sweetest baby Linden Elliott! Last night he was born to my sister Ashleigh and her husband Burton at 8:03pm he weighs 2 pounds 13oz and measures 37cm. He was born at 27 weeks but seems to be quite feisty. We are so thankful for his safe delivery! He will be living in the NICU for the next several weeks and welcome all your prayers and love for this precious little boy.

a week in my life: thursday

*by this point I am really not enjoying this project anymore and had decided I probably didn't need to do it again - maybe every 5 years would be good- then I thought I was more than halfway through so I'd tough it out.

- Thursdays I drive and pick up from school

- we went to Haggen's for lunch with friends
- Amelia had a play date with Paige
- make brownies
- girls 'help' with the clean up
- do some budgeting on the computer
- shed a ginormous pile of paper
- thought I would go to a body pump class for the first time since my knee surgery - realize I read the schedule wrong
- decide to hang out in the sunshine with a friend on the deck instead
- kids play outside
- don't feel like making dinner
- pick up Chinese take out instead
- kids bedtime routine
- Dale and I watch CSI
- I read my book (I think part of my week not being productive is because I can't stop reading this book)
