Weekend Plans

My husband has a four day weekend this weekend, so we decided Elliott should, too. :)  Today is actually my birthday as well, and last year my dad passed away on my birthday.  We're trying to keep the day happy and upbeat, but we will see how well that works.  So far it's going okay.

Elliott gave me the birthday presents he's been hiding from me first thing this morning.  I already knew what they were, since I was with them when they bought one of them, I was actually the one to order another, and the third one I specifically asked for and showed everyone the picture.  Haha.  I guess Elliott was afraid I would read the book early if I knew where it was, though. ;)

My husband is cooking breakfast right now.  He's making pancakes from scratch, which is a new experience for him.  I almost always make them from scratch, though, so I had a couple recipes for him to look at.  Elliott's still unsure how that will work out.

My sister should be here soon, too.  We're going to all go out for lunch together, and maybe do a small amount of shopping this afternoon as well.  We're trying to do something to keep us from sitting at home all day, so the day will be easier.

Then the rest of the weekend will include farmers markets in the morning, followed by other grocery shopping, church on Sunday, and a sleepover on Sunday night.  We should also be moving our bedroom furniture back into our bedroom at some point this weekend!  Carl finished the floor in there last night, and now just has to attach the trim and we will be good to go.  That is so exciting for me!  That's another step closer to having a classroom finished, and having all the extra stuff out of my living room so I can attempt to keep it clean again. ;)

He looks so much bigger than the picture on your sidebar now. A young man instead of a little guy. :) He's a cutie too!

Happy Birthday to you!!

Happy belated birthday Carla! I hope you enjoyed the rest of your day as well. I am sure that is difficult to have to be happy about your birthday, while so many emotions are coming to the surface.
Wow, Elliott sure has grown. Isn't it amazing, how they are becoming young men little by little?

Happy belated birthday! You got some great gifts! I didn't know Divergent was out on dvd already. I'm going to have to go get that myself. I've been wanting to see it.
