Playing Catch up January 8 - January 11, 2010

I got busy! These days I've been trying to spend more quality time with the family on the weekends. This weekend was no different.

Friday January 8, 2010
The middle had a friend over after school for two hours. It was her first real play date with her best friend from school at our house. They played dressup and tea party and got to have a snack in her room which was so messy exciting. At the end of the afternoon we got all bundled up to bring her friend home. They're looking forward to many, many more visits. Nothing like a best friend!

We had TWO birthday parties to go to that day. The first was at 1pm and was for the oldest. I didn't know that she was already at the "drop 'em off and come back later" birthday party age! I was a little nervous because she's a shy kid and because well, she's my baby! She did just fine, of course. The next party was at 5:30 for my friend Danielle's son Levi. He was in the oldest's class in preschool so we've known them for a while. She's such a sweetheart, she managed to get the local Children's Museum to open up after hours for the party (after a snow "storm" scheduling rearrangement"). The kids had fun but they were so tired as it went past their bedtime. For the birthday kiddos, we made card using cardstock, chipboard letters, brads and more to embellish them. It was a fun little project and I think the end result came out fantastic, although I wish I had had a Happy Birthday stamp or rub-on instead of handwriting it.

I DID take a picture on Sunday. It was a hectic day, what with the playoffs (next year, Patriots! Next year!) and then trying to clean up from the weekend. Unfortunately I took it on my cell phone and have yet to figure out how to get them off there and onto here. It's a picture of my girls sitting at breakfast, ready to go to the game. The baby even has her game jersey on. As soon as I figure it out, I'll upload it and post it here.!

Today is an easy day. My oldest is at school, the middle has a day off and the baby is being a very good girl haha. It's so nice to see the two little ones playing well together, because most of the time the baby can't stand her sister. No idea why, must be sibling rivalry. Right now they're upstairs playing tea party and making a mess, listening to Taylor Swift. But earlier, they sat down and used watercolors together. This was the littlest ones first time really using a paintbrush and coloring, I had some good light coming in from the windows, and decided this perfectly represents our day, even if it's only a few hours into it. (Check out that tongue! So funny, she does that whenever she's being creative!)
