I'm sure that Karen is also missing these three little boogers of ours. I know how much she loved being awakened at 7 a.m. sharp every morning by little feet pounding up the stairs and little voices calling, "Auntie Karen! Auntie Karen!" I know how much she appreciated the voices outside the bathroom door reminding her "If it's yellow let it mellow.." (Delaney learned about that at school.) I know for sure she misses the hours she spent with Delaney during nap time making sparkly unicorn sticker mosaics, building "habitats" for birds consisting of at least 30 pine cones on the back deck, playing Princess Memory, putting together puzzles, and making paper airplanes in all shapes and sizes with a name on each one (and that's just a few things -- Delaney is tireless).
Now we've got a visit from Grandpa coming up, and a visit from Grandma a couple weeks after that, and I've got a birthday party to plan. More good times ahead!
|Movie night. We saw Monsters Inc.|
|Delaney is asking Timmy to share his ice cream at one of our favorite places, Cow Cafe. That ice cream was so yummy after all those weeks of being sweets-deprived!|
|Skype call from Tim right after church, which would have been perfect except for Timmy fussing and crying for most of the conversation|
|These lamb cupcakes are not nearly as easy to make as they appear, but we had fun in the attempt!|
|Delaney's cupcake lamb looks scared, and with good reason.|
|My lamb was the most pathetic of all. It didn't even have ears. If not for Karen, it wouldn't have had eyes either.|
|The bubbles they got in their baskets were a huge hit. They didn't even last two days.|
And lastly, a video of cake-covered Timmy laughing.
