 i took this pic at 12. joey was having a party. i was so very tired. but i took a pic instead of thinking negativly.....remember. the days are long but the yrs are short...

nate has pink eye!!! poor dude!
 ellie asking me to draw our family, our house and our beds. ok i SUCK at art! lol
 ellie. in the tub with her "princesses" for 3 HOURS!!!!!!



 so, nate got pink eye and had to say home on friday which was a total bummer for him.  he has forest school (awesome) and i planned a play date for the girls. BUT we had to cancel bec he was sick. so i tried to make it up by planning a totally awesome ART class......who would have guessed that nate would have so much fun!!!!

we painted, and talked and shred stories
 nate's work of art!
 ellie joined in too!
 one of nate's creations
 an hour of art work!
 then nana and papa came. only for a quick visit (they were spending some time with mr. copper this wk end) but i can say, im surprised by how much ellie has asked for you guys. i think she misses you both!
 seriously. i am SO blessed. so very blessed to have a son who adores his sister. so much. i am SO happy with their connection.....and i think its funny that ellie thinks nate's bed is HER bed. lol

 happy birthday chris!  we celebrated chris's birthday a day early.  thurs was a crazy day, a friend of mine had a baby and i had my annual dental work done.....resulting in me getting sick, but chris saved the day and held me, then put me to bed!  how awesome is he!?!!  anyways, we celebrated his birthday on wed.  he doesn't like cake, so i got him his fav fruit dish and tried a new lemon square from a local bakery, and it was AMAZING!!! i am totally getting another one for me!  and i got him the best gift ever.  lets just say it came from the n.b.l.s......

 if you spend anytime with me, you know i say "JOHANA"! at least 3 times while you are with me!  joey is SUCH a monkey!  into everything!  she keeps me on my toes; but she also taught me the greatest lesson, just to be with her when she's awake....other wise she is into EVERYTHING!!!! 

saturday was SO nice out.  i put the famous bowl of water and kitchen gadgets for joey, and what does  she do?????
 pored it all over herself
 while wearing her rubber boots. that she will NOT take off
 then she put a straw in her cup
and sipped it

i truly enjoyed spending the one on one time with her.  i can not imagine our life with out this MONKEY! 0 comments
