A Peek into Our Week: The flu, Scrabble games, our 10-year wedding anniversary, and a trip to Little Rock

Our week began with the flu… and by the middle of the week, four out of five of us had had it, were getting it, or were recovering from it. I was sicker than I’ve remembered being for a very long time… it took me five days of being bedridden before I finally felt well enough to be up and around again!

And that was the case for all of us who got it. Gratefully, though, we’re all almost completely well again!

Kathrynne enjoyed playing with her new marble maze that was a Christmas gift from her aunt and uncle before she finally succumbed to the flu.

When Silas and Kaitlynn were well enough to be up, we used our new Yonanas machine (a Christmas gift from my aunt and uncle!) to make banana “ice cream.”


We enjoyed a few fast and furious Scrabble games this week while we were recovering. We discovered that it’s a great way for Kathrynne to improve her spelling skills, too!

Jesse and I also celebrated our 10 year anniversary this week. I am so thankful for this wonderful man that God has given me. We’ve had our ups and down and our hard times, but we’ve grown together so much through it all.

Yesterday, Jesse and I made a quick trip to Little Rock to celebrate our anniversary and have some business meetings with a few people here. It’s been fun to get away together and just enjoy some quiet and time to talk and dream about the next 10 years of our marriage.

So that was our week in a nutshell. What was your week like? Tell us in the comments.

    Sorry ya’ll have had the ‘bug’. So far we have escaped. THANK THE LORD!!!

    Congratulations on 10! We are right behind ya. 9 years in May. We plan and save all year and then go on a “honeymoon” every year. Usually just a couple of days, but so important! The kiddos love to stay with grandparents and look forward to it all year long.

    Thanks for the game ideas, everyone. I never thought of that. Hmmm….I need to go game shopping. :)

    We got a yonanas machine also, but not huge banana fans. Love using frozen peaches & berries in it!! :)
