This Weekend

Saturday Trent and Tucker played outside all morning, well Trent was actually working in the yard and Charlotte and I were inside. I was trying to get the house picked up, but Charlotte had other ideas. Trent's parents were headed back home to AZ and stopped and took us to lunch at Red Robin. I had a delicious chicken sandwich. Tucker kept occupied with a dollar store car launcher thing and Charlotte fell asleep. It was the first time in a long time that I was actually able to enjoy eating out. We said our goodbyes and headed to Sam's Club for a few things. After being inside with a screaming Charlotte for a couple minutes I resigned to waiting in the car with the baby.
I put the kids down for naps and resisted the urge to lie down and planned my Sunday School lesson while Trent did some work. When he got home we decided to order a pizza and invite some friends over. Robby and Mel McKinnon came over with their baby Gracie. You probably wouldn't guess that she is 2 weeks older than Charlotte since Charlotte outweighs her by about 2 lbs. We stayed up talking with them until almost 10 and then headed to bed.

Sunday we had church at 9am as usual and I wanted to get a picture of my cute kids all dressed up. This one turned out the best. Check out the tongue on that girl. Tucker at least managed some sort of smile and a big wet spot on his shirt. Typical. Got a love it though. We spent a good couple of hours napping. I don't know if something Tucker ate didn't sit well or he picked up a bug in nursery,but he spent the rest of the night telling us his belly hurt and he was going to puke. He was momentarily distracted by America's Funniest Home Videos and finally hurled shortly before going to bed. He was feeling much better after that, and I was so glad. It is terrible watching your little guy feeling so bad and not being able to do much besides hold him and softly tickle his belly.

Yeah, Charlotte looks like she could take on Gracie any day. Plus she has to defend herself from an older brother all the time, so she'd be prepared for it.

You are looking good as usual! Glad you had a great weekend without us. I stopped by on my way to work Friday to say good bye, but you were gone or asleep. Hopefully we can hang out this week and Liam can play with your cute kids!

Steph, are you challenging my "best cousin-in-law" status? I hope not (for your sake).

I forgot to tell you that I met Mel and Gracie in AZ. Nice little family. Charlotte's tongue looks Jensen. Brandon's is like a cow's and Alan's is like a giraffe.
