Things are getting back to normal around here......well that is such a relative term.... My mom and dad left for their home in Ohio on Monday, We were sad to see them go, and so so so thankful for their willingness to drop everything and come and stay with our kids.
Iley went back to school on Monday! Just 11 days after open heart surgery! She had a hole the size of a nickel that had to have a patch to close, and another hole closed, and a valve repaired. This little girl is one tough cookie!
Houston....we have a problem......the new/extra balloon was a life saver....BUT.....the old balloon is going down down down......so is now being abandoned for the one that floats.....this could end up like the hot dog and bun problem....if you let it....it could go on and on....just sayin. And have I mentioned before that I have a strong dislike for night roaming helium balloons? They are left alone to wander through the house like silent ghosts....about head level....moving on the air currents......they will give you a nasty fright if you meet up with one in the middle of a bathroom run at 2:00am....like a silent stalker.....
Headed to the Christmas program for Harrison and Sherman. Have I mentioned that these boys are crazy about their lil sisters? I did not tell them to pose this way! The feeling is mutual....most of the time. Nice sunset out the window too:)
This is the 7th and 8th grade choir. Harrison is in the back row with the pink tie. Can you believe I didn't get a picture of Sherman's class! I was so aggravated!
And then Sherman came home and made this......can you guess what it is?
How about now?
It's a Kazoo.....a giant Kazoo. What kind of mind looks at a stack of homework papers, an empty pringles can, and a straw and says....I know......I'll make a Kazoo???? He's an original:)
Two silly girls.....
Yes....that is saran wrap around Iley's neck. This was her "toy" of choice today. ??? I don't even know where it came from.
They gathered all these lovely props and signed/said "Picture mom". This one was totally unprompted by me! I definitely would not have added the props:)
The flower is even backwards:)
Iley had encountered snow up in Minnesota. She was not at all impressed, we couldn't persuade her to go out! She didn't even like the snowmen someone made outside the hospital. A car all covered in snow went by under our window and she said
"ice cream?" No.....it's snow. It's cold like ice cream though:)
And.....the saran wrap some how ended up in the tub! It was like spa wrap.....draped over their tummies.....across their backs.....wrapped around their heads...so lovely wet and sticky.......it about went down the drain!!!
