Cousin Fun

Last week Aimee and her kids were able to come down to Tucson and visit. It was fun to see them and my girls were insanely excited to spend time with Amea and Ty-Kell. They went shooting and were excellent arrow collectors...

We all jumped in Eleanor and headed to the zoo...

And we went to the Children's Museum. They especially enjoyed the little grocery store...

They all took turns being cashiers. Ty-kell's products were quite expensive. I believe he charged Grandpa $20 for cheese. But he was the one to go to for cereal you could get a killer deal.  Lydia on the other hand was a little salesman. Every time I came to check out she said I had to get more because I wasn't buying enough.

They had so much fun together and Sophie is already counting the days until we get to see them again this summer.

Funny Sophie

Sophie drew a picture of me the other day and I thought I would share. If your looking for a self esteem boost don't have Sophie draw you...she draws it how she sees it.

You may be thinking why are you wearing a bib? Nope that would be my stomach until she realized it "was too small to be your tummy mom" and drew the bigger circle. Now when she drew Chad he had arms and legs...apparently I am all tummy.

The other night she came out of her room and told me Lydia wanted me to sleep with her in her bed. "But I don't think it's a good idea mom because your too big and you'll break the bed." 

Thanks Sophie

Recent Happenings

A couple weeks ago my sister was able to quit her job. Which is awesome because she finally gets to stay home with her cute little man. We got to watch him while she worked and he was a lot of fun to have around. The girls definitely miss him. Especially Sophie she was such a little mom...

She would feed him and do baby talk. Both of the girls were just so awesome and helpful with him so I am pretty excited for Baby Roc to come. I think they will be too, they loved having a baby in the house.

Thanks to our tax return we were finally able to do something to our backyard!


Am I excited about rocks? Yes I am! No more dirt and thorns! The girls will actually go in the backyard and play now too! We put in pea gravel so it is much softer than gravel. Lydia likes to run around barefoot and lay in it. We also filled all of our planter boxes with dirt. Plants are to come :)
Goodbye dirt...we do not miss you at all.
