Today I am sick in bed. I’m trying to see the silver lining in being limited to bed and close distance to the bathroom. I guess I will get a head start on that baby weight before the holidays. I can hear chaos downstairs as Mark tries to manage the laundry, kids, and meals. Thanks Babe! Anyway, I hope this post is coming to you as you are preparing for the holidays (in a peaceful and happy state). Here’s our week. . .
Brooks made a snowy mountain scene that he saw in a book. His creations always surprise me.
Brooks and Silas made friends with a catapillar they named “Gabriel.”
I was so excited to take a picture of this pie. It means I am trying butter again. Unfortunately, 4 hours later I was sick and now I don’t care to ever see a pecan pie again.
My lunch the next day – tea, water, gatorade, applesauce and crackers.
Pants are optional in our house.
We decided to not do a Christmas Tree this year since we are traveling, but then I realized how disappointed Brooks is going to be (he LOVES Christmas) when he hears there will be no Christmas Tree. So we got down the fake one we bought our first year of marriage and decorated it with our favorite ornaments.
Can you tell what this is? Its the nativity.
An afternoon with Silas.
I asked Silas to get some toys and play with Jonas. He got ALL the toys.
Brooks tried to get Jonas dressed. After 10 minutes, Jonas was laughing and Brooks was mad.
We let the kids stay up late to watch Peter Pan.
We are into space travel and fighting fires again.
Experiencing pop rocks for the first time.
This was a massive sweet potato. It made enough fries for all of us.
Poor Jonas. He can never escape his brothers.
Mark found Silas one morning under the table with snack bars and a knife. At least, he intended to share with his brother.
Beet hands. We got a load of them in our co-op box this week.
Jonas eating his greens.
Tree lighting. See you next week!
