weekend recap

Friday night, we had a hockey practice, Pete was out at a Wild game with a friend, and I hunkered down to watch the Olympic Opening Ceremony all cozied up in the big chair in our great room with the fireplace going. I absolutely love watching the Olympics (especially the winter) - and the Opening Ceremony was fabulous- all 4 hours of it!

Saturday was spent at hockey and more hockey. One boy had a practice and another had a game. And sandwiched in between, I baked and decorated some valentine sugar cookies.


Sunday was of course Valentine’s Day. I made a big breakfast for the family and helped Tyler gather everything he needed for his day. He was going over to his girlfriend’s house to surprise her with breakfast. So sweet!

Drew took his girlfriend to a movie to celebrate Valentine's Day. So sweet!

And we had two hockey games- one in the afternoon and one in the evening. ‘Cuz nothing says Valentines Day like being at the hockey rink! :) Pete joked that he would buy me a hot dog at the rink and maybe a slushie. :) Actually, after the game, we ordered some takeout from one of our favorite restaurants and came home and watched a movie. So sweet!

Monday, the boys were off of school so we were treated to a long weekend- which is always so appreciated! We headed over to my parents house to celebrate my Dad’s birthday and also my nephew’s.

Happy Birthday Dad and Thomas!

(This photo is a couple of years old- but I think it is such a sweet one of the two of them.)

I finished the long weekend last night by having dinner with some friends at a fun little French restaurant called Salut. It was a perfect way to end a great weekend!

I love those cookies. I didn't make any this year and I'm bummed, but someone brought some to church for snacks so I got to eat one.

Your weekend sounds up & down & fun. Have a great week and take care.

P.S. My daughter and I love the picture of Bella. Is she as sweet as she looks?

Your cookies look so cute (and delicious) on that cake plate! Looks like a Martha Stewart magazine picture. We too had 2 hockey events on Sunday, but at least they were in the morning :)
