|What the house looked like when I walked in......yiiiikes|
Life, lately, has been full of:
outings with PopPop
|"Mama, look! It's Mickey Mouse!"|
I showed Natalie and she said, "Um, I don't like the face. Make it better." So I looked up a picture for reference and tried again:
I thought my second attempt was admirable, for someone who can't draw to save her life! Then I asked Natalie to draw Max:
I think it's awesome that she is getting more interested in drawing. The other day she wanted to do science experiments and had this idea to draw the experiments on paper and then pass them out downtown to hopefully find the "evil lab scientist" and be able to do all the experiments we wanted to, ha! She's been SO creative and inventive lately, I'm LOVING it.
We've ventured out to the Sump Memorial Library in Papillion with my dad's library card and the kids are loving it! Natalie calls it the "Reading Club" and Jack thinks it's hilarious to run willy-nilly through the stacks, peeking at me and shrieking with delight when I don't snatch him fast enough. Libraries are awesome. I used to try to go to story time at the Lincoln libraries but it was always a disaster with Stockton, so I gave up a long time ago; it's nice to be able to go again since we go while Stockton is at ACT clinic.
PopPop took us to the zoo, too! Jack and Natalie loved every minute. We're excited to bring Stockton again when we go after ACT clinic. Jack really was so excited, it was so cute.
|this lizard was all up in Natalie's face!|
the elephants were definitely Jack's favorite: "LOOOOOK! EH-YEH-FENTS!!!"
|feeding Goldfish to the fish...|
The lionesses were right up against the glass, and the Lion King was up by pride rock. Jack was impressed, Natalie was interested in her rice krispy treat.
|I found it! The picture of me and Makenzie in Yellowstone, the first time we met in May 2011|
|my favorite snack/dessert lately: strawberries and this amazing yogurt|
|Austin's dream came true: a real basketball hoop in his backyard! 99 cents at Goodwill|
|the white stuff you see? MAYONNAISE that plopped all over after|
Stockton threw the unopened bottle down the stairs -_-
Bathing beauties. Natalie said that she was a "real girl" now that she had her hair in a towel like that.
The movie of choice around here lately has been Penguins of Madagascar....if you haven't seen it, you should! Silly enough to engage the kids and funny enough to engage the adults. Highly recommend.
