Valentine's weekend was very nice and mostly relaxing! Chris wasn't on call (woo hoo!!!) so we had some uninterrupted family time for the first time in what seems like forever! We got up Saturday, and Chris and I made a big breakfast of bacon, eggs, and toast. Caleb's my picky eater, so all he wanted was cinnamon toast, but my young son has a bottomless pit of a stomach! Chris makes really yummy eggs, and he made 6. I think Joshua ate 3, leaving Chris and me to share the other 3! He also had 2 pieces of bacon and 2 pieces of toast. Where does it go??? He came over to me and said, "Mommy, you eat your eggs and toast?" I told him yes, and he says, "I go eat my eggs and toast!" And off he went... O, what am in for when he gets older!?
Then Chris and I had a much needed date night Sat. night. Mom and Dad kept the kiddos, and we headed to Waco. I have been really wanting to see When in Rome, and I finally got to see it! Soooo good! I will totally be buying that one when it comes out on video! We got to go to Mardel's and shop (sans kids!!!), so taking turns in the kids section that day! We did go to the kids section to buy a new Bible story book for bedtime that the kids are loving. And I got some great deals on fiction....love their clearance section! We had some yummy Mexican food and headed home.
Yesterday we went to church with Chris's parents and visited most of the day with Chris's uncle and cousin who are in from Colorado. It's always great to see them. These guys are story tellers! You always get a good laugh when they're around! Just wish they lived closer! I guess they brought the snow with them!
I forgot to talk about our snow day Friday. SNOW!! Can I tell you how excited Caleb was!? He woke up early for one thing, which didn't make this momma happy, then wanted to immediately head outside. We had a great time throwing snowballs and built a little snowman, but the boys aren't patient enough to build a good one. Joshua kept knocking his poor little head off! Then we headed in for homemade donuts and chocolate milk! Too bad my boys don't like hot drinks...I thought cocoa would be better!
