Just Relaxing

Last week we had the girls on our bed just relaxing, laughing, and lounging around.  It was such a precious time.  Avery is enjoying a Popsicle (her new favorite thing) and Madi is just hanging out.  I just loved this pic.

Small Group BBQ

Last night we had our small group over for a BBQ... so, imagine 10 adults and 13 kiddos!  We had a total blast even amidst the chaos.  Here's a few pics... I think the kids favorite part was setting off a few fireworks & sparklers.  And Avery loved it, and when we tried to put her to bed she didn't want to stay in her room (of course not, there was a party going on!).

3 Months and Counting

Our sweet little girl loves to smile... every time I look at her she smiles back at me.  Can't believe she is three months... actually my lack of sleep feels like three months.

Tie Dye Rocks

One of Avery's new favorite crafts to do is these easy and fun tie dye rocks.  Her favorite part of it is going on a "rock hunt" to find the biggest and best rocks to color.  Then you just heat them on a cookie sheet in the oven.  Pull them out one at a time, put them on foil, and color them with crayons.  The wax melts and when to mix it together it swirls to make them look like this.  Pretty cool (and cheap!).
After she got done coloring the rocks, we put them out in the garden.  A very cool addition!

Campfire Hat

This was such a fun one for us to make together.  I think Avery's favorite part was eating the marshmallows as we were making it.  It was super easy and she laughs when she wears it.

Tutu Time

Getting the newspaper for dad in her new favorite outfit.
Avery and I have been on a craft kick. I went to a great website ( where I could search for crafts by age.  She have LOVED it!  Here's her in her new tutu we made together.  Our little princess. Pin It

It's 7 Mom!

So we have begun trying to teach Avery to stay in her bedroom in the morning until the clock says "7".  A few days in and we are still trying to make this work.  But tonight she surprised me by coming out of her room a few minutes ago and when I asked her why she was out of her room she said, "Look mom!  It says 7!"  So, I tried to explain the whole "not until it's morning" thing... classic.

Back to the drawing board. Pin It

Little Laughs

Madison has started laughing and I caught a few little giggles this morning.  It was precious and I love her cute little smile and her dimples.  She really is a sweet girl!  and... it's good to have a few laughs from her after so many nights of sleeplessness.

Bugs Bugs Bugs

Avery and I have been crafting lately and it has been a blast. The past few days we made a bunch of bugs which for a whopping $3 provided hours of entertainment. Avery was so excited to make these and keeps asking to make more "ants."

Delinquent Dad

This morning I woke up to a hysterical story... Brian had gotten up with Avery this morning and fell asleep on the couch for just a few minutes. In the meantime, Avery found her stash of nail polish and proceeded to "paint" her body. Brian woke up in shock and cleaned up her hands and feet (we only had a couple of spots on the carpet!). So when I came out after I woke up, Avery ran up to me and said, "Mom! Look at my pretty toe-polish!" I burst into laughter looking at the artwork on her legs and thought I would share it with you... ENJOY! The handiwork of my little artist.

By the way... Brian was the one who suggested entitling this blog "delinquent dad."

And Madi is looking at her like, "What in the world!?!" Pin It

Splish Splash

Yesterday we enjoyed Noontime Notes in Old Town and the kids had a blast splashing in the "water park"... although Avery barely touched the water. Her and Malachi just squealed the whole time and little Rachel spent her time hovering over the spray soaking her little booty. It was fun!
