What a Great Weekend

When I got up this morning I was feeling overwhelmed and frusterated because I had a sink full of dishes spilling out onto the surrounding counters, a laundry room so full of dirty clothes and bedding I could harldy open the door, floors that haven't been swept or vacummed (I won't even mention mopped) for two days, various toys and clothes strewn about the entire house...blah, blah, blah, you get the idea. I began to think to myself, "Why does this happen every weekend? Why can't I keep up on anything?" As I was thinking back at our weekend I couldn't think of any major task we got accomplished. Usually we will have a big project like builing shelves in the garage, or cleaning out the storage roombut not this weekend. We just stayed home, watched conference, and vegged. I needed a break from cleaning so I thought I'd download the camera. That's when I realized we had a pretty busy weekend. Here is a photo review of the fun stuff we did...
Built a block tower...
Drove up the mountain and took family pictures with the pretty fall leaves. Finally got Desirae's new bike for her very belated birthday...
Decorated for halloween, made and decorated sugar cookies, delivered (not the ones kids decorated/licked) said cookies to a few ward families...
After looking through our weekend of pictures I'm not at all annoyed by having to clean all day long on Monday. We are so lucky to have two full days to spend together, just enjoying each other and strengthening those relationships. I am so blessed with such a supportive husband that even if he does come home after a long day at work and the house is a mess, all he says is something like, "Looks like you had a fun day playing with the kids today." So hey, maybe I'll take a break and play with the kids for a while. The dishes and laundry can wait.
