Another week....another busy weekend

Sorry I haven't been posting about what we have been doing during the week...there isn't much to do when its cold! We do stay pretty busy though...Brian plays basketball on Monday nights and bowls on Wednesday nights and I try to get to aerobics class on Tuesday nights and Saturday mornings so the weeks go pretty fast with work added into that. Carter and I did get to go play with Jackson and Liam last week too.

We had a really fun weekend. Friday night we went to the Grill House with our friends Sheri and Brian. I set them up on a blind date about 3 months ago and I have to say I think I can check them off my list of successful set ups! I have set up about 4-5 couples and they are all married so my success rate is pretty good! Aren't they cute together?

Saturday Brian and Jason practiced shooting their guns for Iowa and did a little hunting so I headed over to hang out with Martha and the boys. They were all getting tired so we threw them in the tub. It seems busy with just Jacob running around...wait til next fall when they are all running around!

Jason wanted to claim this picture as the guys babysitting and doing baths and letting the ladies go out..ha, yeah right! We will see if that ever happens! Boys, boys, boys...unfortunately Martha and I are outnumbered!

Yesterday we celebrated my dad's birthday. His birthday usually gets tossed in with Thanksgiving day but I wanted to make sure we did it separately. Here's the cake I made.

Carter wanted to help grandpa open his presents. The envelopes tasted great!

Carter and I made caramel corn for grandpa. It was a pain to make but turned out pretty good for my first time.
