All of the Things We Do Around Here

That Ember baby, she likes causing trouble in this house.

Right around Payson’s third birthday (in June) he started leaving elephant at home when we went on errands. He stopped bringing elephant into the living room with him every morning. I noticed last week that it had been a good month since I’d seen Payson with elephant besides at bedtime (he still cuddles with elephant every night) so the other day when he brought elephant out into the living room to cuddle with while watching TV my heart melted and all those elephant memories (that had surprisingly quickly been forgotten) came rushing back. I’m so happy that this week he’s been taking elephant everywhere with him again. It’s just the cutest thing.
This morning he gave elephant a ride around the house in Brooklyn’s stroller.

I bought a lot of Halloween craft supplies this year. I mean a LOT. Target’s dollar spot had a lot of stickers and foam shapes and glitter glue and pom poms and pipe cleaners and on and on. And then Hobby Lobby, and the dollar store, and WalMart… we had a lot of fun stuff this month! I haven’t taken pictures of any of it! Shame! Today I snapped some and was so proud of myself!

There are about fifty other crafts around here. I can’t seem to make myself photography them though. Too many, too lazy.

A couple days ago the girls broke our swing. It’s really old and I guess sitting out in the blazing sun all day isn’t very good for the fabric!

I’m behind on laundry; Ember only owns two pairs of socks and both are dirty from our Utah vacation (nope, not done laundry since!) so I put her in tights with her sneakers so she could play outside.

Payson and Ember really are great friends. She plays with him now and it’s just amazingly cute. They kiss each other a million times a day, too!! And Ember even puckers up her lips and does the “mwuah!” sound! It’s SO CUTE!

Allan took the swing apart so we could get rid of it.

The girls always look for the prettiest rocks out of our gravel and then keep them all in piles until Allan and I make them toss them back. They have a lot of fun doing this. Weirdos.

Allan BBQ’d hamburgers for dinner. Yum.

As if it wasn’t funny enough watching Ember in a onesie, tights and tennis shoes, she had dirt all over her tights and grass and twigs on her bum. It was adorable.

The hamburgers were really good! Even Ember munched on a chunk of a patty.

I told Allan tonight, if we’re not moving to Utah soon (and therefore needing to save money) we really should buy some patio furniture!
