Dedication, Birthdaying, Date Night, and The Aprons & Pearls Linkup

A busy week. Trying to get stuff done and maintaining a few things. Trying to build routine and momentum. Spiritual warfare is real! Just when I get going, start feeling like I am getting the ground back beneath my feet, BOOM! I feel the attack start.

Progress is happening, though not fast enough (believe me, I am okay with it, and see what all I do, but not everyone does).

We were all healthy enough to make it to church Sunday to dedicate our youngest boys to the Lord in service, and have B’s birthday party after.

My grandma, my children’s great grandma came, along with my mom, dad, brother, a sister, and some friends. My girlie had  to sit next to grandma. It was so precious. They held hands the whole service. L even got a bit of a nap in on grandma.

The party was fun. It was nice to get to talk to some friends that we have not seen in a while.

After the party my mom and sister came back to our house to watch the children (all except the youngest who stays with me) so hubby and I could catch Gone With The Wind on the big screen. I really enjoyed it. I am wondering if I can convince hubby to go see Ben Hur next month…

Then, Sunday night, our youngest and our girlie started running a fever. Last night everyone was warm.

Not much sleep has been had.

Yesterday our 2 year old tried to throw something at his sister. He missed, but hit the tv in the living room, cracking the display.

He also got a bath twice due to poopy potty accidents. Potty training is rather slow going.

It is a break week from storytime (and since I was late registering, we may not get into one of them, we are on the waitlist), so we will just be missing karate and church Wednesday night. I am praying that everyone is better by the time for karate Thursday, but we will see. My general rule is they have to be fever free for at least 24 hours.

I am making up a batch of elderberry syrup today.

I did manage to share how I use honey as a face wash the other day.

Yesterday at the grocery store I got some things to try to color eggs naturally. It should be a fun experiment for us.

On to the linkup!

  1. Winters, cold and flu season, can be hard with little ones. I remember mine seemed to pass it back and forth at times! I’m glad you and your hubby got out for a date night. I hope you get to see Ben Hur. It is one of my husband’s and my favorites! We probably watch it at least once a year. The scene where Jesus gives Judah Ben Hur a drink of water is one of my favorites of all time. I love the look on the Centurian’s face. To me, it says it all about the quiet power that must have emanated for Jesus.

  2. Hi! I’m fairly new here. I’m sorry about your TV. Less than 6 months ago our 6 year old threw a hard plastic dog bone for the dog to fetch– except he through it straight at the tv past my husband and cracked the TV. My son cried the most since he is the one that uses that tv the most…..
    Thanks for the party!
