Miss Thing and Baby Sister with Bling. (Hand-me-down bling from cousins. ;)  )

The girls and I went to a jewelry party this afternoon. It’s the second one we’ve attended in the last 2 months. The second one where I made it out of the party without buying a thing. Is that terrible? The girls are getting a good lesson in, “Yes, we have the money but we have to make decisions about what to spend our money on.”

“Like food for all of us?”

Yep! Pretty much!

I do feel slightly guilty attending the parties without purchasing, but it’s either that or not go at all. What would you do? What would you want your guests to do?

My littles wanted aprons like Mama this afternoon. (Note: Mama remembers an apron about 1% of the time. I was wearing my favorite black and white shirt and we were having spaghetti.) They were pretty cute, so I asked Mr. 9 to take a few photos.  Hours later when I scrolled through photos, these are what I found.

What in the world?! 1) I did not know my camera could do that. 2) How did HE know my camera could do that?! 3) Yes, it kind of looks like I am sitting on my daughter’s head. 4) I assure you I am not.

And with that, have a great week! Win or lose, the Royals are DONE making me stay up late after Wednesday, so I’ll need another excuse for being so tired, I suppose.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Muffins

We love all things peanut butter around here, and are so completely grateful for no nut allergies in our family! These not-too-sweet muffins are great for breakfast or an after school snack. The littles think it’s fun to have their favorite sandwich in muffin form.

You Can’t See Me

I'll add a photo later for effect, but use your imagination. Update: Staged Photo Last night we were watching the Royals when Miss 2 appeared for the 327th time. I put her back in her bed. Again. And again. Miss 11 was up watching with … [Keep reading…]

Toddler Whispers

nap

This afternoon when Mr. 4 and Miss 2 were finished napping, Baby J and I were not. She was snoozing away, elevated on my chest in my bed, and I was enjoying every blissful second. Knowing that either way it had to end, I invited the two littles to … [Keep reading…]

Resourceful. Strong. Determined.

"At least she's resourceful.  And strong. And determined." he said, a smile creeping in. "How did she get the lid open? Are you sure she drug it across the floor?" I don't know, and Yes! Yes, she did! This is what we walked in on an hour … [Keep reading…]

This will sound completely ridiculous to some of you, but one of my biggest worries about having another baby when we found out we were pregnant last fall was that I knew life was only going to get busier because our oldest is now in junior high. In … [Keep reading…]
