home again

Ah! to be home after a quick overnight trip, it feels so gooooood!
Thank you to mom for feeding the pets that couldn't come.
Poor lou and roz.
The boys had fun swiming with Jer (too cold for me & Carli came down with a runny nose). They had some kids activities where we were staying and the boys painted some small canvas bags. A- did a star wars scene and B- did a camo monster truck. Most of our time was spent on the basketball court with all types of balls of all sizes. Even Carli crawled all over that court.
such a fun quick trip

Today is much better than yesterday!

So I made sugar cookies with frosting (like the lofthouse kind) today! Do you think they are better for you if make them with fresh ground whole wheat flour and organic sugar? hum... i bet with the frosting they are just as bad. Oh well, they are still yummy, and I had that craving and after dealing with sick kiddos for two weekends and counting, I SO DESERVE THEM!

And I just have to brag that I have such a rockin' visiting teacher (and great friend). I think she had an inspiration to call me yesterday to chat and I totally opened up and was way too emotional but she had some great words of wisdom and it really helped and I needed to hear what she had to say. Then today she brought over a lovely flowers and a sweet note!

Just evidence of the Lords tender mercies.

Poor, Poor Avery, worked so hard on his valentines and early this valentines morning got sick and now he can't to to school. What a bummer! Cute idea though. He found it on the computer and we worked together to make them. The body of the ipod is a pack of gum. He was so excited about handing them out.
