Our Weekend!

Saturday night...right before I got ready to take the munchkins to bed at 8pm, our electric went out....(we still don't know wasn't storming out or anything). It was pitch black and just me and the kids. (Chris was down at his dad's meat market...only 1/2 mi. away). The kids were panicking! So, I huddled them all in close to me and then we made a chain by holding hands as I led the way into the kitchen to get some matches to light some candles. After lighting the candles we all sat and talked together on the couch till Daddy got home. Once Chris got home, we decided we would all snooze a bit.
The electric came back on around 9pm and woke me up (you know that clicking sounds it makes when everything pops back on? LOL) I woke up to find everyone sleeping! It was so I had to take a picture before taking everyone to bed!
Madelyn, Ruthie (the dog), and Jaxson.....

Chris and Xavier.....

Then yesterday (Sunday)....the kids woke up coughing and I woke up with a horrible sinus thing going on. I have pressure behind my nose and eyes and a headache. It was...and still is...horrid. I hate being sick. (Who doesn't though, right?) So...I went and taught my Sunday School class at church...but then just came home and we all rested the day away. Last evening, before bed, we had a family movie night and watched Stewart Little 2. Oh my kids LOVE Stewart little movies! They call him "Stewart the Little"...LOL!

And....some big news....Xavier lost a tooth yesterday!!!!!! :o) It's his first!

And...when my headache wasn't too bad...I worked on my knitting some more....and here is my progress so far......(Hey Niki....see the quilt you made me??? ;o)

So...that was our weekend. Nothing too exciting...but time together nonetheless! And I am super thankful for anytime I get to spend with my family! :)
I am still battling this cold right now. It hit me so 'all of a sudden'. Don't ya hate when that happens? :o) So today starts another week! I hope you all had a nice weekend and enjoy your day ahead! xoxo

  8. Sounds like a relaxing weekend, except for the cold part.

    I love the picture of your kids and the dog. How sweet!

  9. Get some rest, hope you and the kiddos feel better soon!

    When we were in China, I got a horrible sinus infection, luckily I brought "Vicks early defense" nasal spray. It helped me so much and gave me about 12 hours relief without feeling dizzy.

    Take care!

  10. I love it when the power is out! Glad you got to spend some family time... hope you're feeling better!!
