just trying to stay busy.....

Just trying to stay busy





Here is a typical picture of Will these days.....hand up (talk to the hand is what I hear when he does this!! )


He is doing a typical Montessori-like "work" while Livi is napping. He has "quiet time" now that he is "no, I am not three....I am 'almost FOUR'." Like there is a significant difference in his little world. These are the same foam shapes we threaded in patterns not too long ago. The mini muffin pan is the same one we use on Muffin Monday! Note the tongs: getting in some fine motor skill practice...note the anal color scheme of the color wheel in the pan....yep...he might look just like Mike BUT he has my anal tendencies!! Not sure why I am strutting around like a proud peacock parent here, I think that is something he learned at school!




So, on to our other fabulous activities this weekend: Big Bouncy Things here in BIG ARMY TOWN, TEXAS. I saw this thing in the paper that looked fun to do.....I called the couple of moms in Livi's playgroup and asked if they wanted to meet us there on Friday. One mom asked me how much it was....at this point in our lives, (Mike just left and we are looking for things to do...I DID NOT CARE!!) I was shocked when the attendant man asked for $21 and change for two toddlers....but we need some DISTRACTIONS!!! Dang, I should have brought my socks, I could have bounced too!!


The kids had so much fun!! Livi mainly like the huge ball pit. But did venture out to some with climbing walls and slides.



Will jumped right in but see the hand......even sliding down a twenty foot drop he manages the "talk to the hand" pose!



See how high this thing is.....yes, I am only 5'2" but still....it is pretty high!!



We only stayed a couple of hours then it was time for naps! They were worn out. I was glad because I needed some quiet time to clean and prepate for this..........
I hosted a Southern Living at Home party. Now I am all about the parties....Pampered Chef, Longaberger, Stampin Up, Gold Canyon Candles, you name it, I have either been to it or hosted one. But until I moved here I had never heard of this one I went to a party in January and was sucked in

..... But I wanted one of these....so I had a party so I could get it free!! I cleaned like a mad woman, prepped some awesome appetizers, and made a raspberry lemonade.

Tomorrow is the end of Spring Break and back to the ole same old thing......

happy Sunday y'all!
