I can't even remember what we did on Saturday. It's all a blur. I only have a few pics, and a couple of videos from that day. I'm trying to jog my memory, but it's no good. I remember now. It was just a chill day. I went for a run in the morning and the girls played quietly and nicely for the most part, Shawn had a baptism to go to and then when he got home we went to the Library. On the way home Sobey's had advertised on their outside board chocolate milk for 50cents a litre. Shawn, went in and came out with 15 cartons of chocolate milk.
We froze some and kept 2 in the fridge.
The kids played on the plasma car, and sure enough Shawn joined in.
Here are a few videos of the 3 kids and the Plasma Car.
The big Kid had some issues! LOL
After some Plasma fun we chilled and had some dinner.
I made Bento Boxes for the kids for dinner.
They loved them.
I totally have to thank my friend Amie for introducing me to them. It really helps with making sure the kids get a variety of foods, fruits and veggies, all the yummy stuff.
I am so excited to do this. I've heard of these swap things and have always wanted to do one. They look like so much fun. I've already figured out which 3 things I am going to swap. I'll take pics and let you know how it goes. If you want to participate in the swap click on the favorite things swap button.
I had to post pics! I went and had my hair done at the school here in town. They did a really good job. I think so. Don't ask Shawn though. He's not sure about the colour, and the shape of the haircut reminds him of some kind of dog. He tried back tracking out of that comment. It didn't go to well. But what matters most is I like it. And Emily is excited that we match now!
Julia has two favourite things she loves to wear. 1st her swimsuit, she wears it everywhere 2nd dresses. She changes about 100 times a day, which drives me crazy. She is always trying to put on one of her sunday dresses, but I don't want them to get wrecked. So I hung this dress up in her closet,
hoping she would want to wear it. No such luck. "It's not fancy enough!"
So this afternoon, I decided to "Fancy" it up.
I had Julia try it on after I had the little apron on. It was a huge hit. I still needed to put the flowers on
but she wouldn't take off the dress. Eventually I persuaded her, I think with a piece of gum.
On Saturday we went for a picnic. The weather was so great we had take advantage of it!
The girls played at the park and Rebecca, Shawn and I chilled on the blanket.
On Sunday we celebrated Father's Day and Emily's B-day. When Shawn was getting ready for church, I said to him "7 years ago today, you officially became a DAD!" So weird to think! We are so blessed. We enjoyed a delicious blizzard cake from Dairy Queen! On one half it said "Happy Birthday Emily!" in Pink, the other half "Happy Father's Day" in Blue. Becca really enjoyed the cake. And Emily made a great wish! She won't tell.
My parents called and sang her happy Birthday over the Phone! Emily was blushing! Too Cute!
This has been a work in progress for quite some time. We've had the theme picked out for awhile and slowly Emily and I have been getting things ready for her party. The them was the 50's. It started off with Emily wanting to go bowling and it just spiraled. It was so much fun.
I made poodle skirts for the girls and t-shirts for the boys.
Emily's skirt was extra special with a little sparkle.
I used old 45's for the invitations, and made a personalized record label for the invites.
"Hey all you T-Birds & Pink Ladies!
Emily is turning 7 and is hopelessly devoted to you being there!
So grease back your hair Boys! Put on your poodle skirts Girls!
Because it's time for some Rockin' Sock Hop Birthday Fun!"
Refreshments were easy.
Shawn's amazing chocolate milkshakes, strawberries, and cupcakes that looked like records (kind of).
I don't know if you noticed Julia's hair in the post before. It's a little shorter! She got a hold of a pair of scissors and snip snip. I knew she would be the one to cut her own hair or someone else's. Shawn asked her why she cut her hair, "It's in the way" she said very matter of fact. Gotta love her and we do.
