Weekend Review

As usual the weekend was fast and furious.
Saturday we got up early and got paint for the kids rooms. I was tired of the pink in Jakobs room. As soon as we got home I started painting. I had no idea how long it was going to take. Usually we could paint a room in 2 hours. Well that was before 2 kids and we weren't trying to cover up bright pink. So needless to say it took us all day to paint a 10x11 room. I would paint for an hour then Dustin then me. At 2:30 one of Dustins friends came over for Dustin to wax his car. Then Miss Kiera came over while her daddy went to work.
While all this was going on, We left Jakob upstairs watching a movie. Now if anyone knows Jakob he has never been one to get into stuff. He just kinda does his own thing and doesn't really get into stuff he is not supposed to be. Well we were reminded Saturday that we have an unpredictable 3 year old. We were outside with the babies and we hear a thud. I run inside and Jakob is crying. My first thought was "oh no he fell down the stairs" But that was not the case, I asked him what happened and he said he fell and hit his head, I asked where he fell, He said from the LADDER!! Dustin and I just looked at each other and our stomachs sank. We ran to Jakobs bedroom and he was trying to be so helpful by painting the spots we hadn't gotten to yet. So what he did was get a paint brush, climb to the top of the ladder, dipped his brush in the paint( that was on the top of the ladder) And climbed down and painted the bottom of the walls, Although most of the paint got on the base boards he had the right idea. So anyway I guess while he was coming down from dipping his brush he fell back and hit his head on the wall. He was ok just scared. And the room was not nearly as bad as it could have been. Luckily we had put a drop cloth down so there was only a few paint spots on the carpet. And Dustin was able to just wipe the wet paint off of the base boards so it really wasn't as bad as it could have been.

Then Sunday was church as usual. After church I had a planning meeting for our wild west fun fest on Halloween. Then Staci, Aaron and Ashley came over and Jenn and Kiera as well and we cooked out. It was nice and relaxing. I sure am going to miss these impromptu cookouts once the twins are born. But that's ok, I just cant wait till they get here!!
Today was another busy day, Mondays are laundry day at the Schoen house and boy did we have some laundry. And then Jenn came over to watch Kate and Jakob while I went to get my licence renewed. Then I watched Kiera while she went to PT. So its been a busy weekend and Monday.
Tomorrow, I have parent orientation for Jakobs school. I am so excited about him starting preschool. He is going to love it so much. And I am going to love the time not chasing a 3 year old around. Friday we have meet the teacher . That will be lots of fun.
Then later Friday Jennifer Thompson( My best friend from high school) And her 3 year old Daughter Kaitlin are coming in. I think Saturday we will be going to a pumpkin patch . Sunday I am not sure what us girls are going to do but the boys will be going to the airshow. Which Dustin will have lots of pictures of for sure ;)

Well that was my weekend. I have random pictures that I ll post later, My grandmother got on to me for not having enough pictures of Jakob but every time I bring the Camera out he turns away or runs. But I got a couple shots today.

I hope everyone has a great night.. till next time...
