Restful Weekend

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

We had a slow and restful weekend and that is exactly what Nicklas and I needed!!

Friday was spent looking at our Cars camera that the Easter bunny left at Ganna and Granddaddy's house!

Looking at pictures makes him very tired!  He has NEVER fallen asleep like this... I couldn't believe it!
I scooped him up and we went and took a 4 hour nap!

Friday night we played with our new slide that Brooklyn handed down to Nicklas!

He was pretty nervous at first but now its no big deal at all!!  He yells 'weee' every time, I love it!

Saturday morning I made pancakes for breakfast and we laid around some more!

Its rough during allergy season!

We took another 4 hour nap on Saturday while daddy cut the grass.
We woke up from our nap and went to visit Poppy and Grammie!

Nicklas looks soo big in this picture...

Poppy found Nicklas a wagon, Nick loved riding in it!

Nick loves feeding Lucy, He will pick up ONE piece of corn and say 'here you go!' Lucy didn't like that to much!

Nick had fun with Poppy.

Thanks for the pizza Poppy and Grammie.

Sunday Jamie woke up with Nicklas bright and early and they let me sleep. 
I am still fighting off allergies and a cough... its not good.
Nick and I took another 4 hour nap on Sunday!  It was wonderful!

I know our weekend may sound boring to some but it was exactly what we needed!

Last night Kellyn and Brooklyn brought me over some beef stew and the kids played for a little bit, thanks guys!  Tonight Ganna is picking up Nicklas from school and we are eating dinner with my family, I can't wait!!

Have a great week everyone! :)

Five on Friday

Happy Friday all.


I really didn't feel like I had much of a weekend last weekend so I am very excited about this weekend!  I need to catch up on my DVR, laundry, and cuddle time with my sweet monkey!

Here are my most favorite things this Friday!!

One. A little R&R
Nicklas and I are exhausted after our Easter festivities and our long week.  We are both super excited about spending all day today in our PJ's.  He wants to catch up on Paw Patrol and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  I want to catch up on Vampire Diaries and Reign.  After that we will probably snuggle, take a nap, and have some more Easter candy!!  No plans this weekend makes us very happy!


Two. Cough Drops
Actually... I HATE cough drops... BUT... at the moment I can't live without them.  Whenever the seasons change I get sick.  Very stuffed up, coughing, can't sleep, and foggy... its not fun.  The job I have I am forced to talk ALL DAY LONG and without my trusty cough drops that wouldn't be happening!  I hate the after taste of cough drops.  Any suggestions on some that don't have that nasty after taste?!?!

Three. Lauren Conrad
I have loved Lauren Conrad since Laguna Beach.  I love her clothing line, sense of style, and all of her advice.  I always go to her website for inspiration and ideas!!  Check it out here.  I am actually wearing a pair of her skinnies now and my sister gave me one of her maxi dresses that I LOVE, thanks KK!


Four. A Child Again
A Child Again in the consignment store I use for Nicklas.  We love it.  I buy and sell here and have never had an issue.  The people who work there are amazing and friendly!!  Nicklas goes threw his clothes so fast that they look like they are brand new and thats how most of the clothes at the store are!  They sell clothes, shoes, toys, books, dvds!!  Its wonderful!!


Five. Mama's Boy
My little monkey is a true mama's boy and I love it.  I have ALWAYS wanted to have a little boy but when I was pregnant and we found out I was expecting a little boy I started to get nervous.  I mean I am a girly girl in every sense of the word.  Would I be able to connect with my little boy?!  So far it hasn't been an issue!!  Nicklas is loving and caring and he loves me so much!  I'll learn to play golf, I'll learn about trucks and tractors, I'll even play in the dirt if I have too!!!  I am his first kiss in the morning, I am his last kiss every night.  He falls asleep cuddling me and reaches for me in the middle of the night!  He gives me the biggest hugs and the sweetest kisses.  When he his hurt he wants me, when he does something he is proud of he looks for me to cheer for him.  He is my sweet little boy and I am blessed to be his mommy!

We had a busy, fun filled Easter weekend.  We are all very worn out but it was worth every minute.

Let me start by saying that boy Jamie was in charge of picture taking all weekend so if there aren't pictures of certain activities talk to him about it!! :)

I was off on Thursday but Nicklas had his Easter party at school so of course he had to go!  He brought home lots and lots of candy!  I picked him up from school early and took him to get a haircut.  There are no pictures of this because my son was HORRIBLE!  I had to hold him, he wouldn't put on the 'cape' so we were both covered in hair by the end.  The sweet girl who cut his hair, Stephanie, was so patient and so kind.  I was about to loose it but her keeping her cool and acting like it was no big deal really helped.  She got tipped 50% for being so great.  Nicklas road home topless and I drove home in my tank top that I was wearing under my shirt!  But his hair looks wonderful!!

Good Friday we sat around the house and I did laundry because I knew there wouldn't be any time for that the rest of the weekend.  Friday night Debra made dinner so we went by there for about an hour and then took dinner to Uncle Kevin.

Thank you Uncle Kevin for letting Nicklas see all the fun fire trucks and lights!

Saturday morning we went to a Easter party at our church.

I really expected Nicklas to just throw the eggs around but he would pick it up and place it in his basket!  I was soo proud!!  I think he thought he was cleaning up! ha!

Saturday evening we went to Debras side of the family for dinner.  Everyone wanted to egg hunt but it was raining... I think I ruined that for everyone when I said Nicklas would no be allowed to hunt in the cold rain.  Sorry.  It was fun seeing everyone.

Saturday night Kevin and his friend Rachel stopped by for about an hour to visit!

Sunday morning we woke up to find that the Easter bunny came to visit Nicklas.

The stash!

Nicklas cried all the way down our hallway because Jamie wouldn't carry him... then he saw his stash!

The cars puzzle and baseball bat were a big hit!!

We then went to church as a family!  It was a wonderful service!

For Easter lunch we went to my parents house!

Isn't she so pretty?!

Nicklas wanted to just run and run while we were hunting eggs!  We were all a muddy mess afterwards but it was so much fun!!

Nicklas couldn't believe that the Easter bunny visited him at Gannas and Grand daddys too!!  He was a really good boy this year!

We had a wonderful lunch!  Ganna made all of Nicks favorites... baked beans, corn, ham, rolls... he was loving it!!  

After lunch we had to rush off to see Poppys family.  

Poor boy was worn out and slept for 45 min. after we go there.  Thank you to Uncle Dale for letting me have his seat to hold Nicklas!  

We did some egg hunting here also,  Nick woke up just in time to participate!  

We got home and just vegged out in front of the TV.  I did another load of laundry and we all ate way to much candy.
I woke up Monday morning sick.  I knew we over did it!!

Thank you to my mom, dad, and kellyn for picking up Nick!

And this is how we ended last night, this picture was taken at about 7:30... we are exhausted!

Thank you to all of our families for making Nicklas feel so loved and for showering him with candy and toys!  We love you all!
