Here is a week-end re-cap......we met some of our blogging friends over the week-end. As I mentioned earlier, they used the same adoption agency as us and we live a bit of a drive away...but were sooo happy to get to meet them! April and her girls Lauren and Paige. Lauren and Paige are both heart babies, like our Ella! What a sweet, beautiful family they are and we look forward to being able to get together with them again!!! Now, sometimes I have a hard time narrowing down which pictures to post....so you will get lots today. : ) The little cutie in the green bathing suit is Lauren...she is Ella's age and they had lots of fun on the rides together. Oh, and April was so thoughtful and sent the girls these t-shirts a few weeks ago. How cute are they all in their matching purple shirts???
I had to share this picture with you...just had to. Sophie wearing
cornstarch. Why, you ask? Well, she got into the vaseline and covered herself and her room in it. If you have not had the experience of getting vaseline out of hair...count yourself lucky! What a mess. I looked on-line and the common suggestion was to use corn starch. After cornstarching 3 times and shampooing about 10 times, I was getting discouraged. Finally on the 4th. try of cornstarch...most of it is gone. Make this mental note in case you ever have this mess on your hands.
Going from toddlers to teens...my boy pierced his ear over the week-end. We told him we were not allowing him to get his ear pierced and he would have to wait until he was 18. So, he took it upon himself to have his friends do it for him. My husband keeps telling him that he is going to remove it one night while he is asleep. So, Ryan is now sleeping with his door locked and one eye opened. Dave isn't going to do that(I don't think, anyway!) but it is fun to have Ryan worrying about it after he chose not to listen to us! LOL!
Happy Tuesday to you!!!!
