Boy Weekend all the Way!

 We celebrated Bridger's Birthday with pizza and the movie Goosebumps.  I was a little worried about it being too scary, but the boys all swore they were not that scared!  Tough guys!!  Although Cannon admited at bedtime that parts were a little "freaky".  No bad dreams, luckily:)

I ended up with a couple of extra guys for my date night!  Our family babysitters were both busy---it can be a little tricky sometimes with teenagers!  They have very important social lives to work around, you know?!
We went to our favorite pizza place Lupis and I must say I felt pretty lucky to have 3 handsome dates!  Brad treat the boys to soda (so exciting).  It was self serve and they had way too much fun mixing drink flavors. Powerade with rootbeer, anyone? YUK!

My little boys!
I love them so much.

I think having a son grown up and out of the house has made me especially tenderhearted about this younger years.  I now know how quickly little boys grow up.  
I definitely think this works in their favor, especially EVERY night when they want me to come up to tuck them in and "scrackle" (scratch/tickle) their backs.:)

Sick Day

Cannon woke up with croop yesterday and spent the day with me. 
 I don't think he was too sad about it!  Haha!
I think I have trained this little guy well--if he sees Mom with her camera, he plasters on a big grin!  He actually really did not feel good but you couldn't tell that from this picture!
I made him some of this soothing lemon honey drink that my Mom made me when I was little and didn't feel good.  I love it.  My boys don't really love it but I think they feel happy that I make it for them anyway:)  I honestly do think it helps!
 In fact, I have read so much about the awesome health benefits of lemon that I have been drinking a warm cup of water with the juice of a lemon in it first thing every morning. This is an interesting article from the Huffington Post about the benefits of Lemon Water.
