It's FRIDAY and I'm so glad! It wasn't an awful week but it was long. Sick kids, cuts, falls, travel.... it seems like we've had it here! So here is to the weekend.

I have two friends coming to visit this weekend and I KNOW that we will laugh a lot, eat a lot, shop a lot, and then eat some more. It's what we do well. :)

PS-We did have a great time in Michigan last week, pics (some, I didn't take enough!!) to come!

*pictures from a second visit to the commons. See the bottom pic? Grace was SO desperate to play with these kids. It about made my heart crack. And the sweet little girl ended up playing with her all morning. :)

What we're doing

We've been enjoying checking out our new library. I love that my kids love to read. Grace wants to read all of the books with us then she'll grab one in a quiet moment and "read" them herself.
Graham's books are on a shelf going to the play room. He's constantly taking them down. I would mind except for how sweet he is looking through them.
home improvement! My hubs is very talented, if you didn't know. He put up a new oven hood for us, today he fixed the hot water upstairs, added a light/fan in our bathroom, now he's downstairs fixing a leak in the utility sink. I love that he can fix just about anything!

Here's a look into life at my house these days... You probably can't see there is a hairbrush also in the mix on the floor!
I'm trying to do some school activities with Grace. This rainbow was fun and easy for her to make.
We've had 50-60 degree weather this week so none of these beauties have been happening but when it gets cold again we'll be enjoying them once more!
And we always enjoy him! He's signing please and more on a regular basis now. Not too many words yet.

She is forever in a land of make believe. I am either "dearie", "the mama" or some other name that I can usually never pronounce! She is either Hannah or more often as of late Alicia (said with a spanish sound!) from Go Diego Go!

Happy Friday!
