I tell you this girl is too smart for her own good. She loves to get "uppy" on the couch but is just a little too short to do it on her own. She figured out today she can use the wipe box to stand on to get up there. If you take it away she looks for it and puts it back. She doesn't play very safe on the couch: running from one end to another, so scary!
I have a love/hate relationship with Aaron's work truck: Love that we own it (no payments), hate that it tends to break down all the time. I swear every part on it has been replaced at least once including the motor. Needless to say Aaron didn't make it to work on this day, he went grocery shopping and ran errands with Reese and me.

Keely and I went to Country Fair Mall today to do some flea market shopping. We had so much fun but needed more time to look at everything. We both found tons of cool, fun stuff. Keely's prize find was these two old blocks with her hubby's initials on them.
The kids get so excited when we visit with Jackson and Jeffrey, they have a lot of fun but because they are super close in age there's also a lot of fighting. It's funny as soon as they leave they all want to be back together again . . . every single time. When this visit ended (with a big fight at the end), Caden says later on, "Why did my best buddy, Jackson, have to leave?" Kids.
Most days I don't forget to take photos for my 365 Project but today I did. I think at 11:30 pm I remembered. Of course since we moved Ethan to a big boy toddler bed mixed with the wonderful time change, he doesn't go to sleep very easily. At 11:30 he was still up so he was my subject.

Ethan earned a trip to Grammy & Papa's house all by himself today for behaving well at school. Reese took a long nap so I got some creative time all by myself to work on Reese's quilt. It's done too . . . in the washing machine right now. The easiest and quickest quilt I ever made.
We had a picnic on the living room floor tonight. Trying to do more creative things this month. The kids loved it, ate lots, and nothing got spilled. Ethan and Reese must work on the "family style" of eating. They both feel the need to help themselves to everything in a bowl, we never eat this way at the table because of this problem. Ethan has always been this way, he was robbed of food in the womb and he's still affected by it.
We took the kids to Bounce Town today. They had a blast in all those blow up things. It's very loud and hard to keep track of your 4 little kids with only 2 adults. Most parents park themselves at a table and the kids just run -- we don't do that. We lasted about 90 minutes before I was couldn't stand the BIG (too big in my opinion) almost running over everyone so we left. It wore them out!
I am working on learning my camera. I spent an hour reading and playing with my camera. Addison is an eager model. I was practicing on aperture and depth of field. See how the background is all blurry and she's in focus -- that's depth of field. However maybe I should have spent 10 seconds fixing the model's hair first, huh?
