We have had such a fun-filled weekend! So lucky that my sister Katie and her 1yr old baby Aspen could come and play for a few days! It’s been quite a full visit… we have done a little shopping at the mall and even Ikea… and Katie managed to get tons of scrapbooking done! (I have lots ‘on hand’)…
The whole having a one-year-old in the house has been a bit of an ‘eyeopener’! I find with Capri, I usually have a few minutes in between checking on her, and she is fine… usually can’t do too much damage or get too far! Aspen on the other hand is walking, and can disappear in seconds… and found playing in the toilet bowl or dog dish in the blink of an eye! I am going to have to do some baby-proofing for sure!
Friday night, we let the boys have friends sleep over, and they opted to sleep on the roof-top deck… the weather is perfect for it… in the upper 80’s over night these days… we grilled some hamburgers and made our own little versions of homemade ice cream sandwiches.
**I am planning on having these for quincy’s birthday party… the idea being that you choose a type of cookie (I had oreos and chips ahoy), choose the kind of ice cream… put a little scoop between 2 cookies, and squoosh it down a bit… roll the sides in ‘magic shell’ choc. And then in sprinkles… they need to go in the freezer for about an hour before eating… man, they turn out so cute , and are a great little treat! Just had to share! –glad I did a little preview!
The little girls next door were having a sleep over as well, and kept the boys up until just past 1 o’clock and the az sun got them up about 5:45 am… so I had a very short night! And I am feeling it right about now!
Today, I got the boys MUCH needed haircuts, and then we spent a good part of the day in the pool! It was capri’s first experience in the pool, and she was all about the splashing! I am afraid that is going to translate to splashing baths! It was such a nice day until about 3pm when a hard core dust storm blew threw! So fun just to sit by the pool and watch the kids play! So much fuN! I wish I lived closer to my family! I miss them so much, but always cherish the time that we have together!
Ok, whew.. I am so tired… thanks for voting for kristy! I will report what I hear, if anything about her outcome!
Big “HI” to grandma and grandpa… collin, cam and rane… we miss you!
