Thankfully the last week and a half has not been quite so crazy... quite.
We got a bunch of yard work done on Saturday, swept out the garage, and row-hoed the garden. The girls even helped Bob pick up sticks and burn the stick pile.
The little table got moved upstairs so they wanted to eat a snack at it.
We tried again on Tuesday to get this little one's pictures taken. It went much better and she smiled great.
Then I tried to take her to sewing club that evening. She was good long enough for me to eat, then she screamed. And wouldn't eat, and wouldn't calm down. So I took her home. I was there for about 45 minutes. Mur. I was a little bit disappointed, so I
sulked sewed for a while.
So the grocery store now has an option to order online and they bring it out to you at the store... which sounds pretty awesome. I tried it on Wednesday after story hour... we had a hard time getting out the door and then I left my phone at home and it was raining... you're supposed to call and tell them when you arrive. *sigh* I was so frustrated with myself. I had to walk in to the store through the rain, but otherwise it was a pretty great way to get groceries!
Since I wasn't in the best mood and it was Wednesday and I hadn't finished my chemistry lecture yet, and did I mention it was raining, I listened to all of Die Meistersinger von Nurnburg. Because Wagner is awesome. And Cecily asked, "is that done yet?" Ha. No, no it's not.
"Get on your own bike Cecy!!"
So our bouncy seat was originally borrowed from Sharon. After her two girls and ours the fabric cover was looking pretty sad. And starting to shred in places. So I sewed a new one. I bought double faced quilted fabric and bound all the seams so it's reversible. Woot woot. Cadence likes it and she's figured out how to kick her legs to make herself bounce.
Last Saturday was a lazy day and so nice out. They are obsessed with finding acorns (we don't have oak trees), or as Emmy calls them- "eggnuts." Cecily wanted to carve her pumpkin so we did... she drew a face and I cut it out. Emmy was more interested in rolling the other pumpkins around the porch.
Then they played in the sandbox... They dress themselves... (someday when you're reading this girls, it wasn't me, it was you!)
Sunday after church we went to Tom and Andria's T-town reception. Good times. Sarah and Ryan were there and it was fun to see them. We actually made it to hymn sing in the evening, so it was a full day.
Today was Cadence's 111st day! Woot woot! We've made it eleventy-one days, and it's all down hill from here. Ha. Bob suggested a three layer skillet cookie... so I baked cookie bars in round pans and made ganache for the filling and the top. It wasn't quite thin enough so it looks more lumpy than drippy and elegant. Oh well, it tastes great.
Little snuffles slept through her own eleventy-first day celebration. (ooo, this is the reverse of the bouncy cover)
We took a picture together later. She was not too impressed. Also, I pretty much look as frazzled as I feel these days...
