Sleeping Beauty II

I think she just doesn't get enough sleep, ever. She is always falling asleep in the funnest places. In the second picture she just curled up after her bath and feel asleep among the clothes that needed folded.

Rainy day fun

This is what my kids like to do when it rains.

From the garden

I love this meal. Green beans and potatoes. Only in this case we have green, purple and wax beans. Purple, yellow and red potatoes. My kids love it and I thought it was very colorful.

Do you ever have a broccoli stalk like this? I thought it was a bit over size for the norm. Not to mention this...

giant purple bean. I loved these beans, and they were so big. They turn green when you cook them, but I really loved the flavor.

Just as a disclaimer the broccoli and potatoes
did not come from my garden,
I wish they had, but they did not.

Too cute

He is just so irresistible, and he loves popcorn.

Tiny had to have his new favorite toy to nap with. I think he lost interest and has moved on to other things already. Too bad for the hard metal pan.

Grandma's Cupboard

This was in my house growing up and now it is in my house. I love it. It was my grandma's. It really is called a library and I love how much room it has to stick thing in. It is great for the mail because it has slots and small drawers for the stamps, checkbook, and letters. Now the sides are filled with dishes, but my girls thought getting inside was great.

Curb appeal

They are reading by the road waiting for me to
return from my run.
I just love this, I hope they always love to read.

Oh the mind of a 5 year old. Sinclaire made a "bus" out of her peanut butter sandwich and thought it was hilarious. She is so creative and has tons of fun with it.

Happy Birthday! I have a 5 year old

Sinclaire wanted a rainbow cake so this is what we came up with. It was actually the easiest cake to make and hardly any extra time at all. She loved it. And loved helping me make it.

She had been asking to go to the Children's Museum for two weeks so we decided to go on her birthday. We went with a few friends and had a great time. I love that place. Tiny is a bit challenging to corral, but we had a fun time and discovered some new things that we did not know were there before.

Oh just can not believe I have a five year old. I can believe that she has been here for five years, I just can't believe I have survived it. I would like to say that in those five years I learned patience, but I am not sure that I am there yet. As I try to look at the world through the eyes of a five year old, I am presented with challenges and new set of things to conquer, and not all of them are fun. But I love playing games with her and hearing her giggle at the silly things. She loves to read, paint, and play puppy with her sister. And she loves to carry Tiny around.

Running Running Tripping Falling

Well, I have twisted my ankle twice in the last week so I told myself that I couldn't run anymore if I couldn't pay attention enough to hurt myself. So now I am taking a break from it to do other activities. We will see what happens with that later.
