Monday afternoon, my sister-n-law called me and asked me to come over on Tuesday night to help her with the little ones, because my step-brother had to go to class. (He's taking night classes) My nephew, Colton, has been extremely sick with strep throat and was running a high temp. She was attempting to keep the baby, Caden, away from him as much as possible. So on Tuesday afternoon, I made my way to my step-brother and sister-n-law's house. I am very fortunate that they also live nearby. It has been very nice to move away from home, but still have family near.
As I arrived, I was really excited to see the boys, because it had been a week or so... Colton was feeling horrible as any one can imagine at 2 yrs. and having strep. Although, Colton was one grumpy monster, Caden was happy as a clam. My sister-n-law decided that dinner needed to be prepared and she pulled out a frozen bag dinner. I was thinking this should be interesting, and I was praying it was good. I was extremely hungry.
We tried the Bird's Eye Shrimp Pasta Primavera.
Well, I'd have to say dinner was a disaster, because it wasn't any good at all. My sister-n-law refused to eat it and so did I. So the only food they had left in the house was PB and J. We decided that we would just have a sandwich and had forgotten that my brother doesn't buy anything unless it's ORGANIC. Nothing against food being organic; I usually buy most foods organic. But Peanut Butter is something that I will NEVER buy ORGANIC. The peanut butter was grainy and absolutely yuck. I vowed right then that I would never buy anything, but Jiff Peanut Butter.
Needless to say, I didn't have dinner that night, which caused me a migraine headache. After playing outside some with Colton and bath time for both boys, we all relaxed on the couch some with a apple.
Baby Caden @ 2 months old.
He amazes me with his strength at such a young age.
Oh and Yes, he is a big boy.
Not feeling too good though!
Trying to "cheese" for his Aunt Jess.
After our relaxing time on the couch, I put Caden in his swing and he was fast asleep. Then it was time for Colton to go to bed, which was difficult since he didn't feel well. I finally left so that my sister-n-law, Kristi, could put Colton down for bed. Colton still isn't feeling the best, but we are praying that he will feel better soon.
After leaving, I went by Zaxby's (Ah! FOOD) and to Walmart to pick up a few things ( a place I hate to shop), but Oh Well..
I also picked up some beautiful flowers to put me in a better mood.
These flowers definitely brightened my kitchen up, and my mood. They are quite beautiful, and one of my favorite summertime things. After a eventful evening, I came home and played with little Aiden.
"Mom, where have you been?"
Then, we both went a crawled in bed after an exhausting day.
