It’s been a crazy busy few weeks around here. . . . My parents came into town to celebrate T.’s graduation from Creighton with his MBA!! Sophia’s baptism with T.’s parents and with my parents along with T.’s birthday and Mother’s Day! It was a crazy four days in a row, with house guests, graduation dinners, birthday cakes and baptism brunches to host and make and I’ve spent the past week recuperating! Phew! Looking forward to getting back to normal blogging soon! What have you been up to?
It’s been a busy three weeks around here. . . We had a baby. We discovered the mullberries were ripe. We had a first hair cut and now his curls are gone, but his handsome face is much more apparent! We made strawberry mint jam and strawberry lemon marmalade. And enjoyed our first s’mores . . . (evidently, pre-haircut) And some pretty mean smoked ribs.

What a blessing!
