Our Weekend

Saturday morning Matt took the kids to go get donuts and pick up some dog food for Tank so that I could sleep in and get ready by myself.  Things like that are such a blessing (and I am so thankful)because normally I am up and getting ready with two busy children on the loose. ( : 
Then we all loaded up and went to the MDA (muscular dystrophy association) walk to support two sweet families that we know.  The Smith Family (above) are part of our small group and we just love them! 
 The Walker family is also very dear to us!  Whitney is Reid's KDO teacher, Paris is in my KDO class, and both Jordan and Dallas are in the Children's Church where Matt and I serve.  The whole family is just precious!
 Flexing our muscles.  The slogan is "make a muscle, make a difference." 
 The Walker team said they were dressing bright and funky so this is what Lilly wore.  Please notice the Cinderella glass slippers...she begged to wear them and wore them that entire day...and pretty much any other time we have gone any where since Halloween.  She just loves those shoes! 
 And Matt wore his "HEY" Uncle Si shirt. (Duck Dynasty)  We just love that show!  So excited for new episodes tonight!!  But I am digressing...
 They had face painting for the kids.
 Or hand painting for Lilly.  Ha! 
 They had these pig races.  It was funny and the kids really enjoyed that! 
 Some ring toss.  Reid would throw both of them at the same time.  On his third try he just walked over and put them both on one of the two liters (haha--before I edited this I had typed two leaders).  Gotta love it! 
 Lilly making it!  Go Lilly!
 Here they are asking Dallas why he walks in the MDA walk.  He has such a sweet heart! 
 Here Jordan is (Dallas' brother) holding a sign that says, "I love you Dallas!"  Is that not the most precious thing ever??
 The Walker family (team Walk this Way) won most spirited!! 
 After the walk Jennifer and I decided to go check out the NWA Holiday Expo (like a boutique show).  Matt and Cody took the kids to our house to watch the Hog game that was recording.  I just have to brag on Matt and say that he wanted to go this walk even though the Razorbacks were playing!  He just recorded the game and watched it when he got home and didn't ever complain.  I LOVE his heart for our friends (and people)!!
 I napped with the kids on Saturday and Matt watched some football.  Then we just hung around the house and watched the Alabama/LSU game.  Reid came up to me and said, "I want to go to Target!"  And I was like, "Yesssss!!!"  So Reid and I went for a little Mommy and me time to Target. 
 Since it was just us two he got to ride on the back of the cart.  At one point he said, "Mommy stop!!"  I have to look at this!  It is so beautiful!  Do you see this beautiful star??"  (shirt pictured below)
 He even got off of the cart and walked beside me and we went and raided the Halloween clearance aisle.  We came home w/a super cheap Buzz Lightyear and Woody costume, a musical Cinderella wand, some toys for Tank, and a pumpkin that sings Thriller by Michael Jackson every time you walk by it.  The pumpkin was a mistake.  While cute in the store...5,000 Thriller songs later...I regret that purchase.  ( ;  Rookie mistake!!  Matt said, "Sara!  That is a grandparent buy...not a parent should have known better!"  Haha! 
 Sunday we got up and went to church for the service that we serve in the Children's ministry.  Thanks to time change--we all made it.  On time!! After church we went to Susan's Restaurant for a yummy brunch.  This is one of my favorite pictures of Matt and Lilly!  I just love it!!
 Reid put his chocolate milk cup inside the coffee cup and he was filling like pretty big stuff.  That afternoon I napped with the kids again.  We went back to church for the service we attend that night and then had dinner with The Dalmut's.
 We came home and were getting ready for bed and as I was walking into Lilly's room I saw this.(picture above)
 And this was the other side.  Ha!  Apparently she picked up on my "just add googly eyes" decoration tip from Halloween.  ( : 
And then I went into the bathroom to check on Reid and found him like this.  Ha!  There is never a dull moment.  We had a good weekend and have adjusted pretty well to the time change.  However, since it is dark at 5:00 my motivation to do things in the evening has been lacking.  I hope you are all having a great week!

The time change has messed with me too. I think that since it is dark when I get home from work, that means put on my pj's and snuggle under the warm covers.
