Another hospital visit, another stuffie

Call me a sucker, but I figured a new stuffie for Callum (and his brother) was warranted, given how brave he was during his poke and physical today (all continues to look great!!). ❤️

Tonight we introduced the boys to a new game called Codenames. The boys loved it! 😁

Braces coming soon...

It's about that time! Logan's orthodontist had him get X-rays done today - fancy ones where they'll create a 3D rendering of his mouth and jaw! Next we'll talk about what treatment plan our orthodontist recommends, when to start, etc!

Sugar quota for the week!

Logan helped me make chocolate and maple glazed donuts this morning. Everyone voted for the chocolate (but me - ha!). 😋

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!! 😂😂😂
