too busy to blog? nah!
With Sam home, every day is a party. This fine morning, I made the bacon, and Jonathan made the scrambled eggs. We wrote a list of guests for Jon's upcoming birthday celebration, and decided on what food to make. Sam chose a gift to order for him. I left with Char and Cam for gymnastics, Sam and Margaret (she had the day off from work) brought Lydia over to Emily's house, where Kathryn was working...oh, it's confusing, isn't it? Anyway...we went to the thrift store first, Char, Cam, and I. We found Nike shinguards, a pair of really sweet Reebok sandals for one of the boys, a few shirts for me.
After gymnastics, we went to BJ's for coffee, half and half, walnuts, flaxseed, and coconut oil.
Home...ah, home. It was busy! Dinner for 13...ham and applesauce, salad, and baked potatoes.
The older kids all went to the youth meeting, just Char and Cam and Lydia and Paul and I are here. Lydia is eating graham crackers and fussing...she is getting tired. She is so funny, she is only a year and a half, and she repeats so many things, and says, "shoes off, let me see it, uh-oh!, go bye-bye, baby, look it!, ba-ba, daddy, mommy, down da slide, SONJA!!!(Onya!), kitty", and lots of other jibber jabber.
She keeps busy. I honestly don't know how I raised 16 kids...how did I manage? I know I am old, but at this time of night, ha 8:30, I'm tired!
