Our Labor Day Weekend


Our Labor Day weekend was very layed back this year. We didn't do a whole lot, which is kinda nice sometimes.

Friday evening we just hung out at home. The remains of Hurricane Isaac came through St. Louis over the weekend, (which is weird to say that we had a hurricane in St. Louis) so the whole weekend was pretty soggy. Jake fixed dinner and we just relaxed at home. 

Saturday was much of the same. We just spent the day at home, doing some cleaning and snuggling with my sweet little boy. :-) I even got to take about a 2 1/2 hour nap! Yay. Jackson started getting sleepy at around 11 that morning, so we both cuddled up in bed and took a long nap. It was the perfect day for it since it was so rainy. 

Jackson and I hanging out at home Saturday.

Sunday we went to church and then after church we had food and fellowship in the church dining hall, which is always fun. :-) Later that evening we went to my MIL's house for dinner and to get caught back up on So You Think You Can Dance. :-)

Then yesterday Jake golfed with my Dad, so my mom and I went and did some shopping!! I needed to get started on buying some things for Jackson's 1st birthday party! I was able to get all the scrapbook paper I'll need to make his banners and decorations. I also got a couple tablecloths for the kids table and some little mickey mouse clubhouse cups for the kids. I also found the red and black tissue paper I'll need to make some pom poms for over the cake table, but I was unable to find some yellow tissue paper. I wouldn't think that would be a hard color to find, but I looked at 2 different stores and neither one had it. I'll have to keep looking. :-) I also got some tulle to tie his banner together and for anything else I might need it for. So I feel pretty good about getting a head start on some things for his party. :-)

Then yesterday evening we just hung out at home. While watching an episode of Backyardigans with Jackson, he started cracking up laughing at one of the characters on the show. It was so cute that I rewound it and videoed him so you all could see how cute it was. I must have rewound it about 5 or 6 times, just because it was so cute! He would laugh so hard he would fall down on the floor. I've never seen him laugh at something on t.v. before. It was adorable.

I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend! Now it's back to work. :-(

Yellow tissue paper... I know I bought osme in a multi-colored pack from Walmart... It came with all of the primary colors.

And Jackson is so cute watching tv like a big boy.

I'm glad you got a head start on his party-- it will be here soon. :)

Isn't it insane that we need to start working on their first birthdays already!? Time is just flying.

Glad you had a relaxing long weekend.

Your weekend sounds a lot like ours! Lots of lounging around with the baby in our jammies. Naps in the rain. A little shopping. Such a nice way to spend the long weekend!
