A night out

Once I got home yesterday I was worn out from the entire day, and emotionally tired too. I was pleasantly surprised by a birthday card from my aunt, that had some money inside {thank you Caron!}. So since it had been such a long day we packed up the kiddo's, and went to a much needed dinner out. I enjoyed not cooking, and not worrying about the issue at hand. I also enjoyed listening to Jude crack up at Emily in the back of the truck. She took some pictures of him, but I failed to make it to work with my camera today.

When we got home I headed to a hot bath, and then afterwards fed Jude. I then took Jude, and we went to sleep really early. Mike came to tuck me into bed, and told me how much he loved me, and how I cannot leave him. I told him I have no intentions of going anywhere anytime soon! Mike was great about getting up with the cat, and Jude last night so I could rest. I did get up once though to let that naughty kitty outside.

So today I woke up, and I still feel tired, but I am ready to start the day!! Before I was leaving Jude was awake and had taken over my spot in the bed. Right next to him Scooter had laid down, and was letting Jude run his hands through his fur. Jude would smile each time he touched the cat. He doesn't mean to put his hands on him, but when he did he would smile. I asked "Jude is that your kitty cat", to my surprise Jude would look right at the cat each time I said "Kitty", and would smile. I think he gets it.

So the drop off to Children's Hospital is sat for March 6th. Emily's Smile Boxes is taking 100 boxes, and 40 teddy bears to drop off. We also have 4 volunteers that have signed up, Faith, Addison, Casen, and Madison. Each volunteer will be wearing a T SHIRT, that says "I am an Emily's Smile Box helper because kids CAN make a difference in the world!". Em really wants to work on other kids helping the community. So throughout next week they will put the 100 boxes together, and then they will all drop them off together. I am hoping Children's will give them a short tour of the hospital.

That's so cute about Jude and the kitty. Congrats on the upcoming trip to drop off more smile boxes too. Emily is doing a great job with this. Take care and have a good weekend. Jenn

Glad you all got a night out, Jenn! Kitties are so nice. We have one who just loves Faith. She likes to lick Faith's hand and she thinks it is the funniest thing ever. Even though she beats the cat up and pulls her tail and her ears that cat still runs up to Faith as soon as we get home and starts rubbing all over her!
