cupcakes, college kids, & care packages

Shoo wee! It's Friday, & this week has flown by! It's been a bit of a challenging week with Jett- he got shots on Wednesday, so has been pretty fussy the past couple of days. I have gotten next to nothing accomplished around the house, but on the bright side, I have gotten in lots & lots of cuddle time- which is way more fun anyways ;)

Yesterday I did manage to put together some care packages to send off to some of our favorite college kids :) Jared & I were involved in the Youth Ministry at our church prior to having Jett, & this year a few of the kids that we got to see come in as Freshmen in High School are walking out to be Freshmen in college! While we are so proud of them, it is a little bittersweet watching them grow up & leave. They aren't our children, but their parents have graciously shared them with us over the past 4 years, & we love them like they are our own! I will miss the slumber parties, the brutal honesty, & even the occasional phone calls that would wake us at 2 a.m. My thoughts & prayers go out this week to those parents, who have raised their children from babies, & are now watching them leave their "nests" to go out into the world as adults. In the blink of an eye, I know I will be where they are, & I will need the same prayers (tear). It has been an honor to be a part of their lives, & we are excited to see what God has planned for each of them!

And today, (while DaddyBoy entertained Jett) I managed to bake cupcakes for my little bro's birthday! We will be celebrating tomorrow with family here at our house! I was really hoping to make the cupcakes from scratch, but just ran out of time & ended up with a box mix :/ The frosting is home-made, though- that counts for something, right?!

Well, that's a few of our "happenings" for now! Have a great weekend!
