Before and After

I found a dresser on my walk one evening.
I brought it home for the girls to see if the would like to give it a makeover.
 After many serious discussions between the two of them, they decided to split the dresser and create two sets of drawers.  They picked the colors and did most of the sanding and spray painting.

Your Own Grocery Cart

Or as Jack calls it, I can buy as many watermelons as I want to.

Blanket Washing Day

It's the worst.

Sick Baby

Jack was sick, so slept in my bed.  Cei came down first thing in the morning to check on him.

Binge Watching

We may or may not be binge watching the new Anne of Green Gables series on Netflix.
And we may or may not be staying up a little too late some of those nights.
And some of may need a nap after school some days because of it.

We were shopping when Jack saw someone behind us, and started screaming, "HEY!  Don't pick your nose!  You no pick your nose."  I quickly tried to walk away because he was really loud, and told him to be quiet, but he kept telling him, "We don't pick you nose.  No, no.  Don't pick you nose!  Dat's YUCKY!"

Mother's Day

These are my favorite humans.  I love their different personalities.  I love that they make me want to be better.  I love how much they love me.  I am a very lucky lady (Cei made my necklace).
 I also love this hair.  And they way he smells.  And that his hands are so fat.  And that he comes into my room first thing, climbs into my bed, and uses my tablet without asking.
 And I love that these girls still make me handmade gifts, with so much love and time put into them.  And I love that Savannah tells me secrets.  And that I have to remind Cei not to hug me so tight it hurts my stomach.  And that Savy still lets me do her hair every morning.  And Cei still wears onesie pajamas.  I am a lucky lady.

First Day Back in the Pool

We were back in the pool for the first time this year on Saturday.  Usually we are swimming much earlier in the year, but it's been such a mild Spring, we haven't had to.  Jack surprised me by figuring out his floaty right away.  He even braved the slide.
 He was not happy when it was time to go home.

Temple Day

Guardians of the Galaxy Two

Savy and I had a date night on Friday and saw Guardians of the Galaxy Two.  I learned we don't use enough crude slang in our house.  I had to explain to my almost twelve year old what the words piss and turd meant.  She must go to school with the most well behaved middle school youth on the planet.
