i began the new year at church with carly and a bunch of her friends. they had a "lock-in" and had to be picked up at 12:01am. cassi jo was bound and determined to stay up so she could go with me to pick carly up. she is fascinated by "the middle of the night".
we arrived just in time to ring in the new year with a glass of grape juice. we were in our jammies and decided that might embarrass carly a tad so we went to the car while they cleaned up. i think they had a good time...carly came out smiling from ear to ear. i am sure it helped that jake was there to make her smile too. ;o)
cassidy and i were up fairly early this morning and decided to go to walmart to get our grocery shopping done. our cupboards were very bare and now they are chock full of goodies. the freezer is over flowing and fruits abound in the fruit bowl. mmmmmmm!! our healthy eating has begun. now if we can just get moving!!
right now i am paying for that late night/early rise. my eyes are very heavy and i know if i stop i will doze off. i must hold out a few more hours.
right now we are off to dazzler's house to deliver a cake. she has 4 extra children at her house and has put out a distress call for some travelling cuisine. well UJ calls me the Queen of Travelling Cuisine so this was just up my alley don't you know? Yellow butter recipe cake with chocolate icing is what UJ chose for them. it is whipped up and cooling as i type. mmmmmmchocolate!!
