Project 365~March 1-7



Did you Spring forward?

Sunday, March 1st I skipped church to care for my two sickies. Eden had a head cold and Marli had a fever but if you know anything about 2 and 4 year olds its that even when they are sick they never stop. The video lasted all of 20 minutes before they were ready for something else. Playdoh, anyone?

Monday, March 2nd everyone was feeling a little better and good thing because Eden and Marli had an appointment with the pediatrician for well checks and vaccinations. They are both fine and growing normally and the maladies were determined to be viral. Poor Eden had four shots and a finger poke and did not even cry. Did you hear what I said? she is 4 years old, got stabbed FIVE times and DID NOT CRY.

She is more brave than I.

When we got home they wanted to play "dockter" to use all the skills they learned at their checkup.

Tuesday, March 3rd after a long day of baking for Campus Life, going to Campus Life, and running errands afterwards I finally sat down around 11:30pm only to realize that I had not yet taken a picture for the day. I looked around for evidence of any activities during the day but nothing caught my eye. Then I noticed that one of my socks was inside-out... all day... and I didn't even realize it. Its the one on the left.

Wednesday, March 4th was also a busy day with school and ballet. At the end of it Flip had the right idea.

Thursday, March 5th Aunt Dawn came to visit. She spoiled my kids with toys and hugs but thats what aunties from Missouri are for :-D One of the toys was those expanding rubberish thingies that start out tiny and grow bigger over night. Its akin to watching grass grow but the kids were so excited to find their stuff had "magically growed".

Friday, March 6th we are watching Mo for the day. My parents dog is as tall as Marli and weighs over 70 pounds and he is not even a year old yet. He is a gentle giant though and so mellow for a pup. He loves the kids and since we see him every day he is quite comfy here. Cuteness factor: Mo's toes :-)

Saturday, March 7th the week just flew by! And although we did go to the park today I had neglected to bring my camera. So you get a picture of one of Eden's charms. Everyday when Daddy gets home from work she asks, "did you have any mail for me?" She collects junk mail, receipts, coupons and used up gift cards and stores them away in an envelope for us to find later... in the "mailbox"

So that is how we jumped into March.


I know.

She didn't even cry? That's crazy! Sure makes the trip easier!

Dena said...

Sorry you had sickies at your house. We stayed home from church this morning because I'm the only "unsick" one at the moment.

Love the pic of Flip sleeping. Is that a pellet stove? We have one and love, love, love it!

Is Mo a lab? Very cute!

Karen Deborah said...

I missed the time change, thought it was next week. I need to go to sleep because I now have to get up even EARLIER and 4:30 AM was already horrible; but now after reading about your life I am exhausted thoroughly ready to sleep- good night.

Tabi said...

Wow...sounds busy!! So, here's where I let you laugh at me....when I took a quick glance of the picture of your socks while I was reading, I thought you had stitches in your feet!! I was cringing before I realized they were just socks! Hehehe....

Oh, your kids are just adorable!

I have a daughter who would get along just great at your house...her new favorite thing is collecting papers, or toys, or whatever junk she can find, and then stashing it in various and sundry places - the fridge, the case of bottled water, the bathroom cabinets. Usually places that we never think to look. Our microwave is above our stove, and she can't reach it, otherwise I think she'd try what your little one did! :)

You have such a darling family... I would start this project, but I know I would never stick to it. I'll just live vicariously through you! :)

I was enthralled. I am a little worried about you thinking that Mo's toes are cute, but whatever floats your boat : ). When you think doggy toes are cute you know what that means, right? Time for another baby. Just sayin....
