Staycation Day 5 - The Mutha of All Tents

Imagine Bryan's surprise when he got home from work and found the living room covered in blankets and fabric. We decided to build a tent from the top of the 8 ft. entertainment center down. All Bryan could say was, "Wow, you had a very productive day, huh?" Our tent was so fancy it had the flat panel TV incorporated in the design.

Our staycation was very nice. I wish every week was like this one. Spending time with the boys is awesome and I love every bit of it. Last night Jackson let me rock and sing him to sleep. I haven't been able to do that in years and I don't think he realized how much that meant to me. I was able to tell him different times in his first year that I sang different songs to him. From singing Great is Thy Faithfulness after immunizations, to Sweet Baby James and St. Jude's Comet when he was 6 weeks old to Lida Rose every day of his first year, I was able to relive those songs again. It was great because after I finished one he would ask me for another. Finally he didn't ask anymore and I realized it was because he was asleep. Sweet Jackson fell asleep to my singing instead of Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber, thank God for the little things!
