That is a lot of Animal crackers.

I was getting ready to go out for a friend’s birthday party, and the big kids were watching the babies, and Judah comes running in to tell me that the babies had got out the animal crackers and were getting them all over the kitchen. I thought well that should keep them busy for a little bit, thinking that maybe they each had a handful or so.
I was wrong. They were ALL over the kitchen.

The animal crackers were from my sister’s wedding, four years ago. They were in the bottom of the pantry and pretty much forgotten about until, this morning when I took everything out of the pantry because our dishwasher was leaking water into the pantry and the floor was all wet. Which leads me to my next point; we got a new dishwasher today.

We just got our tax return back, and it really wasn’t what we had planned on spending it on. I got kind of bummed that we were going to have to spend it on something practical instead of something fun, but Jeremy pointed out to me how good God is because every time something big breaks or needs to be replaced it always happens right when we have the money to fix it. It really couldn’t have come at a better time. We decided to go ahead and get the new washer and dryer we had been wanting while we were at it. We didn’t really need a new dryer as we just replaced ours last year, but our washer is over 10 years old and it is on its way out.

Now the animal crackers have all been thrown away

and the kids have a new toy to play with.
