Weekend Recap

My weekend started early Friday morning.
Olivia, my Nanny & I went to Murray to eat at Dumplins
and then went to Wal-Mart to do some grocery shopping.
Here's Olivia before we left.
I just love this little outfit. =)
After some good food and shopping,
we came back home and
spent a much needed quiet afternoon at the house.
Since it's been pretty chilly outside,
we decided to just stay in for the night and
I made some chicken noodle soup.
My parents came over and ate with us
and mom & I worked on Owen's curtains in his room.
(I'll have to post some pics later)
After they left, this was the scene of Ben & Olivia.
She is such a mess.
She will lay in the floor with her head on pillows, her stuffed animals,
blankets, anything soft and make the cutest little face.
During one of her 100th times of doing this,
Ben laid down in the floor beside her.
Too precious. =)
it was pouring down rain, cold rain, at that, but that didn't stop us,
we decided to take Olivia to see Santa at the mall.
I wasn't really sure how she would do.
I was hoping for a cute "happy" picture of her and "Ho Ho,"
but as you can tell from the picture above,
that was not the case.
She did not like Santa.
So all of us had to get our picture taken with Santa.
(Yeah, it looks real lovely, not so much).
After the lovely Santa melt-down,
we went to eat lunch and came home and relaxed.
It was a nice quiet evening at home.
we woke up to it snowing!
Our first snow of the year!
I don't know why, but I've been one of those crazy people
who has been wishing and dreaming of SNOW!! =)
So finally, it's here. YAY!
So anyways, we got up and went to church
and then I needed to go back to Wal-Mart to get some
more milk and extra food so we wouldn't have to get out anymore.
Before we left for church
I put some pinto beans on in the crock-pot.
I don't know what it is about winter
and the cold weather and the snow,
but I was CRAVING a warm, comfort-food type of meal.
So when we got home,
I fixed some mashed potatoes with gravy, cornbread,
added summer sausage to the beans and baked a picnic ham
& then I made some chocolate chip cookies.
It's a good thing I don't have cravings like that more often
because Ben & I would end up weighing 500 lbs. Ha.
But, boy it sure was good.
Last night, my parents came over again and ate with us.
They took Olivia home with them to spend the night.
I'm so glad they did because this morning we woke up
and it's 10 degrees outside!!
Yes, it is COLD!!
So I'm glad I didn't have to get
my little sweetie pie out this morning.
Thanks Mom & Dad!! =)
I hope everyone had a good weekend!
I know we sure did!


Oh by the way, please be praying for us.
We finally have my c-section scheduled for December 30th
unless I happen to go into labor before then.
I go back to the doctor today,
just for a check-up,
so we'll see.
