Top of the mornin' to you! I have apparently come down with a nasty cold that kept me up coughing quite a bit last night (the Nyquil I took didn't work so well), so I'm creating this blog post from the comfort of my bed. I plan to go back to sleep shortly. It's okay though because old man winter is back with a vengeance today. It is blustery and cold outside! I see no need to go out in it. I'm hoping this is his one last hurrah and then spring will arrive.
Anyway, here's a glimpse into what life looked like around here last week ...
Keira watched her cousins, Jordan and Christi, on Sunday so my brother and sister-in-law could go out to dinner. The weather was gorgeous and the kids spent most of their time outside playing. I made a point of snapping a few pics of the girls while they were here. This is big sister, Jordan. I shared a picture of Christi here.
Alex earned a reward this week so off to the mall we went so he could get a pretzel from Auntie Anne's. It was hard sitting there watching him eat that yummy cinnamon sugar pretzel while I ate nothing. :)
My friend, Laura, hosted a girls' night on Friday where our friend, Sarah, taught us how to belly dance. It was so much fun! I think belly dancing would make a really great workout!
Alex worked on his "scrapbook" on Saturday. I finally convinced him to write something about each picture. If he sticks with this, I may get him his own mini Project Life album. Right now he's just using a photo album with 4x6 index cards.
So that's just a taste of what our week was like. Looking forward to seeing what you were up to last week. After my nap. :)
One last thing ... I randomly picked a winner for the JJ Heller LOVED CD this morning. Congratulations, Diana! I will get your CD sent out to you right away!
Okay, so just one more last thing ... there's still time to enter to win a copy of the book Home Run. But be sure to enter by Tuesday. Winner to be drawn on Wednesday, the first day of spring!
