I tried to think of a more jazzy title, but I just couldn't think of anything. So, I will keep it plain and simple :Sunday.
The weather was nice today...breezy and cooler. I can't say cool or even cold, but I can admit cooler. Was able to keep the air conditioning off all day, and that's what counts. As I sit here in my bed, I must be honest and say it is a little warm. But I know as the evening crawls by, it will be nice and brisk in my bedroom.
Today, I made by first attempt at Julia Child's beef bourguignon. I saw it on a television show the other day...and I am always into trying new recipes. And the attempt was utterly SUCCESSFUL!! The recipe called for it to be served on creamy mashed potatoes. And it was so delightful. I loved every bit of it, and we have plenty for a whole other meal. And the best part is that Matt loved it. That's the true test. And to make Matt even happier, I quickly made a pumpkin pie for him. His favorite, remember? I know how to make him happy.
But because of my cooking acquisition I didn't get to work on what I wanted to. I was hoping to work on organizing my bedroom. We have made some adjustments in the room in the past few months and it has been very unorganized. My scrapbook table is not usable..so, this week I plan on getting it up to speed. Don't you hate when you end the night without finishing what you intended to start and finish? Well, I guess my family's bellies are happy. I guess I finished something. See you later.

Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
I am back to this blog. I switched over a year ago and I didn't like it too much. So, I am back here. I am wanting and needing to write again. I am heading into a different season with my kids...they are getting bigger by the minute and they don't need me as much. I am not sure how to walk this out. It's a strange place to be. So, what's next? I am not sure, honestly. This has been one of the hardest years of my life. Losing my mom this past October has shaken me to the core...and I am such a different person. I am trying to find my place, and see what is next. The season is changing, but just not sure where I am going. Hold on tight!!!!
