My Busy Weekend

My Busy Weekend

Well, what can I say. It was another one of those whirlwind weekends. This one started on Friday.

I was off work Friday so I could care for my grandson who has not been feeling well. Since my daughter did not have to be at work until later, my sister, who up from Florida with her husband, and I went shopping and had an early lunch before I had to rush back home. She treated me to Chinese.

Saturday I took two of the granddaughters who are  performing at Disney next month to their baton practice on Saturday afternoon.

These are my two granddaughters who be performing at Disney next month.

I spent the afternoon making a set of decorative bottles to donate to the silent auction at Sunday’s spaghetti dinner fundraiser.

 

 

 

These aren’t the ones I made but they are very similar to these.

Then on Saturday evening several family members went to my oldest daughter’s for a chili dinner and game night.

 

 

My sister fixed a large pot of chili with baked potatoes. The rest of us provided desserts. After we ate several of us played some of our favorite board games. We all had a great time.

Sunday, the girls that could needed to be at our last fundraiser early. They performed their Disney routine throughout the afternoon. When they were not performing they were waiting tables and competing for tips. The top waitress received a gift for her efforts. Which brought up some conflict for one of my granddaughters.

The younger of the 2 girls who were waiting tables was working more diligently then the older one, or so I was told. However, the older of the two, had more in tips due to the fact that her father had given her $100 to put in tip jar. That left her approximately $30 ahead of the younger one in the end. She was extremely upset. But, to put a better ending to the story, Ms. Winner, gave her cousin a gift from the bag that she received as a prize. Then to make this a frugal ending, Ms. Second Place, decided to give it to her younger cousin who is crazy about Tinkerbell. The gift was a Tinkerbell scrap booking kit. Ms. Loves Tinkerbell has a birthday coming up soon so we decided it would make a nice birthday present. Yeah!

We left the fundraiser at 4:00 with our prizes in hand and headed home. My sister and her husband came over and we decided on a take out pizza for supper. I was too beat to cook. 

 

As an final note, our fundraiser earned close to $2500 to add to total raised. It  has been a great fundraising year for us.

Tell me about your weekend. What did you accomplish?

Mother’s Day Weekend Recap- May 13, 2017

 

How did you spend your Mother’s Day weekend?

 

As usual, my weekend was a flurry of activity.

Because I knew Saturday and Sunday were going to be busy, I relaxed Friday after work. I really don’t do that often.

Early Saturday morning found me searching frantically for Shyla’s baton uniform. I had it hanging in her closet. After 20 minutes of searching I found it under the bunk beds in her brothers’ room. I have no idea how it got there. But, despite the lost uniform, my group of travelers arrived at their destination on time, which was a 3 hour drive.

Next on my agenda was to finish painting my bedroom. I only had about 1/4 of the room to complete which I did. After the painting was finish and the painting tools were cleaned, I took a bucket of Mr. Clean water and cleaned the top of the dressers and the bed. My dressers are very tall as is the headboard of my bed so I have to have the painting ladder to reach the top of the furniture. I also cleaned the fan. My bedroom has been spring cleaned. On to the rest of the house.

 

We took turns going to see play this weekend. His mother and our oldest daughter with her family, went to watch him perform Friday evening. Saturday,  my husband went to the afternoon performance.

The others had gone on the baton trip to an amusement park.

I went on Saturday evening. For the final performance, my husband and I went and took Dylan’s two siblings. Zayden could not sit still so papa took him and went back home.

After the final performance Sunday afternoon, Dylan, Shyla, and I stopped to buy flowers for my mother-in-law and myself. We took them home and had about 1/2 hour at home before we left to attend the cast party. It was held in the pavilion at the art colony. The weather was perfect and all the kids really enjoyed themselves. Pizza, cupcakes and ice cream was served and prizes were given out.

Dylan won 4 tickets to a Cinncinatti Red’s baseball game. He was beside himself with excitement.

Mom showed up from work and took the kids with her while my husband and I ran to complete some errands.

Later that evening my girls showed up at the house with a beautiful climbing flower and trellis for me.

 

It was a great weekend.
