A good read and a birthday party!

Its cold and windy today, I am sick and we have a game today. Not a good combination! It's not good when this momma is sick. Ok, its not good when any momma is sick. My dishes are stacking up and my laundry pile is becoming a mountain.

Some days I feel like I'm always starting over and never getting anywhere. When I was a kid my mom used to say "Cleaning the house when your children are growing up is like shoveling the walk when its still snowing"...I love that. It is so true.

I love a clean and orderly house but somethings are just much more important. Like today, Carters game is more important. The dishes can wait while I rest up for this afternoon.

A few weeks ago I picked up the book Tuckets Travels at the library. We were in a hurry and I picked it based on the cover. I thought Carter would enjoy. Turns out we all enjoy it! Every night we read it aloud as a family. We can not get enough. Last weekend we read 15 chapters! I highly recommend it to anyone.

The kids wanted to read by candlelight the other night. So we lit the candles and all sat around the table. It was fun.
After we read we had a birthday party for Bobo! He turned 3. We even made him a cake.  Yes, a real one. We wanted some cake too. Hehe...
We sat Taylor on the floor beside him and put the cake on her lap. On the plate, of course! Bobo literally took the whole piece in one bite. He didn't even chew the bone! Silly puppy.

Well I am off to rest some more before the big game. Oh yeah and wash whites! I'm assuming the family would like to wear socks today. :o)

Sorry to hear you are sick..praying for you. And you are absolutely right...when mamma is sick, the house seems to fall apart. I really don't have an excuse with so many teenagers in the house LOL.

The book you recommended sounds awesome...need to research and see where I can find it.
