Moments

from our last 7 days...
it's been a busy week!

Damon had tests, I had a couple of job interviews, Ellis and I did lots of grocery shopping, I helped put together a dinner for 300 women at church (it went down last night and turned out awesome) with a few other girls  from church, and Ellis grew a tooth!

We've been using a lot of stain remover...


Being too tired to stay awake during church...

Or too distracted to pay attention

enjoying baby spaghetti (piccolini pasta and organic tomato sauce)

hanging out in the kitchen

Really though, it was a little too busy this week for my tastes... I mean, we didn't even get to go to the farmer's market!
Last sunday after church we had the missionaries over for dinner
Monday Ellis and I ran errands most of the day and Damon had choir so he came home a little later
Tuesday, more errands, I went and applied at a couple of retail stores, Damon played volleyball at night
Wednesday, we went shopping at a few stores for the huge dinner last night, and then had mutual in the evening
Thursday I remember going to about 3 stores, poor Ellis was in the car seat a lot.
Friday was more planning and shopping, I had an interview in the evening and Damon had an MRI
Saturday ALL DAY was picking up food, cutting up lettuce, organizing, setting out, feeding, eating, all day love dinner affair.
And lots of other things that I can't even remember, but I do know that just now, Damon and I were doing the dishes trying to remember the last time we ate dinner here, together...
Today, church is over, Ellis is napping, Damon is studying..

I think next week I'll try to keep things a little quieter... A little more time with Ellis, working that tooth up and out all the way, staring out on the back patio, trying new foods... And hopefully more time with Damon, maybe even a date night this Friday? Maybe... 

Don't forget to slow down a little, and remember the moments that matter!
