I know this is a very long post...but I could not talk about the beach without mentioning why I am thankful. It could have turned out so very bad!!
We spent yesterday at Carlyle Lake. It is as close to a beach as you can get stuck in the middle of this great country. The day was planned by our Sunday School teachers. They have a boat and invited our class and their families to go tubing and skiing, and for a BBQ. We had a good time. The Man, TA, and AJ all went tubing. The boys were so excited and loved every minute of it.
Sweet Pea and I played it conservative and stayed in the boat. The Man rode the tube by himself. He had a blast..and eventually fell off. I would have loved to have video, or pictures of his wipeout...but I was too busy hanging on to Sweet Pea and the boat and fearing for my life. The Man did a great job holding on. The driver had to do lots of close turns and high speeds to get the man loose. Oh how I wish I had a third hand to hold onto the camera...
For Christmas Sweet Pea got her very own set of dishes...real ones. She has casserole dishes, pizza pans, whisks, wooden spoons, a colander, and all sorts of other things..and they are just her size...small. So last night we made mac and cheese for dinner and she was my big helper. I just had to share some pictures.
Here she is helping me put the cheese in the mixture.
Stirring her mac and cheese in her very own dish.
Ready to eat.
She was really thrilled to be helping and using her stuff.
