Hope you all had a fun week. I loved seeing everyone’s dress up pictures from Halloween. We were invited to a family Halloween party at some friends’ house, so a few weeks ago I started trying to find a costume for Valentine. I didn’t feel up to the task of making anything, so I started looking at Amazon for costumes. That’s when I found this Princess Leia costume and immediately showed it to Logan. We both laughed and talked about how fun it would be to get it for Valentine, but it was about a bazillion-jillion dollars so of course we didn’t. But that weekend I went to a consignment sale and found the exact same costume in Valentine’s size!!! It was fate :) She wore the costume so proudly and even kept the hat on *almost* all the time. I thought Logan would burst with happiness.
Last weekend we had such a relaxing, happy time with family. My mom brought Christmas lights to the cabin in Branson, which she strung from the banisters and the mantle and made it feel so warm and festive. Valentine got lots of amazing presents including a little wooden bike and kazoo. Logan got a pile of cash (literally…my parents wadded up a bunch of dollar bills so that it filled a bag!) and I got the ESV Study Bible, this book, and a recipe journal. Aside from opening presents, we spent all our time playing King of Tokyo and eating toffee. It was wonderful.
As for the rest of the week, I got sick and spent most of the time alternating between shivering uncontrollably and sweating profusely. It was not a pretty picture. Despite being exceptionally busy, Logan took such good care of me, and my sister babysat Valentine one afternoon so that I could lay on the couch and watch New Girl in my misery. But I’m feeling much better now. Hallelujah.
How was your week? Do you like Halloween? Aren’t the trees magnificent right now? I keep wondering if autumn is always this beautiful???
