We are very lucky. Very.
All of the lights at our house kept flickering on and off late Thursday night. We would lose all of the power and then it would turn back on. Andrew called one of his friends that is an electrician and he came over to check things out. He told us to immediately call the power company and they came and checked things out. The power company told us after looking at things, ‘this is how people’s houses burn down’…. the wires were all sparking and crazy! I guess the main power lines coming into our house had melted and things were obviously not safe. They shut all of our power off except for our furnace (somehow the power line to that part of the house was okay… lucky). Then the next morning they would get things fixed. So on Friday morning they shut off the furnace too to get working on things. We are so lucky that we were able to get it fixed before anything awful happened!
So the first part of our morning started at home. We dressed nice and warm and snuggled with the baby and once it started getting a little cold inside (it was like 20 degrees outside so things were cooling down fast)…
We drove over to my parents’ house to hang out until our house was fixed. Andrew stayed at our house to make sure everything was okay. Brooke and I had matching hair which was fun and you can see below that she loves talking to Skye at all times but especially in the car.
My parents have a little bit more snow than we do! It’s supposed to snow here today and tomorrow so we might have a white Christmas!
Brooke gets very excited to show off Skye to people!
I took a shower (thank you parents for the warm water and power to blow-dry my hair) and then just hung out in the back room while Brooke played with cousins. I’ve tried to keep Skye pretty quarantined so far and this was the best that we could do for what was going on yesterday.
She also had a doctor’s appointment and gained another 4 ounces in the last week. Everything is looking good with her! She has a tiny bit of jaundice but the doctor isn’t worried at all and says it will just continue to work itself out of her system! She was thrilled to be taken out of her warm comfy clothes and put on a scale.
We were all starving after the appointment so we went straight to the Chic-Fil-A drive-thru for some good stuff. This was another place I did not like while I was pregnant and I am happy to report it is delicious again. If you are a diet coke lover like Andrew, try asking for part lemonade and part diet coke. Andrew loves this combination!
I stuck to their lemonade, a chicken sandwich and their heavenly waffle fries!
Mer (my grandma) knows the way to my heart and gave us these as part of our Christmas present! Nothing better than See’s chocolate.
Once it got dark we grabbed some hot chocolates and drove around looking at Christmas lights!
Everything was fixed by the time we got home. That whole incident made me so grateful for power and for heat (and that we caught the problem in time)!
Oh how I love leftovers!
Beretta got back at Andrew after he didn’t take her with him on his run yesterday.
This baby sure has a rough life;) Snuggling, eating, sleeping, repeat.
Who is doing a long run today? How far? With people or no?
Trying to figure out a Christmas Eve/Christmas dinner menu… what are you having?! I’ll probably copy you!
Will you have a white Christmas where you are at?
Anything fun going on today?
