Sick Days

Getting sick really stinks. It wears me out. I started out with a touch of a cold and got totally slammed with a full on chest cold/flu that took my energy and voice with it. My voice is finally back, but after about a day of me thinking that I was getting better I just realized that my cold/flu was just shifting to another area. It's all in my sinuses now. I also have a really exciting cough that keeps me up at night. 

Good Grief Charlie Brown!

Anyone else sick? I am not doubting it. Tis the season for it. :) 

I wouldn't pass up the cold for hotter days though. I'll accept my yearly cold/flu for some crisp air, sweaters, falling leaves and hot cocoa under a blanket on the couch. Fall and Winter have so much character to them.  Elena loves it too! Christmas is her favorite holiday. She always gets excited to put up the Christmas tree and see all the lights outside. It's so great to see her face light up with joy when we pass a house in the car that has Christmas displays up. She exclaims, "Mommy! Daddy! Look! It's Pristmas!" Yes, 'Pristmas' is translated Christmas. :) Too cute.

Well, I better get going. 

P.S. Please pray for my dad. He is in the hospital with a bad respiratory infection and pneumonia.

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her

I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.
