Monday, Monday

(mmm mmmm, mmm mmmm...) So now that I have you all humming the Mamas and Papas, I guess I'll get to the real post!

Life continues to be a bit crazy here. Our little boy was running a fever, plus started complaining that his eye was "sticky" (yes, the beginnings of pink eye, but thankfully we already had medicine in the house :) So while we had our little family party on Friday (complete with strawberry shortcake and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), the gathering we had planned for Sunday has been postponed. I stayed home with the kiddos yesterday (hubby had to be at church to help with technical stuff for the Answers in Genesis conference), and we baked chocolate cake. No cupcakes - D specifically requested a BIG cake. With orange sprinkles (like Tony). So while we didn't have the actual party, we still had the party cake! (Although I should mention that for the jungle themed party the sprinkles will be masked off to make tiger stripes!)

I did head out on Saturday morning to the biannual consignment sale. The kids are now all set for the summer, plus I picked up some games. Operation Brain Surgery gets a thumbs up! I also did a quick grocery store run yesterday afternoon, and was quizzed by the lady in front of me as to how exactly I was going to use the 3 packages of tortillas I was purchasing. Kind of a strange conversation. (And for the record, we are big fans of quesadillas, enchiladas, and wraps. They're a great way to recycle leftovers!)

It's going to be a busy week - hubby will be at church tonight for the end of the conference, then has a meeting tomorrow night. Will be in NY on Wed and not back until late Thursday. And he flies out ridiculously early on Saturday for China. I have a number of things planned, too (including MOPS, dentist, kindergarten registration, and play dates) so I'm praying that we can all stay healthy. The past few days were quite nice weather-wise (and yes, the flowers I posted last week are actually from our yard) but today is rather cold and dreary, so it's a good day to stay inside and hopefully get some things crossed off the "to do" list.

One last funny story - I think our little boy is about to do some growing again as he's been ravenous lately. This morning after breakfast (2 pieces of toast, an apple and a piece of cheese) he asked if he could have chocolate cake. Um, don't think so! His follow up request? Leftover mixed veggies from last night's dinner. Yes, he was allowed a little bowl of those :) Have I mentioned that we have some wacky kids?!

Jarrett will aften ask for veggies for breakfast - what am I going to say?, "No, eat you coco Puffs!" I don't think so!

Only 3 packages of tortillas!? I usually buy 6-8 packages and they always have a funny look but no one has ever asked. We also buy black beans by the case.

Happy Birthday, Little D~
