Anybody Need a Kleenex?

Yes a bad bug hit us the beginning of last week.
 This bear above has been toted by this little man all week, comforting him whenever he needs it. I have been toting the little man around most of the time as well :)
And this little man is also requesting to be held by his mommy. His has not had a happy couple of days poor baby. We have been so glad that daddy took a couple of days off of work so he could help with the toting of the little ones. 
Around the middle of the week Honey Man and I both came down with the bad bug, I also broke my toe which shows that it has been kind of a rough week lol.
We got something in the mail that made us jump up and down with joy when it arrived the other day. It really cheered up our weary souls.
We invested in a Vita-Mix with our tax return and boy are we loving it. We have been cooking away with it. The motor gets so hot that it makes soups and serves them piping hot.
The night we got it in we put it to work immediately. 
We made a yummy cheddar potato soup.
 The fresh ingredients soothed our sore throats and boy oh boy was it delicious.
The next morning we blended up a nice strawberry and almond kefir smoothy.
And for dinner we made cream of celery soup. 
We are also able to grind wheat with this mixer which I am eager to try soon. Besides the weariness of being sick we have been able to cozy up as a family and enjoy each other in so many ways.
Wishing you all a glorious weekend!

1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.  
 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,  he leads me beside quiet waters,  
 3 he refreshes my soul.  He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.  
4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, 
for you are with me;  your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 
 6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, 
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
Psalms 23

Oh sweetie, you are so precious. And those babies are so precious, and Jon is so precious to come home and take care of you. Sorry you have all been so sick.

I'm so glad you got your vitamix. Those soups look wonderful.
Love all the pictures. Hope you're feeling better by tomorrow.
Love you,

You are amazing! You're sick, hobbling around, toting two sad little boys, and yet your post is warm and inviting! I count myself so blessed to be your friend!
I have never heard if a vita mix but now I want one! Those soups look scrumptious!
Your momma is right, you are precious!

Those sweet boys melt my heart into mush! Zane looks so pitiful and little Ezra is already looking so big!! I am sorry about you all being sick :( but oh does those soups sound delicious! Danielle said it perfectly, this post was so warm and inviting!

Love you guys!

I hope you all are already feeling better, dear Marie! I'm sorry you broke your toe along with everything else. That must be discouraging...

My family has owned a Vita Mix for about 7 years and we love it! I always ground all of our wheat with ours and we used it to make smoothies and milkshakes often during the summer. I would love to get one in the future for Stephen and my home. The potato cheddar soup you made looks scrumptious!

First of all - Yum! Secondly, surely next week will be better! And last - I really enjoyed rereading the verses - it is Lambing season here with the little lambs, so it takes a deeper meaning XOL
