This picture says it all about our week last week. A boy REALLY needs his POP. Jack loving Jack as soon as Pop arrived home from the hospital.
I started this post two days ago and for some reason had to stop, so I will just pick up where I left off. Today, I have been fighting off the stomach bug that the entire family has been friends or should I say enemies with. I can NEVER remember a sicker winter. This post has nothing too exciting, but how thankful I am for NORMAL. I probably should have used a different word, maybe ORDINARY, maybe UNEVENTFUL. A good friend on Facebook ask me what NORMAL meant and to me that's a day none of my immediate family has any kind of crisis. What's your definition of a normal day? Keep reading as there are some great photos of some of my favorite people.
Saturday we enjoyed a relaxing day. We made a quick stop by Canton (PERFECT CANTON weather and that does not happen often), had a great meal at Red Lobster and headed to the HOTEL...I worked on paper work , addressed a few cards to friends, and stayed up way too late, but slept until noon on Sunday....That's my kind of day. WE had brunch at Le Madeline's....a favourite of ours. Nothing like their potato soup. Then made some stops at Michaels, Ulta, Kirkland's, Barnes and Noble, TJ Maxx and Steinmart. So some real R & R that was much needed. Last week was exhausting. What a difference a week can MAKE!Then two days of buying spring merchandise , flowers for wreaths, just general WORK.
We got home late last night and I was suddenly VERY TIRED....and just starting to get sick, so have slept most of today...Even turned down a visit by Grayson, in fear that I might pass something back to him...Parker and Jack did spend the evening with us as their Dad is out of town and Amanda needed us to help out...There is ABSOLUTELY NO MEDICINE as effective or as GOOD as hugs from little boys. Now its almost midnight and I have basket orders to get out for tomorrow...so this will be a LONG NIGHT. One advantage/disadvantage of having a home business...the work is always close by.
I love this first picture of Jack....it was made while he had the BUG and felt terrible but how I love that little guy. And guess what...he can count to 10 and he has just started putting 3 and 4 words together...so cute.
This next picture was taken when his Mom thought Parker was watching him. Look who is asleep and who is about to ESCAPE. It just makes me laugh as I know Jack's personality and know he had GET AWAY on his mind.
Aunt Manda holding sweet Grayson when he made a SURPRISE visit to her office today! No words necessary for this little HAPPY MAN. He lights up our lives. And even though he has had more than his share of sickness, he is the HAPPIEST baby, always SMILING. He looks so much like his Dad's baby pictures. And no DAD has ever been PROUDER.
Also please remember to pray for Lisa at Glad Chatter. What a faith filled WOMAN with some HUGE mountains in her life.
