Smashed Tomatoes

That’s what our 3-year-old called the yummy mashed potatoes that Grandma made for dinner last night. I got such a chuckle out of it, I wanted to write it down! :)

The girls and I are doing well today…it’s a sunny, bright day, and they’re playing outside with Grandpa. For me, the reality is setting in more and more that I won’t see Matt for a while, and that has been hard, but I find that at the same time, my heart has been filled with gratitude for the love that we have for each other, as well as the love and kindness that both our families have showed to us. Matt’s mom and dad have been so generous to us in allowing us to stay so that our house can stay pristine, and they have given so much patience and kindness. My sister called me yesterday with such a nice surprise, and I was so touched by her kindness that I don’t think I can tell her how much it means to me right now! And CELL PHONES are heaven-sent. :) I love that Matt and I can still talk all the time. :) He is loving Colorado, and that makes me so happy!

    Cute! And I’m so glad it’s sunny out there – it’s completely dark (for daytime) out here, with lots of rain. Woke to the L O U D E S T thunder-rumble (or reasonably close explosion? No emergency vehicles, though…) ever, aside from when the cloud lightning was directly overhead one time as a kid! We're all still yawning, LOL…But back to your life, LOL – I'm so glad you have cell phones to use, too!!! How wonderful! And I'm glad Matt's loving CO! :-) We love you & are keeping you in our prayers!!!
