Evidently making blue berry muffins is serious work! :)
While I reinstalled the car seats, the kids played "drive the van". Jacob's not a big fan of the horn!
I can't believe they're actually letting me play with this thing that has such BIG wheels!!!
He's decided to start "cruising" again! Yippeee! And now he'll even walk on the wood floors. I really hope he starts walking on his own VERY SOON!
This is an early birthday present for me :) This cabinet was returned or something, so Aaron got it very cheap. It's my new scrapbooking cabinet!!! The drawers are really long and there's quite a bit of space between the drawers, so I can fit a LOT in there. And actually, the top of it is big enough that I could scrapbook on there (at least put my pages together--there's not enough room to have everything out on there). One of these days I WILL have a craft room for my scrapbooking and sewing machine! And when that day comes, I'll have a great cabinet for the room :)
We also had Bruce and Shirley visit this weekend for a big party (Ben got engaged!!). Aaron got the genius idea to go to the football game IN OKLAHOMA...after a night of precious little sleep. I think that's why I agreed to go--b/c I was so sleep deprived. We skipped out on the pumpkin patch b/c I knew the kids would have melt downs half way thru things. I figured since we had a 3 hr. drive down to the game, they would probably sleep most of the way. Oh no. Jacob slept for maybe an hour total. Anna didn't sleep at all. They were pretty good. But then we got to the game and it was HOT and WINDY and the sun was BLAZING. I was not prepared for that weather! And of course, there was NO shade for most of the game. 2nd half there was a teeny bit of shade, so we claimed it. I had to run to the store and get sunscreen (a rip off b/c the only store I could find was a gas station). Naturally by the time I got back, the kids were both asleep and didn't need it!! And to top it all off, we lost big time :( But it was fun riding with the Swiharts! :) We even managed to keep the kids awake all the way home (Anyone want to sing Zaccheus or hot dogs?!?)!
I also found out why Anna hasn't been sleeping at night-she's got tonsillitis, probably strep! She NEVER complained about her throat hurting, so I had no idea. But they both had nasty coughs that just weren't going away. Jacob's throat was okay, but I have no doubt that he'll end up with it too. At least the medicine tastes good for it! So we're laying low and Mama is trying to function on this little sleep :(
PS-Thanks Jenn for posting that song. I have more to post about that Bible study, but that will have to wait for later when the kids are in bed and I don't get interrupted a million times :)
