I had to snap a picture of Brayden's backpack because it kills me. Soon it's going to be so heavy he won't be able to hold it up LOL
We headed to the library for story time, but first the girls had to play on the computers. I am happy to report Avery actually sat still and was very entertained during story time!
While Ella was at school Miss A and I decided to organize and purge our giant utensil drawer. Needless to say it took 3x's as long with a toddlers help :)
We managed to play more foosball - Ella is getting really good!
And of course there was plenty of dollhouse playtime in there too
The girls have been having a BLAST playing with this fake make up my Mom got them for Christmas. It is seriously the best! We use to let Ella play with real makeup but that became a disaster real quick once Avery would join in so this is just perfect. I couldn't recommend this play make up more!
So Thursday was Brayden's 2nd basketball game, or so I thought - I don't know why but originally when I looked at the schedule I just assumed all this games were Thursday nights at 7pm but it turns out there's some Monday games in there too. So yeah, we completely missed the game earlier in the week and showed up Thursday to an empty court. Brayden still had a blast playing with Rick and it was nice for him to get some practice in, at least it wasn't a total waste
Some nights before bed Avery hops into Ella's bed and wants to sleep in there for the night. It's soooooooooooo cute and I know these two can't wait to have their first sleepover. Right after I snapped this pic, Rick came into the room and Avery immediately pretended she was sleeping; it was hysterical.
Usually after we put the kids to bed I can see from under the door that Ella has turned her light on. I always peak in and see her at her desk "writing" in her journal and it's just such a sweet moment. I swear sometimes I look at her and think I'm going to blink and she's going to be 16 doing this
Ella was playing dr on our new unicorn because her legs weren't working. She even wrote out her dr notes for the unicorn to take. I love how well Ella pretend plays!
Every other day I make a smoothie for me and Miss A and she is all about helping! (no surprise there!)
Friday night the kids had pizza and then we headed downstairs to play some games. Sometimes it's really hard to play a game the right way with a tornado toddler around :)
We put the kids to bed then me and the hubby had a date night at home. We made steaks and I made these super yummy potatoes I saw on Pinterest. We watched the new Bourne movie and I'm pretty sure we both passed out by 9:30 on the couch, ha!
Saturday was decent out so we told the kids to gear up and go play outside during quiet time. They realized there was a huge block of ice inside the water table so I gave them some spoons and some sunglasses and told them to have at it. That lasted all but 20 minutes then swung on the swings for a little and came in
Later in the day our friends came over and the kids all played really nicely together. Us adults got into some heated games of Left Right Center and me and the hubs came out on top :) It was a fun night but Sunday morning came too quick.
Sunday we did nothing all morning and it was so nice. We headed to my in laws in the afternoon and hung out there the rest of the day. We got home to relax and then put the kids to bed.
Brayden is off today so we're heading over to his buddies house for a play date. He has a little sister Ella's age so it's always nice when we all get together.
Hope you all have a great Monday!
