Friday Night: Jesse's mom provided dinner and company. Jackson played with his cousin and we all indulged in fried chicken, macaroni salad, and key lime pie. I know this is stating the obvious, but it is so, so much easier caring for three babies when there are three adults!
Saturday morning: While cleaning out the garage we found a dead turtle and snake skin. We got rid of old lawn mowers, single strollers, and bicycles. We can finally walk around the cars now.
Saturday early afternoon: I attended a baby shower with about twenty of my former co-workers. James, Amelia, and Madeline received cuddles from some of my favorite women. I listened to people complain about their singleton pregnancies and grinned politely.
While the babies and I were at the shower, Jesse took Jackson for a long overdue haircut.
One of our gift card purchases was a safety lock that actually works on our refrigerator. Victory!
The second purchase is proof that I am a stay at home mom. I've had my eye on one of those fancy laundry baskets that you can carry on your hip, but I could never justify spending $10 when we already have laundry baskets. Granted, our cheap baskets are broken and definitely require two hands to hold them. My hands are full enough these days, so I allowed myself to splurge on something completely unnecessary.
Saturday evening: Jesse's parents brought Japanese take-out for dinner and loved on their grandkids. This picture is almost a month old, but it still conveys how the time was spent with the best MiMi and PaPa in the world.
Sunday morning: We had to be at church an hour earlier for a breakfast potluck. Jackson and I made waffles while Jesse got the babies ready. We always keep the babies in their car seats until they are in the nursery; every Sunday people flock to admire them. We are so fortunate to have so many people who love our children!
We attempted to have a lazy Sunday afternoon. Though we were able to nap, it was cut short by hungry babies.
Jesse took Jackson grocery shopping while I juggled three fussy babies, pumped, and cleaned downstairs.
Still on the agenda: eat dinner, give the kids a bath, fold laundry, and go to bed.
