2 weeks

A lot has happened in the last 2 weeks around here. Leland was suspended for the rest of the day, a friday or two ago, for being involved in a fight. Well, He was shoved by one kid into another kid and those two kids were the ones fighting. Leland was defending himself like we had taught him to do.

I quit cleaning the office bldg at night. It was too hard on the kids and myself and I am GRATEFUL I don't have to do that anymore. It is nice to be home and not have to worry about dragging them out and having to go clean. So now we can eat dinner at a slow pace and get home work done at home and just enjoy the evening at home with each other.

My 3 turned 8 years old on Monday, February 22nd. It was a glorious day of fun and excitement. I had there presents waiting for them before breakfast, which was pancakes in their favorite colors of blue, green and pink. They loved their gifts and were able to play for a little while before the bus came. Sent them off to school and made invitations for their birthday party on Saturday. They won a free birthday party at the local movie theater/bowling alley/ jump place. The kids are so excited! They can invite a total of 9 friends (3 each) and they are bowling and having pizza. It should be a lot of fun. I went to the local grocery store and got cupcakes for the class and special ones for the kids. The boys had one that looked like hamburgers, but it was all frosting painted to look that way. Paeton had one that looked like a Hot fudge sundae. I even got them each 2 balloons in their favorite colors and took it all up to their class. I had a picture of the kids when they were babies too see if their classmates could tell who was who. They all said that Paeton was easy because she had on pink, but they all got the boys wrong. It was fun. We came home after school and opened presents from Grandma and Grandpa and than went to get the boys dinner from McDonald's and Paeton's from Subway. Came home and watched a movie and played for a while until bed time. When I layed down with each of them I asked them if they had a great birthday. Their reply was all the same, "Mom, This was the best birthday ever!". I am so glad they had a great day celebrating them!

Paeton got her ears pierced today. It was one of her birthday presents and she looks adorable. The boys got Cub Scout shirts and have not wanted to take them off at all. They are so excited for Cub Scouts, which tomorrow night is their first Pack Night and they have 50 millions questions about Cub Scouts.

I am in charge of Blue & Gold tomorrow night and I am so ready for it to be OVER!!! I have struggled with this calling and will be glad when I don't have to do it anymore.

Rod is traveling for work again and is gone every week to Boston. No complaints, he has a job and all is good.

I am tired of being cold all the time and CAN NOT WAIT for Spring/Summer to get here.

I have started my 2nd round of P90X and it will end a week before my birthday. The first round went pretty good and I know I could have done better, but that is okay. I still went down 3 sizes and I hope to firm up more this go around.

I am playing catch up on so many things and have so many more to finish and I hope one day to get them all done.

I had to change my picture and background because I am in such a need of warmth. I am tired of being cold all the time and the weather is so yucky outside.

I wish Phil had not seen his shadow and that Spring was right around the corner so it would warm up around here.
