Today has been a fun and busy day for us. This weekend, I'm throwing a baby shower for a friend so, today I'm busy cooking up some treats for the shower. This morning, the kids and I hung around the house while I made some peach pie pockets for the shower (the A is for her baby-to-be's name).
A little later in the morning, we headed to McDonald's for a playdate with our MOPS group. To be honest, we've never gone and played at McDonald's before. I guess Judah hasn't been old enough for very long so, we just haven't done that yet. It ended up being a really fun time though! Lots of ladies and kids showed up and the kids had a great time playing. Judah tends to be on the shy side so, I told him that he could go play and that I'd watch him and wave at him as he was playing. It totally blessed me to see him playing and then see him look at me and we'd wave at each other. Paisley enjoyed her fries and then she wanted to get down! down! down! That's when the chase began. The girl is 16 months but, she thinks she's like 8. She wants to keep up with the big kids and I'm worried about her getting trampled. So, it was a little challenging keeping track of her and also keeping track of Judah. Sometimes I wish I was one of those super laid back moms that could just sit and sip her coffee while her children are out running like crazy. But, that's not me so, it was busy and just slightly overwhelming for me to keep track of them. The funny thing is that at this point, there's really no light at the end of the tunnel. Just when they're old enough to be more independent, we'll most likely have another one for me to try and keep track of. So it goes!
After I got them down for their naps, I started the Rolo Cookies for the baby shower. I found this recipe on Chef in Traning and they really do look like a little piece of heaven. A little over two weeks ago, I gave up sugar....of course not forever but, for quite awhile. Well, let me tell you.....these cookies have been the biggest, most chocolaty, chewy, best smelling temptation yet. I literally texted my sister while making them "it's terribly hard to not eat sugar when making rollo cookies but, I won't!! Tell me I'm doing a well. Help! :)" Yes, that was my text, word for word. She wrote me back but, not for like a half hour. I ended up not eating them but, it was hard. Like, really hard.
For the rest of the day, I have more baby shower preparations to do, a check book to balance and other normal life stuff to take care of. It's almost the weekend, hooray! Happy Friday!
