Outdoor Ed

Logan has been away camping in the mountains all week, with his 5th grade class. He got back today, so I treated him to his favorite after school fro-yo treat when I picked him up! We're all so glad he's back!

The first words out of Callum's mouth when I woke him this morning were, "Logan's coming home today!!" :) The poor guy has really missed his buddy.

Joe, the bus driver, confirmed that out of every single kid he's asked on his route, Callum was the *only* one who said he missed his brother this week. Apparently, the rest of the kids mostly just shrugged and/or said "not really" when asked if they missed their sibling this week! LOL

So, when Logan joined me to pick up Callum at the bus stop this afternoon - I kid you not, Callum hugged Logan tightly for a solid two minutes, the minute he stepped off the bus. (Sadly, I didn't have my phone with me to capture such a sweet moment!)

Those two continue to melt our hearts. ❤️

School art

I had the pleasure of visiting/photographing Callum's class, making clay pots, yesterday. Callum still LOVES working with clay!! :)

Family Dinner

Jon and I are trying to make sure and do a sit-down-whole-family-dinner on Friday nights... So, tonight I made homemade cheese enchiladas and Mexican rice (all delish, if I do say so myself!) with cinnamon donuts for dessert! 😋

NYE Party

We invited several families over for NYE yesterday - nothing fancy, mostly just an excuse to get together since we hadn't seen our friends in awhile. Then, about a week ago, Jon decided he wanted to have a "cake off" and asked everyone to bake and bring a cake for the party.

We had an amazing selection and no one made the same type, which was pretty cool!!  Mine is the one in the first pic - a Champagne cake with Gin buttercream frosting (and my attempt at a "bubbly" top!). I thought it was delicious! And I don't often like/eat cake. Several guests thought it was "quite boozy", so I guess I'm just hanging out with the wrong crowd!! Haha!! ;-)

Hope everyone had a fun and safe New Years Eve, and a great New Years Day today!!

(Thanks to Jenn for taking all the fun pics)

Happy New Year!

Callum says, only 359 more days until Christmas!! 😂😂😂

Another day, another board game

We got Logan a new board game for Christmas: Stuffed Fables. It's a storybook and board game all in one! 👍🏼
