Weekend Recap!

I was finally able to relax and sort of get my mind off things.  On Friday night, Wes and I just picked up to-go food from Mig's and stayed home.  Wes went to sleep extra early, like 8:30, so I stayed up and learned how to skype with my sister! One of my best friends and her hubby, Alix and Scott, live in Austin TX so they drove to Houston to visit my sister in the hospital.  So I got to see their faces too!

Saturday, we went over to Wes's parents house to play with our nephew. Wes and Wyatt worked hard planting some sunflowers...look how cute :)

Worn out!

That afternoon I went to see this movie.....
 It was so good and so much like the book!! I cant wait to own it one day!

Later that night Sarah came over to decorate Easter eggs and Wes went to the grocery store to buy more cokes.  He came back with his coke but also with 2 bottles of wine and some champagne for him haha.  I had a couple glasses of MUCH needed wine and we had a great time!  Wes has been SO VERY wonderful to me since we found out about my sister.  I mean he is always great, but extra special this week.  I am so thankful to have him! :)

On Sunday, we went to church with Wes's family and back to have dinner and a easter egg hunt with Wyatt!  I went to pick up my Mema so she could skype with Jodi and it was awesome. It was another wonderful day.
Here is a picture of my awesome sister and parents at the church in her hospital in their "Easter bests".
Can we pretend I am in the picture too??
I know that Jodi is in the number one hospital in the country to beat AML (MD Anderson, Houston TX) but please say many prayers for her to beat this and for her treatments to be "easy" for her!  I know she will be just fine and I cant wait for her to temporarily move back to Greenwood! :)  If you would like to keep up with more details from her, please check out her Caringbridge site. 


  1. stopping by from mingle monday!

    I am loving your blog-thinking of your sister & your family! AML is pretty tough but she's got her age & a great a support system on her side so I have no doubt you all will make it through chemo!

  2. Hello from Mingle Monday, you have a great blog and it looks like you have a wonderful weekend despite of the recent news about your sister (now in my daily prayers for her speedy recovery).
    I am dying to see that Movie (Water for Elephants) and I think I might go today! Have a great day.

  3. Look at me commenting on your blog!! I can't wait to see that movie....Did you go by yourself? If you did, I am proud. You know I love a good movie alone! :) Glad your weekend was relaxing, can't wait to see you tomorrow!

  7. Hey sweetie you and your family have been on my mind so much. With such a wonderfully loving family and network of friends on top of the fact that she is getting top notch medical care... she's going to do great! I can't wait to meet her... I envision a celebratory tail gate! : )
