Whew! What a week this has been. I've been out of blogging for about a week!
It started off a great week. Evan was happy to be back at school, and EG and I had a line p of fun things planned for the week. Monday, Anna Elise came to play for a while. Anna Elise's mom, Kim, and I have been friends a looooong time (since 7th grade). That was only 10 years ago...hee hee...really like about 23 years ago! EG and AE had the best time together. EG thought Anna Elise was IT! She was so observant of everything AE was doing. It was SO fun to watch our girls play together.
I love this picture of them in the princess shoes! Notice EG won't even look at the camera because that would mean she would have to take her eyes off of Anna Elise.
From Monday to Tuesday, I'm not sure what happened, but Ella Grace was under the weather for the next several days. She had a fever virus. I really don't understand the "fever virus." That is really the only symptom and it's a fever that just comes back after Motrin or Tylenol wears off. Anyway, it made her feel pretty crummy. She was definitely not her sassy self. All she said for about four days was, "Hold you," so I just held her.
EG was back to her self on Friday, so that morning Derek's mom and dad asked if she could come over for the day. She was SO excited. She loves to go and play with Nana and Papaw. Derek dressed her and fixed her hair.
Derek and I got to run some errands, eat lunch together, and pick up Evan. It was a nice afternoon. Then, my mom asked if the kids could spend the night. I knew EG would want to go, but I didn't think Evan would. He always wants to stay home with us. He is a homebody, and comes by it naturally since Derek and I are the same way. To my surprise, they BOTH wanted to go. Derek and I were so happy to have a date night (that we weren't expecting)! We went to Copeland's and it was YUM! We got cheesecake to go. Sooooo good!
We kept the one-year-olds at church last night. They were so good. No one cried or pooped their diaper (ha!)!
Now, I'm working on gettting clothes together for a resale event. I do this every Spring and Fall. It's a lot of work, but so worth it to buy new clothes for them since they outgrow most of them from season to season. The hardest part for me is parting with things they were SO sweet in. I keep the most sentimental pieces but make myself part with the rest! It's HARD! :(
