On Tuesday Millie got into the middle of a scuffle with Ella and Lyla and got this nasty cut. We took her into the vet and she got staples and meds. She is settling into the ultra spoiled life quite well.

Copy Cat loves to sleep up on Aaron work bench. So Aaron threw a old receiving blanket up there. Aaron was sitting working on the grinder thingy and Copy was just as happy as a clam!

“Please just let me sleep!”

We are just about ready for VERY busy week….Aaron is being trained to burn and mail our churches CD’s DVD’s etc. He also has a board-meeting, is still on call his regular times and we have swimming lessons as well as school for the kids (who have colds). Then this Sunday is Pentecost! So, have a good week…and I’ll see you on the other side for a weekly picture post!

My Mother’s Day

The day is wrapping up, the kids are in bed and I have a few little things to finish before cuddling up with my man in bed and watching our new favorite show Numb3er. My day was amazing. I am so very blessed to have a man like my husband and such sweet kidos in my life. I am also so very blessed to have my mom as such a wonderful example and friend. I am also very blessed to have a wonderful mother-in-love. Boy have I got it good! 🙂 I hope and pray all you mama’s out there ,and all those praying to be a mama some day had a wonderful day!

Here are some pics from today.

Wednesday was warm and after swimming lessons (where we met grandma) we headed up to town and spent some at at the beach. The water is still quite cold, but the kids (big and little) had fun for a couple of hours. 🙂

On Friday we met Grandma in town for the kids yearly pictures, then they went with her while Aaron and I went on an over night date. We started with grabing lunch, then went up to Arbor crest for a wine tasting.

IMG_3257

I got a groupon for wine tasting for two and two bottles of wine. It was fun, and informative.

The view was lovely.

After the wine tasting we went to the mall and watched Iron Man 3 and window shopped. 🙂 Then we checked into our hotel and had dinner and stopped at this coffee shop for dessert.

The two story indoor courtyard looking out from our room. While the hotel was lovely and had a neat history, the staff made mistake after mistake. All in all… We had a nice time, it was good to just be us.

Thursday we made new copy work books and Flora was SO happy she got to make one as well. Here is her first page of writing a verse. She was in tears (happy ones) when she was done! 🙂

Clara’s tennis shoes fell apart (as in bottom of shoe came off the upper body) and so the hunt began for black and white TIEING shoes! We found what she wanted at the first store.
