Weekend Recap- First Post of 2016

Hey Monday! 

These were my sentiments last night...

Anyway, we had a great LONG weekend but are actually excited and ready to get back into the swing of things! 

We spent NYE by having pizza, fondue and then watching movies. The girls counted down to midnight at 8PM and then headed to bed shortly after. Will and I stayed up and watched the NYE shows and then headed to bed ourselves shortly after midnight. I know, we're crazy!

NYE Countdown

I mean, this picture is everything. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 

After we partied hard to welcome in 2016, we woke up on the first day of the year and headed to Flix Brewhouse to catch the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie.

And then later, during quiet time......
This may be one of the times when I ask WM what HIS child is doing....

Friday evening was spent watching the Hawkeyes game and then pretending to be really sad for WM that they lost. =) Hehe. No, really, they had an amazing season and it was too bad they lost so badly in the Rose Bowl. 

Saturday morning was spent running errands. We hit Target (that T word again), Trader Joes, and HyVee. 

My shopping helpers 

We got home and the girls camped out in the kitchen. Sophia had asked for a snack when we got home and I got busy putting away groceries and forgot. I looked over and found them like this:

What patient girls! =)

While Saidey settled in for quiet time, the big girls headed to Charming Charlie and Target (dang, that T word again!!) 

Saturday night was spent binging on Gilmore Girls and lounging.

Sunday was our productive day. We put away all the Christmas decorations and cleaned up and worked on laundry.

Who else feels that after all the decorations are put away, your home feels so bare?! Made me want to redecorate! =)

After we were finished cleaning up, we settled in for lunch and some quiet time. I had a few things to do in the afternoon and so I was able to get those done while they rested. 

Look at those girls! GAH! 

We had a crock pot soup recipe, which I found here
I follow her blog, Mix and Match Family as well as her food blog! 

It was yummy but I was the only one who thought so. Good thing I like leftovers! 

I didn't think to get a pic but here's one from the site

That's it for now! Happy Monday!
