I don't have great pictures or many, but what I have I love. We had the opportunity to hang out with my sister Christy and her kids and then also got to go to Enid to see Jeff's sister Andrea and Reagan too. They both live far away (TX and CO respectively) and so it was a treat to be able to hang out together!
Our days are random and sometimes slow. But our weeks fly by. We had so much going on this week, I am thankful for digital age and opportunities to take quick snap shots. Most thankful for my family and the moments we have to stop time, mostly with smiles!
One silly thing from today...Jeff and the kids were in the kitchen (and he'd just given them all a sucker) and I came walking in. Jackson said, "mommy you need to start making some decisions, you're giving too many decisions to daddy today" Which was true, I was all mommy-ed out and definitely let Daddy take control today since he was finally home with us (it's been a long and VERY busy week for him). Jeff said, "buddy, pretty sure you wouldn't have a sucker in your hand right now had mommy been making all the decisions..." We all laughed. And since it was an hour past rest time start time, yes, they most definitely wouldn't have been having a sucker in their hands... But it was worth the extra 4 minutes it took them to eat them and letting Daddy be the really cool guy for awhile. We are so blessed with such a hard working Daddy who loves us all so well and does a great job of balancing life and work.
