weekend in review

I think this weekend was the first official lazy weekend we’ve had in Huntsville. I actually struggled to get off of the couch for most of Saturday and I fear I brought Brent down with me. Sarah zoomed around at her usual speed but I think her mommy and daddy were bitten by the lethargy bug. Do you ever have those days where you spend the whole day going, “what should we do today”? That was us on Saturday.

At one point Brent sat straight up and said, “I know! Pi’bear and I will make cookies!”

Um, okay.

I can remember one time when we were dating when he helped me make chocolate chip bar cookies but other than that I’m not sure he’s ever taken on that particular feat. And with the Pi’bear as his sous-chef? Ha! He gets mad credit though for making some fantastic peanut butter cookies, cleaning the entire kitchen, AND dunking his right-hand girl in the bathtub after it was all over…and as you can see from the pics, she needed it!

We were totally pumped about Saturday evening though because our neighborhood was having a dessert social complete with bounce house for the kiddos. We had a good rain a couple of hours before we headed out and it was S-teamy! My camera lens fogged up immediately but I love the effect it gave these shots.

I’m particularly in love with this second one even though it’s out of focus, steamed-up, and seems to show nothing. It just has an aura to me. Can’t put my finger on it but I love, love it.

Unfortunately, we strolled the two blocks – wagon, Sarah, and pie in hand – only to discover that our only outing for the day had been cancelled by the rain. Needless to say, we were disappointed but that didn’t stop us from devouring the entire black-bottom banana cream pie within 24 HOURS. Oh my, it was glorious. Have I mentioned we’re a growing family? Yes, we most definitely are!

And finally, just a little fun before bed…

Sometimes those weekends are great for recharging the old batteries! Don’t feel bad about having a lazy day – rejoice in the fact that you had the opportunity!!

By the way, did you ever get that email I sent you with the link?

oooh a dessert social…maybe we’ll have one of those on our block too! awesome. i love that foggy picture too, it just says childhood and it makes it look like you can freeze time for just a bit, when you look at it real close.

Love those lazy weekends. Sarah is looking quite grown up. Fun foggy pictures! Like Brent’s longer hair too. 🙂

I understand about lazy days. Delaney and I had pajama Sunday and it was WONDERFUL!

Yum, yum, yum! All I can think of looking at Sarah in the kitchen is “rambo”. She’s one tough baker!

I have to say I have ALWAYS thought your daughter is just gorgeous. She is so darn cute I can’t stand it. LOL

I love photo #2 the best, too – it looks “dreamy”

Those kind of weekends are awesome, so looking forward to a Saturday like that in my future. Sorry your party get together didn’t work out but it looks like Sarah had a good time anyway, the pictures are really cute.

Yes, I have those days, when I just want to be in the house and do very little.
Way to go, Brent…Sarah will not forget this photo…with exception of the food all over her…that’s when the, “Boy Friend” comes into play!
Sarah won’t let you sit around, too much longer, Erin…Ha!!
Love you all….

Bummer that it was cancelled! Oh well, there will be another one. With MORE desserts!!

I’m hoping for one of those weekends soon too!

Thanks for the blogger button how-to! I made mine, and inserted it in my sidebar. I will add yours too!

Am I imagining things or is her hair getting lighter?

Looks like she had a ton of fun with the cookies 😀

Okay, you cannot post about food. Me and my pregnant self have to make this pie and eat it soon. 😉 Great photos as always. Oh and I love the thing about the blog button and will have to make one. Thanks!

Love the scarf around the head. So cute.

Thanks everyone. I promise I have more photos to post on my POTD…just need to find time to do it! If you’re thinking about making the pie, DO IT. It’s seriously the best thing ever. In fact, it’s Brent’s favorite and has been for about 5 years. MMMMMMMM. I forgot to mention in the post that Sarah is wearing one of my headbands…she’s totally obsessed with them (and all things “mommmy”). I like to think of it as her Apollo Ohno look!

HAHA, I get hit with that bug a lot!! Seems if I don’t have something pre-planned, I spend my free time pacing the house trying to decide what to do until it’s time for bed. 🙂
