Seven on Sunday ~ Week 8

Seven on Sunday is pretty sparse today...I think for Lent I need to work on taking more--and BETTER--pictures! HA!

Day 1: Sunday ~ Sometimes it really isn't my fault that I have no good pictures...look at what I have to work with! LOL!! Playing cards with these crazies on a Sunday night.

Day 2: Monday ~ The PE teacher at school sent me this picture from just last year...but Will and his friends look soooo little! They have grown up SO much this year!

Day 3: Tuesday ~ She wanted to do her own hair. So. This is it. I think she ended up putting another bow on the side too. #classy

Day 4: Wednesday ~ He forgot the "Z" on the end, but I really need this license plate!!

Day 5: Thursday ~ It was Will's first day of baseball practice and the closest I could get to a picture was Sarah wearing his hat. He's on the Blue Jays--AGAIN!

Day 6: Friday ~ One of the easiest, yummiest meals I've made in awhile. Recipe will be coming on SOON!!

Day 7: Saturday ~ His last basketball game!! For a kid who "didn't want to play" before we signed him up, he had a GREAT season and had so much fun! He had a melt down in the car afterwards--I am always shocked when he cries...he has these (kinda random) PASSIONS that he cares so much about. I guess basketball is one of them!

That's a wrap for today! Don't forget to check out my other website/blog for lots of fun recipes and information on healthy living! Have a great week! XOXO

Seven on Sunday ~ Weeks 6 & 7

Well last week we were having so much fun entertaining my sisters in law and my new little nephew that I couldn't post!! The last two weeks have been so much fun and the past week was "The Week of Benji." After having him around for 6 days, the kids were DEVASTATED when he left! We can't wait to see that little stinker again soon!!

Here are some pics from his visit:

These two became FAST besties!! Sarah is obsessed with babies to begin with and Ben was just another one of her "dolls"...that she dresses up in pink girl bibs :)

Friends for life!

We've had this Elmo chair since Brooke was 1! We cleaned it all up for Ben so he could get his turn in the family Elmo Chair :)

Aunt Casey had to Snapchat with him!!!

 He came to support Will at his basketball game! He loved it..I think basketball might be in his future.

These two! Seriously!

In between all the loving on Ben, Will had his first Confession with Father Jerome! SO proud of this kid-he takes his faith very seriously.

Enjoying the great weather outside!

 I taught him all he needs to know about the Napa Valley! Rombauer and Peju!

Brookey loves this kid so much!

A little wine tasting with the SIL!!!

This was Sarah in the car Tuesday after spending 4 days with Benji, then having to go to school Tuesday. She wouldn't stop crying!

Wednesday morning--saying goodbye to Ben...we let Sarah stay home and spend more time with him before he left.

Quality Time!!!

Will showed Ben all of his games and videos on his iPad--he was obsessed!!! LOL!!I think we have a future gamer here!!!

 After Ben and my sister in laws left, the house seemed to empty and quiet! No little baby cries and babbles! We were all super sad to see them go. If all works out, we are hoping to surprise the kids with a visit from him in a couple of month! I hope it works out!!!

I'll just leave you with this video of Sarah after Benji left....she LOVES that kid! And so do we!!!

Have a great week! XOXO
