Quick Weekend Home

Last weekend we made a quick trip home. Joe and Easton dropped me off at a Vendor Blender in Murfreesboro where my mom, Kelly, and Ashley had a booth selling Advocare. I bought this cute wooden sign while I was there.
Easton went with Joe to Yates' basketball game. He had been sick earlier in the week with croup, but had seemed to feel better and went back to school so we thought traveling would be fine. He felt pretty crummy so we ended up taking him back to the doctor when we got back with a sinus infection.
The main reason we went home was to be there for the first Sunday at Ivy Bluff. The church was just beautiful and I was so glad we were there.

Our Life Lately

I'm finding it difficult these to keep this blog updated regularly lately. Here is a quick peek into our life lately.......
Last weekend we had a date night with our favorite four year old tagging along - I guess it was more like family date night! We went out to eat at a local BBQ restaurant and then made a quick trip to Target!
We also enjoyed Fall Festival at Easton's Preschool. It was such a fun event and you could tell that so much hard work went into the planning and preparation of it. Easton had a blast playing games. He also really enjoyed the petting zoo.
Maggie and Molly turned 1 year old at the beginning of the month! These sweet sisters are something else - they have added a level of craziness to our home that we never knew existed, but we wouldn't trade them for anything. They are crazy, wild girls, but they sure are sweet.
Last week Easton was really sick and missed two days of school. He is feeling better, but isn't completely over it yet. We missed his field trip on one of the days that he was sick.
That about sums it up for now! We are busy, but are so blessed!

Easton dressed up as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle for Halloween - Rapheal to be exact. He is loving TMNT lately. He got to wear his costume to school for a class Halloween party.  
I dressed up as a Ninja Turtle, too! He was tickled that we were both turtles! It's the first time I've dressed up with him.
We started trick or treating in our neighborhood, but there were only a few houses with lights on and only one other family trick or treating. So, we drove down to another neighborhood to trick or treat. That neighborhood knows how to do Halloween! The houses were decorated for Halloween, there were tons of kids trick or treating, and it was such a fun atmosphere!

Fall Fun

We've enjoyed a few fun fall activities lately! Last weekend we went to a football game at the school we hope Easton will go to next year for Kindergarten. We atmosphere was great and we really enjoyed it! 
Earlier this week we carved a pumpkin! Easton did not like all of the icky stuff on his hands so I had the privilege of doing it! :) He loved drawing on the pumpkin and seeing what it looked like when we carved it!

Few Things

After our short trip to Tennessee, we headed back home for a few days of rest before starting school back. Mimi came back with us so we enjoyed having her here with us. Easton always loves when she's here.
She was able to go with us to our Wednesday night service for children. During the service, our preacher began to pray and asked the children to put their hands together to pray or they could hold their hands like his. Easton chose to hold his hands like the preachers and I captured this beautiful picture. It is so dear to my heart!
Fall Break came and went so fast, but it was so nice. I loved spending the days with Easton. After being a SAHM mom for half a year to working full time (even though I love teaching!) has been a hard transition some days/weeks so I loved our time together.
This week Easton has been sick with the dreaded stomach bug. His school called me Wednesday at my school and said he had been throwing up and was complaining of a stomach ache and a sore throat. I picked him up and he was oh so pitiful. We came home and rested until his doctor appointment at 3:20. Until that time, he hadn't ate anything and had only drank a cup of juice. He really complained of a tummy ache on the way to the doctor and the minute we walked in, he threw up everywhere. I got him cleaned up and the area cleaned up with the help of a nurse. He tested negative for strep and flu, but we are still treating him wit antibiotics for strep since his throat was red. We are waiting on the culture they sent off to come back. He was also given medicine for nausea. Thankfully they gave us a "puke pan" (as they called it) for the drive home. Sure enough, we needed it. Needless to say, I've taken off all week to stay home with it. I think we are finally seeing the light at the end of the stomach bug tunnel.
Up until today, he's only ate blueberry waffles. Yesterday I made him a Mickey Mouse waffle to brighten his spirits and he was so excited.  
This morning he cuddled on the couch with me for quite a while, but has started playing more now. It is just pitiful when your baby is sick!
