i feel like i'm either ignoring this place or saturating it with pictures.
i'm up. i'm down. i'm hot. i'm cold. i'm on. i'm off.
match making with your kids friends isn't a bad thing. is it?
we will be recreating this photo with their prom dresses. mark my words.
on TOP of your eyes only, sweetheart.
they find a common ground and that's all they need. period.
girls are so much more work.
boys are simple.
you like video games?! boom. playdate done.
all legal suggestions welcome. and please don't say tea.....
it just takes more time. and more mess.
and also, it just doesn't last as long...because its so much better than anything else....you take a loaf of homemade bread out of the oven, and that's it. it is not going to last.
bread type things have always been the thing i'm most afraid to try.
i love when gabriela lets her guard down to have fun like this!
by the time we were finished up, i even wanted to throw a fit about how much we've been. it was ridiculous.
everyone's doing it. and it's been around for so long. i'm still up in the air as to if i am happy with doing it. i liked it just plain black like that.
but once we started using it, i became a little nutty with how much of a mess it made. right on my beautiful floor. we have chalk in the cracks. on the chairs. on the tile. on our feet.
whatever kids. just clean up your messes.
they kept complaining that their backs hurt. so we told them to take off their back packs...gma and papa won't be here for hours.
NO! WE'RE KEEPING THEM ON!
well, okay then.
i also want to note (for my future self reading back on this) that they did so great when we had to pack up and leave. no fits from anyone. this isn't such a popular way to behave lately so it was very well received. it makes going to places like this so much more worth it. good job, kiddos.
that girl was bored out of her mind.
i looked like a mesh of these two greats on my way to take the kids to school.
i laughed about that for a while...
he took it upon himself to read to isa before bed. he calls her 'honey' all the time. and he genuinely cares about his sisters. and all the people.
including this strawberry pie.
which was wonderful!
we made heart shaped (fail) bacon and heart shaped pancakes.
even if i'm already dressed and have my hair washed and done.
it's well worth the time to redo it all.
i can't get enough of our fireplace. the sound, the smell, the heat, the mood.
it's so lovely. we wish we would have put on upstairs somewhere.
next time. :)
