Just a whole lot of randomness

*(This was written on Friday night not Saturday; so I am seeing them today!) Tomorrow I get to see my little sister, my brother-in-law, and Kylie, Alaina & little Jason. Jack has been here for almost a week now and he's been a blast to have around! :o) And, Charlie's side of the family is having a cook out tomorrow night. Looking forward to that & the girls playing with the cousins. :o)

Claire has a severe sore throat and I am starting to feel the same way. Claire began running fever today while we were on a shopping trip with my Mom and so right now she is in the bed recuperating and feeling pretty miserable. I hope that we don't have strep throat. Please pray that it isn't that and if it is that we will recover soon. Strep is also very dangerous for pregnant women. Lily feels fine, so far, but if sissy has it, she will get it, too.

Charlie is feeling better, for now. I hope he continues to feel better. :o) Work has been stressful lately but he is handling it very well.

We are off to church camp starting Sunday. It's family camp and we are really excited to see familiar faces and meet new ones again this year. I will have to dedicate an entire post to church camp sometime this week or next. Promise.

Went shopping with my Mom today. It was a LONG trip (1 & 1/2 hr. drive). We bought things for church camp and I got some maternity jeans for $8 and a pair of capris for $7. I also got a nice t-shirt for $8 and some cute flip-flops! :o) I found some tank tops and sundresses for the girls at around $4 a piece. What a great shopping day!!! :o) All at my favorite store, TARGET!!! YAY!! Can you tell that shopping makes me happy?!

We ate lunch at Cracker Barrel; love that place. :o) My chef salad was great, as usual but just not the same with no tomatoes. Ah, well.

I did miss out on ice cream at Coldstone Creamery. We meant to stop but the kids were so tired and Claire felt bad so we just drove on home. Maybe next time. Seriously, you need to try their ice cream. Oh, so good....

I also did not get to go to Bath & Body works (they are having a HUGE sale right now; 3 bubble baths for $10) I SO wanted to go but alas, the kids did not feel well, so, no go. Maybe soon.

But, I had fun anyway and I got out of the house for awhile. I really needed that. I found some oh, so cute, cupcake things at Cracker Barrel and I am going to start saving up! If anyone wants to buy me anything, there you go!!! LOL. I am just joking. :o)

Well, off to bed to read my bible and pray and talk with my husband. I am not trying to sound all super spiritual, either. That's what we have REALLY been trying to do lately!

*one more thing; Drew now keeps his feet in my rib cage and my belly button popped today!!! :o) Hard to breathe now and impossible to bend over, haha.

Love,
Julie
