What I've been up to....

My mom arrived on Friday, the 13th of March. That night we went to Chuck E. Cheese.

Saturday the 14th we went to Hobby Lobby and then took the kids to see Escape to Witch Mountain. The day went by really fast!

Sunday..... Got up, got ready for church, came home from church, had dinner, played games for the rest of the night.

Monday.... Took the kids to the Zoo then had our Family night with my mom.

Tuesday.... Got a babysitter, took my mom out to lunch and got pedicures. Had a great time!!! Tuesday night just hung out as a family.

Wednesday..... Went to my Weight Watchers meeting with my mom and kids. Came home and packed. Left for Branson, MO, at 5:30pm as soon as my DH got home from work.

Wednesday night.... Arrived at our halfway point. Stayed at an AWESOME Holiday Inn Express and took the kids swimming.

Thursday morning .... Arrived in Branson going through the Fantastic Caverns, then going to the Dixie Stampede, and the Acrobats of China.

Friday.......... My 2 year old started throwing up (YAAAAAA, FUN STUFF)...... Took my mom and the other children to Ride the Ducks, The Kirby Show, and The Spirit of the Dance while my DH stayed home with the baby.

Saturday morning ...... 4am other little boy started throwing up all over our bed. Decided to get up and get everyone ready for our 5 hour drive home. Was on the road by 7 am. Arrived home by 2pm. Nobody was sick during the drive but it started again when we got home.

Sunday..... Stayed home from church with 2 boys. My 2 year old started throwing up AGAIN (has been 48 hours now), but was finally feeling better by bedtime.

Monday... Kids back in school (YIPPEE).... Taking mom to the airport in a couple of hours........ Then back to my normal life!!


And that, my friends, is where I have been. Life has been super CRAZY!!! I am definitely going to do something in my craft room this week!!!


  1. I pray that you have health restored to your family! Dealing with all the vomit is no fun!

  2. But it sounds like you had such a nice time with family!!

    Sorry the kids got sick...they do pick the darndest times!!


  3. Good to see that you are going to get back to normal life soon. We all have those moments, that we just want to get back to. Hope you enjoyed your mom. I think everyone in the country is sick right now.

  4. Sounds like you need a vacation from your vacation. It's always nice to get out of the run, but it's always better to get back in it. Hope the "joy" doesn't spread to any more family members....

  5. Sorry to here that your kids have been sick. Have fun in your craft room this week. I pray that you will experience a lot of creativity and I´m looking forward to see what you have come up with. I have missed your blogging.

  6. sorry your kids got sick. It is never fun dealing with that! Can't wait to see what you will be working on next.

  7. Sorry to hear the kiddos are sick. I'm glad to see you had a good time with your mom. Just curios, where are you located? I'm in Lowell, AR. I noticed that you posted getting hit with an ice-storm the same day I did, so I thought you might be close, and now with your trip to Branson, I'm even more positive that you are. :) You can leave me an email if you want.

    Ps. Sorry that sounds a little stalkery, but am looking for people close by to stamp with... none of my friends are interested! Can you believe it?!

  8. Glad to hear that you all made it home safe and sound. Too bad your babies were sick...hopefully no one else will share in the fun. Can not wait to see your next blog... I have been checking both of yours to see if you were back yet. Thanks for all that you share! I just love to watch them.

  9. sounds like you had a good week.hope the kids are better.

  11. Girl, What a week!! Glad your mom came down to spend time with everyone. It is so much fun to travel and see new things. I hope you had a good time even with the bug going around. I hope everyone feels much better now!!!! I also know you took a ton of pics, because your such a great mom!!!!

  14. My husband and I went to Branson for our honeymoon. We had a blast. We also went to acrobats of china, dixie stampede, and did ride the ducks (that was my favoite) Except it took up about 6 hours to drive there, but we didn't have any kids

  15. Hope the dreaded flu has left your family now! Glad to hear you are all safe and fine. Welcome back!
