I like to flip through recent cell phone pics and remember what we’ve been doing lately.
L: We were thrilled that D1’s travel schedule meant we got to spend the evening with him! R: Walked into Barnes & Noble and found a children’s concert going on. Bonus! We couldn’t drag Ro away, she watched the whole thing. Her sister flitted back and forth between the Rainbow Magic books and the concert:
L + R: Casually said they could have a "fun bath" if they cleaned up their disaster of a room. Have never seen them move so fast. (Ree left):
L: The girls make themselves instant oatmeal for breakfast Every Single Day. You’d think they’d get tired of it?! Ro prefers Peaches and Cream, and Ree prefers Bananas and Cream. R: Ro can make a dessert last longer than anyone in the world. If there was an Olympic competition for slowest dessert eater she would take the gold. (It drives her sister CRAZY.)
L: Amusing ourselves by taking an unsuccessful family portrait in the mirror. Hm, will have to work on that angle. R: Just went in some new (to us) store called Justice and they screamed and said "Justice we LOVE you!!!" OMG. Why is everything so insanely expensive in here?!
L: Washing machine gave up the ghost and while we were waiting for repair the dirty laundry in the garage reached what TubaDad called "world record amounts." Ugh. Will never catch up... R: Speaking of TubaDad, here’s how he spends a lot of his time:
L + R: Little bro Bobby was in town for one evening and we had a ball with him. The girls taught him how to play Sleeping Queens:
The girls sure do love their electronic Cookie dogs that they got for Christmas (Ro on the right in both pics). They carry them everywhere. L in WelaWear, and R in St. Patrick’s Day garb:
L + R: Some of the colors we’re using in our kitchen reno. Dark wood cabinets, cream and gray subway tile backsplash, cream and brown travertine floor tiles, really veiny grey and gold granite (seen in the R pic), stainless steel appliances. Still not in the demolition stage yet, so everyone’s still smiling. I think things will start being ripped out the first week in April:
