A couple of weeks ago it was in the mid-70's here. We took advantage of the wonderful weather to take the kids to the zoo. I thought you might enjoy a couple of pictures of them that day. (Especially for you Mama).

Company Girl Coffee 2/20

Good evening Company Girls and others. I'm a little behind today in posting. It has been a very busy week at our house and while I thought today was going to be used to catch up on some things around here that has not happened since I have had a horrible headache all day.

This week was busy with our usual things; preschool, playdates, my work at the Y, and normal household chores. I was not great about the Small Things this week, wish I could have done better. Oh well, there is a time and season for everything.

On another Company Girl blog I saw her Gratitude Friday list and since I'm having one of those weeks in which I need to focus on my blessings instead of the day-to-day living here is mine.

1. A wonderful husband who is also my best friend.
2. A women's mini-retreat at my church next Friday night.
3. 3 fantastic kids
4. Jesus who died for my sins
5. A wonderful God who gives me many, many more blessings than I will ever deserve and who grants me grace everyday.
6. A part-time job that allows me to bring my kids to work with me while at the same time providing us with a fantastic preschool, extra income, and a membership to the YMCA.

I hope you each have a fantastic weekend. See you next week.

Company Girl Coffee 2/13

Good afternoon Company Girls and others.
It has been a very hectic week around here, although I'm not sure how unusual that is. I have picked up a few more hours at the Y for a couple of weeks, this helps with my paycheck, but not with keeping up around the house. Meaning I've pretty much skipped most of the "Small Things" this week, but I still love reading them everyday.
On Tuesday I dropped the boys off at preschool to get 5 minutes down the road and get a call from them. My 3 year old had developed a 101 degree fever in the 5 minutes I was gone. We still don't know what was wrong with him. I picked him up, brought him home and gave him a dose of children's Advil, within 30-45 minutes his fever was gone and has not returned. That was also his only symptom.
Thursday was a full day of Valentine's parties at the boys preschool. This was fun, but hectic, it's hard to divide your time between 2 kids parties at the same school and at the same time. Next year will be even more interesting as I will have 3 kids there, oh well, I'll cross that bridge next year.
We did get good news from our family in Oklahoma, they were not hurt in the tornado that struck this week. My aunt's neighbor lost an outbuilding when the tornado that hit Edmond touched down, but thankfully my aunt and uncle's house was not harmed, nor were my cousins' houses.
We are not doing much for Valentine's day as my husband feels the same as Rachel Anne's husband, and honestly who can afford a sitter for 3 kids and the cost of going out. I have requested dinner at home, in which I do not have to cook. That is one of my favorite presents for any occasion.
I hope everyone has a great weekend, and fun on Valentine's day whatever you do.
