From Nothing To A Fun Filled Weekend!

Our weekend started with a Friday night date for just Gabe & I. Daddy went to a football game with grandpa so mommy & Gabe went to a Harvest Party that our Church was having. While we were there we got to make a few crafts, "tried" to learn how to square dance (Gabe was okay until it in voled touching someone that wasn't mommy), went on a Hay Ride, roasted marshmallows by an awesome fire & also had hot dogs. We had a great night. On Saturday daddy had to work so Gabe and I went to the Kalamazoo Holiday Parade with John's parents & Shenira. I love this parade because of the big balloons that they have in it. Someday I'm going to get to the Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York but until then this is as close as it's going to get. After the parade it was off to a birthday party for our niece Karis. They celebrated her 5th birthday at a roller skating rink that was reserved for just our group. This was so nice because you didn't have to worry about tons of people being there. Gabe loved roller skating and came out with only a small blister on his heal. Our Big 5 Year Olds! There is 7 months between Gabe and Karis and he loves it when they are both the same age.
After the birthday party Daddy took Gabe and Karis to the movies. It was suppose to be just Gabe and Daddy because Daddy had taken the older boys out last weekend and told Gabe he would take him this weekend. But Gabe being the kind cousin that he is wanted Karis to go with them as part of her present. We ended our Saturday night at a Jewelry Open House for a great friend and had tons of fun there.
Sunday we headed to Nana's house to work on a scrapbook and stayed there for the entire day. This is our life in a nut shell it's either go, go, go or nothing at all! The holidays are coming so things will for sure start to pick up. We are already going to have our first Christmas get together this Sunday! Can't wait to see family that we don't get to see very often but I also know that this will be a bitter sweet year as this is our first Christmas without John's Grandma and we all miss her very much.

  1. Sounds like a really fun weekend. I absolutely love that Frosty balloon from the K-zoo parade. I wish we had gone. Great photos, too. :)

    I enjoyed your company last Thursday. Thanks again for coming.
