Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Ours was as good as it could be with the unseasonably cold temperatures we had - only a high of 60 Friday ... what the heck happened to summer? It was okay though because we got to meet up with the Lund Family at Chuck E Cheese. It was fun to finally meet a blogging mom I 'know' so much about by reading her site. Her children were so beautiful and well behaved ... and I was happy to see Jaden and Greta eventually hit it off once their shyness wore off as well ... I took some good pictures of the girls and of course a couple cute pictures of Peter ... he is so darn cute. Charlotte and Peter hit it off and I did see a flirty smile on Charlotte's lips at one point - UhOh! It was a fun way to spend a chilly day and it was great to meet Lynda and talk in person - Lynda we will have to get the girls together again soon! Jaden told everyone about her new friend Greta - it was so cute! Oh and guess what else - I got a replacement bear snuggy for Charlotte - it was like I never lost it in the first place ... phew!
Yesterday we had a BBQ at the house. I also got my new appliances delivered and COOKED on a stove for the 1st time in 2 weeks. It was glorious. The dishwasher and microwave hood get installed tomorrow. Jason is staying home to wait for the installation and it came at the perfect time since Poor Little Charlotte is feeling pretty crummy. I swear yesterday she cried more in 1 day than she has her entire life. Evetually my friend Heathr and I took her to Urgent Care where she was diagnosed with another ear infection. She got put on Zithromax since she is allergic to the cillans. Last night her smiles returned and she felt a bit better after a VERY long night of perfect sleep. Today she looks better but she sounds horrible. She has a cough that has stolen her voice ... alls you hear is a little whisper when she tries to make noise or cry - it is pretty sad! I am hoping after another day home tomorrow she will be feeling better soon.
Jaden had a sleepover Friday with Alanna and they had a fun time doing makeovers and crafts. It was a nice night for a sleepover so she set up her tent in the bedroom and they ate popcorn and watched a movie. They play well together and (sometimes) it is fun to hear them talking ... though they so sound like teenagers - scary!
Well I hope you all had a nice weekend ... I will post pictures of the kitchen on Tuesday once ALL my appliances are in and functional - Whoo hoo ...
Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my mom today ... they are up at my brothers beach house in Maine eating lobster and relaxing I hope - she deserves it but we wish we were they this summer ... next year for sure! Have a Great night!
Love ~ The Clark Family of Four ~ Rebekah, Jason, Jaden and Baby Charlotte!
