WWW ~ Sleepy ones, Thank Yous, Long Lost Friends & Easter Nest Cookies


Yet another fun weekend here, well it was actually a little slower. I was so exhausted that I just hang out around the house. I've picked up the extra shift so I'm working Sundays also. Sunday's are a little tricky for sleep ... lol. Saturday I work at 6am - 9ish (this weekend a little after 10am), then Saturday night 11:30p to 2:00am and now insert Sunday 6am to 8:30ish. I even got in a quick work out before Church, sorry pastor that I was nodding off didn't mean too! After that it was grocery shopping and even a visit with a friend from High School that I haven't seen since I was PG with Caden! I really meant to take a nap or go to bed early ... LOL

On a prayer request Rick's had 1 interview that called him back for a 2nd interview, sad point it's part time :(, no benefits which currently covers me and the boys ... ugh! Right now I'm down $600 a month so I guess I'll take it and hope it turns to more? And look into health care out of my pocket .. ugh again!

Hugs everyone thanks for all your kind words and prayers!

While Rick worked on the doors again we put the boys in bed together!
Caden even gave Cole a hug in his sleep!
Caden's Week, he's missing daycare!
Try on brothers shoes and run around half naked.
Line up cars and trains for the "Car Show"
And Cole lined up the fridge magnetics for a "house"
Yes they are OCD like me :)
Cole made a super sweet picture and letter for my bosses
Thanking them for his Birthday Party
I sent some gifts with the picture.
My boss sent me these cute pics:
The loot pic .. lol
And yummy fruit Salad with the bunny marshmallows I sent.
Look even the Monkey Bank I sent is making an appearance.
I had the chance to meet up with my good friend Laurie
We met on the last night of Business Week my Junior Yr in H.S.
We've been friends since, we don't get to see each other that often.
Note to self taking a picture of yourself wasn't the cutest pose.
And of course a recipe!
I made these for the neighbors, don't they look cute!
A great idea for Easter.

Easter Nest Cookies

  1. Those cookies are so cute!

    Glad you got to see your friend Laurie; it's fun to see your then-and-now pictures. My best friend from school now lives two time zones away, so we've only seen each other once in 15 years. I'm so glad for email!

    Can you get health insurance through COBRA? I know it's still expensive, but maybe better than buying on the open market. Or, if you're in any associations, there may be opportunities to save. Or ... I don't know much about these, but how about a cost-sharing group like Medi-Share.org? I don't know anyone who's in it, but I've heard of similar programs, as well.

  2. Your weekend still sounds busy to me! LOL! I don't know how you work the hours you do and still get up workout and go to church. (Coffee right? LOL)

    Caden is so cute lining up all his cars. Blake does the same thing, but puts them side by side. Oh and him and Cole sleeping together-adorable!

    It's so nice to get together with old friends, isn't it? I've been seeing old friends from high school and it's crazy how so much has changed.

    LOVE the cookies! I may have to make some with the kiddos...if I remember to get the ingredients-LOL!

  10. Praying for Rick. Just love the boys sleeping ~ so sweet. You know my son would do things like your boys yet my daughter is the one with OCD! What a sweet note he wrote :) Nothing like meeting a friend dinner. Those cookies look cute and I have stuff to make them.
    I think I will. I am also going to use a lamb cake pan I have but make rice a rice krispies lamb. We are actually having ice cream for dessert because we are also celebrating our son's best girl birthday and she wants ice cream.

  13. How fun to meet up with old friends...and girl I am so impressed with your workout dedication. That's NOT to say that I didn't think you could do it...I'm just envious.

    Thank goodness you have an outlet for the stress. If anything that would get me pounding to the gym.

    Your Easter Nest cookies looked so yummy!! And the boys, they are just so much fun (yeah, I know thats because i don't live with them). I want a red bedroom!!!
