Breakfast in Bed

Trey was out of town for several (read: whippin') days and we've been crazy busy. We've had games, birthday parties, Bike-a-Thons, ACT tests, work, school, end of season parties, and trips to Sonic for a Route 44. They were all totally necessary but driving them all single handedly has worn me out.

We (I) slept in this morning then my precious children brought me breakfast in bed. Mini-bagels with American cheese, and unsweetened iced tea. EXACTLY what I would have ordered. EXACTLY.

They ate almost all of my breakfast and then Sadie brought me the bill. While I was thinking, "I'm being charged for this?", Sadie asked, "How much are you going to tip us, Mommy? Can you give us each five dollars?"

Generosity abounds at the Hill house.

Sadie actually didn't eat any of my breakfast. Apparently, while she was helping cook, she found a gummy worm under the microwave and ate it so she was all good.

Graham, in anticipation of his daddy coming home asked if he could decorate the house with string. They've done this before and literally every chair, table, and lamp is attached to each other with string. I'm pretty sure it's not exactly the welcome home Trey would hope for.

Instead, we TiVo'd the Cowboy game and had it all ready for his watching pleasure when he walked through the door.

I'm not sure I've ever been more glad to see his face.

On another note, I did find one picture of my prom date and I in all our crowned glory but can't figure out how to get in onto the computer. I keep rubbing the picture on the screen but nothing happens. Any suggestions?

You could take a picture of the picture with your camera. By the way, I love your blog..I go to a church where we bus in homeless and inner-city kids and it is awesome but I can't imagine living in the hood like you do. It sounds like God is using you all in an awesome way.

sometimes the rubbing works but I sometimes use a scanner it not keep rubbing.:)
isn't it great when your man(not really yours but our own man:)) comes home from being gone.

I just had to take a picture of our wedding pictures. It worked out pretty well.

I love your blog and what you are doing for the community. I am pretty sure you should have your own reality show!

Know you're looking forward to having Dad home! I hate to balance it all by myself, as well. But alas, it's football season!
No scanner? Isn't that a crime? :-)

michael and I got raw oats soaked in a bit of milk topped with frozen blueberries in bed yesterday! I felt a bit equine for the rest of the day. Was never so glad to make my own bowl of oatmeal this morning!

Five bucks for bagels and cheese seems a bit low to me. Breakfast of champions indeed!

Decorating with string--so funny. Guess you should be glad he's not into duct tape yet!
