Today, after I got home from Bible Study with the 3 youngest kids, Brianna and I made Albondigas (it's a Mexican meatball soup).
As Daddy likes to remind me, I'm a white girl and can't cook Mexican food like his momma can- so we went off an online recipe that got rave reviews.
Brianna did most of the work and I kinda supervised.
It sure smells like a Mexican kitchen! I'll let you know what Daddy thinks!
During Bible Study, Megan and Matthew's class came into the luncheon and sang a few songs for us women. It was sooo cute but unfortunately I didn't bring my camera. So... here's a pic of them at home instead :p
The older three kids were lucky enough to get invited to go camping with their uncles and aunts. Our whole family was originally scheduled to go but things didn't quite work out as planned :(
Patches of snow greeted them when they arrived.
And a large snowstorm bid them farewell on the morning they left.
Sarah dropped by one day last week and spent some time with the kids and I.
She met our new dog.
See?! Doesn't he look happy now?
She got him out of his rump. Now they wrestle around like two little kids. They chase sticks together like this one they are holding. It's sooo cute.
I somehow forgot that new puppies like to chew on things...
I think another reason she was adopted was because I'm feeling the baby urge kicking in. Since I have been denied any more babies-- a puppy will have to do. : )
And there is no need to worry... if she ever gets the baby urge I will get her a stuffed animal cuz these two are not able to reproduce. Ewww, imagine what that poor puppy would look like!!! LOL! After several hours of deliberation and a few arguments.... she was named Delilah.
And I can't end a post without a DangerBoy update.
He never disappoints us, does he?
He had his monthly E.R. visit when big brother helped him out of his crib in the morning...
and in doing so, accidentally pulled too hard on his little arm and popped his elbow out of his socket. Daddy and mommy took him to the hospital and he's much better now.
That's it for now, folks. See you soon.
