It's Friday! Joining up with Jen and the rest.
Some fun end-of summer things that the kids have been up to
(we love buying and using Groupons to get these fun activities for like half price!):
|Indoor glowing mini-golf.|
|Sweeney Family September birthdays party.|
|Indoor Trampoline Park.|
Can it be true that Pope John Paul II will be canonized in April? I hope so! Although, I will have to get all new JP2 memorabilia...
But that's a great problem to have!
Birthday Season is coming! Eamon is the end of Sept and then Andrew and Phil are the beginning of October. The boys made their lists over the summer, they are so excited!
|Eamon's up first! And between his godparents and Gammy and us, I think he's getting all he desires this year!|
I have had so many cravings lately.
Malassadas (or fried dough for you non-Portuguese speakers):
Kraft Mac & Cheese (even though Phil makes a delicious homemade version):
Swedish fish, red only:
Why do I take so many terrible food pictures? I'll never know.
Linking up with Katrina's Womb Service for this.
Soccer season has started! We have 4 games on Saturday, and the three older boys have weekly practices from about 5-6. I thought there would be a good chance that at least two of them would end up having practice on the same day, but nope! Lucky us, we have to be at the field on Tues, Wed, and Thurs during dinner time.
|I thought if I signed my kids up for soccer, I would be a soccer mom like her. Hasn't happened yet.|
My friend, Laura (who doesn't blog anymore) had a surprise 30th birthday party thrown by her sister, Bethany (who also doesn't blog anymore). It was an 80's theme, and so much fun!
|Bethany looked so 80's but Laura didn't know to dress up because obviously, it was a surprise!|
I even got to meet Ellen for the first time, who thankfully does blog! Although I'm not sure the impression I made on her as I was feeling pretty sick that night. Ah well, I'm awkward even when I feel 100% :)
|My attempt at that decade.|
I put tons of purple eye makeup on, and when Maggie saw me, she said "You look so pretty!" and when the boys saw me they giggled and said "What's wrong with your eyes?" Ha!
Plans for the weekend include soccer games, watching the Patriots destroy the Bills in the first season game, a high school football game, a birthday party, and maybe I'll finally get around to cleaning the bathrooms. Maybe.
