Happy Friday!

Halle took her ponytail out of her hair. Kaia said, "Mommy, Halle looks like a banana!" Well alrighty then! You are what you eat, right?

How Creative!

Last week, we spent a lot of time at home while Halle was sick. Kaia loves being free to play and pretend all day. It doesn't matter how many toys they have, it's the ordinary stuff that's the most fun. She came up with this one on her own using a tissue box that was lying around, and I found a second box for her. They're seriously like ice skates on carpet! She laughed so hard, slipping, sliding, and falling down, she got me giggling. What a silly girl!
For you Office fans out there...this reminds me of Kevin, do you remember why?

Caramel Apples!

I LOVE caramel apples. It's one of the best things about fall. I saw some caramel apples in the grocery store and thought Kaia might appreciate trying one. Well, she took about two bites - neither of which included any apple - and said she was done. I'm surprised! Whatev, more for me! I managed to choke it down.

On another note, Halle has had a fever for the last few days, and has not been herself. She has no other symptoms, so I'm not too concerned. We happened to have a check up scheduled for tonight, so we'll see what the doctor says. But just look at how sad she looks...

Celebrate Good Times!

We've reached a huge milestone in the Loos family today. And it has nothing to do with the kids! Today, I paid off the balance on our car loan. Now, the ONLY remaining debt we have is our mortgage. Yahoo! It feels so good. Never in our married life had we even come close to this. We've always had debt and payments upon payments. And yeah, Mike's new job has helped, but we are by no means swimming in money, we've just gotten smarter about it. Last winter we took a course called Financial Peace University though our church. It's a product of Dave Ramsey, a well known financial guru. It was phenomenal! I recommend it to ANYONE! Ok, I'm off my soapbox. If you want to know more, ask me, or go to the FPU website. I'm so excited I just needed to tell the world.
