Hodge Podge

Seriously.  I didn't mean to miss so many days.  I kept thinking about things that I wanted to write about on the blog and then I would just, well, forget.  It happens sometimes.

We spent the whole weekend in the yard.  No joke.  Quinn was possibly the dirtiest he has ever been yesterday.  We weeded and planted and mulched and put up edging.  Chris cut the grass (and the weeds...neighbors...you're welcome).  And finally, it is starting to look like a nice yard.  You know, now that we've lived here for a little over four years.

While I was taking jewelry pics this weekend (just wait until you see what I have in store for you!), I also snapped a few of what the girls made for Chris for his birthday.  They're such crafty girls...


This framed picture is from Casey. She colored in the frame and found the picture (I think it is of her.  I was terrible about writing names on the back.  I do know that this was when they were 4 months old.  And weighed 8lbs.)  You know, she is, the "alsome one"...


And this is a little something that Chandler whipped up for him.  She crocheted the whole thing and then with the chains she stitched them into place to spell out his name.


Clever, those two.  Definitely clever.  And crafty.  And also sarcastic these days.  Casey keeps giving me two thumbs up...

Me:  Case, pour your brother some milk.*
two thumbs up
Me:  Casey, go put away your laundry.
two thumbs up

It got so bad the other night I told her that if she gave me the thumbs up again I was going to break the thumbs off and stick em where the sun don't shine.

She stopped...for the evening...and then was right back at it the next day.  Sheesh.  Clearly not afraid of me.  :)

*milk = almond milk.  Quinn has a horrible vomiting habit.  Mainly after drinking milk or having ice cream.  So, we made the big switch this weekend to almond milk and Italian ice.  We've definitely noticed a difference, so I think we'll stick with it for awhile.

Last night at dinner we were playing a word guessing game... Which word starts with "b" and ends with "d"?  BREAD.  Which word starts with "p" and ends with "l-e"?  PURPLE.  Casey's contribution to the game...

Which word starts with F and ends with CK?

And then Chris and I had heart attacks right there at the table.

The answer?

You thought it was going to be something else too, huh?  :)
