Crazy Busy Weekend - October 29, 2007

Saturday morning, I got up and went grocery shopping (without kids!!). When I got home it was time to get the kids in their Halloween costumes for Hannah's school party. Elijah wasn't quite old enough to do most of the activities, but he enjoyed the playground. We came home and ate lunch, and Pete decided he needed a nap. The church that the kids and I have been attending were having a party, so we went to that as well. It was on a farm about 30 minutes from where we live (it was out in the sticks!!). There were hayrides, a bonfire, lots of activities for the kids, and trick or treating. We got home around 4:30, and we were TIRED. We ate dinner, gave the kids a bath, and put them to bed. Somehow in the 30 minutes after their bath, Hannah and Elijah completely destroyed the toy room. They literally dumped everything on the floor... every shelf, bucket, and box was empty.
Sunday morning, the kids and I went to church. Pete took Hannah and Elijah to the park for a bit in the afternoon. Hannah spent the rest of the day cleaning the toy room (no TV until it was completely clean). She finished around 7pm, almost exactly 24 hours after it was destroyed.
It doesn't sound like much written out, but we were gone all day Saturday and more than half of Sunday. I need a weekend to recover from our weekend!!
Pete has the camera, so I can't post pictures of the kids' costumes yet. Elijah was Tigger (for the second year in a row), and Hannah was Princess Hello Kitty.
