Oh Peas!

Micah has always reminded me of Ralphie's little brother Randy in a Christmas Story when she eats at the dinner table.

Mat's trip to Haiti Canceled

Mat's trip got canceled to Haiti due to riots and protests against their government.  Our church deemed it unsafe to send him there, so he got a whole week off.  What does one do with a whole week off?

Make a lamp of course.

Our contractor accidentally broke our other one, so here's to a sleeker design.

He also had the chance to ride his motorcycle.  Any chance. He got.



Rev and Seth put this little memorial cover on the bike as a tribute to his dad Dan



I ran around and did my usual stuff, groceries, car repairs, more groceries..... of course I took my little buddy and he found lots of BIG friends to play with.



Mat and I were able to have lunch towards the end of the week. Back to normal Monday!

Favorite Things

Here are some things I have been enjoying lately.

Creamy goodness sent from heaven.

Not only prepares your face for your next chemical peel, but it also tightens it up in between.  Must wear sunscreen with it (which I need to do better about)

A hip scent I aquired for my birthday a year ago.

And long lasting Loreal lipstick.  I put it on once a day and usually lasts until dinner.

Untitled

Not a favorite for Mat anyway would be bananas.  My kids take the liberty of being an advocate for the bananas.

And still a favorite! And always will be.

Winter and Resolutions

Winter is here.  I kind of liked Becket's perspective on his snowman.  He told me he wanted him to look up into the sky to watch for the sun to melt him.

I made a paper chain for our thirty day challenge.  Mat and I are trying to kick the habit of our sugar sweets, while the kids are trying to go without Nutella for 30 days (I also promised them we would make muddy buddies since we didn't make them over the holidays.)

Untitled

They were mad that I put, just for a day.



Becket and Gretchen are starting to learn the guitar.  I figure Mat could help them with any questions and they could jam together.

Untitled

They are also learning how to ski.  Their first ski lesson was last Saturday.  I was a little nervous when I saw the class didn't exceed the age of 6.  Becket was a little nervous too! The instructor informed me that they advance at their level, so they weren't going to be stuck on orange level forever.

After the ski process of the lift ticket, skis, instructors, we found ourselves outside getting some fresh air before the class started.
