Tab Got Home Early!

That’s all I can remember about the weekend.  Tab got home early!  hahaha!
Thursday afternoon a first happened….Nixon invited a neighbor boy (who lives about five houses down and we didn’t even know his name!!) to come play in our yard.  He was way older than Nix but so sweet!!  Crazy that my kiddos are old enough to play with big kids!!

Friday night was Movie Night at church.  They showed The Jungle Book in the kid’s theater.  We all brought pillows and blankets and it was a super casual night.  We took Aiden and he and Nix had a blast hanging out!  We met some friends earlier for dinner and then hit up the movie.  I learned a couple things…1. Bowen does NOT know how to whisper.  🙂  2. In a group setting like that where there are no formal seats, my kids will not be still to watch a movie.  hahahaha!  Luckily it was super laid back so it wasn’t a big deal.

These two stuck together.  The rest of our group was BOYS!!

Saturday morning…the kiddos and I went through all their toys.  We trashed broken stuff and have a huge pile of stuff to donate.  This girl found the time to make a robot head for herself.

While this kid worked on his application for the show, Hoarders!!  I predict Nixon is on that show in the years to come!  He had the HARDEST time parting with any toy!  It was so funny hearing what his excuse would be to keep a toy he NEVER plays with.

Saturday afternoon this guy arrived!!  The babysitter came over and we enjoyed a good ole fashioned Saturday night date!

We sported our Manda Strong shirts yesterday at church.  Go HERE to orders yours today!

Family of five all in our Manda Strong gear! 

I volunteer at the Badge Desk and can see the playroom through the windows.  I was trying to hide from Bowen because he usually isn’t a fan of seeing me.  But…I had to sneak out to capture this.  The big boys, Nixon and Smith, were jumping up over the side to see Bowen.  Bowen was LOVING it!!

We had a GREAT weekend!!  Hope you did too!!

    Awwww! Sweet little guys jumping to see B! And I'm super impressed with E's robot head! Next time we're together remind me to show you a video I took of Carter a couple of years ago when we were trying to get rid of some of his toys. Heart-breaking and HILARIOUS. 🙂

    I love that you were able to enjoy a date night out with Tab this weekend! I think a guest post by him would be interesting, like what is a weekend like for him when he's on the road? Or how did he get involved in officiating? Or what the heck do those letters on the refs' jerseys/uniforms mean?? Lol 😉
