shiny happy places...

The boys are back in school today!

(a shiny happy place!)

What a week it has been with all 4 kids home, especially since we have been cooped up most of the time. Ryan took them out sledding one night, he's such a good Dad :) They bundled up about once a day and went out for 45 minutes or so, and then came in to drink hot chocolate. We have played lots of video games, watched lots of movies, eaten lots of popcorn... basically just vegged out for a few days :)

I did manage to squeeze in a bit of jewelry making during rest times, but it was HARD!

I also managed to catch the cold that has been circulating our house.

I love this picture of Tessa, it looks like her shiny happy place...

The "love" winner, which was randomly picked by the random number generator, is #11 Brooke! Email me Brooke!

See that little teaser over there --------------->

You may have to scroll up a bit. It has the green leaf on it.

Be sure and check back on Tuesday to see what that is all about! It's gonna be good :)

Here's a little sneak peek...

and more to come, so please check back Tuesday!

One of my girlfriends called last night, she has 4 kids who have been home all week also, and she says, "I need to get out of the house, wanna see a movie?" So we saw "Bride Wars" last night, very cute :) See it with a girlfriend, not a guy!

Plus we got to miss bedtime, came home to sleeping kids, mega bonus!

Today I have plans to clean the house and then us girls are gonna paint our toenails :)

What are some of your shiny happy places? I'd love to hear :)

Have a fun Friday!

I agree, bedtime is a shiny happy place, especially if I get to sleep myself, that's always nice. LOL I hope you have a great time back in your schedule and I am DYING to see the new leaf thing.... you tease!
