Weekend Top Five 9/21/08

I know these are pretty much the most uninteresting posts I write, but it is kind of fun for me to have a record of our weekend events, and maybe share a laugh or two from our life.

5. Ladies night Out

Deb received two tickets to review The Women, so we went. I thought it would be pretty good because of the star-laced cast. It was okay. About half way through, I made the realization that there actually wasn't a single male in the entire movie (until the baby in the last scene). Not a movie that I need to own, but kind of a fun one for a night out.

4. Family Trip to the Library...Puppet Show Extraordinaire and another lesson for Mom

I take the boys every week. But it was kind of fun to go with all of us. I was treated to several puppet shows. Noah came over and started showing a puppet kind of "beating up" another puppet and I started scolding him, but then he kept going...complete with another beating. Then, when I was ready to put a stop to it, Noah picks up a different puppet and shows it being nice to the first puppet, and starts saying things like "and gives him money and pours oil on his wounds" and then I realized that he was telling the story of the Good Samaritan that they had learned about in Sunday School this morning.

I thought it was pretty cool.

3. Lunch at Moe's

It's a highlight because we haven't been in awhile and I was craving it terribly.


Ringling Brother's was here. I have only been to a circus once in my life when I was young and I barely remember it. Every year I have wanted to take the boys when the train rolls in, so we finally went. I didn't take a lot of pictures, because we were busy watching the show, but here is Aaron with the free clown nose.

Aaron declared at bedtime, "Mommy, I want to be a clown so you and Daddy can come see me in the circus." to which I, of course, replied, "Aaron, you already ARE a clown."

So, of course, following a visit to the circus, we needed to...

1. Create our own Backyard Circus

Complete with our own "trapeze artists"



and even a clown

You gotta appreciate Noah's latest "invention" around his waist. This is a toy ball, wrapped through a belt, stuffed with paper to allow his pen and a pumpkin straw to stick out the sides. He has put a play shirt OVER his pajamas and the gloves and glasses are to make him a super hero as well.

I can't wait to hear about your top five.

Happy Monday!

I did really like the movie - then again, it had been a while since I'd seen one in the theater. ;)

We liked the circus - Ron was slightly disappointed in general, and I don't know that I'd pay that much to go again (although I'll probably want Becca to go when she's older), but we did have a really good time. :)

I love his red nose and his desire to be a clown! How sweet that he is doing it for you!

First, these posts are not boring, I actually look forward to them. Noah's good samaritan acting is wonderful, he is learning which is awesome. The circus, I am jealous because I so want to go, but will probably wait until next year, Callee is afraid of her own shadow and my highlight was being without the girls saturday night.

Cute boys :) Must be so much fun to have them around. I was diagnosed with end stage cervical cancer at 28 and can never have kids of my own. While it makes me sad seeing happy families and great parents makes me very happy!

Thanks for being such a good mom!
