Maybrie has two weeks off of school for fall break. Our first week has been pretty busy and fun-filled. It was a rainy week, so we found a lot of things to do indoors.
Monday: We enjoyed a lazy morning, colored Halloween pictures and Thomas practiced cutting with scissors. We went shoe shopping and bought both Thomas and Maybrie new winter shoes... Maybrie loves her new boots! We picked up Papa Murphy's pizza for dinner, and since it was way too much for our little family we had the Maxwell's join us. The kids always have so much fun together, we love having them as neighbors. Brian and I also got to Face Time with our dear friends the Gillespie's who live in WA.
Tuesday: We went to the Children's Museum with the Maxwell's and Kirkwood's. It was pretty packed, but we still managed to have a good time. That evening we went to the church for the annual Chili Cook-off.
Wednesday: We went to story time at the library and then I was able to get caught up on housework while the boys napped and Maybrie had her friend Lilly over for a play date.
Thursday: The kids got to play at the Maxwell's while I went to a doctor appointment and that night I got to go to girl's night at Applebee's. It was fun to be out and enjoy girl talk.
Friday: We went to Zoo Boo as a family, which is always a fun event.
Saturday: I spent the day at the church for our Relief Society Super Saturday craft activity. I was in charge of personalized glass etching on casserole dishes. It was by far the most popular project, and after cutting out 20+ stencils with my Cricut cutting machine... I am ready to take a break from it for a while! It was great interacting with so many awesome sisters and I was happy to help so many complete a project that was inexpensive and loved. I guess the craftiness of the day finally pushed me to complete a project I have been dying to do for a year now... bookshelves out of rain gutters. It was pretty inexpensive and easy and I LOVE the way they look, how many books they will hold, and how it saves space in our small home. Thank you Brian for helping me do it!
