Our day

Dear Miah,
Here is how our day went. I'm sure your day was very different from ours.

We were out early today. I took the boys and girl to eat donuts. They knew what to order because you have taught them well. We ate and drank milk & apple juice and after our sugar-high we were off to the bank to deposit your check, then stopped by Target and then home.

It was 10 a.m. when we were in the house. We relaxed, Paloma napped, Jonas and Angus ate lunch. Jonas played some games on the computer. It was only for about 1/2 an hour, so don't worry it wasn't long. I tried to put Angy down for his nap but it didn't work out. I think I fell asleep for about 10 minutes.

We were bored and I asked them what they wanted to do. We couldn't visit my mom and dad because my mom is sick. My poor mom keeps getting sick.

We decided to go to the museum. Jonas took 4 dollars out of Hamm to buy something at the gift shop. Stuff there is so expensive. I saw the butterfly growing garden for $26. What a rip! He bought a little caterpillar that you wind up and walks. It isn't anything big, but he was happy he bought it with his own money.

We played for about an hour and then it was time to go. Angus was asleep for most of the time. Paloma was in my arms the whole time. I hope my arms get a little more muscle and a little less fat by carrying her.

On the way home, Jonas kept talking about his butterflies and how he hoped his caterpillars would be delivered. (He hasn't stopped talking about them since you left.) I was telling him it may take a few more days to get here since we ordered them on Tuesday. You know the talk. And guess what? They were here!

He was excited. He wanted to call you, but I told him we would wait to tell you until you called us.

They watched Lilo and Stitch, had dinner and then we played outside.

This is what we were doing outside:

I forgot to mention that Lulu is staying with us. I also separated the laundry. I've got a lot of washing to do! Wish you were here to help. Also, Lulu has destroyed a part of our garden. I was very upset about this! We now have three sunflowers left. Ugh!

After all our backyard fun, it was bath time. I had all THREE babies in the tub. The boys were getting too wild so I took Paloma out. The boys brushed their teeth. We had to bribe Angus to brush his. Jonas let him hold the caterpillar container and then he let me brush. Bribery works. Paloma fell asleep first. Then, after four books, or was it five? I can't remember. They fell asleep and here I am typing this, wishing you were here! Once 5 o'clock rolls around, we usually look forward to seeing you, knowing daddy is coming home. It's been hard knowing you aren't going to walk in and you've only been gone 3 days.

Well, can't wait to hear about your day.

We miss you loads!

Love you,
