Cold Happens - Week of Nov. 16th

“The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house. All that cold, cold, wet day.” 
Dr. SeussThe Cat in the Hat 

Every fall, heading into winter it's almost inevitable that Cam will be the unfortunate recipient of a cold or virus.  And this mid-November was no exception.
Jane flew out of state on Sunday for work while Cam tried to fight off sickness back in Michigan.
It was a long week for Jane's boys with restless, sleeping nights and a day off of school.
On Thursday evening, Cam had his bath early and dressed in pajamas, ready to pick up his mom at the airport right at 8pm.  Jane was so excited to see her family, and quite relieved her flight was on time!

We shared a "Pass the Pasta" dinner with lifelong friends/neighbors and each family offered up a favorite Italian dish.  We dined on Tuscan Chicken, Bowtie Alfredo, and Pistachio Pasta along with salad, bread and fruit.  Everything was so delicious and the kids played games afterwards.

The remainder of the weekend was spent creating crafts with Emma and resting on the couch, with Stella keeping a watchful eye.

The weekend also brought our first official snowfall!  This was the best kind of winter weather- the sun shone to capture the glimmer of white crystals and the roads remained clear.    
Cam-ology Quotes:
"I love you so much, Mom!  I love you even when you are away."

(Mom) What was it that we wanted to look for at the store?
Nutella pop-tarts!
(Mom) You're right!  I'm so glad you remembered.
I had it in my mind, Mom!
