Project 365 (#286 - #292)

Sunday ~ #286/365

Extreme rain for 24 hours (or about that) left the church parking lot flooded!
It was so bad someone brought a pump to make the parking lot more accesible. The water was all the way over the sidewalk and into the grass on this end just earlier in the day. We took advantage of the rather large puddle after church and had paper boat races. Yohn threw in his plastic bowl just to prove his "boat" wouldn't sink like the rest of ours.

Monday ~ #287/365

Cooler temps mean soup for dinner. Although I load mine up so I don't know if it really classifies as soup once I'm done cooking it.

Tuesday ~ #288/365

We received a cute Christmas drawing from our "oldest child". :)

Wednesday ~ #289/365

My mom gave us all Snoopy Christmas T-shirts!

Thursday ~ #290/365

I get to be home with the kids for four days straight!
Bethany asked for her picture to be taken in the midst of the Christmas stuffed animals we have on our couch. I think a few of her own made it in there too.

Friday ~ #291/365

New Christmas PJ's!

Saturday ~ #292/365

Christmas morning! Think they were excited?

Aww! What a great week! And the kids got a Wii for Christmas. Good luck getting your tv back... that's all I have to say about that!

The rain killed my phone last week and I ended up buying a new one. I disliked the rain this time around!

Sorry I've been MIA lately. They blocked blogger at work, which is where I got most of my blog reading/commenting done and I do very little on the computer at home anymore. :( Worst blogger EVER!

We call that kind of soup "stoup" - not quite stew, not quite soup - 100% yum!
