In Colorado...

Hi. I am still in Colorado. The kids and I came up to visit my family for a while. My Grandpa (sometimes referred to as Opa on this blog) is very sick. It has been a hard visit. We will be coming home on Friday.
So many people have come by to see my Grandpa, and we have been able to see most of them too. Claire has had a great time showing off... A few days ago Claire and I had the following conversation...
C- Mom, did you see that guys ears???
E- What guy?
C- That guy with the thing in his nose!
(she was referring to a very good friend of the family who is on oxygen)
E- Oh, yeah. His name is Gene. That thing in his nose helps him breath better.
C- Oh, but did you see his ears?
E- What was different about them?
C- He had ROCKS in them!!!
E- ?????????
Jeff chimed in at this moment and clued me in to the fact that she was talking about his hearing aides!!!
We all had a good laugh over that one.

Pictures coming shortly...

My ladybug

Claire did a great job in her first school program last night. They sang lots of cute songs about bugs. Claire got to wear a ladybug hat, and she looked too cute! I'm still working on the video... it's really hard to understand all of those sweet voices from far away.

Claire and her BFF Gracie Claire... How cute are they?
Luke and his Sissy...
Me and the kids... I was a little over enthusiastic about her performance, can you tell? :) It's rare that I get a picture with me and my munchkins.

On another note... go check out ZoeJo. My dear friend Sarah has a new design blog... very cool! She is a great artist and a very great friend... I'm proud of you Sarah! :)

How I spent my weekend...

1. I have a cold. yuck.
2. Got up (against my will) on Saturday morning.
3. Headed to the laundry mat. (I haven't been to one since sophomore year at ACU.)
4. Spent $32 in quarters doing laundry. Folks, that is a huge, whopping, 17 loads of laundry!!!!! My dryer is broken... it is rumored to be fixed soon. ;)
5. Went to church. The worship was beyond amazing. Wow!
6. Woke up Sunday morning feeling a tad better.
7. Had lunch with my three favorite people.
8. Went shopping, BY MYSELF!!! It was fabulous! I spent tons of time trying on clothes, walking aimlessly around the Nordstrom's shoe department, and listening to the silence around me.
So, all in all, it was a great weekend... if only I could breath through my nose!
Tomorrow Claire has her first school program... anticipate some fun pictures and videos!!!
