Fall weekend update- REVISED EDITION!

New and revised post!  Technical issue with my pictures has been resolved!

It's 10:15 pm as I write this and I am NOT happy that the weekend is over!  I could use another day or two of fun and relaxation!  

Wanted to share a quick update of our weekend.

Friday night hubby was working late so it was just me and the boys.  We has tacos (Nick's favorite), watched Halloween shows (Toy Story of Terror and Spookley the Square Pumpkin) and decorated cupcakes.  Nick and I had a great time "dressing" the pumpkins as Nick called it.  Alec seemed to have a good time eating frosting!

Saturday...I'll be honest.  It started out a little rough.  It was raining and cold so soccer was cancelled.  And since it was raining and cold, the boys were stuck in the house all morning with nothing to do but terrorize themselves and their parents.  Well, mostly me as hubby was locked in the den doing school work.  By 12:30 I had had enough, so I put Alec down for a nap (with daddy) and Nick and I headed to Bounce Around at the mall (think multiple bounce houses and arcade games for little kids). After Nick had thoroughly bounced and was dripping with sweat, we headed to Menchie's for some frozen yogurt.
The sole picture from Bounce Around- the rest were blurry!

Saturday night hubby and I made some delicious BBQ chicken quesadillas. They were soooo good!  I will be sharing the recipe with you soon.   We watched Spookly the Square Pumpkin again, and then yet again.  Finally it was time for the kids to go to bed and the adults to relax and watch some non-Disney TV!

Sunday we woke up to a gorgeous day!  Bright, sunny and 60 degrees (I may be strange but I LOVE that kind of weather)!  Nick and I went to soccer and hubby stayed home with Alec.

After soccer we came home and got ready to go apple of my favorite family fall traditions!!!  I'll be doing a separate post tomorrow about our apple picking adventure.  Stop by and check it out!

After dinner and baths, guess what we did?  Watched Spookley the Square Pumpkin AGAIN!!  Nick now knows the songs by heart and I cannot get them out of my head!!!  HELP ME!!!!

It IS a cute show...the first 10 times you watch it!

Well friends, I hope you all have a wonderful week.   I am already looking forward to next weekend! Hubby and I are taking a little trip and I am very excited!  More about that later.   :)
Happy Monday!!
