Weekend Wrapup

Even though today is dreary and rainy and our little girl woke up with a fever, I'd say this was a great weekend!  And KW's fever is forcing us to wrap it up with a lazy day inside, and I can't say I'm complaining!

Here are some pics from my phone over the last several days.

You know you're bathing at Mimi's house when your bath toys are empty thread spools.  Who knew they could be so much fun, though?!

Lately, I've had to keep a close eye on my new house shoes.  I got these for Christmas and it seems Katie bug loves them as much as I do.  If I accidentally leave them unsupervised, she steals them from me!

Poor baby girl saw me throw her pink blankie into the dryer straight from the washing machine and, when I wouldn't let her have it, had one of the biggest meltdowns I've seen.  It was a rookie Mom mistake; I now know better than to let her see it going into the laundry!

She has done such a good job of taking care of Baby Doll lately that I think she's going to make a great big sister.  Friday she made sure Baby Doll didn't go hungry and even let her drink her orange juice straight from the jug!

Will I ever stop taking pictures of her sleeping?  I'm not sure that I will...at least not any time soon.

We had the big kids at our house this weekend.  It's funny how often we catch them playing with Katie Wynn's toys.  :)  After dinner Saturday night, I created our own version of Supermarket Sweep to justify their fascination with KW's grocery cart.  They were super excited about it as we laid out all the rules and defined the course.  I created shopping lists for them both, which would be waiting for them on top of the tiny pantry, and then we tossed a coin to see who would go first.  Anna was up and got set at the starting line.  She made her way quickly around the course and shopped pretty fast, but ended up getting a 15 second penalty for a banana falling out of her cart.  Rats!

Wyatt saw Anna's banana snafu and made sure to hold on to his fruits.  I just knew he was going to get penalized for leaving stray groceries on the ground, but he picked them up at the last minute.  He did get a 5 second penalty, though, for not closing one of the pantry doors.

After the penalties were calculated in, Anna was announced as the winner of Round 1 of Supermarket Sweep!

Now, you know we couldn't let them have all the fun.  Matt and I decided to go head to head so Anna and Wyatt worked together on our grocery lists and the game course.  I won the coin toss so Matt had to go first.

He completed the course with no penalties but...so did I.  :)

It was a close run but, well, my dear husband got beat by his sweet wife.  :)

Before calling it quits, we had another round that all four of us competed in to see who the real winner of the night was.  

Y'all.  I smoked them all.  That's right, this five-months-pregnant mama blew them away.  Matt was the closest coming in at 6 seconds slower than me, but Anna and Wyatt weren't even close.  I guess we know who plays with the groceries the most.  :)

If you're wondering how we could spend all evening playing with Katie Wynn's toys and not even include her, let me just say that the original rules involved her riding in the cart during each round, which definitely would've changed the way we were able to turn corners. :)  Unfortunately, she wasn't really feeling it.  She was much more content to just sit and watch all the excitement.

Don't be surprised if you're ever over for dinner and we ask if you want to play a little Supermarket Sweep!

Sadly, our fun came to a halt this morning when Matt noticed Katie Wynn was burning up during breakfast.  Poor little sweet pea was rocking a good fever.  I knew she didn't feel well when, after getting out of her high chair, she just laid down on the floor beside my chair while I finished eating.  Bless her heart!

We sent Matt and the big kids off to church and the two of us settled in to spend the morning resting.  Katie bug ended up sleeping on me for about three hours!  I hate that she didn't feel well but I sure did love getting to hold her all morning, even if both my legs and hands fell asleep and I thought my bladder was gonna burst.  :)

After a couple doses of Tylenol, I think we've gotten her fever under control.  She has spent most of the day asleep, but maybe she needed that to recharge.  I just hope she doesn't feel recharged around 2:00 in the morning and want to play!

Matt just told me that it's Superbowl time.  Guess that means I'll head out to the living room and at least be in the same room as where the game is on.  Don't worry, I have a list of things to work on in between the commercials so I won't get bored.  :)
