We've been some sickies this week. Morgan was patient zero in our house- he seemed to be pretty sick for a couple days last week. It's sooo great how he can verbalize everything so well now. He can say "I feel sick". I want to talk about all the great things he says now but that would just take forever! But I'll say that he can totally talk now. Complete sentences All the time. You can have a legitimate conversation with the boy and it's the funnest!
Anyways, then Josh was sick, then me, then Jaclyn, then Pearl. It's that nasty stomach flu. Ugh, I hate hate hate it. So there's been a lot of just chillin', cuddling, and crying. But I think we're pretty much out of it now.
It was such a bummer too, because Josh and I had this super awesome (and rare) date weekend planned this last weekend. Friday night was sushi and a movie, Saturday night was a couples church thing that had dinner, an improv group, silent auction, and dancing. Two nights in a row without the kiddies is kind of unprecedented. So we were like, suuuper excited. Then when it came time we still weren't 100% feeling good... but we went to both of those things anyway!... probs not a good idea? But we just did sushi and no movie, then only stayed for dinner at the other thing. Oooooh how I've missed sushi. I think it had been a YEAR since we've had it! How wild is that? Needless to say I was excited. It did not disappoint. Not one bit. Mmmm.
And we really wanted to make it to that church thing because it seemed like fun aaaand we already paid for it... It was a fundraiser for the youth. It felt wrong to have the money go to waste! The dinner was delish. But our favorite was looking at the silent auction stuff. It made me love where we live even more. It was all stuff people donated and included things like raw honey, farm fresh eggs every week for 3 months, a beehive, crane service, and my favorite- a newborn pig! Yay for living in farmland. But for real, I love it. It Josh and I had more monies, we totally would have made good on some of that awesomeness.
It was the best being out with my man. I'm the luckiest woman on earth. That Joshua.... I just love him so much. And I really appreciate his manly beard-growing abilities of late.
We havent had a picture together in forevs so I made him take one with me. Photo cred to Jaclyn. Taking pictures isn't really his favorite thing in the world. This is how he rebelled:
The joke is on him, I think they're cute.
