Wonderful Wednesday

I love Wednesdays!  Now that we have our little angel, Jamie here to help out.  I am trying to get her some more hours using Javi's respite hours.  We have never tapped in to his hours, so we thought that we should start using them up.  Jamie is so awesome, I just love having her around to help with the kiddos.  I can actually make time to do our fun things like our Wednesday cooking days with little stress.  

Today, we are making Gingerbread men.  We are chilling the dough in the fridge, then we are going to roll it out and make the men.  Then on to baking and decorating.  I will post some pics of the boys creations to Flickr later (Click on the Flickr badge on the right column to view). 

My new keyboard should be on it's way to us, so I will have my laptop (cracktop, going through withdrawl) up and running again soon.  Right now, I am using hubby's slave top, but it is chained to my hubby's office, cuz I don't want to run the risk of another mishaps.  It's safer in here.   

It's so much easier to blog typing on a real keyboard.  Don't get me wrong, I love my iPhone, but I do go cross eyed typing on it and it does take longer since I am using two thumbs instead of all ten fingers and thumbs.  Plus, of course it is a lot slower than my laptop. It sure does a lot for a little handheld though!  I don't know what I would do with out it.

Starting on a new web project that should keep me pretty busy. May have less night time blogging time to comment, but I will still be reading and keeping up of course.

Javi school update: 
Tomorrow his teacher from last year will be doing her observation, so we are hoping for some good info there.  Our plan is still to change Javi's class, since we have not felt a solid connection with the school/class/teacher.  Just feel that it's a mismatch for Javi.  We are just waiting to see what the observations will show.  We are pretty sure that NSH is a good fit for Javi, but we are just waiting on the observations before making any moves.

Prayer Request:
Please pray for my mom this month.  She has been getting treatment for her anemia.  She will be spending every Monday in the hospital for the month of November getting iron infused blood cocktail transfusions.  We hope that this will help her feel better.  We are still waiting on results of her test to see what is causing the problem.  Please pray for her.  We can't live with out her, so we need her to be healthy and vibrant :)

Well, that's all for now.  Hope everyone is having a great hump day!

I'm seriously impressed that you could type that whole post from your iphone! Gingerbread men...yuuuuummy! I'm really thinking once we get a place of our own to investigate respite hours. Even to just have someone at the house I can do fun-sie things like cook with Bristel! She LOVES cooking! And actually just helped me make lasanga for din. Have I mentioned that I adore no-boil noodles?! Brilliance! Anyway... Hoping Javi's observe gives you solid info to move forward! And hug your mom when you can for me! Prayers are being sent from RI!
