The last couple of weeks...
Since it has been so long since I last posted I thought I would put up some pictures of just a few things that have been going on the last couple of weeks. I have been busy working on some projects so my blog has been neglected. So here is just a little sampling of what has been going on and I promise there is more to come! :)
This first little set of pictures are of my kitty Rosie. One of her new things is jumping into the laundry basket if I keep the laundry closet door open. The first time she did it I was in the living room and I heard a noise come from the laundry closet. I didn't think anything of it at the time so I didn't bother look. So a little while later I went to go fold the laundry and there was Rosie all nestled on top of the clean laundry. I felt bad kicking her off because she looked so comfortable but there is something about the cat lying on the clean clothes that doesn't seem so clean. Another one of her little antics she has started is playing in the toilet water. The other day I heard this little sound of splashing coming from the bathroom. I went to look and there she was perched on the edge of the toilet seat batting at the water! It was very funny but also making a huge mess of toilet water so now we have to remember to put the lid down so she doesn't play in the toilet! :)
Also one day 5 of us girls went on base at Fort Lewis and went for a walk around the airfield. Our friends Mary and Deborah Riley live on base. There dad is a Chaplain and deployed to Iraq right now with the Stryker Brigade. Hannah brought along little Gabriel. When we started walking the sun was shining, then dark clouds moved in and it started to dump snow! The pictures really don't show how heavy the snow was falling. We had so much fun! And then when we finished the 4 mile walk the sun was back out and shining.
A couple weeks ago I got an e-mail from Michele Schneidler (the lady I used to Nanny for) that she needed a baby-sitter for the boys a couple days a week just in the mornings while she does some consulting work for the company she used to work for. Of course I said yes! I really missed Isaac and Gabe and couldn't wait to see them. This last February was three years since I started to first Nanny for them. When I first started Isaac was only one and Gabe was not born yet. I got to watch him grow up to the handsome little four year old he is now. Gabe came to live with them over a year ago when he was 9 months. Now he is two and talking up a storm. They are so much fun to be around! I took my camera the first day I babysat and took some pictures of the boys and their new puppy Magi. She is a full bred Golden Retriever and is so sweet. The boys absolutely love her. I think it is so wonderful they will get to grow up with a wonderful dog like her. We had a little black lab growing up named Sadie and she had the same temperament as Magi. I guess Labs and Retrievers have the sweetest and friendliest personalities! :)
And the last picture is of Liesal and I during song time in Jr. Church on Sunday morning. I am teaching Jr. Church for the month of March. The first lesson I taught was on our individual talents. We talked about some of the things we are good at. I talked about how all our talents are gifts from the Lord. And since he blessed us with them we need to use them for Him.
