This Weekend:

You guys are never gonna guess where I spent my Friday morning...


This makes THREE weekends in the same month where one of my family members has ended up in the ER.

This time it was my dad.

He had another bowel obstruction {ouch!} and they had to go in with an Ng tube and suck out the gunk.

Happy to report that he is back home tonight and doing much better now.
{Fingers crossed!}

They say things happen in 3's right?
Let's hope this is the last of our hospital episodes.

The workers basically just high five us and call us by name now when we walk into the hospital.
{I kid, I kid.}

* Errands after the hospital to some of my favorite places...



I swear, if I had a Trader Joe's down the road from me, I'd have their fresh flowers on my kitchen table every day of the week.  I just LOVE their floral selection.

* Friday night, Joe worked late, so the kids and I met some of our favorite friends for frozen yogurt.


On our drive there {just down the road} I was reminded of HOW MUCH I LOVE where we live.

Our windows were rolled down and it was completely gorgeous outside.

* Saturday morning we did chores and I helped the boys practice their piano lessons.


You guys!
Does anyone else's blood boil when you sit down to 'help' your kids practice the piano? 

Just me? Awesome. Mom of the Year over here.

I've played the piano pretty much my entire life and there is a reason why I PAY someone else to teach them.

SIGH.

* I went to the cutest baby shower Saturday afternoon...


Are those hanging umbrellas not THE CUTEST DECORATIONS EVER????? I was dying.


It was a BUNNY theme and the hostess MADE these darling little flower pots {the petals are diapers!} and that's a bunny BUM popping out of the pot.  So cute, right?

* Date night dinner at one of our favorite local joints before attending the adult session of our Stake Conference.

I left feeling uplifted and inspired.
It was one of those meetings, you just didn't want to end.

Elder Ulisses Soares from the Presidency of the Seventy spoke to us and I'm pretty sure I could listen to him speak ALL day long.  He had the sweetest Brazillian accent and his message spoke directly to my heart.

I. Loved. It.

* More Stake Conference on Sunday.
Such big changes happening on our side of town.
It was another awesome meeting.

* Sunday night dinner at my parent's house.
My mom made my favorite: Pot roast, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans and rolls.

No matter how much I think I've perfected the art of cooking a pot roast - - my mom's ALWAYS tastes better than mine. 


Playing the card game 'Old Maid' over there is pretty much a must. My kids die laughing every time!

On tap for this week:

* The kiddos finish off their winter semester and then the next week starts their Spring Break - can you even believe it???

* March! How is this even possible?

* Decorating for Easter. Can't wait.
This year Easter just so happens to fall on Joe and I's anniverary - so it's an extra special day ;)

* Carson's living wax museum on Thursday.
He gets to dress up as Alice Cooper.
To say he is excited is an understatement.

* Hosting a Teacher's Breakfast on Friday.
