PJs and pancakes

Today has been great! The weather has been rainy and kind of dreary...perfect for hanging out around the house in your pjs. So, that's exactly what we did! LOVE IT! I made the fam heart-shaped pancakes for Valentine's Day and after breakfast gave the kids some Valentine treats. I'm not sure Luke thought coloring books, markers and stickers were such a great treat, but Carleigh was excited! They sure did have fun coloring while we all stayed inside today though. Carleigh made us some really sweet cards. She is such a good big sister. Tonight she laid on the couch with a fussy little sister, and tried to comfort Em while I ate dinner. Kelvin is a little incapacitated today, so I appreciated her help.

A couple of random thoughts...
if any of you struggle with diabetes and limit your sugar and carb intake, I would love to hear some of your favorite recipes, especially for breakfast. I am trying to be very diligent about following the midwife's suggestion until I have my second three hour glucose test, and steer clear of the carbs and sugar. The last thing I need is for me to be sick or have a sick baby. I think our hands are pretty full now. I don't think I'll do anything to add to the madness! ;)

Next random thought...
we are trying to sell our Toyota Prius if anyone is interested. It's a great car. I wish we could keep it, but it will only fit 3 car seats in the back, and we'll need 4 in just a matter of weeks. Unfortunately, it's not very feasible for us to have three cars. So, shoot me an email if you would like some information or know anyone who might.

Also, I have posted another update about the benefit for Emma...Emma's Bayou Bash. Click here to go to the post. It's such a blessing to see how many people are volunteering their time to make this event a success.

Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. I've been wanting a Prius, but my husband doesn't. I'll have to see if I could sway him - he drives truck to TX once or twice a week so he could just DROP ME OFF!!! How perfect is that? Color and year?

    I bet you'll sell it pretty easily since they are a very popular car.

  2. Happy Heart Day to you and your family! It sounds like you spent the day well, (besides a fussy child, your husband not feeling well and you not being able to eat carbs on Valentine's Day!) You poor thing, but seriously pancakes and pjs sound like the perfect day! Hope you are able to sell your car soon!

  3. Sounds like you had a great day!

    Pancake Tuesday is coming's a real holiday...look it up! It also happens to be pajama day at school for spirit week that day. I cannot wait for our pancake pj day!! Yummy and fun all rolled into one...what could be better??!!

    ARe you going to retreat or is that close to the due date? I'll be there!


Thank you for stopping by. We love hearing from you. Blessings!
