While baseball has been at the forefront of our existence this past couple of months there have been many other things going on also. Little things you know, like adjusting to a precious nugget of a girl in the house and her sleep schedule...laundry...laundry...laundry...birthdays...more laundry...Mother's day...our 14th anniversary...finishing our first year of homeschooling...and did I mention laundry. Folks, the laundry, it neeevvveeerrrr ends. And let's not forget the ever present pop tart trails. LR has a serious pop tart addiction. I have a serious pop tart aversion. I'm gonna miss those pop tart trails one day. So, I just clean them up without a cross word (most of the time) and try to remind LR to stay at the table with food. She never does! She eats on the run.
My honey turned 35 this year and three days later we celebrated 14 years of wedded bliss. I.LOVE.MY HONEY! He is a good fella! We celebrated our anniversary by splitting duties and taking the boys to baseball. They both had a game at the same time, on opposite sides of town. Jamie ran in from work, kissed me, told me Happy Anniversary again, grabbed Cooper and LR and ran out the door again. I ran out the door with Amelia and Jay. We had chili dogs for our anniversary dinner, at 10:00. You know what? That's what it is all about...Family! We did go on a day date this past Saturday. We both had a really good time, not doing much of anything. We just were able to relax and talk. It was great.
The apple of our eyes
I'm a little fuss pot
short and stout
here are my lips
and here is my pout!
I had to laugh a little about that one. All of my kiddos are a hot mess for sure! I love it that way...most days!
In the midst of all of this chaos, I still miss Eli terribly. I wonder what it would be like with him thrown in the mix. It is so hard to imagine a toddler running around here to compliment my other sweetlings. (sigh)
Well that is all I've got for right now, so I'd better sign off and go and prop up the dryer door that is too tired to stay closed on its own! Yes, I am serious about that! The broom handle works quite nicely as a propping tool, I say!
