We are looking forward to a week from today – we are going to go play at the DAY OUT WITH THOMAS on Memorial Day. We will participate in the fun activities beforehand and then get to ride on the train with Thomas the Engine pulling. I told the kids about it today and they were so excited, so we got out our Thomas the Train Set for awhile. JJ especially LOVED IT!

The weather has been so hot lately – and we still haven’t gotten our swamp cooler running yet. And all this summery weather has gotten me in the mood for FRUIT. So I bought a lot of it over the weekend and we have been having fruit salad for snacks. I love that my kids are starting to eat more fruit too! Much healthier snack than we have been doing. And every time I am cutting up the fruit, I just have to sing the Wiggles song, “Fruit Salad, yummy yummy….”

The kids have been taking showers lately – just because it is faster. But they really have been missing bathtime. So tonight, I let them each play in the tub for awhile. They especially loved the bubbles I put in!

Thursday is usually when I START the laundry. It’s one of those mundane things and so I procrastinate it and of course it isn’t put away until at least Saturday. Beth hopped in the Dryer today when I was getting clothes out. I swear she is getting cuter every day!

I have really slacked off in making cookies. When I just had JJ, I used to make cookies every week or so. Not sure why I totally stopped doing that. I love chocolate chip cookies, they are my favorite. I just haven’t found the time to make them. So today, I decided that we really needed cookies. Pete is coming down here for racquetball and their podcast this week, and so I am making Chicken Enchiladas for dinner and I thought Cookies would be a great dessert tonight. Plus they are just coming out of the oven now and that means JJ can have a warm cookie right after he gets home off the bus! What is better than a warm cookie for snack after school! And it’s Friday – and I need chocolate! 🙂

The kids had a picnic on our lawn today. They were too cute in their interactions with each other as they played and ate their lunch. JJ was using funny voices for his dinosaur stuffed animal and making his sister laugh.
I want to always remember the cute things that the kids say and I’m trying hard to remember to write these things down. We were out on a drive and it was raining and JJ said in a cute sing-songy voice: “We’re going on a special trip. Do you want to come with us, Rain? Just drop down on the van and we’ll take you.”

The roses in our yard are blooming. I just love roses. They always remind me of my Grandma Sorensen and the beautiful Peace Roses she had in her yard. I miss her. I can’t believe she has been gone for 13 1/2 years now. She lived right next door and I saw her almost everyday of my life up until she died. I hope she is watching out for her family as she always did. Love you grandma.
