Bits of Heaven

This is a raspberry filling cream cheese icing donut. YUM! Oh, my mouth waters just thinking about how scrumptious it is. I got them from Walmart, but they don't make them all the time. (Otherwise, I'd be buying them all the time.)

And how cute is this note that Jakob wrote to me and Pete? I think it's pretty clear-cut, so I won't translate, though I will explain that this week Jakob is the star student in his class, where he makes a poster about himself, and gets to bring something for show-and-tell.

Also, I've been actually accomplishing things on my "to-do" list. Like, actual projects. For instance, I wrapped all my Christmas gifts yesterday. Of course, then I had to hide them because the kids kept trying to sneak peeks in the ones in bags. So they won't be under the tree until, oh, probably Christmas Eve night, I imagine.

I also made these little window hangy things. Sure, it's a project that little kids could probably do, but I did 'em! And they're pretty cute. The gingerbread man looks like he has a sweat band on his head instead of frosting, but I'm okay with that. More things keep getting added on to the "to-do" list, but it's mostly things to go to rather than things to just do. It's nice to be able to actually cross stuff off.

Troy has done tremendously with potty training. He takes himself, and really doesn't care anymore about stickers or treats for going-he just likes to be able to go. I think I'm ready to move him to the real Big Boy undies.

Also, I have Coke. Ah, heaven in a bottle.

What have been your bits of heaven lately?

That doughnut looks delicious! Congrats to Troy for getting on the potty train. Very exciting. I am enjoying the fact that after tonight all my shopping will be done! Just in time for the kiddos to be let out of school tomorrow afternoon- not to return until January.

Jeez, Amy's kids get out EARLY. Mine aren't off until Wednesday afternoon. But that's a good thing. You know, because of Dylan. Anywho, bits of heaven... Ummmmmm, hard to think of this time of year. I am truly turning into Scrooge/The Grinch. I made some cranberry muffins to go with dinner tonight that are to die for. They have the same texture as British scones. Yummmmm.

Every time I get craving something sweet, I log on and look at that donut picture. Having four little ones all day under the age of four is saving my waist line. I really want to go buy a dozen and eat 'em all!
