Our Weekend Recap

What a weekend we had!  We seriously had one of the best weekends in a long time!!  It was kind of busy, but there was still time to relax a bit too.  

Saturday morning started off perfect by Brian coming home from work at 7am and bringing me coffee.  He knows the way to my heart! haha  =)  He headed to bed for a few hours while I hung around the house doing laundry and catching up on some of the usual "housework" stuff.  Emma and Alyx watched some tv and ate breakfast.   At 11:30 we left for Emma's basketball game.  Brian was a sport because he had worked 16 hours the day before, came home slept for about 3 hours and then went to her game with us.  He really didn't want to miss it because he hadn't been able to make it to a game or practice yet.  I love that Emma is loving sports!

That's my #11!  She along with all of her teammates did awesome!!  They played a tough team, and it was their first "away" game.  And of course she had her lucky socks on!

My niece Hanna and Alyx =)  Hannah wanted to come to Emma's game with us.  And Hannah is an excellent Basketball player!  She plays on the 5/6 travel team.  She's going to be awesome in the years to come!!  

Emma making a shot!  And yes, she made this shot =)  

And...they WON!!! =)

The BFF's!  Emma and Emma!

After the game we headed to my in-laws.  The NE Patriots/Ravens game.  Of course we were rooting for the Pats!  My mother in law made the biggest pot of homemade spaghetti sauce that I have ever seen.  I made a jalapeno popper dip, that by the way was amazing.  If anyone wants the recipe, let me know and i'll get it to you.  I also made a pan of Nutella brownies.  Yumm-o!  Our beloved Pats won of course! =)

Sunday morning we hung around the house in the morning.  Emma played in her room for quite a while with her new art set she got from her aunt for Christmas.

 I jokingly asked Emma if she wanted to get her ears pierced.  She of course said her standard answer "No Way!"  Well, a couple of hours later she came to me and said she really wanted to and wanted to know if we could do it that day.  I told her of course!!  We headed into town a couple of hours later, and Brian and I both figured she would back out once we got there. 

My twins! =)

 Once at Claires the lady working told us if we came back in about an hour there would be another person there and they could do them both at the same time.  Perfect!!  So we went to lunch, at our most fav restaurant in our area.

So so good!  The picture on the left is beef wrapped asparagus with an Asian sauce.  And then obviously our sushi.  

Alyx was trying to stab her puffs with the chopsticks, hehe

After lunch we headed back to the mall to Claires.  Emma was pretty nervous but kept telling us "I'm going to do this!"

This was before.  She became really really nervous when they started getting everything ready.  A tear or two may have been shed.  But they did it really really quick and when it was done she said "That didn't even hurt!!"  I was so proud of her!!  She's not exactly a dare devil at all, so this was a big step for her.  We had her pick out some really simple earrings.  They had a ton of earrings to choose from.  But where she has to keep these in for 6-8 weeks, I told her to pick something that she wouldn't get sick of.  So we went with simple cubic zirconia's. 

She looks so cute in them =)  And about 20 mins after getting them done the redness completely went away and she said they didn't hurt at all.  We cleaned them before bed and she did great with them!!

Emma wanted to facetime with everyone and their brother last night to show off her earrings =)  She's pretty proud of herself, and so are we!  She was excited to go to school this morning to show her teacher.

So there you have our weekend.  Hopefully yours was just as good.  And Happy Monday!!!
