The Weekend...

Friday nights are family nights and this one included roasting marshmallows, movies and pulling out the couch bed. It was like 75 degrees in our house but we opened the windows, turned on the air and had a fire anyway because that's how we roll. We had the chocolate marshmallows and boy are they good!

On Saturday, we attended 3 birthday celebrations with one for my niece being at our house. It was just a small family thing. Prestley really enjoyed spending time with her cousin. She doesn't get to see her often enough. They are so cute together. We were on the go most of the day so I really didn't get any pictures.

Saturday night, after all the festivities, Chris went to play poker and a few of my friends brought their kids over to hang out a while. After everyone left, I was getting ready to get in bed when something really strange happened. All the lights were off and I was leaning over on the bed trying to plug my phone into the charger when I felt the bed start shaking. I thought Prestley might have snuck back into the room and climbed up on it but it wasn't her. I stood up and felt kind of disoriented and thought for a second, I must be going crazy. I got into bed and a few seconds later my phone starts ringing. It was my brother in law asking if I just felt the earthquake. Yes, EARTHQUAKE!!!! Holy, cow! Yes, I felt it but I thought I was crazy. Turns out I wasn't. I immediately called Chris and told him to get home because I was freaked out by it. It really was the strangest feeling and I hope we don't have any more.

On Sunday, we got up and got ready for church. Ignore the picture of me, but if you look in the background, you'll see someone stealing my shoes.



She's making a fashion statement!




After church, we met 30, yes 30, of the Stovall clan at El Chico in Town East mall for lunch and that's not even half of them...lol. There was a pet shop across from the restaurant that the kids hung out at to kill time. We got more than we bargained for when they left with some sort of bugs on them. We still aren't sure what they were but we found at least 4 different looking tiny little bugs crawling on Prestley's back. She was complaining of being itchy and scratching herself until she bled. On the way home we pulled the van over and took all her clothes off and started inspecting and that's when we saw the bugs. I hate any kind of bugs so of course I'm freaking out. We all go home and immediately strip down. We all took showers, washed our clothes, vacuumed out the van, vacuumed the whole house and I'm still itching just thinking about it. Hopefully, we got rid of whatever it was.

After that fiasco, we had our small group bible study. On the way there, I noticed something stuck on the back of the drivers seat. We find toys and animals stuck in the weirdest places. My kids are crazy. After small group, we headed home and hit the sack. It was a long and busy weekend.



I hope everyone has a great week!

Sounds like you guys had a fun weekend though!!! Bugs! I hate them. The other day, we were playing in Jax's room, there was a scorpion crawling towards. I screamed and we jetted out. Jamie thankfully killed it. The exterminator came the next day. So yeah, I hate anything that crawls. Ha! I couldn't help but notice how cute you looked in your outfit and I of course couldn't help notice how precious your babies are!
