The Little Things Thursdays: #19

Welcome to The Little Things Thursday!! 

If you are new to our link-up, we like to take a minute to look back on the little things that brightened our week. So often we get busy and forget all of the things that we enjoy as we go through our daily lives. This is an opportunity to stop, remember, and enjoy those things! Nothing is too fact, the smaller the better! That's the whole point! If you have a blog, link-up below. If you don't blog, I'd love for you to participate by leaving a comment. Ready?

1. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10!
We've been working very hard on our speech development, so we do a lot of counting and a lot of repeating letters and sounds. When their occupational therapist was here this week, we decided to show her how well we are counting to 10. She watched as each of the kids (except Caleb. He isn't counting yet) took turns saying their favorite number. It goes a lot like this:
          Mom: One...
          Abby: Two! Three!
          Mom: Four....Five....
          Elijah: Six...Seven.... Eight....
          Ellie: Nine!
          Elijah: TEN! Ta-da!!
She was pretty impressed with the group effort! Do you think their teachers in school will let them collaborate on math homework? Hehe!

2. Free Cone Day at Ben and Jerry's
I love ice cream. Especially when it's FREE! Sean and I briefly escaped on Tuesday while my Mom hung with the kids. Of course we had to stop by Ben and Jerry's for Free Cone Day! I had a scoop of New York Super Fudge Chunk. Yummy! It happens once a year about this time. Mark your calendars for 2014!

3. Cheap Asparagus
An informal FaceBook poll on my personal page and instagram showed that I'm not the only one who gets excited when asparagus comes into season. We love asparagus at our house, but never get it when it's not on sale. $2.99 lb for a vegetable? Uh, I don't think so. Imagine my delight when I looked through the sale ads and saw that it's only $0.98 lb at Price Chopper this week! You can be sure that asparagus will be on our menu next week at least once (if not twice!). What do you think? Am I weird for letting asparagus make it on to my Little Things Thursday list?

Now it's your turn! What Little Things brightened up your week? Link up your post below (or leave a comment if you aren't a blogger) and make sure you come back next week to play again!

  1. I love when asparagus is on sale too! I love love love the stuff, but agree, it is too pricey to get it unless it is on sale. We grabbed a bunch and have had it three days this week! :) Great hop. I hope to join next time.

  2. Hi Rebecca,
    My DS5 is has troubles sounding out some letters. I can understand him (cause I'm Mommy and that's just what I do) but some others can't and I have found that lately there are a few (very few) that I am not understanding. We finally have an appointment set up for the 24th with a speech therapist. And I can't wait; he is also getting a little tired of having to repeat himself. Here's to hoping it works!

  3. I also grabbed a few bundles of asparagus today too! I've read to blanch before freezing, so I think I will try a few batches because this is such a good deal!

  4. No blog, but I DO love Little Things Thursdays almost (!) as much as I love asparagus! Yummmy! Roasted, steamed, with pasta, or wrapped with prosciutto and roasted about 10 minutes. Love checking in here from time to time to see how the Ishum Quads are growing and changing.
