Also, I started reading The Great House of God: A Home for your Heart by Max Lucado. I read this once, we were given the book as a wedding gift from the ladies of our church, but it's got a lot more meaning now. If you've never read, I recommend it. I stumbled on it the other day cleaning all the back issues of Luke's magazines out of a drawer and started thumbing through right then. Hello God, thank you .
Things are busy on the house front, there are some issues with the house we have under contract. If the seller doesn't resolve them it's looking like we may move on. We do have other options, so time will tell. This is a lesson for me, I want answers right away. I am being patient. I'm also letting Luke handle all of it, my two Mama's keep me on my toes, I don't need to have anything else be my priority at the moment.
Speaking of a little Mama, Jo's eyes are almost completely better (the eye drops they give you for pink eye are amazing!). Her ears are still very congested and she can't hear much. I've kept her home from school every day this week so far as she sort of just crashes and gets really cranky in the afternoon. Hopefully next week she'll be able to go. We have dentist appointments tomorrow and there isn't any pre-K on Fridays so maybe by Monday she'll be able to go again.
Enjoy the photos! Some are very cropped, I didn't want to share the face of the kids around them, but you get the idea:)
Tinkerbell and her cousin Cinderella. They were beautiful, but other than attention from her cousin Marie wasn't too into the party. We have different plans for her birthday.
I caved and got Josie play makeup for her birthday. She got to open it up and "do" my face for me. I've never looked better.
Our wonderful friend Alicia (Gavin's Voice) sent Marie and Josie a goodies bag. Marie got the blanket she's laying on and that little pony tucked under her arm. Pony has now become our almost constant companion.
her's while Marie waved hers around like crazy most of the morning. Every time she'd loose it she'd squeek and whine until you got it back into her hand for her.
Marie loves sitting up like a big girl. She was so funny sitting in the recliner with Luke the other night I had to get a picture. The best part about it? She's actually able to control her head a bit and catch it some when she starts to flop. It is amazing to see that.
By the way, Winnie the Poo she's laying on came from the Avon catalog (I want to say it was about $20). It is amazing as far as a positioning tool. I think it works better than the boppy pillow and really supports her head. In addition, its fun to play with too. I have no idea if they're still selling them as we got this one at Christmas but I highly recommend it.
