Saturday we decorated the tree and Brian set up a train. This is a train his grandfather gave him in middle school. He hasn’t set it up since then, he was soooo excited to set it up around the tree. The boys absolutely love it. A couple blocks away there’s a bike shop that has a huge train display. It has over a mile of tracks with several levels and lots of trains and cars going at once. It is really awesome. We’ve been over there several times and I’m sure we’ll go visit a dozen more times before it is taken down—it is free!! Because of all these trains, they have been extremely keen on trains.
Sunday was really busy. Kip and Blaine were at our church and there was a missions committee meeting after church, so we went to that and then got in line to talk with them. So–we were there for several hours. It was also Jason’s birthday, so I dropped the boys off at Mom and Tony’s right after church for a nap. It was great to have conversations without interruption back at church for the meetings . We found out we will probably be going to Costa Rica for language school, sounds good. Then we went to Mom and Tony’s for Jason’s party–I was there for an hour and then went back up to church for a practice for the children’s program with Malachi. He still won’t stand on stage with all the other kids. I really wanted him to do this–I thought he’d love doing it. There’s one more practice and Saturday night is the program, so we’ll see.
I had some funny stories of my kids—I totally can’t remember any of them right now, I have the fried momma brain syndrome at the moment.
