Our Weekend In Pictures

This past weekend Nik was at the Regional Festival of Life (youth event) in Boston at Eastern Nazarene College. He left Wednesday and returned home Sunday evening. Although he was pretty tired when he returned…he had a great time and it was a really great event of talent/sport competitions.

Nik with other leaders from Upstate District

Nik and our District Superintendent, Kevin

This was during one of the services where they gathered
all the seniors who were attending and prayed over them.

So while Nik was away…this is what we did!

We were invited to dinner on Wednesday night and our friends
introduced Jaxen to the original Nintendo. Cool, right?!
He didn’t love it…but us adults had a good time playing. Brought back lots of memories!

Thursday night, while in the bathtub, Jaxen started playing with Zane’s hair.
Then he told me “Mom, Zane has girl hair”.
Haha! I laughed so hard!
I guess it’s time for that first haircut!

One of the boys favorite things to do is to play in Jaxen’s room after bath time.
We will stay in there, playing, for an hour before bed and they have the greatest time.

Friday was St. Patrick’s Day and we were invited to dinner that night as well
to enjoy some Corned Beef and Cabbage.
I made Irish Soda Bread and Fruit Loops Treats to go with it.

Zane and I laid low that day, but we were all wearing green!

I tried to get a cute picture of the boys…this was the best I got!

Saturday morning Zane enjoyed some rocking while Jaxen and I got things
ready to go for our fun in the snow (pictures in the last blog post).

That night, the boys had some fun in their bubble bath!

After bath, we played in Zane’s room before bed!

At one point, Jaxen put me in “Jail” (a tent) and I was thankful for the few minutes
of peace…but then the “good guy” and “bad guy” joined me! 
And let me tell you, it was not peaceful in that tiny little Paw Patrol tent!

Jaxen decided that he needed to sleep with me “so that I was not lonely by myself”.
It was sweet, so I let him bring his toys in, and sleep in my bed. 

And about 1 hour after those pictures were taken, he woke up throwing up.
And as bad as I felt for him, I was also upset because I just washed my sheets!
And then I had to re-wash them the next day before Nik got his sick germs.
But back to my sick boy…
the throwing up continued through the night.
He finally felt better and we stayed home on Sunday to recover. 
I sent him to school on Monday, and then he was home again Tuesday.
Back to school Wednesday and today.

Anyways…on Sunday afternoon, this is how Zane and I felt…

chugging all the caffeine! Haha!
We were all glad when Nik got home :)
