Life is made up of many pieces, like a puzzle. Here I attempt to put them all together.

Cooking Up a Storm

This weekend has been full of kids. I guess that's not news. Every day around here is full of kids.

Amanda had two friends over Saturday afternoon and they stayed for the night. They had a great time together. I was glad because a few sleepovers recently have turned a little sour. They did each other's makeup, went for a long walk, played with the little kids, and watched TV. Saturday evening they made Bacon Wrapped Burgers and fries for dinner.

We woke up this morning to freezing rain and a coating of ice on everything. By lunch time though the temperature was up around 40 and by early afternooon the sun came out.

Austin made some Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes and a Cream Cheese Strawberry Pie for lunch. It was SO good. We also had broccoli and cheese.

And the finished product!

Michael has continued to be very fussy and clingy the last two days. He's not complaining about anything hurting and not running a fever. I've been giving him some Tylenol just in case something is hurting and he doesn't know how to tell me. He does have a slight cold so I've been giving him some Benedryl at night to help with the symptoms and to help him sleep.

I got to take the most wonderful nap this afternoon. Doug watched the one daycare child who was here at the time. Michael was asleep and Austin and Amanda were watching Disney.

Doug has squad duty this evening. His shift is from 5:45 - 9:45 this evening.
