long holiday weekend recap...


we had a fun and busy three day multi holiday weekend! on friday, the big kids had a half day of school. i picked them up and we met the prevettes at the park! we grabbed some lunch and had a fun afternoon. the weather was beautiful!!

jesiah had fun even though it doesn't show!


josh took a pic of chelsea and me wearing the babies, jaelyn and ashton!


my boys!


on saturday we surprised our kids with a visit from our good friends, the wilkerson's! they live near atlanta and came into town for a weekend visit. we spent a few hours with them. the kids were so surprised to see their kids! here is a photo of joshua and elijah. the boys are three days apart and best of buddies. i wish we would have taken more pictures. the day went too fast. we were able to see them again the next day. the came to elevation with us and we grabbed some lunch afterwards. we had a great visit!!!


jordyn is the only big girl in the group -
she played dress up while they did their boy stuff!



saturday was also jaelyn's first valentine's day!! here she is wearing some cute heart outfits!!





my sister along with some help from my parents watched the kids for us so we could go out for dinner! what a great valentine celebration!! thank you julie, mom and dad!!! we had a wonderful dinner at maggianos and did a little window shopping at south park mall! here we are before we left!



on sunday we did our elevation thing!!! jamil served in the morning at providence and butler! i headed back up to mcglohon to help with the ekidz volunteers! it was so fun!! i love to serve at a church as awesome as ours!!! we were planning to head back to church to the 6 pm service that night but i was feeling yucky from the cold my kids so lovingly shared with me, and we decided to pass. i will have to catch the sermon online tonight!

on monday with a day off of school and off of work for jamil, we planned to take the kids roller skating until we found out they were closed. instead we had an errand to run in pineville and took the kids to a huge indoor play place! here is a quick photo i snapped before we left!

we had a great family weekend despite the kids getting over the colds and me getting one! now i will start the week off feeling under the weather - no fun. hopefully it will be a quick one!!!
