I love Mondays | Marcielyons.com

Riley emails us every Monday, so I love Mondays even more now. I have always loved Monday because it was garbage day. I know – I’m crazy! (Clutter and I don’t mix very well!) Well, today Riley wrote to me and I totally forgot to write him a couple of weeks ago. He said, “You’re not very good at writing me emails, haha, but it’s ok.” I told him I had a brain on order and I should be getting it this week. I hope. Or was it next week?

Oh, I just realized we came home with extra things from St. George – 4 frogs and a lizard. What?! Doesn’t get better than this! (That’s what I always say to my kids when we are doing something they don’t like or to my employees when they look completely bored!) Jay’s brothers came over the other day and were laughing that we ended up with pets from St. George. They know when Jay was here the kids were strip-searched before entering the car and this would have never happened! Oh well, what can frogs and lizards hurt? I’m making my kids favorite dinner tonight. Here’s the recipe for happy kids:

Yogurt Pancakes
2 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup flour (I use 1/2 wheat flour)
1 1/2 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup water
1 cup plain yogurt (I use vanilla yogurt and omit vanilla)

Mix ingredients only to blend. Cook on medium high griddle.

Oops- that’s from me!!
I love getting his letters also!! I can’t believe how grown up and mature he is!!!! Okay I am totally going to try those pancakes. They sound so good. Where did you get that recipe? Not from Gma Hansen I guess because I have never heard of them either!

You are really amazing. Hope you don’t mind, I found your blog linked to two of my other friends blogs and read it twice this week. I hope you’re doing okay. I think of you always and don’t call you enough. I don’t know how you’re making it through this. I love you so much, and Natalie is right, she has the CUTEST mom! Love you!
