Weekends are my FAVORITE. You’d think as a stay at home mom, one day would run into another without a set work schedule but I am just as excited for Friday night to roll around as everyone else. I love having everyone home and for the projects we accomplish, the new adventures we have together, and the teensy, tiny bit extra of rest we can sneak in.

Any given weekend might kick off with a party (and yes, you’d better believe we show up in full costume)…
|Popcorn and his own cart and he’s happy.|
…or spend hours in the kitchen mega baking for holidays, neighbors, or for a special treat for Jack’s workplace.
…and if we’re lucky, Jack and I find time for a date out to eat or to a charity event or sharing ice cream.

If we aren’t knocking down and rebuilding anything at our house, we wander over to a friend’s and help them destroy and fix theirs.
…and occasionally, we spend our weekends cleaning out the barn, restocking hay and water, and bringing in sopping wet horses in the middle of the night so they don’t freeze when the temperature dips. And are they thankful? Usually not.

Of course, there’s church–renewing our covenants and worshipping with our ward family before we head to classes and discuss gospel topics and scriptures in more depth.

No denying that weekends are crazy–maybe best described as a sort of weekend mania–but they’re days I guard fiercely because my family is mine all mine!
