A Little Sunday Night Blurb

Before I get back into summer catch up, I figured I'd blog about the haps now while we're currently watching the Steelers game.  It's truthfully a pretty boring one. After a disappointing Arizona State loss at the end of the game last night and an exciting Cardinals win over the Patriots today, this game isn't holding my interest much. 

It's almost time for Lily to go to bed, but she's sitting next to me doing flashcards on my phone.  Because of those flashcards, she insists that the box of corn muffins in the cabinet has a picture of mangos on it and will be sure to let you know she is right and you are not.  I love listening to her say new words all the time and this week my favorite thing she says is, "Thank you so mush, Mom."   I've got a whole list I've been keeping to share soon.  I lovelovelove language development. Andrew said to me the other day, "Lily is the funniest person I've ever met, Mom."  That pretty much sums up how much we are all enjoying her personality and language right now.

Andrew's been super busy with hockey, school and band and has officially decided that he wants to join marching band next year when he can. He had the game winning goal in overtime during his hockey game the other night! He also had the assist to tie the game in the last 4 seconds to GET to overtime.
After his game winning the genuine look of pride and happiness!

 I love this shot!! He's #77 in maroon and gold trying to get out of the line of fire on his opponent {and friend's} slapshot

Reagan's been doing well with school and her new custody schedule and starts with Brownies this week both her meeting and their first event. She's excited!

Tomorrow I have a giveaway for locals, so be sure to check back! It's a goodie, but a short one too!

George has been working a lot, so we don't take our time home together forgranted. We miss him...
Today is my parents' 40th wedding anniversary. They spent 22 1/2 years married together on earth. I asked my mom if she felt old enough to be married for 40 years, she said yes then asked me if I didn't feel old enough for them to be. I don't.    Today is also my Oma's birthday. She would be 98.  She and my dad both died in the spring of 1995, four weeks apart. I sure hope they celebrated today!!

It took me nearly 2 and a half interrupted hours to write this.

Happy Sunday!
