seriously busy

Elijah brought home his first 4 star this week. From what I can tell grading varies from school to school but where he goes that is a huge deal.

Elijah also danced in fundraiser this weekend.

Grandma and Grandpa have learned to skype.

We took cup cakes to Emily's class this Thursday.

monkeys and frogs oh my

Elijah was 3.5 when we moved into the house. He is now 7.5. I said I was going to do his bathroom with the lovely yellow tile in duckies when we moved in. I bought one little duckie toothbrush holder then nothing really. Also our towels many of which we've had since we got married 9.5 years ago are getting stinky. Oh and my parents are coming today. So with all that I decided today was get stuff for the bathroom day. Emily and I went to Kohls mostly bc she announced that she needed to potty and that was the closest store that I knew would have towels and an easy to find potty. Turned out great though. Emily and Elijah both love monkeys and frogs but I'd never seen them together in a set much less a set with yellow as a main color. I bought a bit more then planned but I think it looks good. Now we just need to pick a color and paint.

Neil took the kids to the library yesterday while I went to the grocery store. When they got back Elijah read Emily his pokemon book.

This other one goes with the last set. Its the Cinderella skirt I made her. Yes I'm one of those cray sewing mamas who is making her daughter a bunch of new clothes for Disney bc she really can't be not a princess at any moment while there right?

I know I know at least it hasn't been 6 months

Yes Chrissie and Erin that title was for you two. I do wish you'd update.

As for us all is well here. I learned how to freezer paper stencil. Emily and Elijah both did some art in school. I also made Emily some cuddly new nighties. I owe her two more but nobody remind her ok. We've been playing outside including the lovely shot of Elijah pushing Emily with his butt. Oh and that is Emily in her dance gear picking dresses out of my heirloom sewing book. Elijah got his first note of sorts from a girl. He also got a pokimon hat. I'm sure there will be more when I get them all up so just make up your own caption. Feel free to share it for that matter. I still have more to come but they are on the camera

Not Happening

Don't worry there are more coming but here are 3 cute ones.

Emily has been obsessed with bike riding lately and its finally cool enough to go out.

We went to the International Festival on Saturday and Elijah whose super power is getting randomly selected to do cool things got invited to assist our local news cooking lady during a demo. He was thrilled and did such a good job. The funniest part though was when she was talking about how cute he was and said she just might take him home with her. His responce "Um that is not going to be happening."
