Oh why not...

This girl...


I had washed my Beco a few weeks ago after its long stay in the endless pile of stuff in the van. I figured I would put it upstairs because we weren't using it. Well M has decided that NEEDS me to hold her at every waking moment she sees me and this has been my solution.

Not that I'm opposed to holding her but all the time with no hands to do anything is not going to work out longterm. Also, she is FINE for an hour playing with the big sisters and as soon as I walk in the door it is  - rush over to me, put hands in air, and start crying. Not kidding. I'm flattered...

With all the end of year sales and stuff and discounts going on I found 2015 Christmas dresses for St. Nicholas to give the girls. 


Lee likes them more than last year's Christmas dresses and he said to not read anything into the comment... and I'm trying not to.

Speaking of Papa... Last week he told me that there was Soup with the Saints hosted by the Columbiettes and he thought we should go and it would be good for the girls because it was for kids.


Apparently he did not read the fine print... Or ANY print for that matter because it was not a presentation geared for kids - by a long shot and the handful of kids there were probably in the low double digits of age. Any way, the food was good. We learned a bit about St. Teresa of Avila, got a few bookmarks and E MADE me sign up to get a St. Teresa medal mailed to us. I was shocked how well the girls behaved so I hope it will be a monthly thing and I hope we'll be back

I finally finished Chosen and Cherished! I need to get the next book in the series for sure...

This girl... Oh wait I've already said that... 





She may not be walking yet  but she thinks she is as big as her sisters... 


Oh and she's the world's quietest monkey too...

E is still swimming away at swim class. We are toying with the idea of joining a swim club/swim team for the summer. We will see if that happens. I grew up swimming on a team. Lee did not. Pool business during the summer time? Yeah that's just funny. 


I even survived bringing R and M along for the class because Lee had some work errands... M was pretty sick of it by the end but we powered through.

Did I mention Lee is an awesome cook... 






Yep it was that good and there's one in the freezer too...
