Well - my sister Kelyn was just here for her 4th visit!! We got to have her and the boys for 10 days and it was just fabulous! The 4 kids get along great! So, let me just fill you in on ALL the crazy adventures we had!
For starters, Kelyn and I mastered 6 PUZZLES while she was here!! Mostly 500 hundred piecers. We ended with a bang and did a 1000 piece puzzle! Pretty sweet - eh? BUT WAIT, it gets even crazier! When we weren't "playing puzzles" (that's what we like to say) we were having word search races, reading, making MULTIPLE batches of cookies, napping, playing settlers, devouring delicious sandwiches and basically just being laid back and carefree! We quite enjoyed ourselves! Aren't we AWESOME?! We did get to go on a fun-filled girls night to Red Robin! We had big plans to party the night away - go clubbin (haha!), cruise through town, catch a flick - but after our burgers we decided that we wanted to go home and change into our PJ's and finish our Puzz diddly uzzle. I know - can we GET ANY COOLER?!! =)
What were the kids doing during all of this? Well, they did a lot of dressing up (mostly in doggy ears leftover from Anika's Blue's Clue's party last year), dancing, cushion jumping, they liked to be superheros and fly from room to room, empty out EVERY toy in the house, color with crayons (in Isaac's case - EAT the crayons), when it was nice outside they loved playing with the bikes and going on walks, AND of course - they did watch their fair share of The Wiggle's and Teletubbies (tubby tubbies as Keslie calls them) and Winnie the Pooh. Samuel calls me Aunt Brikky. =)
We hit the JACKPOT on Saturday when we hit the tag sale scene! We came home with a CARLOAD of stuff. I'm still not sure how Kel got it all in her suitcases. Luckily, she always brings an extra one for tag sale merchandise. =)
Kelyn got to be my sole helper in nursery on Sunday. We make a good team! We laughed because we sound the same - we both talk in a high, zippity doo da kind of voice. =)
The last day they were here the weather was FANTASTIC! We dropped Anika off at pre-school and took the 3 younger kids to Westmoor park. The foliage was just beautiful and the kids had a great time running around. Keslie and Isaac even engaged in some puddle jumping!
And now they are gone and we are very very sad. 10 days goes oh so fast.
Today I tried to stay busy - we went to the library and grocery store this morning and then after lunch we went shopping for Christmas outfits! I think I found them! A little different than the Froo froo dresses I usually pick, but I'm excited! I can't wait to make bows to match! While I was at the mall I stopped in at the Verizon store to see if I could get any deals on phones. That's right my friends. My phone in gone! Lost and STOLEN. I'm so upset. If anyone has any verizon phones laying around their house that they'd be willing to sell - let me know!! The prices are pretty up there and it's looking like I'm going to get to use OLD FAITHFUL. I don't know how old it is but compared to my Chocolate it looks like it's from the stone age. Anyway - I'd love to find a screaming deal! I then went to Target and had a most upsetting experience in the food court area and then was met with rudeness everywhere I turned. I dearly love that store so I won't hold a grudge. I did, however, take a stand by NOT putting away my cart. Haha! Poor cart guy. He didn't do anything.
Anyway - I am officially rambling. Kelyn - thanks for visiting and for being such a good friend to me! We already miss you and the boys!
Here are some pictures from the visit! I didn't take as many as I would have liked but we still got some cute ones! I have some videos that I'll upload when I get the chance! I'm sure that Kel will be posting a bunch of pictures on her blog too! See ya!
