Sunshine Sunday - sisters and sharing ice cream

On Friday I was at my sister Cassie's house when out of nowhere Rex threw up all over her counter and floor.  Cassie is seven months pregnant and I told her to run to another room so she wouldn't get sick.  She, however, cleaned up my child's super nasty mess on her hands and knees while I took him to the toilet.  While that's a gross story, it illustrates how awesome and sweet my sister is.  She loves my kids as her own.  (Sorry again about all those ruined coupons Cass :)  And obviously, there's no picture to go with the story.  Pretty sure you wouldn't want it.

I have another sister that lives fairly close by (Leca) and she and I got to get dinner together the other night.  We stayed at the restaurant for hours talking and never ended up shopping, but that's how I like it.  It was so fun and she's always a party.  I really feel so lucky to have amazing sisters.

Lastly, we went to SubZero as a family and got ice cream last night.  We love to order one giant bowl of ice cream and share it.  (Plus, it's way cheaper that way.)  At SubZero they take the cream and use liquid nitrogen to make it into ice cream right in front of you.  The boys think it's super cool.....and frankly, so do I.  There is something fun about ice cream and even more fun when you have little excited mouths to share it with.

I am thankful for the big things and the little things.  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Ohhhh sisters are just the best!!! My sister is my best friend but darn she lives half the United States away.....way too far!

  2. I have to add to your post!! There is one more sister who the other day was telling me about her little sister and was so excited for her and so proud! (Not in a braggy way but in the most happy, loving way! Thought you should know :) You are right! You have rockin' sisters!

  3. I love that quote you put up! So funny! I am so blessed to live by my sister too, it's the best for sure!!

  4. I miss my sister!

  5. I LOVE my sisters & the crazy, silly times we share together!! Sounds like you have awesome sisters as well! Your little men are DARLING!!

  6. It makes me feel so good to read that you and your sisters are close. I don't have sisters, but I have two girls. Some days they are worst enemies, some days they are BFF's. I pray that the BFF will win out when they get older. My brother is my BFF and it is something I thank God for every single night. LOVE that quote too. It is exactly what I would do to my brother. Ha ha ha

    SubZero sounds soo cool! We'll have to squeeze that into our visit when we come out this summer. My little guy would LOVE it!

  7. So thankful for my sis! Thanks for the reminder....I'm gonna call her today :)

  9. Wow those sisters sound really great. You're so lucky! :)

    Thanks for the talk. I needed that.

  10. Great quote. But I really wanted to point out how you are sharing the ice cream. How come your boys don't get spoons?!!?? LOL.

  11. Cheri,

    It sounds like your sister is one of those lucky people that messes like these don't bother and you are lucky that she is yours.
    Love the sign and I will have to make one for each of my sisters for their birthdays. That's more my families style.


  12. I am the oldest of 3 girls and we are alllll very different. But I get them, they get me and we are 3. Honestly, I always wanted a brother, but I wouldn't trade those knuckleheads...and hey, I got a brother when I get married ;)
