My Weekend Shenanigans!

I am linking up this week for Sami's Weekend Shenanigans blog hop. Here is what happened this weekend around my house....

Friday night was movie night at my daughter's school. They invited the families to come and enjoy a  movie on the gym floor. We brought our blanket and enjoyed refreshments while just the two of us enjoyed the movie together. They were playing The Great And Powerful Oz

Saturday was a really busy day for us. We had to get up early because my daughter was participating in the Pumpkin Fun Run that morning. So we had to get there early and all signed in. There were lots of kids participating in this event.
They had some fun things going on before the event. She got to pet a real horse and sit inside a real fire truck. She even got a temporary tattoo! Even her brother came to help his sister win the race :)

After the run, we finally got to head to the store and pick up a screen door for the back door. I have been wanting one since we moved in because of the cooler weather that has been hitting us, the breeze makes the house feel so amazing and refreshing and aired out. The husband and the maintenance guy installed it and put it up. I'm debating whether I need to paint it or just leave it.

Sunday was pretty much just a pajama day. We just kind of cleaned up a bit, did some laundry, I went to the store for a minute to grab the husband something for his lunch at work tonight and basically the rest of the day was helping the daughter with a bit of homework and sitting around.
I took the kids outside in the yard to play for a bit. We just stayed in our pajamas and no one had their hair done. That's ok though. Not everyday has to be primped and pretty.
The baby played in his pack-n-play out under a tree while I sat next to him. My daughter sat in the driveway and made a hop scotch board with her sidewalk chalk and some other little doodles.
The the kids played in the yard together for a bit. It didn't last long as the baby started to eat the grass and then get mad at me when I took it away.

And that was my weekend. What did you do?


  1. Sounds like you all had a fun weekend. We went to a move screening on Saturday as well as a little shopping at Target. Sunday we went hunting for an open car shop to get our oil changed. That ended up with a trip to Wally World.

  2. Sounds like a great weekend with lots of fun! Ours was awesome with family time.... all except for the Packer loss yesterday.... boohoo! Happy week girl!

  3. I sort of want to see this Oz film myself Rebecca, I've heard nothing but good things about it and I'd like to check it out. Glad to see and hear that you had such a great weekend, you did so many fun things!

  4. Rebecca, your guest post is ON girl ;)

    Thanks for participating!

  5. Sounds like a really fun packed weekend!! Hahah, B always wants to play with her big sister outside too, but always eats grass so I have to pick her back up, which always starts a huge tantrum. I forget when they stop trying to eat stuff off the ground... Lol.

  6. I love the movie in the gym idea!
