Catching Up...

Even though the "Terrible 3's" are starting to set it, she can still be angelic at times... Carley was outside playing and as I walked by the kitchen window several times, I noticed she wasn't playing anymore, she was just sitting in one spot. After about five minutes, I just stopped and watched her at the window, wondering what the heck she was doing sitting there for so long. Then I saw it...the sway - yup, she feel asleep, outside, sitting up. I went out to "rescue" her and she woke up crying and I asked her what she was doing. "I'm waiting for Daddy to finish planting the garden." Ahhh..the dedication to her Dad. Even though it was blowing 30 mile and hour she sat there and waiting...and slept.
Gavin learned about May Day and May Baskets at school. So at 6:00AM on Saturday morning Jed and I heard a knock on our door and found this "May Basket (Box)" at our doorstep.

Carley was going potty and multi-tasking at the same time - go potty, apply makeup...the end result - well, we will keep working on the application. But she was proud.

My violet that I have had for about 5 years FINALLY got it's first flower and then another one showed up right after that!
Kyra is our crafty child at the moment - she is coloring, cutting, gluing, stickering or stapling almost every minute of every waking day. She created this "person" all by herself - including the hair which was made out of leaves which was a neat idea, had they not come off of my house plant. :-(
She also made a purse for herself, this idea came to her all on her own and she did ALL of it, including the strap, by herself. Her Dad was pretty proud!

(Don't mind the bed head).

Her outfits keep getting more and more outrageous!

And if falling asleep outside wasn't odd enough...Carley was playing upstairs last week and I was folding clothes downstairs. After not hearing her or seeing her in about 20 minutes (usually even if she doesn't come down you can hear thumping or something upstairs) I decided it might be time to check on her. I found her laying on the playroom floor amongst toys and books, sound asleep.

Our tulips are in full bloom and Carley CANNOT resist picking every single last one of them (no matter how many times Mom and Dad tell her not to touch them). They are pretty though, these are my favorite - pink and peach!

The girls had a fun MESSY day outside last week. The weather was beautiful and they enjoyed being out all day long - obviously it quickly turned into bath day.

And one more...Carley was supposed to be sleeping, which she is in the picture, but I am assuming by her surroundings that she DID NOT go to sleep right away like she was supposed to?!
