Gotta love Texas weather!

Yesterday it was an absolutely beautiful weather. It was in the mid-70s with a light breeze. It actually reminded me of summers in Alaska! The kids and I filled the bird feeder with new food. Within a few hours a little family had found its way there. What a better way to spend a nice afternoon than doing sidewalk art? Will thought it was great fun to draw a line from the garage all the way to the end of the driveway. He and the little girl neighbor E were having a contest as to see whose was the longest. They finally decided they were both "super duper long".
Just had to note the super fuzzy "flappers" Livi has on. She calls them her "princess flappers". Okay, now on to today.....barely 50 degrees and pretty chilly. I thought it was going to be another super nice day. I sent Will to school in a short sleeve tshirt and basically a windbreaker! Yeah, fill out that mother of the year nomination right now!

So what's a mom to do when there is no more nice weather to do sidewalk chalk??

Buy a bucket of these little foam shapes with holes in them. This was good for an afternoon of entertainment. We sorted them by color, shape, made patterns, and finally threaded them on the cake tester thingy from Pampered Chef!! Whew hoo, lots of fun.

See the little short sleeved shirt I sent Will in today? He had a special assembly at school today called the Zoo show. They brought in a bunch of animals from the Austin zoo. This shirt has a rhino on it, so he wanted to wear it. I thought it would be warm enough. Oh well, welcome to last week, spring like weather this ice, but certainly not short sleeve worthy!

happy Thursday y'all!

What beautiful children you have!

And boy, am I envious of that weather. I would KILL to be able to be outside with the colored chalk. JEALOUS...


BTW- thanks for the sweet blog comment!

Oh I love those fluffy slippers...she is a little princess, so cute! And I just love the rhino t-shirt...a boy's just gotta do what a boy's gotta do, he looks very appropriate for a day with the animals. Nel xo
