we did lots of sleeping this weekend.  much needed sleeping.  we had a late night on friday with lots of friends over for a bbq and the boys didn't go to bed until 10:30pm..and only "slept in" until 7:30am the following morning.  we all napped on saturday and caught up.  we suspect our oldest needs extra sleep right now anyway in order to keep happy and healthy.  today is a new day.  we are rested and ready to enjoy.  it looks like it will be another amazing, sunny and warm day.

week before last, max was on winter break and i took the week off.  kind of.  i still kept up with the emails but it makes it easier once you go back to work anyway and i didn't mind.  max had fun attending "gymnastics camp" from 9-12 four mornings in a row.  charles was there (in addition to some other kids from school) so that made it all great fun.  those mornings, i took some time to get errands done but also some time for just me...i got a pedicure one day, went to the chiropractor another, got an hour and a half of shopping in and a facial too!  it was simply awesome.  in the afternoons, max and i got to hang out together and we really needed that.  on friday afternoon, max and brent headed to tahoe for another ski trip while finn and i stayed home.  it was nice to also have some one-on-one time with my little guy.  we went out for breakfast, visited the playground, enjoyed dinner out and napped together.  i had a relaxing but also productive week off.  it all wore off the following week when brent went to dallas on business tuesday through friday!  the first morning was pretty bad to say the least..i became a less than awesome mom when things didn't seem to come together AT ALL  with the boys getting ready in time for school but from there, things improved.  the boys had a couple of really great days and evenings and were rewarded with "movie night" one evening and an ice-cream outing another night.  daddy is back home as of last night and the boys couldn't be happier.
