Our weekend got off to a fabulous start. Friday evening the kids and I met Jarrod down at school and went to a promotion party for a couple of friends. There were appetizers, drinks for the adults (and stuff for the kids too), and cake. Check out Kate’s blog for a picture that showcases my son stuffing his face full of cake with both hands. Who needs a fork?
There was even a popcorn machine. All of the kids LOVED the popcorn machine.
Charlotte ate a bowl of popcorn, and after she finished, she snuggled right up to Bennett on the steps. It wasn’t long before he was feeding her!
Unofficial first date? Kate has a cute (not iPhone quality) picture of this on her blog too.
Congratulations to Kevin and Drew, and thanks for inviting us out to celebrate with you guys!
I dropped Jarrod and the kids at home after the party, and then went to pick a friend up for a supply officer spouses get together. It was great meeting new wives. Hopefully we will all get together again soon!
Saturday morning was spent cleaning up around the house: laundry, dishes, vacuuming, etc.
After lunch Jarrod took the kids out to the playground. When they got back, the kids were more than ready for quiet time in their room. Charlotte actually fell asleep, and when she woke up her eyes were crusted over with goop. Not even thirty minutes later both eyes were really red. She had been battling a runny nose the latter part of the week, so I knew that it was pink eye. Charlotte’s doctor called in a prescription for her, but since it was getting late in the evening, it wouldn’t be ready until Sunday morning. Thankfully Charlotte didn’t seem to be bothered by her eyes, and was acting pretty normal.
Sunday was another day spent around the house since we couldn’t get Charlotte out. I went and picked up her eye drops (ugh, giving an almost 3 year old eye drops IS NOT fun!).
Then we got to work on valentines for the kids to hand out at preschool.

Charlotte and I are off to see the doctor tomorrow. I’m hoping that she’s back to being healthy soon!
