What a Week!

Our week got off to a bit of a rocky start. Abigail was complaining of a “sore stomach”on Sunday morning, but I wasn’t sure what was going on quite yet. Right before church, I felt her forehead and she was really hot. 🙁 She stayed home with Paul while I took Joseph to church. In the evening, she threw up a couple of times. Luckily, once that was done, she managed not to throw up anymore. Her fever stayed around until Monday night, so I kept her home both Monday and Tuesday. She was back to normal on Wednesday, so life was good. In other news, Joseph lost his first molar and I hosted book club (and made tasty food for it, as you’ll see). Today was a fun day, too. Paul had a day-trip up to Dallas for a meeting (he flew up this morning and is currently flying back as I type this), so I decided to fill up our day with something unexpected. We decided that it would be fun to go to IKEA and walk around. I grabbed a couple small things I needed and the kids each came home with a new stuffed animal, haha. Once we got home it was business as usual (laundry, laundry, laundry…it always seems to catch up to me on Saturdays), but I did break in my mini-loaves pan and made some mini-loaves of pumpkin bread, which was fun.

She spent a lot of Sunday on the couch with a bowl close by.
Much of Monday was spent the same way. Luckily she started to feel a bit better by Monday night. I kept her home on Tuesday only because she hadn’t been fever-free for a full 24 hours yet.
Wiggling his loose tooth. I think it fell out the next day at school. He brought it home in a plastic bag.
I made fresh rolls for book club.
I also made apple cider doughnuts…
…and used my blender to make…
…pumpkin pie hummus!
The spread for book club: doughnuts, M&Ms (the book was set during WWII, so I wanted to have a candy that was specific to the time period), rolls with butter and homemade strawberry jam, and the pumpkin pie hummus (with ‘Nilla wafers and gingersnaps…I bought both of those, haha). Oh, and look at my pretty butter dish!I decided at the last minute that I wanted one and luckily Walmart was able to provide me with one that was very reasonably priced!
I love the sky in the mornings when we go for our walks!
Stopping for a water break at the halfway point of our walk.
She wanted to take “silly selfies”.
This is one of my favorites. She can be so fun!
My geraniums have just exploded the last little bit!
This was on the grass in front of the kids’ school…it made me tear up a bit. I love how much San Antonio loves our military!
It was rather chilly on Friday morning. There was even frost on the tips of the grass.
I used a pancake mold to make fun-shaped eggs for the kids one night.
My mini-loaves pan. I love that it bakes eight loaves at once.
Look at those cute little loaves! I want to say that they’re about three inches long each.

  1. You are extraordinary! Candy to go with the time! I had no idea M&Ms were that old. I do remember the commercials when I was a kid,the chocolate diving into a pool or something like that and “melts in your mouth and not in your hands”

    1. Yes! They were originally released in 1941 just for the military rations at first (specifically because the candy coating made it less likely to melt). Interesting, right?
