Ode to the PBJ

Today I was craving a Peanut butter and Jelly sandwich. It's amazing how a sandwich I ate almost everyday as a kid still tastes wonderful. It's been awhile since I had one. Travis takes them for lunch once or twice a week. But since I'm trying to eat what Evan eats for lunch, and because he cannot have peanutbutter, I have been cutting down on my PBJ intake. It's so sad isn't it?

Today is different though. It's lunch time and Evan is still napping. Going down later for his nap has a hidden blessing for Mama. As I walk toward the kitchen to determine what we have for a quick lunch, I remember. Creamy peanut butter in the door of the pantry. Homeade blackberry jelly in the door of the fridge. Soft yummy wheat bread on the counter. Ouhhhh my heart skipped, I can have a PBJ and feed Evan when he wakes. How delightful! This was also my chance to partake in the fabulous Blackberry jelly Grandma Kate gave us for Christmas. The jar is almost half gone and I haven't had my share. Jelly made by Grandma Kate doesn't last to long in any Lucas house.

So here I am enjoying a delicious treat, the PBJ. Crunching on some chips and slurpping up my water. Pure joy.

Happy Friday

Hi Friends!
Happy Friday. Are you ready for the weekend?
We woke up to snow this morning, and it's still snowing a little bit right now. My friends Lando and Bria came over to play with me this morning. I was excited they were over but was also little shy too. It was kinda weird to see someone else play with my toys. We laughed and we cried a little. I was also happy to see them go home. I got excited when I saw them walking down the driveway. We shut the door and I started talking to my bear and running around while Mama made lunch. We're going to my Gma and Gpa's house tonight. They have a cat named Max. Max is so cool, he makes me laugh. I love him. Then tomorrow night I get to go to my other Gma and Gpa's house. I'm so lucky to be loved so much.
Have and rockin weekend everybody.
Peace out!

New Favorite

So we've been listening to Pandora a lot lately. I listen and home and Travis will listen at work. We are so in love with this site and have found many new artist we really like. What is Pandora you ask? Pandora is an online free radio station. You create an account, enter in an artist you like and they will play that artist plus others that are similar. Your stations are saved so it's easy to jump from style or artist when your mood changes. Super cool! So our new favorite station is Shawn McDonald, his music is full of truth and has a funky beat. Thanks to our friend Desirae who introduced him to us. We listened to him while beating the guys in a game of Canasta and have listened to him since. Check him out I'm sure you'll enjoy him too.

Here is a picture of our sweet family taken when our newest nephew was born December 26. Love you all. Have a terrific, enjoyable weekend.
