It's finally done...the long-anticipated "Emma and Daddy designed" swing set! Doesn't it look awesome?! I think they did a fabulous job of creating something that would fit in such a small space, and yet look at how big it is!
I have blogged about these before, but until last week I had never actually made a muffin tin lunch. One day I was feeling worse than usual and Emma was sad about having to stay home all afternoon, so I thought a fun lunch was in order. Ya know what?! It worked! She loved it! I always thought these cutesy lunches wouldn't be enough food for my big eater, but halfway through she said, "This is a lot of food."
I have two very exciting things to look forward to this week. My oldest brother Scotty and my Dad are coming to visit us this afternoon. I haven't seen this brother since February when he left for a year-long mission in Afghanistan. He is home for three weeks on vacation and today will be my first chance to see him!
And my other brother Tomy, who lives in Tulsa, will be flying in Thursday with his girlfriend Mendy and they will come by and spend the day with us (along with my sweet mom)! I haven't seen Tomy since June ~ when Emma and I flew out to visit him.
(**Just an aside** It's funny but my parents always seem to be on such different schedules. Getting them here at the same time is always a major challenge! As you can see, it probably won't happen this week either.)
So I am excited about this week and trying to focus on these fun things instead of the morning sickness. Of course I also am hoping to have a baby this week, but that is yet to be determined.
