I've had lots of time to contemplate the meaning of life this week. I've also counted all the designs in the ceilings a few times too. Somehow I managed to throw my back out, so I have been spending a lot of time laying on the floor with a pack of frozen carrots on my back. Gee, I can't imagine how I could have hurt my back, could it be from lugging these three lightweights around?
While I was laying there, feeling sorry for myself, I got a package in the mail! All the way from Iceland!!!! Thank you so much Dagbjört! You made my day! Look at all this cool stuff!
Dagbjört's mom works in the sock factory that made these socks.
Magnets!!!! What a beautiful place Iceland is!
Yummy lollipops with the Iceland flag.
Chocolate that is already long gone (I only shared a little bit!)
What a great lunch! I was so excited, I even managed to stand up.
Dagbjört even sent me this Icelandic fish oil. Victoria will probably be a genius from taking it by next week.
After the excitement died down, I still had to figure out how to entertain everyone from a prone position. I am lucky that my kids are so easy to please. No fancy, fruity popsicles for them. They are ecstatic over frozen ice.
Victoria kept herself busy with a towel.
Oh yea, peek a boo rocks! She had gotten really loud when she laughs. I'm so glad she has finally found her voice
For dinner, uh, I mean dessert, we had ice cream and root beer floats.
Catherine pretty much wakes up in the morning and puts on her bathing suit, whether we are going to the pool or not.
Whip cream is kind of healthy, right?
Things were all cheery until I put a dollop of whip cream in Francesca's dish. This is a kid that will eat a raw onions, but the whip cream threw her into a state of hysteria.
She was literally cringing in fear.
I made the mistake of moving her dish a centimeter closer to her. She totally panicked
At least everyone else had a good time.
That's the good thing about living in a big family, sometimes you just have to learn to get over things.
Victoria is having her EEG tomorrow morning. I'm really hoping that she isn't having seizures Please say a prayer for her!
