Happy Monday!! I hope you had a great weekend. We had the best weekend (despite the cold temps)!

It started on Friday with some extra snuggles from my favorite little guy. Between working extra, traveling for my reunion, and then our overnight getaway with my hubs, I've been gone a lot. It was very clear that someone had missed his momma. So I certainly didn't mind spending some extra QT on the couch.

Later that morning, we ran to my mom's house to see her new tricycle. William LOVED riding bikes with Mimi.

Friday night we went out to dinner and then stopped by DQ on the way home for ice cream.

And y'all!! There have some new desserts; something "a la mode". Anyway, it was a warm chocolate chip cookie filled with fudge. Then it was drizzled with fudge and the ice cream beside it had fudge on it. OH MY WORD! It was so good! The picture doesn't do it justice, but hopefully my description did! ;)

Saturday I spent the morning on a "mommy/daughter" date.

She had a list made of the things she wanted to do. (Like mother, like daughter)

I absolutely LOVED spending one on one time with her. We don't do it nearly enough as we should, but we hope to change that soon. We talked about having a date once a month! Sounds perfect to me!

Later that afternoon, we fixed cookies for my stepdad's birthday. Cate iced them and William added the sprinkles.

Then my parents came over to celebrate. I love having them close by. The kids had a ball singing to "P" and helping him blow out his candles/open presents.

Sunday was another cold (in the 40's!!!) and rainy day (where the heck did Spring go??).

So after church we came home and spent the rest of the day being lazy.

I hope you have a great day!

And don't forget my link ups with Biana and Meghan.
