Just Because

Normally I pick out the cheapest generic dish soap available.  But sometimes a girl just has to treat herself to one that's pretty, has an uplifting smell, and looks good sitting out on the sink; even if it does cost twice as much. 

That's It???

So, I'm participating in a group garage sale in May. I've never done a garage sale before so I figured I'd better get started going through the house and gathering my sale items and pricing them.  So this afternoon I spent FIVE hours gathering, sorting, cleaning, pricing and packing items.  And this is what that looks like - not much, I know!!

I have 1 tote of kids clothing, 1 garbage bag of women's clothing, 3 plastic bags of shoes, a vaccum, some artwork, a large wall mirror, 1 box of books and 2 boxes of housewares.  And I haven't even touched the attic yet!

Sword Play

Cate loves it when William plays with her.  They play cars, wrestling and even swords.

Winter Get Away

We went on our annual waterpark winter getaway this weekend.  This year we went back to the Three Bears Waterpark.  The kids had a blast.  William went down the superfast body slide all by himself this year!  Isabella was able to go down the red slide by herself and Catriana enjoyed watching everyone, but wasn't too into participating.  She did enjoy riding the red slide on mommy or daddy's lap, but found the water too cold for the most part.  Her favorite was splashing in the Cub Tub (giant hot tub).  And the water seemed exceptionally chilly this year, so the Cub Tub was momma's favorite spot too!

No one got much sleep, but despite lack of night time sleep and missed daytime naps all the kids were pretty well behaved. 

My 3 sillies ready for some fun!!

My Sweet Boy

My Sweet 6 yr old made valentines for all his friends and family, including the dogs.  He put it in the window so Beastie would be sure to see it from outside.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

The kids are doing their first ever Valentine's party tomorrow with some other local homeschool families.  We're planning on exchanging Valentine's, having a snack, craft and game.   So this week we've been busy making our boxes and valentine's for our friends.  I chose to make the snack, so the kids and I got ready for that today too.
