so this week is spring break for my girls. taylor went to colorado with her friend and her friend's mom and is having a blast. all the girls were not excited to find out that mom does not get a spring break from work. me too! but i made a game plan. i told them that every night they would get something from me to have to do the next day. so the first day it was coloring books. today it was sidewalk chalk. tomorrow they have bubbles and a mask to paint and decorate. also i told them that since i got off work earlier all week we would do some fun things together. last night we went and saw 'race to witch mountain' which we all thoroughly enjoyed. and i'm sure for different reasons. lol
tonight we went and had dinner at wildflower bread company and went and bought the crafts for tomorrow and i took carson to Rue 21 where she got some much needed shirts on sale. i have to tell you that carson has been such a big help to me this week. with taylor gone it is just her watching the little ones. every day this week carson has cleaned the house, did the dishes, done the laundry, made my bed with clean sheets! and taken care of the little ones with no complaints. and all of this she has done on her own. i did not ask her to do it. so she got a trip to the store. carson has always been such a help around the house. she is going to make a good mommy one day. love you carson.
and in honor of saint patricks day--a limerick:
There was a young lady one fall
Who wore a newspaper dress to a ball.
The dress caught fire
And burned her entire
Front page, sporting section and all...L

so last weekend as i was complaining about all the stuff i needed to get done around the house a wise person told me to take the girls and go do something. so we did. we went to the zoo here in prescott. it was a treat. they have a new tiger. we also got to see a black bear, porcupine, mountain lion and some horrendously nasty spiders. it was beautiful weather and i was glad i slowed down for a minute and enjoyed my girls and nature.
now, over on kaelene's blog she is doing a cute little 'pay it forward' type of thing. she said that the first five posters to her blog would get something handmade from her within the year. but the catch was that you had to give away something on your blog as well. so since taylor just watched that movie in school and i love kaelene i will offer something handmade by me within the year to the first five posters on my blog. and it made me think of my favorite quote on 'the soprano's': i know every day is a gift, but does it have to be a pair of socks? so no socks from me...L
