{Labor Day} Weekend Recap

I feel like God showed some mercy on the state of OK this weekend with some A-MAZING weather.  We rarely have ideal weather, but Labor Day was just that.  The high was 75-80 degrees and the low was a chilling 50.  Well HELLO Hoodie, I've missed you.  We're going to have a great fall together. 

(Saturday}

We started out our Labor Day weekend with a little cookout with the Turners.  Casey's husband bought her a sewing machine for her birthday, so {really} we went over so I could help her get it set up...and what better way to celebrate the beginning of a future sewer than to watch one of my all time favorite movies How to Make an American Quilt.  Just to clarify, this is an actual movie...not a quilting tutorial like Chris thought.  Needless to say, about 10 minutes into it, the men left the room. 

Another reason for the visit was so I could see baby Avery :)  She is now 5 months old.  I loved this age...starting to chatter away, smile, and roll.  You could put them down on the floor and knew they would be in the same spot when you got back....*sigh*  Those were the days...



Christian clearly had a good time...

He's such a classy house guest...scratches his bottom, sits with his legs spread apart, gets a bumbo stuck to his back side....

...and let's not forget abruptly falling down and just laying there for awhile...


{Sunday}

We headed over to my parents house for some sweet and sour chicken :)   Matt mentioned it to my mother like 2 weeks ago about how good it was (his way of asking her to make it) and Poof! She calls, "Heeey, I made sweet and sour chicken for my son in law..."  She spoils him with food.  Up until Matt came along, I'm pretty sure when I would visit there would only be rice and kimchi.

While we were there, Christian tried on his hanbok.  My family in Korea sent it a few months ago for our family photo's, but it's still big on him....I think it's for a 2 year old.  Hopefully he'll grow into it in the next month...


Here is baby Cristal...not looking so happy about wearing hers...I mean seriously, look at all that!  I don't blame baby me for being disgruntled. 





{Monday} - Labor Day

We didn't visit more family, we didn't cookout, we just spent the day together.  Matt worked on the lawn in the morning while Christian and I went to Target for a few things.  Afterwards, we went to Riverside to Los Cabos for some Mexican and to enjoy the nice weather. 


Christian enjoyed his cheesey enchilada, rice, and beans. Whenever he eats, we'll say, "Show me your belly!" He'll lift up his shirt and start slapping his bulging stomach.  That's my kid, all class :) LOL



AND here is all the food we consumed this weekend....Um, this is a judgment free zone, so keep your disapproving words to yourself...I already feel enough shame! Mmmm, but it was all so good.  We had a good time didn't we food? :) Heehee...


Well, that was my Labor Day weekend...now back to work.  Have a great week!!!  At least we're one day closer to the weekend ;)

Mmmmm...I had a margarita this weekend as well, all due to the fact that I NEEDED one because my boys had driven me up the wall...:) And great reminder that I need to watch that movie again, it's been a long time since I've seen it. And of course, you know how proud I am to see the sewing machine pictures...
