today is a happy, happy, double happy kind of day!
our weather is glorious and i do mean G.L.O.R.I.O.U.S.!
the windows are open and the breeze is a blowin.
janey loves to bake.
she wanted me to film her like she was doing a cooking show for food tv.
wonder where she gets that idea from??:)
please bare with me and this outrageously large amount of sometimes unrelated outdoor photos;)
today aubrey and i had a pretty simple day together.
we got our "chores" done right after drop-off.
today we did the floors, then vacuumed off the window sills.
window open kind of weather will motivate you to get that chore done for sure.
thinking of aubrey and windows open reminds me of this old post and this one too.
***oh be still my heart***
later we headed to the consignment shop to drop off some things.
i brought in all my old maternity clothes too.:(:(:(
i kept my favorite shirt for my memory box.
sad day for sure, but i'm trying not to think about it too much.
life is good
way beyond good!
after the consignment shop we had to rush to get janey for a dentist apt.
not enough time to get home for lunch so aubrey and i had a car picnic instead.
we shared a cheeseburger and fries and sat in our favorite park by the lake.
i told her that during car picnics she gets to eat and play in the car.
it was so beautiful i wish we had time to get out and really play, but the thought of cajoling that little sweetie back into her car seat after those few moments of freedom in the grass didn't sound very fun.
you know what i would like to invent?
some kind of barrier you can fit in the car that surrounds their car seat and prevents them from escaping to the back of the van whenever they climb in! what do you think? would you buy one???:)
this little one loves to tumble.
and the tramp is a perfect place to practice.
this picture cracks me up!
aubrey kept asking to play with the hose, but it was still a bit chilly for that.
i turn around and she is struggling to yank it free and turn it on.
should have heard the sound effects too.
speaking of cracking me up...this morning she calls from her crib..."mom....mom....i beg for you to get me....i beg for you to get me!!" later this evening she said, "mom....mom....aubrey's calling you!"
i think aubrey got bummed here and honestly felt left out as these two double jumped without her.:(
she is discovering the power her moods and feelings can have over others.
i ran inside to get waters and found her sitting on the back step staring longingly at the tramp making this face.
she softened a bit when i tried to make her laugh and smile.
so many things to love about this happy, happy day.
hope your day was happy too,
