Life 2011 | Week 8

Monday, February 14, 2011

We didn't do much for Valentine's Day. The kids had their parties at school and we just had a special dinner. I was going to make heart-shaped meatballs, but I ran out of time. So instead we just shaped the spaghetti like a heart and then added our sauce and meatballs and garlic bread. We had yummy chocolate cake with ice cream for dessert. We had a good family home evening about loving one another and it was just a nice evening at home.

The kids were so excited to have a picnic at their school tonight. We picked up a bucket of chicken, potatoes and gravy, biscuits, and rootbeer from KFC and it was wonderful not to cook and still have dinner done. We were able to listen to an hour of storybook telling and eating our picnic. We were sad that Joey couldn't come with us, but after it was over we got to go give some dinner to him at work.

Sometimes its just hard being a parent and having to use discipline. Beth had big plans today to have a friend over and she's been so excited. Unfortunately, because of some accidents that she has had, we had to cancel the playdate. Beth cried for the rest of the afternoon but after some talks with Dad and Mom, I think she is doing better and being able to see that her actions have consequences.

JJ is so excited to now be a Bear in Cub Scouts. Thursday evenings now mean Scout Time and JJ has really been enjoying it. They got to go to the Public Library tonight and they learned about the things that happened on the day they were born and some other important dates. JJ loves anything involving being on the computer - so it was a fun time for him.

Last Week, something started developing with JJ about dinner time. I thought it was just something that he would get over - but unfortunately it has just gotten worse. My great eater - who was always eating us out of house and home - has turned into a non-eating, nervous and constantly spilling boy. It has kind of upset and stressed the whole family. We don't know what is going on. The only way we can get JJ to eat is to spread out a blanket in the living room and let him eat there. We are seeing his doctor next week and I hope we can figure this out. Everything else is normal about him - but as soon as it is meal time - cold sweats, racing heart, purposely spilling, and other things develop in JJ. It's really been a hard week and I hope we can help him get over this soon.

A rainy/snowy Saturday and no plans to go out. I didn't feel well all day and we just stayed home. The kids had to find something to do and we discovered them in the kitchen with a broom and their imaginations....they were creating the alphabet with their bodies and other household items. It was so cute!

My turn to give the lesson to my Primary class today. It went well, though it got done way too early. Beth's class ended up without a teacher today - so they joined my class as well. We had so many leftovers today and it was so nice not to have to cook. We watched "The World's Greatest Athlete" for our movie night and the kids seemed to enjoy it.

And here is my weekly layout:

I used the XOXO - My Creative Life February 2011 Mega Kit - Week 3 to create this layout!
