Bear with me, this post is all over the place. Being home the last couple of weeks has been utter BLISS for this newby SAHM. I have longed for this time for a very long time... I'm able to prepare breakfast for the kiddos, read with Hoot every morning and manage afternoon "tea for two" with the Doll. Her English is coming along and I enjoy working with her. We started speech therapy, but after our visit to Shriners, they tell us she really doesn't need it. I'm working with her at home on stretching and mobility. The good thing is she enjoys doing things for herself. Tomorrow is Lambert's birthday. We're going to the circus... he's a giver that man. So tonight were having a real fancy birthday dinner... grilled steak, potatoes, asparagus, and salad. (i should make sweet corn, but that wouldn't be nice) For his birthday cake we made his all time favorite New York Cheesecake with Carmel sauce and strawberries. YUMMY! We even brought out the silver and crystal... it doesn't happen often enough. I'm ususally too tired to clean it, but I love it! Hoot has already dressed for the occasion. He came out at 3:00PM in slacks, a button down adorned with his chapel tie. I asked if he was going to wear his formal flip flops. Fair question, it's summer. As he rolled his eyes, he informed me he would be wearing his church shoes with dress socks... as opposed to sports socks. I have cleaned out and under things that have needed to be cleaned for YEARS, but there was no time... It feels great. I've been able to finish two books which is a lot for me and I devoured them both! I highly recommend each although they are very different reads. I'm certain they have both been on every must read list from Oprah to Paige at Simple Life... I'm always behind.
We'll post birthday celebration photos soon! (maybe, I'm a blog slacker lately)
