Rainy Day Fun

The original plan for today was to head up to a local farm with my local MOPS group to enjoy some fall-time fun with all the little Moppets.  But the weather forecast predicted lots and lots of rain, so the trip got postponed to later on in the month.

On Friday I'll be heading out for the women's retreat with my church, so I figured today was as good a day as any to do the oh so exciting chore of laundry.  I usually try to space out our laundry so that I don't have too many loads all at once, but decided to tackle it all today.  It's definitely not all going to get folded though- but at least it will be clean!

Noelle and Jonah's laundry

We tried on Noelle's Halloween costume, which is a little small, but will definitely work for this year. She'll be the cutest little dalmatian out there (for all of the 3 or 4 houses we'll go to)! Now to teach her how to say "trick or treat."

so silly

Between downpours, we hit up the grocery store for a few things that I want to bring with me this weekend, including another jar of almond butter, which I seem to go through on a weekly basis. So yum!

my favorite kind of shopping cart

After Jonah went down for his second nap (hallelujah!), I set up a fort for Noelle to play in.  It kept her entertained for about 10 minutes, and she had too-easy access to the paper plates.  And the marker.  Which she used on the comforter from my college days.

lots of blue colored paper plates // and blue colored comforter

And then she bonked her head on the table and wouldn't go under the fort anymore.  But at least Jonah took two really good naps today and was in a much better mood than he has been!  He also got to practice some more sitting up, and is getting quite good at the tripod sitting.

We ended with a delicious salad for dinner and bathtime for the littles.  It was definitely a simple day at home, but I am so thankful I get to spend the day with Noelle and Jonah!

  1. All of this week I left my laundry and yesterday when I decided to do it the weather turned into heavy rain! So today I decided to get it all done and out of the way so I could look up celebrity gossip during nap time guilt free! I'm onto my fourth load! Enjoy your retreat on friday!
