On the Twelves

Twelve bits of my day:

* Finished reading book one of the Sisters Eight series with the girls while having a tea party.

* Mailed out Christmas cards. Photocards. With professional pictures. And they will arrive before Christmas. This is kinda a big deal for me.

* Made venison chili for the first, and definitely NOT last time. Yummy!

* Proudly listened to Aubrey tell me about her babysitting adventure yesterday, and how she handled a particularly challenging child.

* Set Lauren's on-line curriculum settings to 2nd grade. Smart cookie.

* Cleaned out my yahoo mail box - aka the junk mail box. Any guess how many unread messages there were?

* Remembered some special events in my life. Namely, Sasha's birth and Grandma Marg's passing.

* Played with my new, yet technologically old, cell phone. No more internet-at-my-fingertips, thankyouverymuch. (Andy thinks I'm crazy. I might be. But, I'm also $50 richer per month. ;-) )

* Listened to Sasha attempt to plunge the toilet. Twice. It was not overflowing, she just likes to think it is.

* Had a giggle-fest with Zoe. On that note, have you heard of Laughter Yoga? I am intrigued.

* Thanked the Lord that I am not yet parenting teenagers. I know I'll get there, but today I'm glad I'm not there yet.

* Enjoyed Blue Bell's Cookies-n-Cream ice cream. The best. Seriously.

As requested, more pictures. Well, a picture.
Zoe is quite the people person, and finds herself in many different arms at church. It so happened that Pastor Heath had her one Sunday as Church began, so she helped him with announcements. <3


  1. love! sounds like a great day! all of you daughters are so entertaining! and love the picture!

  2. That Zoe is a beauty!

    Aubrey is baby-sitting? Yowzer.

    Also, the blue bell ice cream. So. Jealous.

    I will guess 2,074.

    1. Aubrey was 'assisting' - a friend invited her friends to drop their children off at her house for the afternoon. One adult, Aubrey and two other older kids, and 16 little ones. :-)

      Oh, and 10,024. I wish I was exaggerating.

  3. Laughter yoga is great! I started a laughter group (sans yoga) in Monterrey. Just getting it started when the exodus began, but it was really, really great. Love you


Thanks for letting me know you were here! :-)
