Labor Day Weekend

As we all know, this last weekend was Labor Day, yay for the 3 day weekend!! Even though I get 4 day weekends, every weekend, thanks to my wonderfully forgiving work schedule. And, it was our holiday for the kids...and I was nervous as hell! Not that I don't love them, but it's hard work to be a stepmommy! Long story short, only Jaeden ended up coming, and I have to give the kid props, he was awesome!!

There wasn't one tantrum the whole weekend...and we've been working on a rewards system with the kids, and for Jaeden, it was a miracle! He loves trying to earn his "tickets" for doing something good, and this weekend he earned a LOT! So, we bought him a Sonic the Hedgehog game, we all remember how fun that was! Only his is on Xbox, way cooler...but whatever, we weren't all lucky enough to be born in the 21st century.

Not only did he not throw fits, but I've come to notice how amazing of a big brother he is to Kaeson, it totally melts my heart. So we had a lot of fun :-). We didn't do much, I worked a little bit on Saturday, then we went back and walked through "our house" again, and I didn't want to leave!!

Sunday we went to church, but ditched our early to go to the lake for a few hours, since it's starting to get cold, we knew it would be one of the last times we'd be able to enjoy it, so I think we're forgiven. On Monday we went to RC Willey and got all excited for everything we're going to buy to put into our house! We DIDN'T buy though, we resisted, just in case we don't end up with the house of our dreams, and have to pick out new furniture all over again. So, huge sigh, the offer is in, and all we can do is sit and wait....of course we'll keep updating as we hear more about it! So here's to hoping!!
Also, we tried to put Kaeson in Jaeden's old walker, turns out he may still be a little too floppy for that, cute anyways...
