this week... { July 15-20, 2012}

This week has been a typical one...busy, but fun!
Lizzy can hardly stand to go a day without a play date with Isabel and Germain. They have had so much fun together this summer. I'm so happy Mr. W is finished with school and life has resumed! We've missed getting together with them the last four years.

Here are a few pictures from our week...

Mr. Fuzzers is so sweet and welcomes each day with a HUGE smile! Of course he's always happy when daddy brings him to me each morning. 
(I'm certain it has nothing to do with the fact that mommy = food) 
This morning when Mr. W went in to get him, he was sitting up in his bed. He said it looked like he was in jail. He was just sitting and waiting.
His hair is still fuzzy and NEVER wants to lay down. It keeps us quite entertained. This morning when Mr. W snuggled him, he left his scent of cologne on his hair. I've sniffed his hair all day long to smell my sweetie!

Lizzy NEVER stops creating! (I don't know where she gets that from) One project this week was a time machine. It's still in the works.
Tuesday we visited the Treehouse Museum with some friends. I was happy to see her imaginative, playful spirit. I hope that never leaves.
 She and I laid on my bed last night and talked. She's been reading a childcraft book, and had many, many questions...about anatomy and such. I love our mommy daughter talks. I love that she can talk to me about anything. Please let that last forever!
 Today it was mommy-Lizzy time while Charlie napped. We  painted pictures, wrote cousins letters, and played kid pix. She had my undivided attention for 2 hours!
It's so fun have a 10  year old and a 9 month old. It feels like the best of both worlds. I love the stage where Lizzy is- mommy daughter talks, discovering her independence, and maturing. And I love the innocence of our baby boy.They help me keep perspective and remember how quickly each stage passes.

Tonight is our town celebration for Pioneer Day. We will eat dinner with friends, and there will be much laughter. There always is. I was making banana pudding and Lizzy was talking to Isabel on the phone. She said, "you just wait Isabel, it tastes like heaven!" I laughed out loud! I have never heard her compare anything to heaven. The grape soda is for her too. I guess this picture is what heaven looks like to Lizzy.

We finally made it home after a year and a half!
We had a wonderful vacation and break from the everyday routine. It was so wonderful spending time with my family, especially my mom and sisters. I miss them like crazy. 

These are just a few of the pictures...
The clan on the 4th of July. 
I believe there are 8 family members missing, but who knows when we would all be together for a family pic.

This picture happens to be one of my favorites. 
I love my sis! I love that we both scrunch our noses when we laugh!

...and I love that I feel as happy as I look in this picture- even though the look may not be very attractive.

Mr. Fuzzers and Grandma

Lizzy and I walking through the "forest". This was her request since there is no such thing where we live.
(yep, I brought a tick back from this walk. YUCK! still makes my skin crawl)

Mr. W checking out a spider and it's web.

Sis and her fam

We found a new friend while picking blackberries!

Blackberry picking with mom and Sarah. One of my highlights!

Mr. Fuzzers' best buddy!

Sister and G on the water slide grandma bought!

On the 4th dad hooked up the projector for an outdoor movie party!

...And now that I've looked over all of the pictures I'm ready to go back!
My only complaint is that Mary delivered my new nephew while I was waiting to board the airplane to come home. I'm glad I at least got to see her in the hospital before I left... except that she and Lizzy were crying when they said goodbye. But they usually do. It's sweet really.
