A Week in the Life {2/11-2/17}

What a fun week we had!

We had Turney visitors all week, we started off the week with Nana Turney who had an extended stay (the rest of the Turney's went home on Monday but Nana stayed until Thursday. Nana was generous enough to invite Hannah and Paige for a sleepover at her hotel on Tuesday night. The girls had a blast! They got to take walks around the hotel, take a bath in a giant Jacuzzi, and sleep in a giant bed. Paige has such a funny sense of humor! Kris kept trying to get her to say "Nana" but she would only say "Papa." Paige knows that Nana and Papa come in a "set," so she was just trying to complete it. Whenever Kris would press "say Nana," Paige would say "Papa" and burst up laughing because she knew she was being tricky. The girls did great spending a night away from home.

Meanwhile, Adam and I got to go out on a date! We went to eat at Raising Canes (which was pretty good) and then did sealings at the temple. It was great to have a night all to ourselves, to get to bed early, and to wake up on our own terms. I felt so relaxed by the time I got the girls the next morning at 10am.

More visitors joined us on Wednesday night! Addison and Amanda came out for a visit to do the Color Run with us as a family. Guess what that meant...another date night! Adam and I went out on Thursday to The Olive Garden. I ate 1,600 calories just in dinner alone. That's over my daily caloric intake goal. It was heavenly.

Hannah and Paige loved to be with their aunt and uncle. Amanda said that Hannah was a perfect angel which is always a huge relief to hear. Hannah has been really obedient as of late and is always super helpful. Paige was great as well. She is such a sweetheart, always saying "please" and "thank you." In fact, I went to Sams Club on Monday and every time the cashier put food in our cart Paige would exclaim "Thank you!" Super sweet.

Friday was fun because we got to go to Valentines party for preschool. Brandee hosted at her house and she did a fantastic job! The kids decorated cupcakes, exchanged Valentines, and played games. Addison and Amanda took off for his birthday celebration, then we joined them for dinner at Rain Forest Cafe. Both girls had a blast eating dinner in a rain forest, loved the thunderstorms, and got a kick out of watching all the animals. It put quite a dent in our bank account, but it was worth it.

Saturday was the Color Run. Last year I did the Color Run with my friend Haley, her mom, and some of her friends. It was the greatest, but I felt like my family really missed out! This year, I wanted to cross the finish line as a family. It was incredible, and I want to do a separate post on it. After the run (it took us 45 minutes) we came home and did laundry, took naps, and had dinner together as a family while A&A went to a time share presentation and to see the Blue Man Group. Adam and I watched Skyfall (which is what I got him for Valentines day). I loved it (and so did he).

Today we woke up and all had breakfast together. We'll attend church, then have a family dinner and say goodbye to Addison and Amanda. We are looking forward to Adam's day off tomorrow!
