Kid stuff and a layout

I love this face

And I love this face

Even when it looks like this

But it sure was nice to spend a day this week with just this girl

The boys had a sleep over at Grammie and Grampie's so just us girls got the day to ourselves. The house was so quiet and peaceful. No crying, no fighting. We did laundry, ran some errands, B had a nap and I watched General Hospital and scrapbooked...ahh, bliss. Of course, they were exhausted by the time I got to them from staying up late and going on an adventure hike with Grampie in the morning. Bedtime...well, let's just say that was far from fun. And then Kieran was up half the night sick with a fever and B was up just for fun I think so then next day I paid dearly for my day of bliss, lol! Never comes without strings. I'm sure I'd do it again though, haha.

The boys have done really well in their swimming lessons. Today is the last day and I know they are going to miss it. It's amazing to see how much they improve, especially at Riley's level, in the course of 2 weeks.

Riley has informed us that he's going to buy one of the houses next door to us when he grows up. And he's going to have a bunny that he keeps on a leash to eat the dandelions :) When asked how old he was going to be when all this happened he said, "I'd say 16. No, maybe 12." And to get the money he's going to go to the bank for three days and get 108 (not sure if that's dollars, pennies, what, but 108 was the number). Funny boy :)

Bridget is now in the "what's that?" phase. She asks about everything :) It's cute and not yet annoying, but I'm sure that will come, haha. She's learning more everyday and she's just the cutest little imp ever, heehee.

Here is my second layout for the LCOM Sketch team. This is based on Tara's awesome sketch :) For more takes on the sketch check out the blog :)

I'm finally digging out and scrapping some of my Greece pictures. I think it's because I'm too lazy to get more pictures printed, lol. I really, really want a photo printer so I can just print pictures as I need them rather than editing and uploading a bunch at once. It's on my wish list :)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend :)
