The munchkins spent some time with my parents this weekend.  It was unbelievable quiet here.  We got some extra work done around the house, I went shopping all by myself, and we went out to eat.  And we missed the kids too.

Justin was out running in the neighborhood when they got back.  Last night as we were driving to small group Kate pointed to a place on the sidewalk and said, "That's where we saw Daddy running!  And when he saw us his eyes lit up because he was so happy to see us!"

I'm so glad she knows that she is loved an cherished.

Friday Funnies

Nate: I'm gonna shoot the sharks until they are dead.

Me: Sharks?

Nate: Yeah.  They crunch people.

Nate: The smoke factory beeped.

Me: It's a smoke detector.

Nate: Nope.  Smoke factory.  And the fire fighters come.

This one isn't so funny as sweet, but I wanted to remember it...

As I was scrubbing the floor after Gabby had been ill, she came in, "Oh Mama, you don't have to clean that.  I will get it."

Valentine's Day

I told Justin not to buy me flowers and chocolates.  It is a silly expense, after all.  I planned to do some cooking though--a gooey chocolate cake and Cincinnati style chili (one of his favorites).  Not this year though.

Miss Gabby caught a stomach bug and she just can't seem to kick it.  It started Tuesday morning and I was sure it would be short lived, as she went back to sleep quickly and she didn't wake us again (though Kate did).  She's continued to be sick a handful of times, all spaced out, but it is still keeping the girlie down.  It bothered Kate a little, but not nearly so much--she was only sick once, though she told me it was bothering her too much for school, though she was fine to eat breakfast.

I guess we'll celebrate Valentine's Day a little late around here.

Friday Funny

I just love candy.  I like fruits and veggies.  They are great and all, but candy... It's so...  yummy!  We don't get it often, so I just gobble it all up!  -Kate
