I am sure everyone who reads is on pins and needles wondering what we have been up to lately (cue sarcasm). Well, we've been doing a lot and not a lot all at the same time.
A few weekends ago, Travis and Emma took one last trip to deer camp hoping to get "the big one". While they were gone, I spend some time with the youngest two. We had movie night on Friday night, played around the house on Saturday and went to the Razorback basketball game on Saturday night with my friend, Samantha. Catherine was on the big screen THREE time! It was a lot of fun!
Sunday, Travis and Emma made the long drive home empty handed. They both had fun, but I think that they secretly wished they would have stayed here.
For Christmas, all I asked Travis for was a "staycation". I wanted a weekend at home with just he and I. (Yes...I know...how dare I want time away from the girls...). He talked to my parents and they worked out a weekend for them to keep the girls. Friday night, Travis and the girls met my dad in Ft. Smith. While Travis was fighting that traffic, I enjoyed a little happy hour with my friends from work. The rest of the weekend we slept in (if 8am in sleeping in), hung out together and ran errands. Saturday night we went to a nice dinner and enjoyed our 1-on-1 time uninterrupted.
Now, before you start feeling all sorry for my girls being "shipped off" to the grandparents, I'll tell you what they did. They went out to dinner and ice cream, visited GrandDa and Daddy Ben, went to a trampoline park, got pedicures and played until they fell asleep in their dinner. :)
Needless to say, they were NOT ready to come home. But, we sure missed our crazy girls!
This weekend, we have been soaking up the sun before another batch of cold weather comes through. HAPPY SUNDAY!
