A Little Bit of This a Little Bit of That

This title reflects my very random post today. We have kept pretty busy the last week or so. Saturday my wonderful husband kept the kids(or so I thought) so my friend Heather and I could go shopping for a fun filled day without the constant interruptions of the little ones for my birthday. I left Saturday morning and went to Heathers house and we spent a lot of time bargain hunting(I love Clearance Sales!) and went out to eat. It was great getting away without the kiddos. When I arrived home Gabe met me at the front entry with news of a surprise for me in the kitchen. I went in and saw that while I was gone Carl had sent the kids over to my mom and dads and had Brian from work come over and they started the tile on our backsplash in the kitchen, this had been a long time coming and I was not so subtly dropping hints to Carl for awhile that I would love it to get done, it has since been completed and looks awesome! That was a great surprise. That night Heather and Mike were also going to watch our kids so we could go out to eat for my birthday so we got to their house in Huxley and I walked in with Ty and there was almost everyone from our connection group plus some friends waiting to surprise me, and I was definately surprised! Heather and Kate had made soup and bread and it was so much fun just hanging out with everyone and spending a great evening with friends. When we got home late that night I came out of the bathroom to find a Tiffany's box on my pillow with a great necklace inside, that was a BIG surprise too! The next morning we had church and met my mom and dad at Hickory Park and the "boys" surprised me with a book set. It was a great birthday and I realized how blessed I am at all of our wonderful friends and family! This week we have been enjoying the much warmer weather and actually getting out of the house. We started D6 again last night and Gabe was so proud of this crown he made. He has been wearing it a lot of the day today too. This morning we all made cookies and I'm not sure what I would do without my "helpers"(probably have a lot less mess and more cookies) Ty had his first taste of cookie dough, I think he is a fan just like big brother. I think that about sums up my random thoughts for now:)

The 'splash' looks great! Let me come watch your boys sometime so I can see it! And sorry I had to miss the birthday bash. :( But, the farm was calling my name.
