too good to wait until next week...

P was helping daddy clean out his car so I thought I'd get some video and all about P is revealed...

mid-week memories vol. 2

Look out Blog's two weeks in a row! I haven't written this many posts in months! We've had a fun week and the best news is that Dunkin Donuts has made a come back to the mid-west. that makes us all happy...

the weather has been warm enough for front-yard picnics, bike rides and swinging! all things the kids LOVE! now we're just waiting for the grass to turn green...hopefully that will happen before Memorial Day.
T and P have fun playing "nap time"...I'm not going to complain about that game!
her new look...dispite any forward progress, I am still making a run at potty training P, and this is her "at home" attire.
this weeks favorites...I can't get these adorable green shoes off P, she refuses to wear anything may be saying, "really she's 18 months old, surely she doesn't pick out her own shoes." But let me set the record straight...for months this girl has had an opion about pretty much everything, and she's not afraid to share it.
T went on a date with daddy and came back with Buzz and Woody! they now top the charts as being the favs in the toy chest.

until next week...

mid-week memories vol. 1

here we go again...I am going to try to be committed to the blog again.
I have recently seen in the "blog world" people giving a weekend summary including thoughts, events and pictures from their weekend, which I think is a great idea. My problem with that is that every weekend looks exactly the same for us right now...Joe works on refinishing the basement and I entertain the kids with various activities. Nothing too exciting about that, so I thought I would expanded the review to cover an entire week, then there might actually be at least one fun thing to report or document with either picture or video.

My goals
1. To update the blog every Wednesday
2. To take at least one picture a day
3. and take one video a week.

and that's it...I have to keep it manageable or I'll quit!

These pics are more that a week old, but this is week 1 so I can include whatever I want...right!?

We love the playroom at the Transportation Museum...and my little character loves to dress up.

With the basement remodel we make frequent trips to Lowe's...the kids love the "tractors."

and because the work in the basement is loud, we've been spending a lot of time (at least nap times) at my parent's house. Piper goes strait for their reading glasses...and Toby loves reading books with Lala... (oh, and I love drinks from Sonic)

Swim Lessons! We have been taking swim lessons for a few weeks and they both LOVE it! while I was getting ready on Friday, P came around the corner wearing her swim diaper on her head! She is a character.

It's warming up!!!!!!!!! and now I can't get Toby out of shorts. and what Toby does, Piper also wants to do. The other morning they were VERY quiet and in T's room, then out they came...both in Toby's shorts (he helped Piper put on a pair!)

Joe had to go to Indy for work this week and as he was getting packed T wanted to go also, so Joe helped him get into work clothes! Isn't he the cutest "working boy" you've ever seen!

So that's it for now...have a good one and we'll meet back here in one week! (hopefully)
