A Week in Review

I hope everyone has had a beautiful week!
What a full one we had!
Owen and I went to visit Lora in Charlotte last Saturday...
fun for me!!
My wonderful mom came to watch MnS..
and I was able to take my time coming home since my husband took over when he was done with work!
Yay Team MOMMYNEEDSABREAK!!

 Lora did a great job..she is such a blessing!!
What adoration she has for the Lord!!
Each of her pieces she prays over..
if you are in need of a word from the Lord.. take some time in her shop or over on her blog..
what contagious love she has!!
 Owen was his sweet smiley self..

 all of her lovelies..
she gave me a necklace too..i forgot to take a picture of it..
so beautiful.
a simple leaf with two beads..one rough and one smooth..
i'm remembering that He is with me in ALL circumstances!!
Thankyou so much friend..for my mini get away!!
 On Sunday..we went to the park w/ PopPop..my Dad.
This was so much fun.
We each took a kid..
no blinking.
blinking=disappearing child
do.not.blink.
 Love me a rainbow..and a sweet boy hovering overhead..

 umm.cute kid in the train..
we spent over an hour there.
the boys had a great time!
 Monday..Halloween.
Myles..Ele-ger
Sam..sweetest pirate you ever did see..arrrr
I can tell from this picture that Sam is saying the /ween/ part of happy halloween..
and Myles is saying happy...but it sounds like he is Santa Claus.. hohoho..

yup..there's my matey!

Oh..Dada pulled out all the stops for the boys..
he shows them the pepperoni..
oh boy..
the pepperoni love was in the house!!
You know how much Sam loves spaghetti??
Well, the peps is equally adored.
His mouth may or may not have touched...bit.. into the end of that thing.
Just waiting for my fresh sliced peps..with my peeps..
yup.
one punkin peep here!
Owen was spending some time on the floor.. just hangin'
Myles decided to join him.
love.
Map making with Dada.
For the love of school and all the learning going on.
Yowzers!
Wednesday...CoGat testing...
at an unfamiliar location..
with strangers..
with no accomodations..
for 2 1/2 hours..
(with lots of breaks...and a snack of popcorn and juice)
Myles Rocked it!!
He came out at the end and said in his sweet tired voice.."hi mom"
we started to walk towards the car and I asked him if he answered lots of questions and he said...
"Yup! I'm Awesome!!"
ummmm.
Yup.. You Are!!
The teacher said that at first he was saying the answers outloud..woops.
but did much better after a few reminders to (keep it down in the back row)..just write his answers.
:)
On Thursday we went back for ITBS testing..
yeah..his awesomeness was maxed out on Wednesday.
When asked to open up his test he kindly said.."no thankyou"
He spent the rest of the time in the hallway with a ( very wonderful) teacher.
I had gone to Goodwill..down the street, you know, because the first day was so awesome and Owen and I had sat there waiting for 2 1/2 hours..and Owen and I really wanted to go to Goodwill..
The teacher had called (whilst i was at goodwill)...but I ran into a friend I hadn't seen in a couple years..
and I didn't recognize the #..
What in the world..
I got back there and realized it had been the teacher..
who had called..
MOR.TI.FIED.

He is still awesome!
me..not so much.
Oh well!

Thursday was my 10 year wedding anniversary!!
We are totally official now!!
After I dropped the boys off at  therapy
(this is after taking sam to school..myles taking,but not really, his test..and
a quicky trip to goodwill..lunch in the car..and the 30 minute drive home..)
Owen and I picked up Dada..
He had gotten up at 3am for inventory at work..
and was home early..
at 2pm..
we went to a frozen yogurt place and then to Target..
I sure love this man..
he's wearing that hat..
I don't know what it is about it..but i think he looks extra handsome in it..
so we were on our date..celebrating our 10th anniversary..

he let me pick out what we got..
i chose..blueberry...and cheesecake...mmmm.
w/ fresh berries...and sprinkles (rainbow)..chocolate chips..and waffle cone pieces.
over $5.00 later..
we were in tutti frutti yogurt bliss.!!
(this looks like tut..like king tut-ti..frut-ti)
surely they mean fruit-ti!!
onward!

We picked the boys up at 6.
and went to Whole Foods Market..
Did you know they have this amazing animal "exhibit" there now.?
Yuppers!
Myles was in heaven.
We got more pepperonies for the boys..and I loaded up on my salad bar fixins..extra fruit and veggies for the boys..Lee got a hot bar dinner.. and we ate dinner out!!
like..as a whole family..
bring it!
we n.e.v.e.r go out to eat.

what a treat!
Oh-wen!
Ofcourse..Charlie was there too.
and Myles got to push his little buggy.
we were on ankle alert..cuz this kids got some work to do in the steering depo.
Love.
Back to the animal exibit.
Sammy really like these tigers!
hmm...which was Myles favorite.??
the only one.
for.evers.

My friend Ahisha, from my first job in high school, sent me this great apron..
a vintage one from her grandmother.. so pretty..I loovey it.
It has a rickrac L on it..for their name... I will think of it as standing for LOOVEY!
Thanks friend! what a sweet gift!
and my sister Jenny sent a box full of Gluten free mixes for baking and making..
I made chocolate chip pancakes for dinner...mmmm.
Thanks Aunt Jenny. We Love you!
Friday..
sweet peas for my sweet pea!!
he liked them alot!

green was representing!
to the bath he went..
Sam has been so helpful.
When Owen starts crying, he brings him a spoon..
or a bottle..
sometimes from the dirty sink..but so helpful none the less.
What a week!!
We've been painting and doing therapy..and I am in touch with a friend from elementary school..
on a similar journey as ours..
ahh.
the love.
Thanksgiving is in a couple weeks..3..
I've been doing a stitch..ing..ery..

So are the sweet peas homemade with the baby bullet? I want more info on that! And I love that you've gotten so much use out of the blanket (or at least that it appears so). :) And I love how happy everyone seems. Looking forward to spending some time together this week!
