Y’all I just can’t get with it blog-wize lately… I guess part of it is laziness, but things have also been sort of nuts lately. I really need to clone 3 more of me just to get through this week.
But before I get too far behind, here’s whatever’s on my phone. These first several are from Memorial Day weekend…
Knox and I went out for pizza after Speech Therapy that Saturday…
He was hamming it up good, which doesn’t happen often, so you get to see them all :)
I can’t decide if this is my favorite of Hadley’s summer bishops or not, but it’s definitely top 3! I love that it’s not over the top stars and stripes, but it’s still subtly patriotic. (These are the thoughts that occupy my brain…) She’s worn it lots but it was especially perfect for Memorial Day :)
Knox and I were walking outside when all the sudden he stopped and said “I have to scratch my back…”
OMG! My Dad is the only person I know who actually does this, so I’m blaming him!
Hadley graduated to a Puddle Jumper this year (she was REALLY excited about wearing it) and she’s done so well it it!
We went to the pool over Memorial Day…
And I made brisket tacos for the first time ever…
How would we ever survive without our own personal Iron Man???
She looks so funny here!
I love Memorial Day for many reasons, one of those reasons is the SALES!
So much cuteness! My bargains made for one super fun mail week. (Although I think James may lose it if he sees one more poly mailer on the porch…)
I don’t have patience for over-hyped FB flash sales, but when I saw these re-posted from non-payers I was ALL over them.
Playing dress up with my baby dolls :)
Crafty time has been scarce for me lately, but here’s a few small projects I’ve managed to complete…
H’s 2012 monogrammed suit.
It’s so hard to find good quality bows with a 3 letter monogram. So you know what they say - if you want something done right…
Do it yourself! Not to mention I just have an ungodly amount of ribbon needing to be used up.
Nothing sweeter than a little girlie in a big white bow!
Knox started his first VBS of the summer this week. We were especially excited because it’s at the new school he’ll start in the fall.
The theme is Babylon: Daniel’s Courage in Captivity. Knox is in Tribe Benjamin and this is his teacher helping him in to his tunic on the first day.
He’s had SO much fun!
A few randoms of the kids I got yesterday…
SO impressed by the splash fountain while we were out running errands.
This morning we had H’s 4th hemangioma laser treatment.
Here she is after she had her Silly Juice*…
And, boy does it make her…
She does so well with these now. They laugh at how awake and “happy” she is before they even get her back to Post-Op.
Here she is when she came back to me in recovery. There was something SO interesting about that ice pack.
When we got home I set her up on the couch with juice, crackers, and a show so the poor recovering baby could rest in quiet while brother was at VBS…
HA! I went to make a few calls and when I looked back up guess who’d found mommy’s box of dry erase markers and decided to decorate everything…
Walls and furniture included, but this stack would be 2 Anywhere Chairs, her BlaBla, a sweater blankie, and a romper. Who knew that dry erase marker is one of the hardest stains to get out??? The only thing that even remotely lifted it was rubbing alcohol and a lot of work. Most of it I was able to salvage, but the pink Anywhere Chair cover and the Carter’s bubble were damaged beyond repair :-/
We may be single-handedly keeping Mr. Clean Magic Eraser in business, but you tell me…
HOW I can be mad at this sweet baby when she’s still wearing her hospital bracelets??? So so innocent.
The End :)
