I made several purchases at Ikea when we were there over the weekend. My top two favorite:
This crazy cool bird platter.
And a red highchair for Amon. We’ve actually never had a highchair for any of the wee Kelleys. We always had one of those little seats that just strapped to a chair. Shockingly we still had the one that all three of our kiddos used, but sadly, we have a major ant problem in our house…it’s war…human Vs ant kind of war…and we found the seat completely covered in ants. We decided it was time to move on.
The boys went to the dentist for the first time yesterday. They both marched back all by themselves and proceeded to rock that dentist chair. And no cavities. I did find dental floss all over our house the rest of the day and the boys brushed their teeth approximately 1,136 times yesterday.
We got the sweetest package of goodies in the mail when we arrived home on Sunday. It was full of fun surprises including these super cool sunglasses for all 4 of the wee Kelleys. Thank you so much Alisa. And check our Alisa’s blog and join me in big, bold prayers for her husband Eric.
I also got these sweet shoes in the mail from my best friend Ashley. Be still my heart. She knows me so well and has great taste. Love you completely Ashley and miss you like crazy.
I made Caramel Brownie Cheesecake last night to share with a sweet family! I taste tested it this morning before 8am…it was a little rich, but then Courtney pointed out that it WAS before 8am…maybe that had something to do with the richness. She was right. I taste tested again after lunch. Pretty tasty. And I’ve never made homemade caramel sauce before, but the one in this recipe is seriously good. Only took me 2 tries…the first batch looked like yummy caramel sauce, but tasted like burnt crap. For real. It was terrible. Second time was a charm. Delicious.
Thank you so much for all the ace of hearts that have been arriving in the mail and showing up on our door step. So, so thankful for your generosity and big love. If you sent some of those sweet ace of hearts our way, I made you a key fob today. They will be in the mail this afternoon and on their way to your mailbox for a happy Thank You!
And speaking of Ace of Hearts…it has been far, far too long since I held and kissed and hugged and squeezed our little Ace of Hearts. Oh man! Still praying big, bold prayers. God is so big and so so good. I believe it.
