This weekend was one of those weekends I wish could have lasted awhile longer. The hubby has been working 70 hour work weeks and we haven't seen a whole lot of one another, so it was nice to spend time together as a family all weekend.
Friday evening my mom and I headed to a local Mexican restaurant for dinner and we each ordered a margarita............and we had no idea what we were getting into. ;)
|We thought we were ordering a standard margarita..... nope. I drank half and was already feeling it. Way to waste a good drink.|
Saturday my brother and his girlfriend and her father, who was visiting from Michigan, made the drove up for a local apple orchard's harvest festival. Last year was our first year going and Brandon was unable to make it. I was excited for him to be with us this time.
We filled a bag full of different varieties and he promises to make an apple pie, because we all know I would somehow screw it up so I will just leave it to him. He bakes it, I eat it. Win win!

There was a haunted room in the barn, and after making a quick check of it, I decided the kids could handle it. Jaxson would have nothing to do with it and Kendra went in at least 5 times. She kept saying, "ooh... I love spooky houses" and laughing. If you know me and my love for all things scary then you know where she gets it from. Jaxson, is a bit more cautious about that stuff, like his daddy. :)
I promise you all, it was very PG and not scary.
We finished off the afternoon with pizza, snacks, drinks and some football watching.
Brandon and I took the kids into town for some toy shopping (looking, really) and a treat of frozen yogurt.
I slept in Sunday and woke to homemade french toast and a hot cup of coffee. Yummy! We settled in to watch more football, shocker, I know!
That afternoon we went my mother in laws for an annual pumpkin carving party! Basically I ate snacks, drank cocoa, played with kids and let Brandon do his thing with the pumpkins. :)
