It's Friday!


Highlights from this week included but were not limited to...


:: A full night's sleep--multiple times!  All happiness depends on a good night's sleep.  True story.

 :: Driving my new Acadia to town, giving it a car wash, and going shopping all afternoon.  My friend Amy and I spent waaay too much money at Target, but it was so much fun!

:: A family dance party in the den before bedtime

:: Making baby food for Levi.  I cooked a bunch of different vegetables, pureed them, and then froze them in heart-shaped silicone ice cube trays I found in the dollar corner at Target.  Nothing screams "made with lots of love!" like heart-shaped peas.

:: Teaching three violin lessons.

:: A little bird taking up residence in my dryer vent each night.  It must be cozy and warm in there.

:: Napping with Levi's little head on my chest.  I could hold him and listen to him breathe like that for eternity.  It is so relaxing!

:: Hearing Jed's bedroom door slam followed by quick footsteps around 7:15 each morning.  It's too bad that the seven o'clock hour is a completely acceptable time to wake up because I am missing sleeping in till after 8:00AM already!  (Waah, waah, waah!  I know.)  Oh well.  At least Jed is happy and cute and we get to have breakfast together, just the two of us.

We made a few extra lettered breadsticks for our neighbor friends because sometimes when you're feeling sick, a good meal without the cleanup is all you need!  Recipe found HERE.

:: Making alphabet letters in breadstick dough.  (I got the idea from a friend's blog.) Jed is finally taking an interest in learning things like colors and letters.  We made a "J" for Jed and two others.  I felt like a stellar mom!  Then after taking more than an hour to put dinner together, I remembered why I don't like to cook.  Short thirty minute meals are a young mom's best friend for a reason.

:: Holding Levi in the shower for more than twenty minutes and just letting the steam roll.  Poor kid has a very stuffy nose.  I held him close under the spray and Levi fell asleep on my shoulder.  I couldn't help kissing those sweet cheeks, admiring his fat tiny wrists, and stroking his bare little back.  It's moments like those that I just want to bottle up and save forever!  I sure wish he'd stop growing up so fast.     


I'd say we had a great week!  Here's to an even better weekend which should include a trip to east Idaho to see Kaleb wrestle in the Sugar-Salem Tourney, dinner with "the guys", and some good 'ol quality family time with the Nelsons.

  1. Yay for the weekend! Every night this week has felt like Friday. I'm so glad it's finally here!

    I love the breadsticks. Looks good! I'm totally with you about cooking dinner. I was making dinner last night, going all out. I got half way through and thought, why am I doing this? Multiple pots on the stove, rice cooker out, cutting boards spread out across the counter, and a fussing, crying baby wanting to eat. Silly me. Yes, quick 30 minute meals are the way to go! At least Kyle was impressed with the effort I put into dinner last night. :)
