The Ball and strawberries

Here's my strawberry patch and I've got a bunch of strawberries growing. I'm excited. Soon I'll be planting the rest of the garden. I've been loving our warm beautiful weather. The kids and I have been having snack time or lunch picnic style.

We had our Resurrection Ball for church and had a great time. My pictures all turned out lousy though. Sorry. I was still sick and got worn out after I danced the Patty Cake Polka with Joffre Jr. The kids really are getting into the balls and enjoying them now. That's fun.

Better ?

Well I ended up with a sinus infection. Since I'm pregnant I have to just sweat it out. I think I had a turn for the better yesterday, and today I feel pretty well. We just had a 10 degree drop in temperature so I'm not sure if this is temporary or really improvement. Hope and pray for the best.

The kids are still pretty bored but are really doing well. I got the game Hungry Hippos from the thrift store awhile back and they have rediscovered it. They love banging away on that those hippos . I'm also reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe to them and they are loving it. They are just the right age for it and have the attention span to listen.

Today I got to have yummy bagel egg sandwiches made for me for breakfast by my husband. He has been super busy working at the store and one of our employees was out of town. So it is so nice to finally see him this week. I'm looking forward to being well and working at the store again. It's fun and I (embarrassed look) still need to finish the dragon on the mural in the kids room. I'll post a picture of it when I remember to take one.

This Friday is our church's Resurrection Ball and I bought a maternity dress on ebay and everything. I'm determined to go. Pray for my nose!

It has been a rough week. The kids and I were sick with an ugly head cold last week and I thought I was on the mend. Then this week I came down with a fever and have been shivering in bed while the kids go crazy and watch movies. I ended up sweating and panting after vacuuming the living room and kitchen.
Today was a cream of the crop day. Joffre Jr accidentally punched his sister in the nose. This sent Renata into hysterics as her nose was bleeding profusely. After I calmed them down and had Renata laying on the couch George kept stealing things from his brother to get him to chase him around the house. He laughed delightedly throughout this procedure. When I put a stop to the snatching he settled for running around the coffee the table going aaaaaaaaaaagggggggggghhhhh continually. I started to feel a desire to follow his example.
