, I get plenty of sleep. Yes, they have totally different personalities.
…and why is it that people don’t have the self control to keep their bacteria covered paws off my precious offspring? Kinda makes me want to carry my crossbow with me.
Calm down, I don’t really have a crossbow.
We spent some time outside on our acreage enjoying the fall air, and walking our “nature trail.” Girlfriends love getting some fresh air.
In the evening, we strapped on our Baby Bjorns (thanks for the second one Carrie!) and did some baking in the kitchen together! As a family! Nick and Paisley made banana bread from scratch, and Adelyn and I made homemade pumpkin pie!! Then we relaxed, watched a couple episodes of House and ate baked goods.
What did you do over the weekend? Was there any painting involved? Or cake flying through the air? Is anyone else inexplicably obsessed with the show House? Ooo, has anyone been to a pumpkin patch yet? Maybe we’ll take the girls next weekend. FUN!
Pardon me now, while I go eat another piece of pumpkin pie.
