The Ronald McDonald House sent us this picture of Noah when he dropped off the first batch of pop tabs. Now we have just as many so it is time to go again! (on the floor you can see a huge garbage bag full too!) This is amazing! And I am so excited about all of the families that will benefit from everyone collecting their tabs!
My bean story...
To liven up the summer I am cooking much more than I normally do (before I rarely cooked), and I am trying new recipes! Well, I found a recipe for apple, raisin oatmeal that cooks overnight in the crockpot. I was so excited about it because I just knew that Noah would love it! When he got home from work we went to Kroger to get two ingredients that I needed. Neither of us knew what a vanilla bean was, but we knew we needed it for the oatmeal. We ended up laughing in the isle becaue ONE bean was $11! We had no idea, and for a new recipe we didn't want to risk it. We kept thinking that maybe the oatmeal needed just a piece of the bean or something like it. We ended up going home without the bean, and we ended up laughing all night about that overly expensive bean. So if you see us growing a garden, you know that we will be growing vanilla beans!
The story may not be as funny when someone else reads what happened, but we were rolling!
Tomorrow we are going to check and see how Walt is doing. He is moving well, so that keeps me from worrying, and my only complaints are the normal ones for someone who is pregnant. I am hoping to share some pictures with you because we are getting a sonogram to check Walt's growth...just to be sure that he is doing well and that there is no reason to worry.
