This weekend has been very low key. It's been a welcome respite from the crazy weeks we've been having and because it's a short week for Mr. Howard and I in terms of work, we really tried to take advantage of doing a whole lot of nothing! But it also seems that when we clear our schedules from a lot of commitments, the days tend to go by very slowly for me. So I tried to come up with a few new things for us to do as a family.
Saturday night, Mr. Howard and I also had a nice date night. We put the kids to bed really early (bribed them with red velvet cookies), and enjoyed a nice dinner just the two of us. I made homemade Enchilada Soup with fresh bread and we drank coronas. Heaven. After dinner, we watched One Day, which neither of us had ever seen before, by the fire.
On Monday Connor did not nap. He was REALLY struggling with his sleep and I didn't want the babies to be woken up by him. So I thought I'd be "inventive" and distract him with a video. I have eight million videos of the kids, but I really don't ever get in front of the video camera ever - so it's nice every once in a while to be able to look back and remember I was actually there! He was in a VERY silly mood. He is so bright and some of the things he says just CRACK me up! In the afternoon, after I took this video, he asked Mr. Howard if he could borrow the car to go to a friend's house. NO JOKE! I mean, seriously. Daddy asked him how he knows where his friend lives, and he named a street and gave us directions (no idea how he knows that street name!) but he even told us which direction to turn on the road and which side of the street the house is on.
