weekends...


Sometimes weekends just fly by. This was one of those weekends. G must be in a growth spurt, as his sleep schedule is out of whack and he is getting very cranky in the afternoons. So we pulled back some plans and did more go with the flow close to home.

There was still a lot of fun. A holiday train show, karate, crafting,


botanical garden, making lots of goodies in the kitchen,


a tree farm visit, family movie night,


snow fort building (before the big melt),


and spending lots of time together.


*Just* busy enough that I managed to procrastinate most of my weekend cleaning! Well, sorta. But some weekends any excuse is good enough to put that off! ;)

Hope you had a nice weekend!

That's pulling back?! That's more than we do in a month. But of course, you are in the wonderful city of Madison where it's all practically at your fingertips. Sounds fun!

The shot of G looking up and the team of horses were both especially stunning. Beautiful!

We did have a great weekend! And I hear ya on the procrastination thing!
"No, gotta make x-mas gifts FIRST!"
I love those horses. I'm looking into a sleigh ride or carriage ride in town for the girls. Brings back that New Englandy feel to Anchorage!

Oooh! Where is that tree farm! That looks great! I live near Madison and would love to check that out. You have the best ideas!

It is Millers Tree Farm in Rio (NE of Madison). Not a bad drive if you are on the E/NE side of town. The horses are there on weekends to take you out through the farm. They have a Santa in the barn. Apple cider/cocoa/cookies in the shop. (Spunky) ponies. Hiking trails and lots of acreage to roam. My boys just wanted to see the horses and get lots of candy canes. :)

We had a verrrry lazy weekend. It was the snowstorm's fault, really.

I meant to clean this last weekend, but it just didn't happen.

I thought maybe I'd get it done today instead ... Ummm, yeah, about that ... ;)
