A Weekend At Home

So I'm back...sort of.  The posts will still probably be a little sparse...but I've missed documenting our lives & I honestly need an excuse to take just a few pictures! 
With Elyse having the croup, we quickly adjusted our weekend plans to include basically nothing.  We had plans on Friday night that we postponed until this week and ended up spending Friday night at home eating leftovers for dinner & putting Elyse to be early. 
Saturday Nick & I were both off work so we lounged around the house as a family of 3 just taking it easy.  The youth at our church were hosting a Valentine's Banquet on Saturday evening and originally we were going to head to that because they were providing childcare as well; however, we didn't want to expose all the other kiddos to Elyse's sickness so we dropped Elyse off at my in-law's house. 
We had a lovely pasta dinner, a quick version of the Newlywed game, & some worship before Hubby & I had to leave.  With Elyse being sick we didn't know how well she would go down on her own so we headed out a few minutes early.  I managed to take not a SINGLE photo, which I've decided is ok...sometimes it's nice to just sit back and enjoy the company & the fellowship! 
Sunday morning we decided to stay home from church to let Elyse rest up some more.  Our church has an iCampus so we were able to watch a live stream of the service while sitting in the comfort of our home and while Elyse napped away.  She took a LONG nap, and we actually had to wake her so we could eat lunch. 
After lunch we headed out to enjoy the warm temps, but the wind was ridiculous!!!  We took Elyse for a spin in her first car & she LOVED it!  I can see us spending lots of hours outside in her Cozy Coupe once Spring arrives!
I've already got crocus blooming and it's not even the middle of February!
All set up with her trailer & everything...

Daddy pushing her along!

Beep, beep!!
Hubby had a meeting at church and then went to lead our small group while Elyse & I stayed at home.  With her taking such a long nap in the morning, she basically refused her afternoon nap so I was afraid it was going to be a LONG evening before we got to bedtime.  She had her moments, but we managed to make it through dinner & a nice long bath before she crashed at 7:15! 
Thankfully even when she's sick she's still in great spirits!  Oh how I love this little girl!

Sick babies are the worst. I hope she's feeling better. Mac's been a snotty coughing teething drooling slimy disgusting mess these days. I don't even remember what's it's like not to be covered with some kind of baby slime. Love the driving photos!
