We worked on homework
Practiced violin, cello & piano (the girls even talked me into teaching them to fiddle a liddle. David heard our wild violin/cello fiddling from the other room and hollered, What was all THAT about? Apparently the good Dr. doesn't know a hoe-down when he hears one.)
Ate soup and played games with friends
|Mexican Train Dominoes at the Johnson's|
|Kayla and I are quite a team. Be afraid. Be very afraid.|
Read good books and Caiden built a book-road (Do you have any idea how much I LOVE to hear my 4-year-old son beg to read books together?):
Drank lots of hot tea and cocoa with cream
- Mommy's signature "Indiana" cocoa (Karissa & Daddy & the whole family) It's super-yummy. And just for the record, "Indiana" hot chocolate is the favorite around here as opposed to Mexican hot chocolate (a more cinnamony blend which the kids are not fond of.) So they want cocoa from Indiana, not Mexico. Caiden coined the term "Indiana" Hot Chocolate.
- Blueberry Tea (Kayla)
- Black Cherry Tea (Caiden)
- Chocolate-Hazelnut Tea (Mommy)
|This time last year - having tea with my sis in Ireland|
The kids take their tea with sugar and cream. I like whatever weight watchers will let me have.

The layers and layers of ice were nice, but I was a bit sad that the 12-19 inches of snow didn't really seem to happen. BUT....the giant fluffy snowfall came days later. It was my favorite! I cannot tell you how giddy snow makes me. I just super-love it.
I sat in my favorite chair and looked out my favorite window and loved on my favorite kids and favorite husband. What's not to love?
I did real work too. I promise. Plenty of it. And the end of the week was a busy and sad one for our church.....But God is good. All the time. More on that later.
