Our weekend was good.  Max had duty Friday, so it was just the kids and I all day and night.  He came home Saturday morning, to fall fast asleep in bed for the morning.  The kids and I ran errands and played outside.  That afternoon, we got ourselves prettied up for the Marine Corps Ball.  

Sunday morning, the kids were up EARLY, which felt even earlier after staying up way too late celebrating at the ball.  We had a quiet, relaxing day - playing at the park, watching movies, resting, and eating yummy food together.  Max and I put the kids to bed that night, and were asleep by 9pm!  

Max had the day off Monday, and he sent me out by myself for a few hours.  I got to go window shopping, have lunch with some girlfriends, get coffee, and enjoy some quiet time.  I came home to find that Max had done laundry, made the bed, cleaned the carpet, cleaned the kitchen, and picked up the toys.  I think I should make a point to go out by myself more often ;)  So blessed by that time out by myself and so appreciative of my sweet husband!  

Looking forward to a quiet week this week with the kiddos, and happy it's a shorter week - already eager for another weekend with Max - especially because the Christmas decorations are coming out this Saturday - can't wait for the music to be cranked up, cinnamon rolls to be baked, and boxes of festive decor to be cracked open and put out to enjoy!  

How about you?  How was your weekend?  And what are you looking forward to this week?
