just another day in the life


In true blogger confusion....all of my pictures have uploaded out of order.

This guy got his roof expander and lip bumper installed today. His mouth is a bit tender tonight, he's slobbery-ier than usual and he's finding out what he can and can't eat with these applications in his mouth. doesn't it look like he's in pure shock in this pic?

On Valentine's Day, we had the immense pleasure of attending a tea with the lovely G gals...just a portion of them pictured here...see more below, naturally, out of order. While we were there, we were smashed with yet more snow. It was very lovely and quite fitting for our peaceful, lady-like time there...but getting outta the driveway was another story. 

This picture was taken today. Molly was up from about 1:15 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. expelling the contents of her stomach. Can I just say though that she is a very efficient thrower upper? She wastes no time, doesn't whine and holds her own hair back. Takes her drink, wipes her face and lays back down. She's feeling better now but still laying low.

This kid turned 18 last Friday. I meant to blog about him closer to his day but it was a crazy couple of days. It's amazing to me how fast the time has gone....and I look at pics like the one below and I'm floored...

Whatever they were watching, it was so good that even the baby was intrigued.  

Ok, so yeah...here's the Tea Party "younger" ladies. There were five adult women as well as Mel, Ellyn and the little ladies pictured here. We enjoyed dainty treats, tea, and fellowship. Thank you, G Family

That evening, after the tea...kinda late - ish...we met up at Lindo Mexico in Greenwood, to celebrate E's bday. He and Will had worked at our church, serving dinner for a marriage conference. Melanie had babysat for some friends of ours. I got the van stuck at the top of the driveway and D and I worked on that, along with our awesome neighbor, Joe, who saw us in our plight and walked down with his snow blower to give us a shove and a clearing. Jen also joined us! Cammi came along with the kids too.

I just wanted to make sure I remembered this. She actually really honestly believes this is her name.
I love it.

The mosaic table top that David made for us. We will probably make it into a coffee table but I think it's a beautiful way to remember our boy. 
Not a lot to say and yet there is much catching up to do. My brain is fuzzy today after our late night adventures, thanks Moo....I need all the help I can get.

As I mentioned above, Levi had his expander and lip bumper put in this morning. He handled it much better than I had anticipated but tonight it's proving to be a bit more challenging....drool everywhere. He even has a nifty lisp...

Molly's laying on the couch...because she's down and out, it seems we all feel that way. David is certainly fighting something and he hasn't left our bedroom all day. Will and E are working this evening. Mel is ...well, I'm not sure what she's up to..."checking on Molly".

I can say this....after living in the frozen tundra that has been Indiana since December, today's temps of 48 and up have been most welcome! Thursday, it's supposed to be be 59 with a chance of severe thunderstorms (which I love, when they aren't dangerous). What a balm for my soul to have sunshine and milder temps today!!

In 17 days, we will be heading to Orange Beach. You can feel the rumble of excitement welling up underneath all of us..or maybe that's the stomach bug talking....I dunno. whatever it is, the winds of change are blowing thru. and they kinda need to cuz it doesn't smell right here today. haha. I'm kidding.

Also, one week from this Thursday, I will be going to help my friend, Kellie N with her 3rd Craft Liberation. I'm really excited for the chance to help out at the craft house and for the change of scenery...Praying for mild weather so we don't get stuck in the hills of southern Indiana.

Ok, I've just bored myself back to sleep so I will close this for today...

couple things rolling around in my head...

1.)  do you wanna build a snow man? (from the new Disney movie, Frozen...which, if you haven't seen it yet, do it! it's such an adorable movie!! great music, sisters and a hilarious snowman)
2.) Matthew 11:28-29 - Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. Jesus Christ
3.) Polyvore....check it out. Go to Pinterest and put that in and a whole world of outfit possibilities will pop up. I need help in this department. a lot.

See ya!
