Well, I wish I had lots of exciting things to tell you all but unfortunately, I lead a very boring life most days.LOL Wednesday was sooooo cold here that I wouldn't allow any of us to leave the house. We are still recovering from this cold and I felt that going anywhere, even just outside would be a mistake. I guess I over did it the day before because I was also feeling pretty worn out. I ended up resting and the older kids were able to finish all their school work for the day. The littles were not happy.lol They pretty much ran amok all day and I could tell that they were going to need some major outside time the next day to make up for it.
Thursday was supposed to still be cool but not a high of 50, so when my Mom called and asked if we'd like to go out to lunch I said absolutely!lol It took us a while to get out of the house, finding jackets and warm clothes for everyone and when we finally opened the front door to leave, it was warm outside.lolol We went to Golden Corral and the littles ate really good. Isaac hasn't been eating again lately so having him really fill up was great! My Mom suggested the park and we all thought it was a great idea. O.k. everyone besides Allison thought it was a great idea. I'm finding it sad that she's growing up and not finding the park to be her cup of tea any longer. It has been a big part of our lives for so long. Oh well, we all went and the three youngest had a great time. You could tell that it was exactly what they needed after being cooped up for so long. We went to Mom's afterwards and hung out. She invited us for dinner and it was terrific! She makes the best Fried Chicken. After dinner, I did the dishes for her and then packed everyone up and went home. The littles were tired but you could tell they had a great day.lol Isaac was so wound up from all the activity, he didn't go to sleep until 11pm. Jon spent most of that time playing with him. lol He made a tent out of blankets and Isaac had a blast. We had NO temper tantrums all day!!! WOW! What a blessing! We finally just threw him in bed with us and he was asleep in less than 30 seconds.lol We all slept in this morning. It was a big day for all of us and everyone was happy for the extra rest. I'm hoping that today will be a good day. I am deeply grateful for the good day yesterday. It's been a long time since I've seen my little guy instead of tantrum boy and it was really nice to see him. Hope he stops by again sometime.lol
Well, that's it. I have no plans for today other than school but who knows, maybe we'll have something fun happen. If not, I'll take some pictures.LOL
