I almost titled this post "chocolate, snow, and puke", but . . . . I didn't think the word "puke" in 24pt font at the top of my blog would be all that attractive to readers.
Just some random, un-blogged items from February . . .
One day last week we had the most beautiful surprise snow shower with the biggest snowflakes I have ever seen. This photo doesn't even do it justice.
Anna and I got frozen yogurt at the mall. I love love love these places . . . self-serve yogurt, self-serve toppings, weight it, and pay. I am more than happy to introduce anyone to the joys of frozen yogurt or be your facilitator in satisfying a craving. Anytime. Call me.
Luckily I had my little camera in my purse to capture these 3 sweet bunnies at story- (and craft) time at the library. My fluffy bunny is in the middle.
We had a few sick days in our house this past weekend. 4 for Payton. 2 for Conner. I am so proud of Conner for making it to the toilet both times. Payton . . . eh, let's just say I washed his sheets twice and some family room pillows once. We had a pretty lazy weekend with all this going on . . . I donned yoga pants and sat around with my laptop working on blog books via Blurb and the kids watched lots of Redbox movies. It was actually a very welcome change of pace.
This is how I eat a box of chocolates. A little nibble here and there. That way I know what I'm getting myself into later. I finished off the See's box of chocolates from my dad, and made it half-way through the Whitman's box from Scott before I had to call it. Official chocolate overload.
Scott and I had our February date. Can I just say that our schedule is tight? Yikes. Weekends are spoken for in a big way . . . between school and youth activities. Thankfully, this was an at-home date so we were able to squeeze it in on a Monday night. Details later. But it involved some of this yumminess.
Payton is officially a Cub Scout! He looks so cute in his uniform. Last night at Pack Meeting (the Blue & Gold Banquet) he received his Bobcat award and he pinned me with the mother's pin. :) I love seeing the excitement, enthusiasm, and eagerness that comes with brand new Cub Scouts.
In other, un-photographed, news . . .
We got a new van! Yay! I've only driven it once though. Didn't want to bring any pukey kids into the car or venture out in the snowy weather we've been having lately. Next week you'll see me cruisin' around town in my new wheels.
I'm getting glasses. Actually, I'm heading out to pick them up right after I finish this post. They sure are cute. I just hope they will really help me see. My eyes have been going cuckoo the past few months. It's been hard(er) to focus on distances, and just recently it's become difficult to focus when I read as well. Ugh.
It snowed (lots) today. And then it melted. But I have pictures and video to share later from our very happy snow day.
