This weekend we went to our local farmers market and I bought kale to try. I made it tonight for dinner and we loved it! It was so good.....and very easy. All I did was melt butter in a pan on the stove, add onions and cooked until they softened, pulled the leaves off of the stem (I'm not even sure if this was necessary) and added it to the mix, and cooked until it was bright green and soft. I seasoned with some fresh lemon juice, sea salt, cracked pepper and trader joes 21 seasoning. Yum!!!
A few pics and a video from us eating dinner with the boys tonight. I love how they say all of their words right now...especially my name- so sweet. I figured I should get it on video so I can always remember it.
Friday was music appreciation day, where each grade had the opportunity to show their parents all they have learned in music this year. I am so so proud of how well all of the kids did!!! Here are some pictures and videos...(Thanks to Gigi for taking these!)
We had a great Easter weekend with my family!! Then we had a crazy, unexpected week in the hospital! But God is good and we are home now!! Here is a recap of our week:
My fam arrived on Friday night. On Saturday, we went to John's baseball game and to Grandmother's House to eat! Yum!
Here we are on Easter sunday...I was in the passion play, hence why I am not dressed up :).
We also had donuts from my new fav place!!
We enjoyed a wonderful Easter lunch at the Gossetts and played some fun games! Then we headed to the Parker's house for some capture the flag.
During one of the games, our good friend John Parker broke his arm :(. We ended up going to the Emergency Room with them. We really hope he feels better soon!!
My family left the next day, but Lori got to stay until Thursday! On Monday night, I sang the National Anthem at a banquet.
This is when John started to not feel so well. He went to bed with a fever, woke up the next day feeling ok, and went to work.
That day (Tuesday) he ended up passing out at work...and we ended up in the hospital until Friday. They ran all sorts of tests and concluded in the end it was some sort of viral infection. We are so so thankful that it was nothing more serious and we are home now! He continues to get better each day! Lori was the best sister and did anything she could to help, including watching these awesome dudes...
Here are some pics from the hospital...
Our friend Zach was working in the ER!
John had a pretty good bump on his head!
Lori went to Youth Group and the girls took care of her!!
