Midweek Randoms

Do you ever get so out of practice of doing something that it's hard to get started again? This is what I have done with writing. I've been so exhausted that I come home and get in the bathtub...or I read...or I eat bonbons on the couch (okay I don't really do that...but I'm tempted).

So this is me getting things back on track! Here are all the Midweek Randoms from the rest of the month of November!!

The month of November and December, my husband traveled A LOT. A LOT A LOT! He was gone 26 days! And, while I think I'm pretty good at single-parenting it, it is not something I'd like to do regularly. YUCK!

When he came back in town, we planned a date night! I needed to get away from the kiddos and enjoy a sushi night with my husband! Mmmm.
He is the most adorable boy in the restaurant, after all!
We also took the kids to see the Peanut movie! They loved it and the kids behaved well. 
For Connor's school Thanksgiving Feast, he had to bring in a dish based on his heritage. We don't really have anything we make that is part of our heritage. I'm German and Irish and Scottish...but we don't cook anything that has been passed down from our heritage (I should also mention that my husband is German but he doesn't cook...so that was ruled out! Haha). So, we decided to have Connor make my Aunt Karen's famous seven layer cookies. They are a staple in our house for special occasions! Connor wrote about her and he and I had lots of conversations about her - how loving she was, how much she loved him, how she'd make these cookies every Thanksgiving and Christmas, how much Grandfather loved her, how missed she is. He even wanted me to print out the photo of my Aunt holding him when he was a baby to bring in with the dish! While she isn't here with us anymore, I loved that we got to continue on her memory and I promised Connor that he could be our seven layer cookie expert from now on!
When my husband wasn't traveling, we were trying to soak up every single second of time together we could - from snuggles in the car on the way to Costco...to coffee dates in bed with a six-year-old who wakes up with the rising son.
When hubby was traveling, my mom graciously let us come over for dinner a couple times so that I didn't have to add cooking dinner onto my already too long list of to-do's. Isn't she awesome?!?
We also had something else pretty exciting happen! Aiden got his vaccines. Haha! He was so excited. I'm not even kidding. He told all his friends at school...he told his teacher...he even wanted to tell people random people walking past at Target. I thought it was going to be a disaster, because of how excited he was. But he did so well. He didn't have a single tear. Not one. WHAT?!? How is that possible?
At the very end of the month, thankfully when hubby was back in town, my sweet Isabella came down with the stomach flu! It was heartbreaking and hubby couldn't make it home to get her in time - before I had to go to work. So I had to take her with me to work (and then hubby met me in the parking lot). Isn't that the worst feeling in the world? Poor sweet baby!!
