Claire's homemade doll

Claire has been wanting to make a doll for a long time and we finally finished it this weekend. It was a pretty quick little project and Claire is in love with "Nellie".

I've been robbed.

I needed this quote today: 

Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.

Claire's pink team

Claire was on another basketball team again this year but with all her friends so it was much more fun. They even got to wear pink for the games. 
She did great this year! She is getting really good at handling the ball and being aggressive. We were really proud of her growth in her skills this year. 

Love day 2014

Just realized I had a picture of each of my loves on love day so I thought I would share. Those kids are my joy. Didn't get a picture of my valentine though which is funny. But he was there and we had a nice quiet valentines together. 
We made heart pancakes for breakfast, I went and helped with Claire and Jakes school parties. Chris took me out to lunch and Sam tagged along. We got yummy cupcakes afterwards. 
Then I finished up the kids traditional big heart cookies. 
I also got a cute heart backdrop that Sam helped me try out.
