Photo Fridays: Week 4

Back again?  Well, since you’re here, why don’t you take a look at our week:

The exciting moment when Brian opened up the crate that we haven’t seen since the 
beginning of August.

This smoothie was made with the last of our frozen strawberries.  It was a reminder to pray for peace in the valley where we live.  A tribal fight has been going on between two villages, one of which happens to be the village that has a monopoly on strawberry sales.  Our yard meri and strawberry seller can’t come to work until the conflict is resolved.  (We are not in any danger, but it is hard to hear the reports because we know people from both villages).

Making cookies with mom.

A superhero cape, an apron  and a friend are very important details when one is making cookies.

A sick baby.  Our family was hit by a stomach bug this past week.  
Greg is the only one who hasn’t caught it.

Sheets, pajamas, towels and stuffed animals out in the morning sun.  
Evidence of a long night with a sick baby.

Exceptions were made to the normal rule that pacifier and froggy are only used in the bed.

While Brian and Caleb were sleeping off their sickness one morning, Greg got to go to daycare so that they could get some peace and quiet.  He ran all the way ahead of me because he was so excited.

The weight room is just down the street from our house.  Although I prefer to run outside, I’m very thankful for access to a treadmill, because my kids are up with the sun and in bed after sundown.  It’s not a good idea for a woman to be out running alone after dark, so I often end up going to the weight room when I get time to sneak away.

Happy November!  This is our Thanksgiving “tree” that we started this morning.  It’s hanging over our table.  Greg is very excited about the prospect of hanging up new leaves every day.

Beautiful fog this morning.  (The view from our front porch)
