Nice title, right? I couldn’t think of a better one…because…well, this post is about crafting and throw up. 🙂
I got to spend the weekend with Rachel, Kimberly, Megan and the sweet girl’s who were attending Craft Weekend. I helped thread sewing machines, fixed sewing machines, led a craft, went to the barn and found some treasures, met some sweet new friends, ate Kimberly’s delicious food, stayed up way too late for me, and even squeezed in some crafting of my own. It was a great weekend.
I didn’t take very many pictures so you will have to just read Megan’s blog whenever she posts the Craft Weekend pictures. Here are the girl’s listening to the all the craft directions. These girls knew how to craft!
And here are a few of my Instagram pics. There is just something about piles of craft supplies that just makes you smile.
I was feeling a little yucky at Craft Weekend…but no, I did not throw up. Thank goodness. Griffin had been a little under the weather already and then over the weekend Levi got the flu. He threw up A LOT. I’ll spare you the details. Let’s just say his dad deserves an award for holding down the fort under those conditions while I was gone. I kept texting and saying that I really would come home if he needed me, but he reassured me that he had everything under control. Super dad for sure.
We thought Levi was getting better Sunday but he threw up again that night. Thankfully there has been no throw up since. He was still feeling pretty yucky yesterday, so he spent a lot of the day on the couch. At one point I looked over and he was asleep. You know two year olds are sick when they fall asleep on the couch, right? I don’t think that has ever happened!
He looked so cute so I had to take advantage of the rare moment and take a few pictures.
There is just something about a sleeping two year old in rainbow dino jammies.
Joel and I were laughing about how Levi is just like his daddy when he is sick…milking it for all it is worth. Joel may be super daddy but he does not get any awards when he is a sick daddy. Sorry honey, but you know it is true! 🙂
While Levi was asleep, Griffin and I snuck outside to swing. The weather the past two days has been gorgeous. It has been a total bummer that the boys have been sick and we have been stuck inside. We’ve been sneaking out as much as we can when they are feeling up to it.
We can’t figure out what color Griffin’s eyes are. I am still calling them blue even though they are definitely not a true blue. They have a little brown speck in them…but not totally brown. I just don’t know what color they are??
A little blurry, but he was cracking me up with his faces.
I left the weekend feeling thankful. Thankful for a husband who lets me get away even when he is left to take care of sick kids. Thankful for new friends. Thankful for the outlet that crafting is…and that God made us to create. Thankful that I got to come home to my boys…throw up and all (although I missed most of the throw up). Thankful that I am a mama who is needed at home even though we’ve been stuck inside on these gorgeous days. Just thankful. Maybe I should have called this post ‘thankful’ instead of ‘crafting & throw up’. But that wouldn’t have peaked your curiousity as much, would it have? 🙂
No matter what this week looks like for you, I hope you can look around and find things to be thankful for too.
