weekend with Grandma and Grandpa

What a nice weekend we’ve had!!  My mom and dad came down Friday afternoon and stayed for about 24 hours.  Short, but very sweet.  Friday night was our first date night without both kids. Sad, I know.  But Ellie doesn’t take a bottle well at all (totally my fault for not starting it earlier) so I haven’t really left her with anyone.  But she did awesome for Grandma and Grandpa and everyone survived the dinner/bath/bedtime craziness.  William and enjoyed some Mexican food and awesome mojitos!  And then we ran errands.  Oh what dates nights succumb too.  But it was fun to be together and we ended the night with some yummy Starbucks.  Red cups are here!!

Saturday morning, my mom came with Owen and I to our music class at CU School of Music.   He is so funny in this class.  He doesn’t really participate (unless it’s the instrument time) but then the second he gets in the car, he can sing all the songs back verbatim.  He must just soak it all in.Picture 421-001 Picture 426-001Saturday was the most beautiful day, so the minute we got home, we went outside to soak in the rays.IMG_8870 Owen convinced G&G to help him swing.IMG_8867 And swing some more.  This kid loves his swings.IMG_8873Here were the best attempts at a group picture.  Ellie wouldn’t look and Owen wouldn’t smile and I took the picture looking into the sun.  Let’s hope Jenna has better luck in a couple weeks!IMG_8884IMG_8885They went to the U of I football game and then headed home.  Really looking forward to spending more time with them, Jenna, Philip, and Kara at Thanksgiving.  We’ll miss you Casey!

Today was church and an impromptu lunch at Steak and Shake.  I really wanted to praise Owen for doing such an awesome job with staying dry so he even got to have a milkshake.Picture 433-001Cute note about church.  Owen got in the car singing one of the worship sings they did.  We found it on YouTube and we’ve sung it about 100 times today.

Didn’t get a picture of Ellison in her whole outfit, but man it was a cute one today.  Guess we’ll have to repeat the outfit soon so she can show off her boots. Picture 428And now, “back to life, back to reality.”  Who sings that song.  Darn, now it’s going to be stuck in my head.
