Lydia's been taking a regular, longer nap these days, so I've had a bit more downtime in the afternoons. It's been wonderful. I've been busy crocheting and cooking lately. I messed around with my ranch dressing recipe and improved it (I will update it on the blog, if anyone's interested). I'm currently crocheting Nathaniel a wool hat. I hope it fits. And I've had to spend many mornings this week at the school. One of the reasons was Malachi's Thanksgiving program. And he and Elijah both got medals at the assembly for participating in the PTA art contest (which they loved!). We've been keeping busy, which is good since Nathaniel's been in Europe all week. We can't wait to have him home tomorrow night!
