Weekend Shenanigans - A Bright Sunshiney Day

Sunday, January 18, 2015

Another weekend in January is in the books.
That means just one more weekend closer to spring.

This weekend was unusually warm and sunny for central Indiana.  The temperature got up to almost 50 on Saturday and about 40 today -- and there was sun both days!  Considering it has been bitterly cold, snowy and icey for the last three weeks I was determined to get out.  We have this amazing trail called the Monon Trail and I was able to get in a good four miles.  There were a few parts that hadn't been hit by the sun or the plow and I'm pretty sure I looked like Fred Flinstone because my feet were moving but my body was not. However I killed my pace (under a 9 minute mile!) and then celebrated with quick trip to Target of course.  Later in the afternoon we celebrated the first birthdays of some of the babies from the 2013-2014 Friends Baby Boom.  (I'm serious.  I had seven friends have babies in that time frame.  It was awesome!!)  It is crazy to me that all of these sweet peas are growing up so fast!

Sundays are my favorite in the Baumgartner House.  I slept in until 9, got up and enjoyed breakfast with my cuties and then did nothing until about two o'clock.  Again, it was awesome.  My main tasks were to finish laundry and put away the tubs of Christmas decor that had been hanging out in the loft.  Check and check my friends.  We then spent the rest of the day playing forts, having dance parties and trying to convince Cohen to sweep the kitchen.  It worked for about 2 seconds until he handed me the broom and said, :"Okay Mom, now you sweep into here."  
I tried.
 Look at these moves folks.

Oh, and we also compared belly buttons.

IU won and the Colts got spanked.  
And tomorrow we don't have school -- thanks, Martin!

I'm excited that January is quickly ending because we need to just get through February.  These next six weeks are the hardest because we don't have ANY breaks and let's be honest, that makes for a hella long time in teacher language.  

Now I'm going to go enjoy some Andy Cohen and cross my fingers that both kids sleep in tomorrow.



  1. I'm sorry such crazy times are ahead. I'm the opposite though, I don't want to get older so I want time to slooooow down!

  2. Looks like such a fun weekend. They are all adorable!

  3. Sounds like a fun and relaxing day. I also enjoyed having the day of work - I'm a long-term sub. My kids and I aren't looking forward to going back either, without a break for awhile.

  4. I hope you enjoyed your MLK day off with the kids and got that late morning start you were shooting for! Your weekend sounded pretty good too, by the way!

  5. The last 2 days have been unseasonably warm here, too. It hit 65 today. I wish it would stay like this, but by the weekend it will be in the low 40s.

  6. Warm day for me is 70! lol Looks like a fun and crazy weekend.

  7. Sounds like you had a great weekend with family and friends! My husband was just lamenting about the same thing (no more long weekends or holidays!), I think he does get President's Day off yet and then NOTHING until May!

  8. It is rough to get through February, come on Spring Break!

  9. What's better than family time and comparing belly buttons?

  10. Was this the weekend my Cowboys played your Colts? That was a great game and your little ones are so cute.
