The McDonalds in town was being renovated for months and months this winter and as soon as we could, Rich and I took the kids there to see what it was like after it was completed and open for business again. While we were there, David took this photo of us.
David taking a nap with Sherlock.
Sarah and I made pies. As usual, my homemade crust was disappointing. I’ll never get it right.
I was sitting in the recliner when Grace got home!! After a flurry of activity welcoming her back, with lots of hugs, I sat back down. Soon I noticed that children were all around me so I had David (who was also sitting on the floor in front of me) take a photo. My heart was full to bursting.
Weekend box of donuts. Dave was so happy he ran around the house with them before settling down to enjoy. I believe he ate three.
Saturday. Sarah had a friend over for the morning. I took this photo as they were all enjoying Youtube videos and were so cute. David has my robe on. He’s like my twin or something. And you can tell Seth is happy to have his big sister home.
We wanted a photo with Caleb but he wouldn’t cooperate.
Michael and Grace, with sick Sarah in the background. Yes, we are still going through the *end of winter sick-bug* here. Currently, I am the last one recovering. I’ve been sick for three days but thankfully last night’s sleep was much better and I feel I’m at the end of it now.
Grace and I went for a walk together on Monday.
Sarah being cute.
Grace in the morning with our beautiful Bagheera.
Sick Sarah with her things all around her. (the loaf of bread is a squishie)
I discovered Caleb sleeping in my bed one afternoon.
Sick mom with a big ten year old on her lap. This was right before I pushed him off. 😉
Grace and I (and Walter) have been working on a puzzle.
RIch was away for two nights and one of those nights I stayed up watching The Office with Grace and Dave. It was fun.
Then, I said I was going to bed so I went in my room. But a cat followed me, so as I was chasing him out, Grace and Dave got in my bed before I could! It was so funny. I love my children SO SO much. And I think they like their mom just a little bit, too. 🙂
Me, last night after a nice long long bath.
I had to share this photo of my brother. He had a nice hair cut and beard trim and sent me a photo of himself. This man is a constant comfort and friend to me, my dear brother Dave.
Every morning when I get up I am attacked by three excited cats waiting for their one and only can of catfood for the day. But yesterday we ran out so I had to post this sign by their food bowl to let them know.
Last but not least, Rich got home safely last night and the dog Facetimed with Ethan at college.
HAPPY THURSDAY DEAR ONES!!!!
You are Loved.

I love how Walter helped with the puzzle … so cute 🙂 How awesome to have Grace home, and to be able to enjoy such precious family time together. Oh and hope you were able to get more canned cat food 🙂
