~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life. ~
I think colored pencils are so pretty! I especially love them when they have fun names, like "peacock" and "golden beak!" This extra thick set is the Gold Birds Metallic Pencils from eeBoo, and is what Rose has been using to color her Easter Coloring Page.
The big girls were very happy that we were still having our annual Mother-Daughter Tea Party, even though we completed Little Flowers last year.
The boys were also very happy to serve for the tea, once they found out that three of their friends were willing to help as well. The $5 tips they each received were definitely an added bonus!
I heard one of the boys say "We can each get a new mini-figure!!!"
Yes, they were very happy, and they did an excellent job!
The weather has been crazy this week! On Monday we had grey skies... Rain... Hail... Snow... More rain... Blue Skies... Sunshine... Grey skies... More hail... and then the blue skies came back. It is sunny (yet still a little chilly today) but thankfully the blue skies are back. I'm hoping they will stick around! I'm so ready for summer.
The kids did enjoy the hail and all ran outside immediately before I caught them and told them all to "GET BACK INSIDE!!!" Thankfully it wasn't damaging hail, but still!
Later we discussed hail, and all the potential hazards... ;)
Where is this poor little boy's momma?! He fell asleep half way across the tile floor while I was making pizzas for lunch last Friday afternoon for the kids and our visitors. Poor baby! I wasn't going to take a picture (proof of what a awful mom I am sometimes!) but my friend insisted. Don't you just love the drool and his little toes tucked under his bottom. And that little bruise on his forehead? Well, he has started banging his head on whatever is closest (including that hard tile floor) when he is upset or doesn't get his way... I've never had a baby do that before!
In my defense, he doesn't usually fall asleep on the floor.
I posted proof on Instagram the other night... ;)
