The Approaching Holidays

Last night Trevor and I were able to go on our date night thanks to the kindness of Toni and Brian Steen and my parents. The steens babysat and my parents treated us to dinner. Trevor and I went to our, well my, favorite restaurant...Spagetti Factory! It's not a fancy place, but you can't beat the price for what you get. Afterwards we went shopping for Kya's stocking and we also had dessert with the Steens. We had so much fun laughing and talking with them! Brian told us about this soda "Jones Soda" that makes crazy sodas for the holidays. For example, they have flavors like Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, and fruit salad! Can you imagine? He says they make other quality drinks, but these are supposed to be just gross! I want to try one to just see...

Today MOPS was so great! We had a speaker come and talk about talking to your kids about sex. We made cookies in a jar for our craft and had such a great time!! It was our tables turn to bring food and drinks. I brought "haystacks" and fruit, and Alicia brought apple french toast strada with apple syrup and pumpkin pie tarts. So, yummy! I ate way too much!

This afternoon has been more of a challenge. Kya, again, did not sleep very long, which leaves longer expanses of time where she wants to play and she wants to do most of it with me! which i love, but it gets exhausting day after day trying to think of just the right thing to entertain her. Her toys don't seem to be lasting as long as they used to, and the video you can only do so many times in a day...so, after reading to her and playing with her, i a pooped!!!! If nyone has an alternative ideas, let me know!
