Monday Morning Weekend Roundup


Jolene and I flew solo again this weekend while Dustin was out deer hunting.  She had the last of her 4-month vaccinations on Friday morning and did such a great job - what a champ!  I got a lot more done on Friday than I expected to.  Yay!

On Saturday, I met up with my Mother-in-Law and we visited with Dustin's Grandmother.  Since we were already across town, Jolene and I stopped at Ikea and Home Goods.  You can see pictures of my goodies below.

Dustin ended up coming home late Saturday night because he missed his girls (and he didn't see any bucks).  Could he be any cuter?  We had a great Sunday as a family - first breakfast, then some work around the house, followed by a nice drive with Pumpkin Spice lattes.  Ahhh!
