2Clock, Time for Tea

Here's a post I started a couple of weeks ago, but have just been too sad to post anything happy. But as I said, we're getting better. 

When my brother was little there must have been a commercial on TV in the late 90's that said "2clock, time for tea" and another one that said "$9.99 are you out of your mind???" because he would run around saying those two things...A LOT!

Haha. Anyway...

Sophia was in tea party heaven!
We used the white 'Mommy Dishes'

In her cute new Jelly the Pug Denim Blue Lilou Dress

Tea and PB&J

Look how big that smile is :)

Sophia's "tea" mostly milk with a drop of extra watery green tea

After awhile, we even made Dad join in on the fun.

So sophisticated

I don't think it would be unreasonable to say that our lives have felt a little sad and empty this past week. We miss our dog :( 

But things have slowly been returning to normal. 

These two are either being the sweetest kids ever, or the worst kids ever. No middle ground.

We're getting slammed with super hot and crappy weather. 

I bought this vase.

We had beautiful sunsets all week long from the storms.

These two...

Michael's vocabulary has expanded to quote a few words: book, poop, thank you, mama, dad, baba, hat, what is that, cheep cheep, bark. Haha-it's quite the variety.

I finally finished the rec room floor!

I spent a good portion of my Friday doing this 😁

And then lucky lucky Daniel came home to a bathroom that our tiny little threenager flooded while she insisted on making our shower into a bathtub. 

What a week.

We will always love you, Penny.

Today we said goodbye to a sweet, gentle,  patient, loving member of our family. We saved her life four years ago, and only wish she could have been with us longer. Rest in Peace Penny. We love you.

Sophia's Sick Day

Well, Soph was under the weather today (fever of 102) and my stupid work computer is broken, and Daniel had real work he had to do,so I'm already sooooo far behind, I just took a half sick day to snuggle my babies.

But first I got my @$$ up at 4am and went to work to try and get caught up on some stuff. Glaaaah :(

Soph has been sick since Saturday, but she's on the mend. She slept most of the morning, so Mikey and I got some quality time in.

I totally forgot this was carved into the bottom of our bird feeder.

After lunch Soph was up and somewhat about, but then it started to rain.

Then around 5pm she started getting her energy back and her fever was finally down to 99.9, so we all decided to get out of the house together for a little bit and get some fresh air.

And so ends another Monday for the Coombs Ohana.

Come On Emmons Family, Just Move to Hawaii Already!!!

Three of our very favorite Missourians came to visit recently. I only wish I would have been able to take more stress-free time off to spend with them. Actually, I only wish they would move here so we could hang out with them more than one time each year.
