Super Saturday

We had such a fantastic Saturday!

The morning started with the kids cleaning and sorting through things in their bedrooms. I would sure love to get the opportunity to finish downsizing a bunch of stuff, but I guess that will have to wait until after the wedding. We did fill a couple of large garbage bags full of clothes and stuff for charity, but it didn't seem like much this time.

We got my tire fixed and filled the fridge with milk and then it was time to celebrate. Tomorrow is Burrito's birthday and I wanted to do something fun with the family so 17 of us went to see The Greatest Showman. We chose a matinee to save us on the price and everyone chipped in their random gift cards and it cost less that $50 to get us all in. Then we had coupons for popcorn and drinks, so that helped too.

Waiting for pizza

Bossy and I both had coupons for free personal pan pizzas from Pizza Hut for the kids, so we got pizza and then played some cards during the evening. It was nice to think about anything but the wedding for a few hours.

Please Go To Bed!

Remember my excitement last night over the sleepover with my cute little granddaughter? Well, it's 2:00 AM and she is still going strong. I think I underestimated her powers of mess-making. During the day we have time to play and stuff. Tonight when I was trying to accomplish something, she is in to everything!

She just emptied a box and dumped the garbage can in the amount of time it took me to type this last sentence, and I'm pretty fast.

Please, Baby Girl, go to bed!

Friday Already?

What happened to this week?

Only 2 weeks from today and we will be getting ready for Dog Walker's wedding. Still so much to do! We have finally gotten a bunch of the invitations in the mail and delivered, but we need to get out again tomorrow and finish them up.

I want to give a shout out to Sam's Club. They donated frosting and cupcakes to Bingham's Cupcake Club for their latest activity. The kids decorated enough for the State FCCLA parent meeting and to take home to their families. I love when companies are supportive of activities going on right here in our city.

My boys basketball team has their last game tomorrow night. Surprisingly, I have really enjoyed coaching them; they are a great bunch of kids. I sure wish I could get more than 6 of them out at a time for practice...

This week was Teach and Twiz's 2nd anniversary and they are planning an overnight trip away for tomorrow night. We get to keep Twizlet here with us. It has been a while since I have been in charge of a baby all night long. It should be a fun (and likely sleepless) adventure!

The Greatest Showman for Valentines Day

Last night, after my sweetie had gone to bed, Sport and I headed out to the grocery store. He wanted to buy some Dr. Pepper for his girl and I needed milk. We wandered the store for a while and as it turned out, Dr. Pepper was on a fabulous sale! Sport got his 6-pack of bottles, and I bought 19 six-packs for my sweetie.

The Dog Walker carried them all upstairs for me while my sweetie snoozed away. Then when I finally found my bedroom, I took the bottles and formed them into a giant heart for him to find when he got up in the morning. My efforts were a success and he was quite pleased.

My afternoon was filled with being in charge of the 6th grade class party for Scout's class. It was fun, but not quite as smooth as I had hoped.

Then my sweetie and I went out tonight and had dinner at Red Robin. After that we went to the Megaplex and watched The Greatest Showman. Some of my kids have seen it and they loved the music and the characters, so we decided it would be a good one to see.

We were not disappointed. In fact, we liked it so much we are thinking maybe we should take the whole family on Saturday. Even though I know it is not completely historical, it is a fun and uplifting story.
