A whole week went by and I didn't document the kids' lives on the blog! I hate when I do that! What can I say? A 3 year old and 20 month old twins (today! omg!) who are absolutely all boy and wild men keep me on my toes. But we had a nice week - school, a few trips to the pool, and a fun playdate!
This weekend somehow became the weekend of birthday parties. We were invited to 4 parties in one day - one in Edmond, one in Tulsa, and 2 in Yukon. We couldn't make the Edmond or one of the Yukons, due to timing : (
We got up early and headed to Tulsa for my precious niece, Ava's 4th birthday party. 4 years. Wow. It was Ava's conception that was so difficult for me, as David and I had been trying already for over a year with no success. I told myself that no matter what, at least I knew that by the time that baby was born I would be pregnant. I wasn't. But when that baby was born, I didn't care about anything but how happy I was to be an aunt to this darling girl! And then I got pregnant the next month, and our girls are 9 months apart!
Sweet Stella! Little butterball : )
After the party, Brooke and I and all the kids drove back to the city and the husbands stayed and played golf. Thankfully the kids slept in the car! We changed and headed to party #2!
Came home and everyone crashed out!
Sunday, we tried out a new church and liked it. I, halfway joking, told David - we need to keep coming to this church if nothing else but an hour of free childcare ; )
We came home and napped and did a lot of playing the rest of the afternoon!
Made our weekly pilgrimage to Qdoba...
And made a trip to the pool!
Sucking our thumb is hard in a puddle jumper.
Between his tiny, peanut frame, long, sweet curly hair, love a pink cat that he takes everywhere, and a name like Braley that could go either way...bless him...he gets mistaken for a girl on occasion.
The finished product. They followed my instructions and only did a little trim. We love his sweet curls. It just needed a little tidying up ; ) And unlike this photo shows...he did great. He was just mad here because he wanted my phone.
And last - my latest concoction for desserts for the kids. They go NUTS for vanilla wafers, peanut butter, and a banana. And I might or might not have polished a few of these off myself.
Have a good week, folks!
