snacking on apples
Cheerios and Rice Krispies for breakfast! Yumm...
The reason for Clara staying over night last night is because little sister Ruby is getting scans today to see what's going on with her cancer. So please remember to pray for Ruby today and for Lydia. We know that God is powerful enough to remove all of those nasty cancer cells. We've seen the amazing things He's done already! We also have comfort in knowing that no matter what the results, God is in complete control and has had this all in His plans from the beginning. But we're still praying that His will is for her cancer to be wiped out completely!

Last week we had some gorgeous weather and it actually hit 71 degrees one day here in Des Moines! It was so great to get out and enjoy the outdoors without bundling up! In fact, my kids were the only ones on the street that had long-sleeves on. I felt like the over-protective mom, but they're also the littlest kids on the street and we've had enough runny noses around here lately that I didn't want to risk it. The girls had a blast doing some sidewalk chalk drawings. Sorry about Addie's hair in her face - she was too busy to let me fix her ponytail.
Well, I'm not sure what happened to our beautiful weather. It's foggy and chilly and rainy out today. A perfect morning for the library - so that's what we did! Now we're eagerly awaiting the arrival of cousins Clara and Ruby. They're coming over for a playdate while their mommy has an appointment. Adeline is sooo excited! I'm glad she loves her cousins so much!

Here I am posing with all the pots I just washed. There were more, but I had already put them away due to lack of drying space. Amazingly enough, we were able to get the house back to normal in just 1 1/2 hours! Thanks to Chad's hard work. It was so nice to wake up on Saturday morning with no work to do! Well, we had fun and hope all our friends did too!
