Our Weekend

This is our weekend in random pictures.

We ended up getting quite a bit of snow. Jenni & I got all bundled up and explored the woods around the house. We made snowman, juggled snowballs, threw a couple snowballs at each other and at the snowman. We followed animal tracks to try and find their homes, but with no success.

Old Clothes and New Clothes

We went to two concerts this weekend and Jenni didn't have to perform at any of them. I think she enjoyed the break. We did the Seattle Symphony and a small house concert of good friend Joe Bongiorno and his friend David Nevue. At the house concert, a candle fell off of a wall sconce and dripped wax all over Jenni's white coat and outfit and her hair. At least her hair didn't catch on fire, that would have been bad.

Jenni got the much anticipated, required maturinty shirt. She was excited about this.

This is me during nap #3. I have to put in a disclaimer. I'm normally not a napper, but this was a unique weekend. I was napping on our new sheepskin from Grandma & Grandpa Lindsay from their mission in New Zealand.

This is Jenni making Tacos. She had a headache so she took an ice pack and wrapped it in a towel and tied a Christmas ribbon around her head to secure the ice pack. I thought it was pretty funny.

Jenni made her delicious ginger snap cookies during my 1st of 3 naps this weekend.
Jenni decorated our Christmas tree. Doesn't it look beautiful. Notice the stockings hung with care above the fireplace, I mean wall heater.

Things Neglected
This is our sad attempt at doing laundry. At least the clothes made it into the laundry room. I'm just not sure which ones are clean and which ones are dirty anymore. Time to start sniffing.

I totally forgot to feed my fish all weekend long. Talk about Fast Sunday.
The battle of the dishes raged this weekend. I belive I was on strike this weekend. Most likely talks will resume between the two parties and the dishes will be done soon, before that strange smell starts to appear.
We were quite certain we would not survive the weekend without grocery shopping as you can see from the evidence. Somehow we both have stuffed bellies and we ate like royalty this weekend despite not getting the grocery shopping done.
I was supposed to pull everything out of the storage area and put the carpet down and reorganize the storage area. As you can see that didn't take place.

I don't think Jenni touched her piano this weekend. It was probably a much needed break for her. I'm sure she'll be practicing away throughout this week for her concert this weekend.

I was supposed to get a haircut this weekend. As you can see that didn't take place. The naps won out.

Fun times

I played church ball Saturday morning. There was no blood drawn unlike last week. So it was good.

Jenni worked on her new Christmas song while I napped (nap#3 about 1 hour after nap#2). It's turning out quite nicely. The song that is. I'm sure she'll have it up on myspace in the next few days so you'll have to stop over and give it a listen.
I played Mega Man on my old school Nintendo while Jenni worked on her new song. I was much better at this game as a 12 year old. I couldn't beat one level this time.
We watched the Christmas Devotional at home on the internet (nap #2). I did 500 bicups curls with the 3lb weights while watching the devotional. I'm super strong now.

This was our weekend in pictures. Nothing too exciting, but a true look inside a lazy weekend at our home. Don't worry, if you are coming to visit soon, we will clean up and you'll be treated like proper guests. There will be no evidence of such a weekend lived.

How was your weekend?

I went to a Sonic's Game and put my cat in the snow with a Santa hat on. He didn't talk to me for the rest of the day.

Sometimes I love lazy weekends.

We seem to be having a lot of weekends like this lately. Napping and avoiding cleaning!

Just checking in to make sure you didn't drown. The old school nintendo just isn't as good as it once was. My favorite, Excite Bike, which I could play for hours at a time I can only stomach for 15 mins. Guitar Hero is getting to be one of my favs. You play it? I rip a couple songs after I put the kiddies to bed. Then I do the dishes so I don't get yelled at when Bethany comes home.
