This is half way under my bed
Eating chocolate is also exhausting after a demanding day at church. He insisted on wearing the Spiderman jacket the whole time even though it was 90 degrees.
He did this whole puzzle by himself, on the carpet even. He was so proud to show me an I honestly thought his siter helped him until I found her sleeping. M has had to do this puzzle about 4 times a day since then.
"Puppy" is a popular game at our house and usually involves me being licked against my will. This iteration involved cheese puffs in a dog bowl and by the state of the water, seeing how quickly they turn to mush.
One of the aunties was going to get M a paw patrol toy and wanted to make sure it was one we didn't have already. I was napping so I delegated the task to J and handed her my phone. The video she took was priceless, but I appreciated her organization skills lining them up and categorizing them by character and size.
Husband took M for Fathers and Sons campout so I took J out on the town and let her wear any of my make up she wanted. When I asked what fancy restaurant she wanted to go to, she said Panda Express. After my veto she suggested Old McDonalds. I also vetoed that and said it wasn't fancy enough. She wanted to invite her cousin and Auntie for our girls night and I agreed to that for sure. When relating the funny choices of fancy restaurants to my sister, Ellie pipes in, "I know a fancy restaurant! How about Dairy Queen?" Big Sis couldn't come, but I thought Cheesecake Factory had enough ambiance and was casual enough for two little girls to have fun. They were simply delighted with the cheesecake options. Note the hands.
They ate two bites a piece of this cheesecake.
The dollar theater was next door so we saw Kung Fu Panda 3 afterwards.
I finally finished this beast of a quilt. Only took me two or three years and new sewing machine. My friend Janette ironed and pinned the edges for me when I didn't think I could rally the energy to finish it. And because I don't have a full size ironing board, because ironing is overrated.
She loves it though and it was made with material and jeans I already had so the only cost was the 5 spools of thread and the 4 needles it took. I do not recommend this pattern to anyone. It is a devil. I did an ombre pattern on the back that turned out pretty.
J made such cute flowers for her end of preschool celebration. I sort of want to start crying when I think about how this is an end of a season for us. We are locked into a school schedule for the next 20 years. Time goes far too fast.
Here is her soul sister Megan and another friend Emmie
We adore Mrs Edith and are so sad this is the last year she's teaching preschool. J has learned so much and never once cried getting dropped off.
