Weekend Things

Hello and Happy Halloween! We had a good (and productive!) weekend and man, this kiddo is just so fun to hang with these days. I find myself wanting to write down all the funny things he’s been saying. I don’t want to forget them ever! He’s a little parrot lately and it’s too cute hearing him stay stuff like “I miss the mall, Dempsey”πŸ˜‚ Anyway, let me show you our weekend!

Friday night, Joey and Dempsey played an intense game of chess. I think Joey beat Demps in four moves πŸ˜‚ We also decided to order in pizza and while we were looking out the front window for the delivery person, we saw about four cop cars and two motorcycle cops circling around our block. Joey had me convinced they were about to raid a house on our street but then it ended up being a Dia de los Muertos event at the school near us and they were just providing security as the party walked the block. Phew! Blue Pan pizza hit the spot, as always. Put Demps to bed and watched GBBO and I’m still not sure I understand custard desserts πŸ˜‹

Saturday started with buttermilk waffles and the funniest bedhead and then we took Dempsey over to Sloan’s Lake for an all ages outdoor music class that we’d heard really good things about and had been meaning to take him to for so long! Weather pending, but I hope we go again. It ended up being really fun! Between pregnant me and stiff Joey, the two of us were having quite the time sitting on the ground for 45-minutes but otherwise, no complaints! We sang the ABCs toward the end of class and Dempsey looked me right in the eyes and said “Don’t sing!” πŸ˜‚ He was also letting this parachute wipe across his entire face every time we pulled it down. Shoutout to the teacher who was really good with the kids (he somehow remembered all their names after hearing them once!) and was really out there performing those children’s songs.

While Dempsey was taking his nap, Joey and I finally pulled the trigger on a new car seat for his truck and I picked out a new dresser for Dempsey’s room — gotta make room in the current dresser for baby girl’s stuff! — then specifically told Joey we would have to pick it up at the Arvada Target. We sat in the parking lot at Edgewater for five minutes waiting for our delivery before Joey asked “it’s this Target, right??” D’OH! Definitely tried to blame it on Joey by saying my brain isn’t working and won’t be for the next two months either πŸ˜‹ The upside is that the Chick-fil-A next to the Arvada Target had a way shorter line than the Chick-fil-A in Edgewater, so milkshakes all around. Well, I shared with Dempsey (and technically the baby). We were all fans! Back at home, the boys built Dempsey’s dresser and I made us dinner. After Dempsey was in bed, we watched Confess, Fletch and hey, we really liked it! It also supported my firm belief that we should just let Jon Hamm be funny, okay!

Started Sunday with breakfast at Snooze. We ordered a pumpkin pecan pancake for us all to share and Dempsey was a big fan of the candied pecans! Back at home, we started our usual Sunday chores and then I left the boys in their Cowboys jerseys to watch the game while I got a haircut. When I got back home, I got to work on salads for the week and Joey moved all Dempsey’s play stuff to our spare bedroom and all of our office stuff to the front area of the house. Now we can just close the door on our toy messπŸ˜‚ He also moved our treadmill to the basement and I was horrified when he told me how he did it 😱 Once Dempsey was up from his nap, we carved/painted pumpkins! Joey made us some really good apricot chicken for dinner and after bath/bedtime for Demps, we watched the first episode of The White Lotus. I missed Jennifer Coolidge πŸ˜‹

Wishing you all a Happy Halloween and a good rest of your week!
