As nice as it is to go away on vacation, it is soooo much nicer to be back home. My heart is definitely here. We had a great time visiting Grandma Marge in Iowa. We did get to go to the zoos in Kansas City, MO, and Des Moines, IA. We had a wonderful time. We DID get snow on Saturday... 3-5 inches! I'm definitely not cut out for living in that part of the country.
The first full day we were at Grandma's, Emily made a funny. I cooked bacon and scrambled eggs for breakfast. B/c Aunt Charity does a lot of things old fashioned, I poured the bacon grease in a jar, but left the bacon drippings to season the eggs. Emi asked how I cooked eggs. I told her that I cracked the eggs and stirred them up. Her reply was, "And then you burn them?" LOL Does wonders for the confidence in my cooking skills!
Jacob bought a pack of plastic frogs at the Kansas City Zoo. That night Emi had a brilliant idea... "Hey Jacob, how 'bout we share these frogs?" JJ's reply, "How 'bout you put them down and I will get them. How 'bout that?!" Oh my goodness, we all had a good laugh at that one. He is such a stinker.
Luke now thinks that he should sleep w/ me and Mike each night. Thank you Mike! Daddy doesn't think he should cry himself to sleep. Hmmmm.... didn't seem to bother him w/ the others. I am determined to reclaim my bed!
