Geoff and I were both off all last weekend...and so we had a good family day on Saturday.
We took the girls ice skating...Parker has been wanting to do this for a while now. She was SO excited to go. And she picked up on the skating pretty well, I thought.
Anyway- Geoff thought he was SO funny photo-bombing this photo. Kids.
It was also a special treat for me to be able to go to church on Sunday since I usually work. The girls got these new ponies and one side of the ponies' hair is twisted/braided....and the other side is curly. So per Parker's request....she wanted me to curl her hair...and then make a small braid on the other side to be just like her pony. I love this kid so much.
I do not like this picture of myself. My face is squishy and puffy and my eyes are squinty, (or really I think the 30lbs I've gained over the last 9 months is catching up with me!). But anyway- I love that I have a picture with my girls...so on the blog it goes. We ended up being pretty matchy-matchy! Not something I planned, but kinda liked that we were. :)
Monday was my last day of work until after maternity leave. Grace still asks me every day (even though I've already told her that I will be off for "a lotta lotta days") if I am going to go to work the next day. But I do think I finally got the point across with her today when I told her that I couldn't go back to work right away because of Nolan....and then I overheard her telling Parker so matter-of-factly that "Momma can't go back to work ever since she will have Nolan." So while it's not the whole picture that she's getting just yet....but it's a step in the right direction. :) I know I've just been working over 2 years...but it's like I can't imagine how my days are going to be not going to work. (I mean I know it will be GREAT....but just hasn't sunk in.)
In all 3 of my pregnancies- I have developed a sweet tooth. I feel like I need to have dessert after every meal (even breakfast sometimes). Thankfully this sweet tooth has dissipated shortly after having the babies...and I hope this time will be no different. Anyway- this has been my go-to dessert almost every night after the kids go to bed for the past few weeks. I made this bowl and so it's not as appetizing as what Geoff makes me when he's home.
Vanilla Blue Bell ice cream covered in chopped up m&ms....and now he also adds extra creamy Reddi Whip. Oh my goodness! It is so good.
Oh my girlies. Early birds. I think they think they are going to miss something. Both of them up this morning at 6:30....just ready to start the day. Thankfully- they were in a loving and playful mood (for all of an hour today, but we'll take what we can get) and colored and watched cartoons while I was able to get their breakfast and get ready for the day.
I really hope they sleep til at least 7:30 tomorrow. Pretty please?
