My week in phone pics!

Here is my week, summed up in the photos I take each day with my phone.  I'm not one of the cool kids with an iPhone, but I'm using the pixlr-o-matic app on my droid to have some fun with the pictures, an I'm loving it!

Now that the kids are feeling better, I'm back to snapping photos frivolously, so there are a lot more pictures this week!


Playing jump-out-and-peek-a-boo from the tent is hours of good fun for my sneaky little twerpies!



And, Austin getting in some snuggles with Scout.  Scout looks unexcited, but he is crazy about these moments.  I think he was a lap dog in a past life and doesn't understand why he doesn't get to curl up with us on the couch.

My new little walker and I were dancing our booties off in the kitchen.  It's sort of Daddy's thing to blast some tunes during meal times and teach the kids table manner that my grandmother would shaker her finger at.  Earlier this week, I stole a page from his book and we wiggled and giggled all over the kitchen "dance floor" to everything from Brittany Spears, to Pearl Jam to Bob Seager!

Midnight snack anyone?  After the hubby worked an unexpected 17 hour day, I made Chicken Alfredo for dinner at eleven at night, and it was delicious!

 We go to Target just to play dress up!  Happy Easter, from my little bunnies!  Normally we just play dress up and take adorable photos for Facebook in Target's Dollar Spot, but these ears were too cute to pass up and came home with us.  If I can keep them on them, they are going to make for some ADORABLE Easter pictures!

And, we walk.  Trying to keep up with my goal to take the whole gang for a walk each and every day.  Mostly, I've been failing miserably, but this week, we've made it on a record number of walks...4.

The twerpies settling in at what was there first time at  a "daycare."  Earlier this week, I came to the conclusion that I was not going to get to work out unless I had a gym that also had a daycare, so I took my too chubby butt down to the local Tennis Club to see what it was all about.  Turns out, I'm totally, madly, in love with everything but the membership dues.  They agreed to give me a 30 trial pass to make sure that I could make a routine of it with the kids and make sure the kids didn't mind being left at the daycare, since they've never been to anything like that before.  So far (three days), it's worked out really well, the daycare folks say my kids are angels (DUH!) and I love having the two hours each day to work out and getting a longgggg shower.

One very happy little boy is finally himself again.  His new trick is stomping his feet all over the house.  It makes him giggle, especially if I join in!  In the background you'll see all the things turned on their sides or upside down, which is evidence that he is finally back to his usual self!

We've been having some strange moody weather.  A bit humid, always looks like it's about to rain, and just when you think it's going to start pouring, here comes the sunshine!  Yesterday, we took advantage of the little bit of sun we got and went outside to play.  Makayla fed what little birdseed was left from our last outdoor playtime to the dog, and Austin scavenged for new rocks and twigs.

That's it for this week!  Hope you all have a nice week and a better weekend!

  16. When my hubs is off on a business trip I always end up cooking late or getting up extra early to get dinner ready, otherwise- it's pizza. All day. Every day :)
