Saturday Night with the Downings

After a semi productive day that was finely balanced between loafing around and running errands, we made spaghetti and meatballs and garlic bread for dinner. Kayleigh's friend Lydia is over for the night and brought Dawn of the Dead, so we decided to actually eat dinner at the table before watching the zombies getting their heads blown up.

I was pleasantly surprised. It's actually a good horror movie. Not just gory. Despite the fact that I was wrapped up in Todd's arm the whole time. And, of course, the kids loved it.

After the movie, we broke out dessert.

I forget who makes them, but we found these cute little premade graham cracker crusts in a tin, six to a package. So we made some chocolate pudding and some vanilla pudding and topped if off with half of a strawberry. Yummy poo, let me tell ya.

After dessert, we watched Fanboys again, to cleanse our pallet after the gore. It's a very funny movie.

And then the girls said "What are we going to do now?" which spurred me to be a cool mom and build a fort.

It's a simple fort. I'm out of practice.

And now, bedtime. And tomorrow?
Nada. Absolutely nothing.

Yeah, let's see how long THAT lasts.
