happy friday to you.
today it is dreary, rainy and cold.
certainly can't complain with the winter we have had...but seeing the sun makes all the difference to this florida girl.:)
have you tried these muffins yet?
not as healthy as homemade i'm sure, but a yummy alternative for a busy school morning.
we have had the cinnamon streusel and the blueberry.
something about the smell of muffins baking in the morning to get two sleepy girls out of bed.
works every time.
riley has been feeling tired and sleepy the last few days.
of course you would think this would convince her to go to bed early without reading at night.
but...no....sometimes her light is on after we go to bed.
it takes all my mommy power to resist telling her lights out go to bed NOW!
but i want her to make those decisions on her own.
i think she is old enough really.
what i want is for her to learn to say..."i'm tired, what i need is sleep".
not another half hour of reading.
i guess some grown-ups have a hard time with that though huh??:)
this morning as she sat there all groggy and fuzzy eyed i had her tell me some words she was feeling...a little morning note to her night time self.
she added some more words of her own...we will see if it helps tonight.:)
finally picked up my camera today.
tried to mess around in manual and go over some of the things i learned in class.
ready for waaaaaay too many pictures of aubrey??:)
this is really not the best picture...but we have been doing a lot of this lately.
biting our nails.:(
guess she is taking after the other june-bug in the house.
see that little boo-boo on her hand?
she has asked me every day for a week..."where dat come from? can you tell me about why dats dare (that's there)" i honestly have no idea where it came from and i'm seriously running out of plausible stories.:)
as in Brownie and Pearl.
we walked into the candy store one day and and aubrey let out this delightful squeal and ran to her, picked her up and said "look mommy, it's pearl!"
you know that little kitty had to find her way under our Christmas tree.
i practiced a bit on pearl...cause she sits still.:)
why is it so hard to get them to look...and smile?
when i asked her to look "right here" and tapped the side of the lens this is what i got...
maybe if i lay you flat on your back and stand over you...will you look at me then?
tickling that belly helps too:)
that top left one..with the eyebrow slightly raised...riley has that same look;)
so what are your weekend plans?
the big girls have a girl scout event on saturday and riley has a soccer game on sunday.
other then that...not much on the agenda.
i would love to get a weekend glimpses post out...for ol' times sake:)
we will see how that goes.
have a happy day,
