~A Peek into Our Week~

Here is my little fella, Justin at the doctor's office last Thursday.  We tried to send him to school Thursday morning, but he did not do well, so they sent him home.  I went ahead and took him to the doctor, because he had been sick for so long.  I wanted to make sure it was not more than just the flu.  I'm glad I did.  They tested him for Mono, and it was positive.  He was so brave when they took his blood.  They also did a chest x-ray to make sure that looked okay, and thank the Lord,  it did.  He was not allowed to go back to school until today.  He will not be able to do any physical activity for a month because the spleen gets enlarged a lot of times with Mono, and it can cause it to bleed if they get hit in the stomach or do too much physical activity.  He was out of bed all day yesterday, so I felt a peace in my heart that he will do well in school today.  
Here is Lauren cheering at a Pep Rally at her school on Thursday afternoon.  It was really neat to watch.
Steven and I were out and about on Saturday morning.  We had to stop by a tiny little Mexican grocery store to get Megan her favorite candy, and I got a cold Coke in a bottle!
I have been burning my Yankee Merry Berry Linzer candle at my desk this week.  It came out for Christmas, but it seems to be a good choice for around Valentines because the picture has Linzer cookies with little cut out hearts on them.
In my little kitchen, I've been burning my Yankee Candle in the scent of Cafe Al Fesco.  It is a really nice scent.  Kind of a vanilla coffee scent.  
I organized my little magnet collection on the side of my refrigerator.  I think they look cute!  I've loved magnets since I was a little girl.  My aunt TD always had really cute ones on her refrigerator, and I just thought they were so neat.  I'm so glad I have such good childhood memories.  I don't get to see a lot of my aunts and uncles very much anymore, but they remain in my heart.
Here is my little Peanuts calendar.  I think my love of them also stems from my childhood memories.  Good childhood memories are a gift that will last a lifetime.  I strive to try to give my own children good childhood memories.  They will stay in your heart far after the moments have passed.

Yesterday was a slow day for my son at work, so he offered to take Lauren and I around to tour the education department for the space camps.  It was really neat.  I am so blessed to have all four of my children.  Each one of them owns my heart.  I am so proud of the responsible young man my son has grown into.  

Here are a few more photos from our little tour yesterday.  Very neat stuff!
I didn't have to cook yesterday, because of the Super Bowl.  We got Pizza and Hot Wings for dinner!  It was yummy!
My husband, Steven enjoyed watching the Super Bowl.  The children and I really didn't watch it too much.  It's just not really our cup of tea.  I think it's safe to say that Steven is truly the only sports fan in our family.  The children do like to play sports, but not really watch other's do so.

The girls and I went for a little drive to the park.  We watched the little geese and enjoyed the warm day.  Today is the first day I am with out my little fella in over a week.  I hope to get my house deep cleaned today, and run a few errands.  I hope everyone has a good week.  Hugs.  Juli


  1. Dear Juli ... It is so good that you took Justin to the doctor. I pray that he will get through all of this without any problems. Your home must smell wonderful with all of your lovely candles. Your tour looks very nice and even more so because of the special tour guide that you had. Bill enjoyed the Super Bowl and I not so much. I had a little computer time as he was watching the game. We both enjoyed Super Bowl Food. I hope that you have a good week. Hugs ♥ Teri

  2. Prayers for you son, my friend...
    And I am loving your Yankee Candles!
    We had wings for the Super Bowl too!
    Steve made little party sandwiches, and I made some cheese broccoli soup...
    Have a cozy week. : )

  3. Will keep your son in prayers to get well soon. You have many beautiful things. I got attracted by the candle.
