Good Monday morning to you! I hope your weekend was everything you wanted it to be. We had a quiet and uneventful one here, except for a few hours Sunday evening when the high winds caused a power outage in our area. And just as Danielle and I were going to watch the Oscars together too. Instead, Steve, Peyton, Flynn, Rhett and I spent the evening Little House on the Prarie style, huddled in the living room surrounded by (battery operated) candles. Our power returned, but not in time to watch Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga sing possibly the most beautiful song ever recorded live. If you haven't seen it yet, you can find it over on YouTube.
This week is a quiet one here. Madison and Nicolas are off enjoying their honeymoon, and Nicolas' brother Jakob, who is staying with us for a while is spending a few days in Canada with his friend, Mads, who is also staying with us. We are so happy to have these two amazingly nice young men here with us. It is so nice for Nicolas of course, but also for all of us as we enjoy spending time with them. They are so well mannered and polite, but also lots of fun. Rhett is enjoying having "brothers" for a while, and Peyton is enjoying having more people to cook and bake for! Flynn has more people to play ping pong and watch soccer with and has even found someone new to help practice her spelling words.
This week will be quiet, but we will fill it with work, school, laundry, cooking, napping, reading, and watching our favorite shows. Have a great week yourselves, and be sure to take time for some afternoon coffee. I am still finding photos on my phone. Here are some of my favorites...
