What's up? Warning! Long post ahead!

I'm sure all 4 of you who read my blog have been wondering where I've been. Well, I don't really have a great excuse, but last week 3 members of our family had a stomach bug that left me constantly changing sheets, towels and clothes and running our washing machine non-stop. I told D. that our washing machine was just going to fall over from exhaustion. We are now back to our normal selves pushing each other around the house in the laundry basket for entertainment, thanks be to God! It was awful!
I also wanted to wait to post pics of my Valentine's garland and topiary I've been working on. Alas, I am not finished yet, but I didn't want to wait any longer. I will post pics when I get it finished. We are going to put Aubrey's valentines together today and I am going to work on my garland so hopefully I will finish today.

Aubrey's pre-school sang for us in church on Sunday. They were so cute, and Aubrey sang so well. Not with an abundance of enthusiasm, but he said he was nervous. So sweet.

You may know that we have a dog, Callie. The past 3 weeks Callie has been away at obedience school. I have had such a nice break. While I love Callie, she was not trained at all, and did a lot that made our lives a little difficult at times. We have visited her at the training center a few times, and the change in her is amazing! I am actually looking forward to her coming home. D. and I have to go for the next 3 nights to learn how to keep the training going once she comes home. Then we get to bring her home on Thursday. I'll keep you posted.

I thought I would show you what Mallory got into about a week ago. I was in the kitchen and she was in the laundry room. I didn't think anything of it until she walked in and I realized she had gotten into Aubrey's art supplies. I have no idea how she got them even on the backside of her jammies! I guess the apple doesn't fall very far from the tree!
