So this last week was a wee bit crazy for us. Besides our usual “crazy,” 😛 S had to attend two funerals, Hp was sick with a major case of the flu (?) and missed school for an entire week… add in a trip to L.A. over the weekend, and so much more! Here’s just a little bit of what we’ve been up to lately…
Bg just looooved having her big Oh-bbah home every day. Just toast with “cream” (butter) and juice for breakfast for our sick one and little sister!
One of the best (among many :P) things about Hudson is that he’ll always put on a happy face for you no matter what. He seemed to be doing better so we ended up going to his Speech Meet! Friday. (Weren’t you wondering!?!) Turned out he wasn’t doing better AT. ALL. You can even kind of tell from just looking at his eyes…Poor guy!
See? All smiles. H and his buds…I love 1st graders. Just look at those teeth (or, lack thereof)!
Hp was the first to go in the Scripture memory category. What a blessing he didn’t have to wait…go number 17!
He did, however, have to wait (quite a long while for a sick person) for the other kids to recite their passages and for the judges to do their “judging” after he went. Here he is resting with Papa. 😦
Bg had plenty of time for some RUNNING around outside though!
Strict rules! No pictures or video during speech-time…but Hp did GREAT. We were all SO VERY PROUD of him! What a trooper.
Since it wasn’t a “competition,” each child earned a ribbon. Go Big Red!
Later that evening, Papa got DRESSED, and boarded a Yacht on the San Diego Harbor for the Senior Prom! It’s a fun thing for him and he goes every year. Whenever he sees kids get a little too close while “dancing (hugging),” he comes between them and says, “Hey, hey, hey…leave room for the Holy Spirit.”
What do you think? Go Big…ORANGE?!
(“I wanna go- can I go too, Papa?”…Never. NO dances. EVERRRR.) 😛
I stayed home and made a HUGE batch of something using these…(recipe to come!)
(There’s the something.)
Saturday morning…The night before, Mommie left out their weekend bags of before-breakfast cereal of choice, (usually eaten while Mommie and Papa are still in bed :P), and Tetris in a box.
We LOVE just-woken-up morning faces. So raw and real.
Bf apparently had something delicious baking in the oven for breakfast.
It was a sunshiny day and Hp was finally beginning to feel a little better, so we packed a biiig container full of chicken nuggets to share and went for a special treat. Nothing beats enjoying lunch in the beautiful outdoors!
On to meet Papa at one of our most favorite places in the world..the library! Our little library is literally just a bike-ride away, and we go at least once a week to read, do puzzles, play on their computers, get crafty things, and stock up on books of course! I LOVE LOVE LOOOOVE the library and everything about it. Here I am browsing the book sale cart, and here’s Papa, posing oh-so-eagerly for my photo. (Thanks Papa :P.)
Movie night!!! We borrowed a version of one of our faves at the library. We can’t seem to get enough of Charlie and Lola these days… (Bg: “Chah-lee- Lo-wa!”)
Our evening “dessert” tray (we have some version of this EVERY. SINGLE. night).
I baked and water-bathed one of these to take up to L.A. for my beloved MIL’s Birthday (just look at that steam!)…
and stayed up getting all of these ready for a very special little baby (here’s a sneak-peak at what’s to come):
She just turned 100…days old :P.
Her Mommie made cute Menu cards for the occasion…don’t you just love anything with scalloped edges? And, my favorite flowers.
Just the girls!
Introducing, our adorable nephew & cousin, Dominic Matthew Joo! Bd is a very good boy and is 100-Day Baby Charlotte’s big brother. (Contrary to what it may seem, he is only 1 1/2! :P)
We had dinner at one of our “regulars” whenever we go up to L.A. (Sorry, no pictures of food, we were all too hungry.) But dontcha just love their little signs? I always get their:
S always gets:
I couldn’t leave this one out now, could I? Hehehe
Back to Grandparents house for cheesecake and blowing out candles!
We all got a kick out of watching Bd (try to :P) blow out candles for the first time. “Ready, Blooow!” ….Om, that little grin!
We absolutely LOVE our precious family and miss them so whenever we aren’t together!
Hope your week was as blessed as ours! xo
