Yesterday we received some sweet surprises. The first being my cool new sandals with arch supports for my flat feet and plantar fasciitis. No more achy feet!
The second was a beautiful gesture of goodwill from Ethan's teacher, Ms. Danielle. She brought us dinner from Pat and Oscar's, one of our favorite local restaurants. She brought enough food to feed us for a few nights!! She had heard about everything that we have been going through with the family and our kids and wanted to do something to help out. Thank you so much, it definitely won't go to waste! We are so fortunate to have her as Ethan's teacher and as a friend.
The third was a decadent bucket cake for Mark's bday on Friday, directly from the Queen of Cakes, Mama Skates. We couldn't quite wait until Friday, so we decided to break in to it last night. We figured it would take us days to eat it, so with perishable food, there's no time like the present!! At least, that was our excuse.
It tastes as if it were delivered on a cloud straight from heaven's bakery. We enjoyed it thoroughly. Kaylee was the only one of the kids that was able to enjoy it last night, since Ethan had fallen asleep on the floor and Javi was at dad's. We got some cute video of her. Notice how she kicks her feet in anticipation of the next bite! We love you Mama and thank you so much for the cake.
We are so fortunate to have all of the supportive family and friends surrounding us. We may struggle with things here and there, but we always have them to pick us back up and reassure us that we are going to make it through these times. I just want to let everyone know, friends, family, and neighbors. Your kindness and friendship is truly appreciated. We don't know what we would do with out all of you. Thanks so much for always being there when we needed you.
