It's been quite the weekend - from making dozens and dozens of cookies to a wonderful dinner with friends to a heartbreaking Superbowl loss.
Titus was running a fever yesterday but it was very short-lived and he seems fine other than the fact that he is teething and therefore, not sleeping well and feeling a little grumpy. Ah well, the joys of toddlerhood. :)
I'm still enjoying cookies, so I think that's a good sign... 31 dozen have been ordered and an additional 350 have been made for the local private highschool. I'm still taking orders! It's been such a blessing to see the support for this trip that we know God has called me to! I'm amazed and again, humbled. I'm getting closer and closer to my goal but still have a little way to go - you can check out Two Hearts for Hope or Heather's Etsy Store for other ways to contribute! I also very much ask for your prayers as we prepare to go - I have contemplated how emotional this trip will be and I know that despite being there before, I won't be fully prepared.
Through frustrating circumstances that I won't bore you with the details of, I had to get a new passport. I'm praying that it arrives this week or early next week at the latest. I will be incredibly relieved to have it in hand and then it will be off for my travel visa!
We enjoyed having 15 or so people here last night for a superbowl party. There was plenty of good food and drink which did NOT make up for the loss. :) The tenor of the party significantly changed with the interception and resulting TD. Yeah, not good. My little sister pointed out that the Saints had not won before so it was their turn - a comment which nearly got her kicked out as there were cries of, "Too soon, M!" :) We love her anyway. And we did still have a good time...
This week will be a bit slower - especially after tomorrow. We are due to have more snow tonight through Wednesday (5-9") - I'm hoping school will not be cancelled tomorrow as I have much to do!
