weekend, shmeekend.

i'm a little sad writing this post...thinking of yet another weekend that has come and gone so quickly. i loved this weekend. it included some of my most favorite things:

a visit from my mom...aka "gammy"....which means a little time with family... and a little bit of this:


and of course this:



shopping with my mom...which means shopping for Ellie...which means Ellie got spoiled rotten yet again. (isn't this beanie to die for!?)...


lots of yummy Ellie smiles!...

Ellie hangin out in the bjorn to cheer on our cougars for yet another fabulous win...which means a very sweaty mommy...

and a very happy daddy!...

and a very worn out Ellie....who decided to hide from the crazy roaring fans underneath this little hat...


some freshly baked banana bread...with just enough powdered sugar to make it a delightful treat...


some good times and good laughs with friends at silly videos like this one (thanks Meg & Dave...this is still stuck in my head as i go to sleep tonight)
{p.s. beware, it WILL get stuck in your head too}

a newly-put-together toy (again, thanks Meg and Dave! it's a hit!)...

a very happy, curious Ellie...working very hard to figure out the mechanics of the toys...

a change of seasons to my favorite: FALL


lots of snuggling...and being adorned in baby gear...

and lots of yummy fresh baths to end our days!

good-bye weekend. come back soon!

xoxo

Finn has that baby einstein exersaucer and loves it! I let my sister borrow it for a while because I thought he didn't care about it anymore...but we just got it back and he is soooo excited! Let's just say that toy has become a great friend of his while I take my showers! Thank you baby einstein!

Thank You for removing the Ughgleee picture of Gammy. The world is a better place. Hey... is that band playing for real? Very Funny. Dad and I think you should definitely write children's books... and have Uncle Lane illustrate ? You are so funny. Loves.
