As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

This past week was a tough one. Everyone in the house had some stage of this nasty cold we've been passing around. My difficult children at school were especially difficult. And for the first time since before Christmas, we had to work a five day week! With the work days, then the snow days, then the MLK holiday, we had eased back into the five day work week.

The highlights
Charlotte experiments with a little color

Hannah had Super Dad's Day at school where all the dads came in for a special lunch and then took their kids with them for the day. The theme, Super Dads, was a play on the Super Bowl, and they were supposed to dress in their team colors. This also gave Daryl an excuse to put off his return to a five day work week until February.
(Sorry for the bad picture...darn auto focus!)

And last night, Family Night at the Stone household. For Christmas, Daryl got me a calendar with a date night pencilled in (and a gift card for each month) and a family night planned too. We took advantage of the gorgeous weather and grilled out, played a game of Guesstures, and then watched a movie together. Fun times. I wish I would have gotten out the camera sooner so I could have caught on film Daryl's rendition of belly dancing and Maranda's quarterback imitation, but I only managed to remember when it was Hannah's turn.
Here she is acting out the oh-so-exciting "freckle."

And jumping up and down after we guessed all of her words correctly!

It may be a blurry picture, but this is exactly how I felt on the inside having all my kids home and together last night. Definitely the best night of the month!
