Cooking, Holidays, Husbandlittlew8

>So this weekend was nearly perfect. It was date weekend 2010! My amazing mom agreed to watch H Friday evening and Saturday afternoon so Allan & I could spend some time alone together. We haven't been on a date since H was born and I have a feeling that it will only happen a few times a year. Sad but true. We hadn't been to the temple since before H was born. We used to be great about it. We first started going every week [and that actually lasted longer than I thought it would], then it went to every month, then once H was born temple visits were non-existant. That was priority numero uno this weekend!

I took a picture of the temple but none of them did it justice. The temple is just so beautiful! At about 9:30 I made the mistake of thinking about food and couldn't stop after that [breastfeeding moms - you know what I'm talking about]. The second we left, we stopped at the first Whataburger we could find and at the time I thought it was the best thing I had ever eaten. Allan says hunger is the best spice! The next morning, I woke up and made pumpkin pancakes for us [recipe courtesy of Lori]. Perfect fall breakfast! I'm definitely making them again. We sat by the fireplace on a blanket and ate picnic style. 

We lounged all morning and it was perfect. We haven't had such a relaxing weekend in a long time and we needed it. My mom came over and took the boy so we got to go see HARRY POTTER 7! I'm not going to ruin it for anyone, don't worry. Buuuut it was GREAT. Action packed, sad, and definitely darker than I was expecting. I only fell asleep for 15 minutes or so ;) We got pumpkin cheesecake [it's that time of year to take advantage!] from The Cheesecake Factory [SO YUMMY!] and headed home to relieve Mom so she could go out to Dallas. We ended the evening with putting up our Christmas tree and decorations. We had to take advantage of the free time because who knows when we will have another chance!

[we love christmas!]

[Yes, that is Santa Mr. Potato head as our tree topper :P]
One last picture. We were given this adorable robe and I kept forgetting we had it and he's almost too big for it now [babies grow out of clothes too quickly] so I had to take a picture. Enjoy!
