The Little Things Thursdays: #20

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. Play Date!
We were invited to visit our friend Emma and her Mommy today for a play date! It was a bit of a drive to get there, but so worth it! They just built a new toy room onto their house, so it was a first for both them and  us: First little friends over to play for them, and first play date post-lockdown for us! I'm always floored when someone actually volunteers to host my 2-year-old toddler quadruplets at their house. Brave family!

2. Ellie the Trendsetter
Ellie always has some sort of accessory that she manages to find. Today she found Daddy's snow hat and gloves. Look out fashion world!

3. I Don't Even Know How to Title This
The girls were each given a doll stroller for Christmas, and the boys actually enjoy pushing them around as much as the girls. I glanced over at Caleb a couple of days ago, and he was happily sitting in the doll stroller just hanging out. He saw the camera come out and immediately grinned. Lol!

4. Just Because They are Cute!
Since Ellie and Caleb got their own photos, I couldn't just skip Eli and Abby. This is just a snapshot of them sitting on the couch. Another day at the Ishum house!

5. DietBet
With two weeks to go until our DietBet is over, I only have 1.5 pounds left to lose. This is much harder than I thought it would be! A nice friend from church gave me a package of her Body by Vi shake mix to try since it has super high protein. The shake above is Strawberry Cheesecake and was actually pretty good! The shake mix takes on whatever flavor I add, so I can drink a different one everyday. It's a pretty nifty concept, really. I'm also trying to up my water intake, reduce my carbs, and skip dessert. Ugh! I love my dessert! But I have to say, this DietBet is GREAT motivation for losing weight! I've lost a pant size in the last couple of weeks!
