A whole lot of nothing

This post may be all over the place so bear with me here.
Let's back up to last Sunday and the Super Bowl.  We have had "Super Sunday" for several years now.  We have hot dogs and drinks and our Sr and Associate Minister team preach the sermon.  I missed the sermon this year cause I was in the toddler room buy the boys didn't miss out on their hot dogs.

Steve was at the IU game and didn't make it home till about an hour before the big game so we didn't really do anything to celebrate. I picked up some cupcakes at Jay C, although sadly they didn't bring us good luck. 

So many people were posting pictures on Facebook about the game and this was by far the funniest to me. I laughed for about 10 minutes. It's better to laugh about the outcome than cry.

Monday is where my week gets all cray cray.  No school Monday, out early Tuesday, no school Wednesday.  Oddly we were full schedule Thursday and Friday and others were on at least a delay.  I slid a few times Thursday morning but I just wanted my routine back. I've been okay with each and every delay and school closing, I've made the best of them and have had some fun.  Wednesday was breaking point. I was done.  There is just only so much you can in the winter that doesn't cost money.  At least in the summer we have the park, the pool, our zoo membership.  I was ready for the real Hulk and Captain America to come rescue me.

These are just a few thins I posted on Twitter this week.
Look at those eyelashes. I'm jealous of my 3 year old.

This almost makes my stomach hurt, longing for the days of the past. Levi, holding Maggie, Pierce, Cooper, and Hope. Cameron is still in the womb.  I'm gonna say June/July 2010.

I was all ready Thursday to get Cooper from school and head to the Y when I got a text from Christy (Luke's mom) saying she was taking Luke to the JJ basketball game and if we wanted to join them.  I made a quick change of plans and wore make up AND fixed my hair for the first time all week.

Cooper had a basketball game this morning and he made a basket!  So it was during halftime practice but it was a basket!  This may not seem like something to get excited about to most of you, but keep in mind this is hist first year.  He also has the skinniest little arms and that basketball is heavy to him.  His form is good and he just kept trying and trying all morning long, getting closer and closer to the rim and it finally went in.  He was so excited for himself. He is still reserved during the game, gets it from his momma, but that is getting better too.  He picks things up quick when he breaks out of that shell.  He is having fun and that is all that matters.

It looks to be a calm week so let's all pray for 5 days of school!
