I love how the kids can turn any and everything into a party. We were going to have some friends come over to watch the Lorax and Savvy went into full on party planning.

I have been in such a "crafty" mood over the past 2 weeks. It all started with a can of spray paint and then getting addicted to craigslist :) I let the kids pick out the colors to paint our outside chairs. These were my great-grandmothers! I'm sure she would have never thought her patio furniture would be these colors, let alone in Washington. Hope it makes her smile.
Then we set this up in the laundry room, school's about to start!!! We found out Savannah's teacher last week and will meet her next week.

We had such a fun weekend but were so glad to get Michael back home. Friday night the older kids and I didn't go to sleep until after 10, they got to sleep in our bed and talked and talked and talked. At 10 I told them that they had to start talking in their head...lol. My heart and bed was full :)
We then went to the Y and I got a good hour of alone time :) I was feeling so good we decided to WALK downtown and go to the farmers market. We discovered yellow watermelon (tasted just like red watermelon) but was pretty
Then that night a sweet friend had us over for dinner. I think the world could be changed with dinner invites. And I think Caleb enjoyed dessert...notice we put him outside to eat
These are pictures from Michael's trip, he loved it and said it was beautiful. They went to Ice Lake at Eagle Cap Wilderness

Ahhhh, the day is almost over. Today was a very good day, but it was hard, challenging and rewarding as most days are when your raising kids :) When I was making dinner I was singing (in opera) "y'all gonna make me lose my mind up in here, up in here". I promised Savvy and Cohen they could sleep with me tonight (Michael's backpacking) and we are all going to be in bed by 7:30. I will have a book, glass of wine and snugglers, I'm pretty excited.
Here are some pictures of our week, Cohen wants to be a ninja so SO bad

I honestly don't get it. My boys have YET to get even a decent hair cut. I love their hair long but I usually let it go longer than I would like because I dread, dread the haircut. All the kids have a double crown so I know that makes it hard to cut. But seriously look what Caleb ended up with.

Our week started with a very sick little boy! We stayed at home for 2 days and my busy little toddler turned into a cuddle bug. I was the lucky one who got to hold him.

Savvy has been talking about getting her ears pierced for over a year and after dragging my feet I folded. I was never against it, but I knew how much older she would look. So alas we did it. She was so excited and nervous and decided that "flower" should come with us.
She said that they aren't sore and she has been twisting them when I clean it. She picked out the butterfly December birth stone. Teal is her favorite color:) Her little ears look beautiful
