art class

this week has been spent mostly at home as all three of us girls have been sick. there has been a lot of pajama time, book reading, and just being inside. it's also been REALLY hot here. here are some pics of today. the "art class" was happening while i was cleaning the kitchen-kate's favorite thing to do is create-color, glue, cut, stickers, etc. amelia is sure learning quickly and loves to take the caps off the markers before mommy sees. we went to the park for a pinic lunch with tim. we were pleasantly surprised to be there all alone. i guess that's what you get when you are suckers and go out at the hottest part of the day on a really hot day:)

ready for make-up

i think amelia is ready for make-up. what do you think?

40th anniversary

tim and i are so blessed to both have parents who have just celebrated 40 years of being faithful in their marriage. oddly enough, they celebrate their anniversaries one day apart. we celebrated my parents anniversary while we were all in spokane together in august, and celebrated tim's parent's this last weekend. thanks dad and mom (both sets) for setting awesome examples of Christ-centered marriages.

fun in the sun

here are some random pictures of the hot days that we've had lately. please don't think i'm white trash because i let my kids run around in their underwear and diapers (it's really so that the popiscle they're eating doesn't stain their clothes:)

you know your kids are tired when...

they ask for a quiet time and cry when you tell them they can't have one. we went swimming out at a lagoon today with my sister-in-law, the girl's cousins, and my mother-in-law. the kids had an absoulute blast, but were totally trashed after spending 5 hours in the sun and water. when we got home at 5 tonight, kate literally begged for a quiet time in her room. i guess we finally wore her out:)

wet blankie

the other night i was in the kitchen cleaning up dinner while amelia was playing in the bathtub (please don't call cps on me:). when i went in to check on her, this is how i found her. i guess she needed her blankie, so she helped herself out of the tub, found her blankie, then let herself back in. glad to know she could do all this by herself:)
