our weekend

We had a topsy turvy weekend. Friday afternoon Will's face turned an unnatural shade of gray )or is it grey?) Anyhow, luckily we were right by the bathroom. We spent almost the next 24 hours very close to the bathroom after that.
Despite being sick, he still got up at his normal 6ish. Finally just as the sun was coming up, I dragged myself downstairs to get him some toast. I had to grab my camera when I saw the sky. It was like hot pink cotton candy! I guess if you get up at the a$$ crack of dawn, at least you see some gorgeous skies!

On Saturday, I made him stay in his bed. We took the portable TV/DVD player up there so he could watch movies. Later on in the afternoon when he was feeling better, he was sad that the TV was going back into storage! He kept saying, "This is the best day ever!" uummm yeah....best day= barely holding down toast, apples and watered down ginger ale + NONSTOP movies in his room. Oh yeah, that is the definition of a five year old's best day!

I am just so glad that no one else got sick! That is my best day.


By today, all was well. It was gorgeous day outside. There are finally enough leaves on the ground to make a mini-pile. With a little help, they had a small pile of leaves. Enough to hide Livi in....

Happy Sunday, y'all....did you do something fun?

I didn't even see Livi in the pile at first. That's cute. Looks like tons of fun. We don't get any leaves on the ground around here. :(

Pink Cotton Candy is right! That's a beautiful sky scape! I hope Will is feeling much better. Aside from the trips to the bathroom, I wouldn't mind sitting in bed watching TV all day either. LOL!

What a great way to end the weekend, playing in the leaves!

There better be a nice perk for being up that early!!
Hope he feels better. No fun to have the sickies around holiday time.

Went and saw BOLT! Oh my word it was hilarious.

Finished up being sick ourselves (yeah!) and got the littles some cute fall boots and new sneakers- both outgrew everything at the same time- isn't that just the luck. Got some Christmas shopping done and then hubby and I went to a wedding on Sunday. Busy but productive. I'm looking forward to a more relaxed pace this week!

So glad dear Will is better and nobody else got sick. I had a nice day in Summerville but didn't do anything remarkable.

What a beautiful sunrise! Glad Will's better, he and Livi look like they had a ton of fun in the leaves!
