No cooking = A Great Week

Julia and Emma wore matching outfits Monday. We even did their hair the same.

Kind of sad that I judge a week by how many meals I have to prepare.
Monday I took the 3 oldest to the dentist for cleanings. We got done around 4:30 and they were all starving. It just so happened the dentist had given them coupons for a free hamburger to Artic Circle. We got 3 free hamburgers and one order of french fries for them to share and that was dinner. I had soup or something healthy and Eldon had fried eggs.

Just more pictures of the girls. Don't they look adoreable!

Tuesday my presidency meeting was cancelled and then my mother-in-law called and invited us over for dinner. So a busy evening turned into a calm, quiet evening. I love it when that happens!

Wednesday was the worst day for every reason. I cleaned my bathrooms, dusted, vacuumed, swept and mopped my floors, had to fix dinner, and then put the kids to bed by myself. At least all the bad stuff happened on the same day. I dragged myself to bed at 10:30 sore and stiff from a long day of hard work.
This is how Andrew felt about me cleaning all day.

Thursday we had left-overs and then I had book club. I got to sit and chat with my friends and eat yummy food! It was great!

Friday night we went on a date to Texas Roadhouse. We went on a double date with Grandma and Grandpa Hult, but we could have triple dated since we happened to run into Grandma and Grandpa Tuckett at the same restaurant at the same time. What are the odds. That was our first Texas Roadhouse experience. It was delicious!!! We had a coupon for a free appetizer so I was full before my meal arrived, but it was all so good I just had to keep eating!

Saturday Julia had festival in Orem. That's where she gets judged on a couple of piano pieces she has been working on. She received a Superior Rating again! One more and she gets a trophy!
Eldon had two hours between Festival and the basketball game in which he took down the Christmas lights. Eldon loved the BYU game and even stayed for the ceremony afterwards.
I stayed home most of the day making food preparations for Sunday dinner since it was our turn to host the Hult Family dinner. When Eldon got home from the game I got to go scrapbooking, where again I chatted with friends and ate yummy food!

Sunday was a little hectic before church, during church, and after church. Sometimes Sunday seems like a day of rest, maybe not this month:)

Overall, it was a great week! I only had to prepare 2 meals the WHOLE week!!!!

Wow, love it when that happens. I was just looking at my upcoming week and won't be making dinner that many nights because Matt will be gone two of them. It does make a huge difference when you don't have to cook. Your girls are darling, I like dressing my boys the same too.
