A week in review...

Each picture has a story. A long story. You only need to know that our life was altered as we befriended Influenza A. What a week!

Before and after

Refinished cabinet, new hardware and painted walls make a big difference.

Bad day

Had a bad day. Sunni was super sick, unable to care for herself or kids. I was supposed to be in Chicago for a board mtg and at church to lead Lenten service. There was a series of guests and rentals in oue building and a few meetings. rush rush rush...that defined the in prep for what could have been a really cool Lenten experience this happened...
(Good thing this church is filled with loving gracious people. I have much to learn from them.)

Happy No Diaper Day to us all!

It was underwear day for B and R today! No diapers. No pants. Undies and a t shirt. (Let the potty training officially begin!) While we didn't film a remake of Tom Cruise's Risky Business scene we enjoyed a dance party...and a day of no pants and big boy potty chairs!

After a while B got bored and took his chair for a drive. :)

Evie vs. Hazel

E is a lover not a fighter.

Growing up...

Ready or not...

A new, highly awarded safety car seat is reason to celebrate, right? Yes and No.
Yes - She is safe. She is in one of the best (in our price range) car seats available. She can withstand side, front, rear impact...and just think of what it will do, once in the car!
No - This is not a welcomed 'new'. I am not ready for this new, BIGGER seat.  It means she is growing up. In fact, this seat is just steps away from handing her the keys to the car, packing her up for college, co-signing her first apartment lease, walking her down the aisle, and nervously pacing in the waiting room or airport as we welcome her children/our grandchildren.  And to think, it started with the excitement of safety...and now I question my sanity. 
[For those who, laugh, scoff, or think I have extrapolated TOO far, too quick...I once thought that too.]

Since we are on the 'growing up' topic - and my heart rate is already elevated - here is our sweet, little, baby boy Benjamin. Sans diaper...sporting the latest in hybrid undies, the boxer brief. Let the potty training games - joys and perils - begin!
