Good morning! I have nothing in the way of an introduction today, but I hope you have a great week!
There are blessings everywhere. Some days you have to sift through the "stuff" of life a little deeper and sometimes your arms are so heavy it feels like they can't dig, but keep looking...there are ALWAYS things to be thankful for and more blessings than you can count.
Start with the fact that you are breathing and have eyes and a mind that can read this and take it from there. :)
We left Ohio at 1 AM...Batman was my backseat road buddy for the 12-hour drive.
Our first sighting of s-n-o-w for the season. Boo!
This is Aiden's treasure box that he hauls all over the place. A rubber band gun that doubles as a pen, coins (real and play), a tape measure and an avocado pit.
Amy and I took the boys to see The Hungry Caterpillar ( or calapiter, as Amanda says). They look so big here!
First night of basketball practice for Avery. Though she's a lot like me, she seemed to favor her dad on the court...phew! :)
She scored a great coach and I told her so as we were walking out. When she asked why I said, because he's going to teach you a lot, work you hard and expect your best. (I wonder if she got picked by her last name, since he and Shaun have known each other on the basketball court for many years :).
Love to hear the stories Aiden tells me about his lego setups.
I believe they refer to this as bed head. :)
About a week ago Avery and Aiden were fooling around together and Aiden jumped up and hit the bottom of Avery's chin....hard enough to chip two of her (front, ADULT teeth). The dentist had a good report that the enamel is still intact and normal growth and wear and tear should even them out. And he didn't charge us for the three minute visit! Blessings!
Sweetest girls, matching for bed.
So Mom....this is where the weapons go, this is where the money goes, this is where the bad guys go... (no, our family is not part of the mafia :).
R and I set out early to go meet up with his biological brother, who he hadn't seen in three years. (They are full brothers...you can definitely tell that!) The visit went well and they hope to do it again soon.
BOY! I'll have a new nephew in April!! (My 10th, if I counted right. :)
SUCH a fun, happy event! We couldn't be happier for them!
