A Weekend To Be a Mom

I have had a lovely weekend. Brandon left for a week on Friday morning and the kids and I have been on our own. After a full day of work on Friday, I picked the kids up and we started our weekend together. I have to confess that our lives have been so crazy as of late {as you all know :)}, and to be honest, I cannot remember the last quiet weekend we have had at home alone. 
So, on Saturday we did fabulous things like sleep in, stay in our PJ’s, eat whatever we wanted, play whatever we wanted, took a long nap and then met Brandon’s parents for dinner. It was so fun.

…and we made funny looking Mr. Potato Heads 
…eating popsicles with utter delight
And then on Sunday, after church we again went out to eat with Brandon’s parents and brother and sister in law, came home and napped. When we woke up we had fresh strawberries from the strawberry stand with a *little* bit of sugar…
And the sugar ended up everywhere….

But what a wonderful weekend! I decided one major thing this weekend…I am a working mom and that means that on weekends, instead of running around like a crazy person, I really need to focus on my family. The kids were so very happy to be with me, as I was to be with them. 
And I loved that.
I ignored emails, tried to not look at my shop/facebook/twitter pages, didn’t chat on the phone and didn’t think about myself. I loved it. It was wonderful. And after this weekend, I hope to have many more just like this. It was exactly what the doctor ordered for my crazily insane life. Even if it was without my husband {who we all miss terribly}…it was still fantastic.
Hope you all had a great weekend!

    Super fantastic & pictures too! :) I know it must be a little sad with Brandon away, but he probably smiled ear to ear reading your blog. Thank you for the reminder that being "present" with Hudson is one of the greatest gifts I can give him. xoxo
