Weekend In Dallas

Things have been so crazy around our house lately. Last week was chaotic to say the least. My mom came up on Thursday and helped me clean/organize my house (thanks mom). We cleaned out Ethan's entire room and closet, organized all his baby things and went through his clothes, toys and books. That kid has way too much stuff. We also cleaned out the garage. It was so cluttered that it was starting to stress me out. We put 8 big tubs of Ethan's clothes (ridiculous) and 5 big tubs of toys (again, ridiculous) in the attic. Again, this kid has way too much stuff for a 3 year old! We worked all morning on Friday and finally called it quits after we couldn't walk. I still have a little more to do but I'm motivated enough to do it now.
So that was Thursday afternoon - Friday. Friday evening, Ethan went with Zann and Casey to the boat show at the fairgrounds. It was so nice to have the house to myself for a few hours. I actually fell asleep (I was worn out from working in the garage). That was nice. Anywho...Ethan caught a couple of catfish and found a boat he wants. According to Zann, the boat was pimped out and cost around $80,000. Not gonna happen little buddy.

Now on to the weekend. We woke up nice and early Saturday morning and headed to Dallas (along with Jen and Casey) to meet MiMi and PePaw. It was kinda nice to get away. We went to the Galleria on Saturday and the Dallas Aquarium on Sunday. If you ever have a chance to go to the aquarium, go. It's awesome! And of course we couldn't leave the Dallas metropolitan area without a visit to Ikea. I could spend all day in that store! I LOVE it!
Hopefully we can get back on a schedule now. Ethan didn't really have a nap all weekend. He did fall asleep on the way home yesterday at 5, slept all the way home and we managed to get him in the house and in bed without waking up. And he slept til 7:15 this morning! WoooHooo!

And here's the real reason you read our blog...

Ethan really liked the fish. I think he wanted to get in the tank with them.

All the family, minus Zann, at lunch on Sunday.

Check out that smile! This boy loves his family...especially his grandmothers. He has them wrapped around his little finger. Happy Monday! Stay warm!

Oh...I almost forgot...we're 9 weeks pregnant! Ethan's going to be a big brother!
