giveaway winner + rocking

the winner of the valentine's day card giveaway was crystal - woohoo!;) your package will be on its way to you tomorrow my dear. enjoy!

today was another good day around here.

sleeping a little when the sun came up. loved that.

second day of my mom's awesome french toast. i could eat that everyday and be pretty happy about it.

crafting with my mom and malena.

lunch with my brother's family, which of course included a lot of of laughs which was perfect.

a trip to the library to check out some new books and play a couple of learning games.

more crafting with my mom and malena.

awesome dinner with fresh clams from my brother who took advantage of yesterday's clam tide. so good. yum. thank you brother, you are the best.

reading our new library books - multiple times.

one more s'more - even though it isn't a campout night. yep, i caved - and it didn't take a lot of effort.

multiple games of "you can't catch me" around the kitchen and living room.

endless tickle fights.

a ton of good things and love packed into this sunday when we all (minus malena) have so many scary thoughts running through our heads.

malena did not want to go to bed tonight, so it was a long routine tonight with a lot of tears from her. after a while, she sat with me in the rocking chair in her room and finally fell asleep with her head on my shoulder. i don't remember the last time that she felt asleep laying on me in that chair while i was rocking her, i wish that i did more clearly remember those precious moments that come and go in a flash. but it was the perfect way to spend the end of this day with her, just listening to her breathing and feeling her snuggled up against me in the dark.

by the time that most of you are reading this, i will already know the results of the scans.

i will post an update tomorrow, and will do my best to not wait until the end of the day.

thanks again for all of the good thoughts, prayers, and wishes that you have been sending from wherever you call home.

anywhere i go you go.
