Time to change the sheets

I hate changing the sheets. Hate. It makes it more tolerable knowing my kids absolutely love the day I change them.

Welcome the newest member of our family

This, ladies and gentlemen, is Maggie.

Maggie is our 5.5 week old yellow lab. She's starting to develop her little personality and is quite a feisty little thing. I may go as far to say that she is the cutest [non human] thing in the entire world. Needless to say, we're in love.

And so Lilly doesn't feel left out...

Since this blog is kinda about her:

Sometimes, you just gotta play

I was walking out the door to take Lilly to the park when in pulls mom with my Sadie and my niece. The park just isn't the same unless you take a bunch of kids with you, right?

It's getting hard to keep track

Of the days, that is. I'm not giving up on my documentation of her first year but it's so hard for me to have to count the days (I'm that sleep deprived) that I'm making this more of a baby blog, I think. Anyway, here are some pics from today.

Day 132

Here's one from Tuesday. My husband set up that...oh, what's it called? Oh yes, the slip and slide! Can you believe they still make those? Inevitably, someone always gets hurt, yet they are so much fun. Anyway, Lilly decided she might like to have a go at playing in the water. Not 10 seconds later my niece (God love her) splashed her in the face and as I quickly swiped the water off of her, her hair ended up like this.

Add in the lip pucker and I would say that's a perfect Blue Steel look if I have ever seen one. What do you think?

My facebook friends have already seen this but I had to share it here, too!

Day 130

Happy 4th of July! I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday. I have to admit that I was so insanely busy today that I hardly took any pictures at all.

We had a nice day. We started off by making blue fireworks pancakes followed by baths and the parade in town. [Can I just tell you that walking 1/2 a mile pushing 90lbs of grown girls in a double stroller in the 95* blazing heat was a really bad idea...talk about pooped.] It was so hot I started to be concerned about the baby so we left early. No one seemed to care because they had their bags of candy and we went home to air conditioning and popsicles! Later on after naps we drove over to my mother in laws house to watch the fireworks from her yard. The baby did well considering it was nearly 10pm before they started. My husband was even able to get off work and make it there with only minutes to spare. We had a great time!

God has blessed me with many gifts. Pancake decorating is not one of them.

Want the recipe?
1. Make pancake batter
2. Add blue food coloring- don't worry it did not turn anyone blue
3. Draw on pancakes with frosting- I used the kind in the can that squeezes out
4. Sprinkle with powdered sugar

I know it sounds super complicated but I bet you're just smart enough to figure it out ;) Surely we aren't the first people to do this but I have never seen it done- we just thought of it- so if you really need some kind of in depth recipe, google might just have the answer if you ask her really nice.

Day 128

You know how there is always that one ugly party of the yard that you strategically leave out and avoid when taking pictures? Yea...this is that part. But there is something about this that I absolutely love. The ugliness of it all seems beautiful. Almost county'esk that gives that warm, home feeling. But that's just me :)

And after 12.8 seconds of playing with the Lightroom free trial, I am hooked.
