The weekend pictoral review

Friday night was date night of course...I was so pleased to see one of Steph's friends out on the floor dancing her heart out; The same friend that was fighting for her life against lupus just a few short years ago....She's a miracle...
Saturday morning I was up early to meet Ang for breakfast...after breakfast I brought my little friends Jason and Zoe home to play for a while...
Zoe dazzled me with her new found ability to blow a bubble....
While Jason dazzled me with his most soulful face...
We left our house and headed off to McDonald's to grab some lunch...
After we drove through...we ate at the icehouse...
where we met up with my friend Anne and her two little ones...Ethan and Emma. Finally, lunch was done and the little one's were off and running!
Efan Laaaambert (as Jason calls him) and Jason are two peas in a pod...this indoor playground is a place where they can be all boy...and just run their hearts out for two hours, only taking an occasional break for a drink of water and to catch their breath! Big kids can play too, so my precious one and Zoe had a great time...
Although we have been here quite a few times before, Emma was never really quite big enough to come along...until today... She was a little bit slow to warm up at first, but once she figured out all the ins and outs...she became an old pro quickly. They have a special section for children under 4...and that was much more her speed! It was such a super fun day. I love all those kids as my own (as I've shared here a million times) -- so it was a special treat for me.
and I think for them too :)
Saturday night, the honey and I had another date night...dinner and a speaker meeting. You see, this is the problem with my weekends off...when I really should be taking care of things around the house...I must prioritize and spend every possible minute with my friends and family...have I mentioned I cannot wait for school to be over? Ok, I digress...Sunday morning...I was off to church for an amazing sermon which I will share for you in another post...cuz it really was fabulous...then I got gas, put oil in the car, picked up my Sunday reading...
and was off to a scrapbook class at Sarah's where I made this terrific book...
What, you think the cover's cute? Check out the inside! I also picked up two of her prepackaged kits...
SERIOUSLY!! If you have not checked out her Cherry on Top website, ordered her kits, or taken her classes, you must! I pink puffy heart scrapbooking, but I just haven't had the time to be creative...so I let Sarah do it for me. She is a published scrapbooker and also my friend (lucky me) -- but even if you live...say in France... (ahem Catherine :) and you're a scrapbooker, you can buy her kits, pay through paypal, and get lots of terrific stuff at a great price!
Ok, so while I was in class the precious one called to see if I could take her to the mall *sigh...the sigh part it that yes I took her to the mall and yes she proceeded to lose her brand new phone she got for her birthday :( I had it turned off...so hopefully someone will turn it in. Otherwise...you need your lawn mowed? Your children babysat? She's looking for some work!
As we were leaving the mall to go to Grandma's to see my great nephews and niece (yes they're living there again...) guess who we ran into? Grandma! and my great nephews...and great niece! Pardon the scratches on her face...her older brother is just a bit aggressive :(
Whew! What a weekend it was...I still have homework to do, prep for work tomorrow, laundry (of course) and my Sunday reading...plus I haven't watched my TV shows for two weeks, so there's about 18 hours of TIVO waiting for me! Looks like I'll have to get up early again this week to catch up :) OH well...all in a day's work... Hope you had a wonderful weekend! I sure did.

Oh! Jacque, you're always so busy !
You haven't changed. I feel so lazy compared to you.

Concerning Scrapbooking stuff, I so regret but between blogging and scrapbooking I have to choose.
Not enouch time to devote time for both activities.
Your prepakaged kits looks great. And your book creation is fantastic. I think that having a class compel you to stop other activities (may I say chores). When you make scrapbook things at home, you're always interrupt.

to finish, tell that older brother to stop scratching her his little sister !
