The Weekend Review

This past weekend was full of fun! Friday after school, the kids and I ran a few errands while waiting on Trumon to get home. After Friday afternoon family nap (a Friday ritual, because Trumon works a half day) we grilled steaks, and after dinner made smores out on the patio. Walker told me it was the best night ever. Saturday morning, we went out for breakfast, did a little shopping, and then headed off to a birthday party. The party was for Paige and Peyton White, six year old twin daughters of Trumon's best friend from high school, Jeff White. Jeff and his wife Ronda own a beautiful equestrian facility, Whispering Farms Equestrian Center in Prosper, TX, about 40 minutes away from where we live. Walker LOVES going to "Uncle Jeff's", he can't get enough of the horses, and lucky for him he is getting big enough to start riding. The party was so fun for the kids and parents. Jeff had several of his riding students doing pony rides, there was a hayride, Christmas ornaments made and LOTS of delicious food. Ronda is an incredible cook and hostess, any party she throws, even a six year old's birthday is fabulous!

On our way home we stopped in Aubrey for a quick visit with cousins Britley and Oliver, and Aunt Angel and Uncle Justin. Saturday night, Trumon and I had a real treat - Papa and Sugar took BOTH kids for the night! We headed to Southlake and enjoyed a nice dinner at Trulucks. It was wonderful to have an uninterrupted conversation and just be together with no distractions. Well, there was a little bit of distraction, or entertainment actually, at dinner. There was a table of obnoxious, middle aged couples with, as our waiter stated "much more money than class". We had a front row seat to their show, and it was very entertaining.

Sunday morning we slept in, did a few projects around the house and went to brunch. We went shopping for a few final presents and then headed to Arlington to pick up Walker and Lauren. Sugar's house is a Christmas wonderland, I always love going there during the holidays. Walker and Lauren are so blessed to have wonderful grandparents in their lives, and Trumon and I are very grateful to them for all of their help. Thanks again to Papa and Sugar for our date night.
