While the boys are away...

...the girls will play.

We made some cake batter the first night. I know some of you might think this is strange, but cake batter is one of my all time favorite treats. Perfect for our girls week!
We made an awesome fort that took over our dining room.

Had Sarah, Aaron, and Avery over to play.

Got to enjoy Oliver for a couple days. My girls just love him.

Unfortunately, he doesn't feel the same. He is a little bit scared of the chaos that is my house.
Other highlights of my week:
  • Enjoying hanging out with my dad. Which included some good food from the Mandarine.
  • Shopping at the Dollar Tree to find stuff for Paige and Morgan's B-day party!
  • Getting a little extra work in. Thanks for those that babysat.
  • Scrapbook night. I forgot how much fun those are!

We had a fun week, but I am so glad to have the boys back. They complete the family. AND I hate sleeping by myself. All those scary movies I watch come back to haunt me...

You look so cute in that picture with your girls! You really are such an awesome mom! We need more scrapbook nights together, I could scrapbook all night! :)

Amber said...

What a fun mom you are! Looks like you guys (I mean gals) had a great week!

ps, I like cake batter too!

Very cute picture of you and your girls!

Sorry about Oliver. He really does love you guys, but maybe he just loves you guys more when we're around. Thanks again for your help!

That first picture is one of my favorites ~ I don't think I have ever seen one with you and just your girls. It turned out really cute!

And your last statement literally made me start laughing. It brought me back to the day (7th or 8th grade?) when we would torture ourselves and watch scary movies ~ but we would never turn them off!! We were nuts...I think we just enjoyed screaming and acting crazy :)
