So today, Nathan cheerfully emptied out an entire brand-new box of Cheerios on the living room floor. I was not happy. In fact, I was the opposite of happy. Because even after vacuuming, I am STILL stepping on those darn things.
The frustrating part is that I as soon as I a saw him doing it, I said “No! No, Nathan!” And you know what he did? He looked right at me and continued dumping it! My sweet, sweet little two-year-old totally has his impish moments for sure.
Yesterday, as I’m sure most of you have heard on the news, the South was ravaged by terrible storms. We haven’t seen weather like this with this scale of damage in a long time… some of us have never seen it. Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas, and every state that was hit with the terrible storms the past couple days are all in my prayers.
We made it out completely unscathed and fine. Our house has no damage, and neither do our cars. Some of my friends in the surrounding areas, on the other hand, did not fare so well. Many of their houses sustained severe damage to roofs and shutters, windows were broken out, they have flood damage, and their cars look like Swiss cheese from golf-ball sized hail. Please keep everyone in your prayers and if there is anything you can do to help my neighbors in the Southern states, like donate to the Red Cross, please don’t hesitate to do so.
Here they are, the Easter pictures I promised! Since I have so many, I’m doing them in two parts. The first part is the Easter Egg hunt with me helping Nathan find the eggs and Paul taking the pictures. (Since I am doing so great on my weight loss, I don’t mind having my picture taken anymore!)
