Fun Weekend..

This weekend was pretty fun! Friday night we dropped the big kids off at my mom and dads house for the NIGHT and dropped Rachel off at Arnolds' parents house. We actually got to go out ALONE! It was so crazy, it was like we were dating again! We went to pizza hut and had dinner. So nice just to sit together and not have to worry about feeding kids. After that we went to Target-- cant have a night out w/out going to Target ;-) I finally finished up last-min shopping for the kids' Easter Baskets. Then we went to walk around the mall for awhile. I wanted to get my haircut but we waited in line forever and i got tired of waiting.. so oh well. When we went back to pick up Rachel she said MAMA for the first time! I was sooo excited! I had been trying to get her to say it forever. :)

Saturday morning we got up early so we could go to a Big kids' consignment sale in Morganton. Some friends had told me about it and ARnold said hed take me. We got some breakfast on the way. It was nice only having Rachel to deal with, it was a PACKED house! Rachel sat contently in her stroller the whole time. Lots of people came up to tell her how cute she was :) Anyway, i didnt find much at all, I was pretty disappointed. I found a few outfits for Rachel (not like she needed anymore!) and ONE top for Brooke, at least it was cute. AFter that we went to another consignment sale down the road from our house-- it was half off day and i actually DID find some stuff there. A few more outfits for the kids, a few outfits for a friend whos due next month, a backpack for Caleb, some shoes for him, and a few puzzles and books. So i was happy i went :) we also stopped by this Garden center in town and ARnold picked out some tomato plants. We plan on having a garden this year, I think that will be something fun to do as a family.

After that we went and picked up the kids. They had had a great time at their Grandparents house! they slept in the room that used to be my bedroom :) we got some lunch, then came home and they took naps. Later that night we went to Shrimp Fest which i already wrote about in another blog :)

Sunday morning we all woke up late and we RUSHED to get ready for church.. we were still a little late but I was surprised we got ready that fast! Rachel stayed in the nursery again,shes finally start to warm up to the idea, i think :) After church we went to a lunch that the youth was having to earn money for a trip. It was lasanga, salad and bread. Rachel had her first taste of Mac & cheese andshe loved it! She was grabbing a handfull before the plate even hit her highchair.. we all cracked up at her :) Also, the preachers got PIES in the face! it was sooo funny. For a $1, anyone could go give them a pie in the face. We tried to get the kids to but they were shy, so Arnold did it instead :)

After church we all took naps. Arnold and I read alittle bit out of the LOVE DARE book.. we are doing the LOve Dare and are on Day 20 or so I think... its going pretty well :)
