Weekend Recap

This past weekend did my heart so much good! I have been so homesick, and haven't been home for Thanksgiving since 2008. This year we are spending it with my in-laws (which will be delightful) but I wanted to see my family nonetheless. So, Friday night Eric, Eli and I headed up to Lexington.

Saturday morning my mom, my sister, Mandi, Courtney and myself headed to Cincinnati to do a little Christmas shopping.





We left a little late then got caught up in traffic, so we ended up eating a fast lunch at IHop before hitting up the outlet malls. I almost completely finished shopping, and my sister did get all hers done.


We dediced to stop at Skyline Chili on our way home to enjoy the Cincinnati icon. It was actually my first time eating there, and I greatly enjoyed it!



After dinner we still had about an hour before all the stores closed, so we hit up Toys R Us and Old Navy...score!! We ended up rolling back into town around 11:00. Here we are with some of our packages.

Eli had a rough night Saturday into Sunday, but luckily my mom relieved us around 6 am and let us sleep in. Then Sarah came over to visit just in time to feed Eli breakfast.


We ate lunch at Firehouse Subs which has the most awesome drink machine ever. Eli was quite fond of the hats they give out!


Before leaving, Eli spent some time with my family playing cars and ball.


It was such a big trip for him that he fell asleep before we made it to the end of the road. I know this will be the scene when we leave Eric's family this coming weekend. My boy is so blessed!

It was so nice spending some much need quality time with my momma and sister. I miss them and our little outings so, so much!



We actually had another eventful night when we got home. We decided to eat spaghetti and play a few minutes before bath time. Afterwards we all laid down to watch Home Alone as a family. Eli was a little fidgety, so we turned off the movie and went to sleep.


Around 2:00 am he woke up puking. Poor guy. Eric, who also was feeling the effects of a tummy bug, cleaned up the mess while I ran to town to buy Sprite. Yes, I wore matching flannel jammies to the gas station in the middle of the night. I'm sure I got a few looks, but I don't care. My baby needed me.


My sweet hubby stayed up watching "Monster vs. Aliens" with our sick boy so that I could get a little sleep. So far, I'm the only one to escape this nasty bug...here's to victory!!
