Well, I finally got my relaxing morning that I always wanted :) I woke up at 9am, to find my kids watching TV quietly, having already fed themselves breakfast. Can't wish for a happier scene than that, right?
I got myself breakfast, then just spent the rest of the morning doing nothing. It was SO nice.
At 12:30pm, we got the kids some lunch (hot dogs on the grill), then hung out some more. Back at around 10am, I made the kids turn off all electronics, and just play. Some went to the park, some played at the neighbors house, some read books, just a quiet late morning/early afternoon. Eme was still at her friends house, and had plans there for the rest of the day. She was REALLY liking the "girls time" thingy :)
At 4pm, Captain America and I started to get ready for our date. We'd decided to go on a date on Saturday instead of Friday, since Friday was so hectic. I showered, and he cut all the boys' hair. They were starting to look a bit shaggy.
We got ready, and helped Jake and Tom make homemade pizza. They really did a fabulous job. They got the yeast and water together, letting it rise. Then added the flour and oil and salt. Then kneeded it until it was super soft. Tom did an outstanding job with it.
They got it on the pizza pans, then shredded the cheese, cooked the meat, spread the sauce, the meat, and the cheese. When we finally were ready to leave for our date, all they had to do was preheat the oven and pop it in.
We gave Jake directions for the evening, then headed out. We went to Applebees for dinner. We got the 2 for $20 deal. With cheese sticks, and we both got a steak. With a salad and steamed veggies. Pretty close to the ole diet. It was nice to sit and chat and just hang out together.
Next, we drove to the East side-ish area, and went to the Movie theater. Tinsletown. Where all the teenyboppers hang out. hehehe. We checked to see what was playing, and there was a showing of Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief starting in 5 minutes. Perfect! I paid, and Captain America parked, and we headed in. We get the military discount, so it's about $6 a ticket instead of $9.
The movie was really good. My kids are gonna LOVE it when they see it. We'll take them when it comes on post.
After the movie, we stopped by Walgreens to pick up my invitations to the St Patricks Day party. Remember how I had the Valentines Party? Well, we're having a St Patricks one too. SO excited! Should be a ton of fun.
We made it in through the gate without having a "random inspection", and home. It's almost 11pm, and I've got my Primary sharing time lesson all ready for tomorrow, am done blogging, and am now gonna go design a freebee for all of you fabulous ladies! Night!
