Thomas made breakfast this morning (and took the photo) . . . waffles filled with bananas, peanut butter and jelly. Delish.
We couldn't make Mass on Saturday, so a late Mass on Sunday where the priest unfortunately mentioned donuts (the "Catholic Tradition"), which led to thoughts of them, and of course the car must have heard because next thing I knew we were standing in front of the glass case filled with sugar-glazed goodness.
Could they be brothers? Perhaps.
A little sharing.
Sigh. Laundry . . . and this is only a week's worth. Sigh.
Dinner - with Christopher out of town, and has been the majority of the week, dinners are quick and easy. Tonight - Soft Tacos.
Screaming for Ice Cream. Ahhh. . .ya.
Kitchen cleaned, kids in bed, time to try to get a little work done.
Okay, my original thought at the beginning of this was to do a nice 2-page layout. Are you laughing as hard as I am? And the photos I posted aren't even all the ones I took, though I could narrow them down to use just these. But clearly even just using these, they aren't going to fit on a 2-page layout. So now the search begins for a small album - I might have one. NOW, I get why there was a "planning" portion to the week. Stay tuned to see if these photos end up in an album!

We are a sporting family - so waking up to this: grey skies, wind and snow coming in over the mountains is not what we want to see. Gear up, boys!
Soccer parents are a hardy breed and Spring soccer will test our very souls and warmth ratings on our coats. Who's bringing the Hot Todies?
Mine is the bundled one. Wait. He's the one in the hat. Wait. He's the one right there on the left, in the red hat. Thank goodness for numbers on their jersies.
On the road again . . . Headin' for The People's Republic of Boulder and game two.
They say wait 5 minutes and the weather will change in Colorado. By the time we got to the next game the skies had cleared and the sun was out. The only evidence of our past suffering was the mound of coats and blankets in the back of the car.
Grandma brings treats - always. I think it's in the rule books. Apparently only the insides were worth eating to some small creature.
Aaannnddd. . .north we go again, to games three and four. My little "setter."
Two games, two photos, this time she's serving and Mom actually caught the ball in frame!
Cold, snow, wind, sun, more wind, drive, drive, drive, and a couple volleys thrown in for good measure. All in a day for sporting families. We ended with two losses 1-0; 8-1 (yikes) and two wins in straight sets.

Do you have one of these? A just-when-I-thought-it-was-Spring moment.
Do you have one of these? The coffee container, that until today when Spiderman found it, was just about holding coffee.
Do you have one of these? A teenage daughter - 'nuf said.
Do you have one of these? The 9 y.o. boy who still loves giving kisses and hugs.
Do you have one of these? The thrown together dinner - tonight Fetticini Alfredo and Chicken.
Do you have one of these? The left-at-the-table eaters.

The upside to have the husband out of town and having to take the kids to school is I can make an early morning trip to the grocery store and still be home by 8:30.
Looking west a couple blocks from the house, the foothills can barely be seen with the low-lying clouds filling up behind them and starting to boil over the tops. No mountain views today.

He plays with this . . .
