Great Two Weeks!

Hey Everyone! No blog last weekend because we took a little road trip up to the cousins in PA. Gramma and Grampa met us there! We took Mouse along, because he likes to travel and pose in pictures. He is very helpful getting everyone to move along! here we all are in the car...



This is the view just before pulling into the cousin's neighborhood. Sadly, I was not quick enough to get any pictures of the horse & carraiges that we passed (Amish country). See? Doesn't Mouse make this slightly more interesting than the 56ooth picture of snow you've seen?
Here's L (I'm changing the names we use. Out of the need to do something different) with his oldest cousin B. And Mouse of course.
Gramma and M. Open shut, open shut. That's what all these hinges are for, isn't it? Everyone got a big kick out of watching M "walk" on his knees.

Cousins B & P were great with M. Shared, watched out for him, and were just all-around gentle!
Uno Attack (I actually really enjoyed playing this with them!)!
I have no idea how they got all four of them to line up here with Gramma. My boys are not into the "Go sit over there and smile." Maybe it was a case of monkey-see-monkey-do.
Kids at the kid table. In case you're wondering, the monkey-see&do thing did not work in the food arena. Sadly. Whelp! Moving on!
We had a great time at the cousins house! Joyfully, A.

Hope y'all can see this!

LB started to try the walking thing, but discovered this technique was easier to master. Too funny, isn't it? Anyways, we've had a great week! My book was officially released Tuesday, and it's starting to show up on more and more internet bookshops. Valentine's Day was sweet - Hubby got me roses, then left tulips and bottled Fraps (cold coffee) in my car.

BB ate lunch with the 3's class after Bible Time, and Hubby and LB and I had a lunch date!

And I spent a bunch of Friday trying to coordinate with teachers and media specialists for my upcoming visit to Ft. Pierce. I'm really excited about going to the schools and talking with the kids about writing and reading. One of the media specialist is going to do a Reader's Theatre and let the kids act out my excerpt from the book's website! That'll be something fun for them to do beforehand, and it'll be awesome to watch it come to life....

Anyways, hope the video works. If it doesn't, then I won't do that again. No pictures hoping that it won't take any longer to load!

Quick Week...

This week has FLOWN by! LB's standing all the time, and looked like he was going to start walking, but suddenly decide to walk on his knees! He has been cracking me up!

LB was using a spoon, but then I turned around and he had grabbed the cup and decided to use his hands (which actually works rather well).

The next three are all the boys goofing off together - BB was hugging and kissing LB, and trying to tackle him, and wrap him up. I mean, isn't that why Mommy had him, so I could play with him?



This week is also the official release for The Pillar of Light, and I'm really excited abou that! I've started a website for the books, so I can give people an easy way to find it. It's only a few pages now, but I like it so far.

So go to http://www.altravis.webs.com/ and check it out! Bookmark it and send the page to anyone you think might be interested! They can read a bit from chapter one and even order the book there!

Have a great week everyone!

Fun Time with Nana!

Is this not the best photo of all time?

Nana and the boys went to the Fractured Prune and had some donuts! They had a great time while Mommy ran to Bible Time and then came back to pick them up!

Snuggle Time! BB actually sat with Nana quite a lot!

Creative time (LB has to be sleeping for the playdoh to come out!)

Oh, and I finally finished Peter and Tink (not shown), while Nana distracted the boys!
