All dressed up in their costumes, waiting on Daddy to say, “It’s time!”

Just a beautiful morning…

Spent the evening before in the E.R., checking for broken facial bones and concussions… Thankfully it was just a really good shiner, shockingly enough, administered by his younger brother. They were grounded for a week!

Part of the boys’ punishment was no video games and I took the opportunity to go through all the movies and games and get them organized again. Ran across this little Garfield cd and couldn’t believe I found it. It was the boys’ favorite when they were in car seats, riding around Des Moines in a minivan. We still quote this movie. We’ve had fun this week, watching it again too!

The boys and I went to the library, after school, twice this week. I think they were desperate for entertainment, knowing that they didn’t have use of the X-Box at home…

A neighbor forgot to turn off their sprinklers and it was 20 degrees overnight. I hope no damage was done to their stuff, but the frozen grass sure was a beautiful, shiny sight!

My cousin, Debbie and I took a day off together and spent the afternoon painting something pretty! She painted a plate and I did a giant spoon rest. It’s so much fun, almost therapeutic and we get together at least once a year to paint pottery. I’m so glad she and I share this!
