The Sprinkle

My Bible study (Edge group for those who know what that means) put on a "sprinkle" for one of our dear friends having her second, a boy, next month.  Once again, I let the people who are much more talented that me put everything together to make it beautiful and fun and I provide a clean house and nice platters to place all the food on!  The theme was alligators.

One of the girls came up with a cute game.  The mom-to-be loves See's Chocolate, so my friend created a gator out of the box.  She took pieces of candy out of the box and put them in baggies with questions about her pregnancy.  To get the chocolate back, she had to answer the question.  She had a few "Pregnancy Cards" she could play if there was a question she didn't want to answer.

It was a great afternoon celebrating The Bean and her little boy on the way!

It's been awhile...

A blog update has been stewing in my brain for awhile, but alas, the time to do it!  It's Saturday afternoon, pumpkin chocolate muffins are cooling, dishwasher is running, the Munchkin and hubby are both napping, and I'm listening to Husker football online.  I win.

The new job is great.  It's a lot of work and not enough time to do it all that I want but I make the most of it.  My co-workers are passionate, caring, and humble.  I'm so grateful.

Little L is now 19 months old and I think the terrible twos are starting a little early.  Not that she's terrible all the time, but she definitely has an opinion she will express at times and has developed some selective listening.  But she's also super affectionate with hugs and kisses, likes to help us, and is talking more.  She says mama, dada, whoa, ice, hi, bye bye, uh oh, and her favorite food, cheese.  She is very friendly and likes to wave and blow kisses.  She has also become an expert climber; as a result, we're now in mommy and me gymnastics on Saturday mornings.  She's the youngest one in her class and is still working on following the teacher's directions but we have fun together.  She loves looking at her books, especially The Very Hungry Caterpillar, riding in her swing in the front yard, and dancing.  Now that I'm at work all day, I cherish even more the time we spend together on the evenings and weekends, especially when the three of us are all at home.

My dad and his amazing lady came to visit us a couple weeks ago, and we made the most of the trip.  We went to Oktoberfest, participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer's in memory of my Grandma Jo, and went to the state fair.  Headed back up to Nebraska in a couple weeks for a wedding.  We're flying this time so say a prayer for us!

Hopefully a Halloween post will be written before Thanksgiving! :)
