"baba fairy"

Last wednesday night the "baba fairy" (aka the pacifier fairy) came to our house and left little miss a note telling her she was coming in a few days to get her baba's and would leave her a surprise...

all the baba fairy notes....

She told most anyone that the baba fairy was coming. When friday night came she put them all in a bag for the fairy and brother helped her too. We keep thinking wow this is going really well. Then into bed where she cried for about an hour and half for her baba. She woke up one time during the night but feel asleep after about 30 min. When she woke up the baba fairy had left her some surprises....

some new pretties with her new favorite "kitty Hello"...

The fairy had hoped to find a baby doll but the one she wanted was way to much money so instead what else a Barbie...

she was very happy with her new surprises...

The baba fairy also brought little mister a few little things as well...
All in all she did well she does not ask for her baba but she is still having a hard time falling asleep with out it and nap time has been a disaster partly because she has taken to taking off her own diaper . I know what you are thinking Potty training soon... I am not sure I am ready :)

So many things have been happening and I need to post about them. However you are going to have to wait to see and hear about the pacifiers going away, and Cousin K's big birthday. For now I leave you with this...

yes he really wore a hanna Montana wig. Rock on babe!

lego tower

Little Mister loves to build with legos, he loves it even more when daddy builds with him. He had stopped using the big legos for awhile now but the other night he and daddy built a tower together. I couldn't help but laugh at how both of them wanted to be in charge of the construction. In the end they were very proud of themselves. It was times like this I needed a wide angle lens to get a full effect but instead you will just have to imagine the whole thing in one big piece :)

Putting on the last piece...

staying cool

a few weeks ago when it was so hot the kids had fun in the evenings playing outside. The first choice was always the sprinkler.

Then they discovered the fun of water guns. Why the goggles?
Because little sister
liked to spray him right in the face.

Fear Not!!!!

We are in the middle of our church day camp Crocodile Dock this week and having so much fun. We have had 105 kids and lots of amazing volunteers. My friend Julie and I are co directing it and have been so happy with how well things are going. There was a rush and craziness over ordering more stuff and making sure we had enough supplies, after all we planned on 80 kids. WE are so excited as we watch what these kids are learning and the friendships they are making. The best part that I can't wait for on friday thanks to a very generous donation we are giving away..... oh wait I can't tell you yet it is a surprise :)
Little Mister is hard to get a picture alone as he is always doing stuff with his friends the "cute crawdads"

LIttle miss is having blast with her two favorite buddies and more friends in her "tiny tadpoles" class.

I am...

I am... sleepy

Outside my window... cloudy day which to be honest I really enjoy

I am thinking... How did we get so much stuff, should we do a garage sale or just give it away to Goodwill? Feel free to give advice on that :)

I am thankful for... My sister and she knows why :)

From the kitchen... not feeling motivated to cook much of anything. I will make cookies for VBS next week maybe.

I am wearing.. my jeans and a new purple shirt

I am creating... hopefully this week some new shirts I have been want to try to make.

I am going.... crazy :)

I am reading... Just finished Three Willows by the same author who wrote Sisterhood of the Travailing Pants

I am hoping... for a little nap

I am hearing... Madagascar while bubby plays with his new garage sale finds.

Around the house... stuff

One of my favorite things... friends

A few plans for the rest of the week: clean and get ready for VBS

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

the last of the vacation photo's. sorry if I over whelmed you with all of them! We just had so much fun and I wanted to share them with all of you.

Little Miss watching the fountain....

Little miss looking sweet and innocent but really she is taking money out of the fountain, and no her daddy did not tell her to do it :)

Every year we take the kids picture by the same tree down by the lake.

In all the pictures we took we forgot one picture... A family picture by the Wallowa lake sign. Well hopeful we will remember next year. Thank you for sharing in our trip thru our pictures.

some of thursday

I made the kids new PJ's again this year. However this time I used the same fabric the only difference is I used ric rac on little Miss's cuff and a solid strip for Little Mister. I had other plans for the shirts but I ran out of time. after my machine broke Miss Melney was kind enough to sew the pants for baby and bear who joined us on our camping trip.

We had a fun Ice cream Sunday surprise party for Grandma. We celebrated a day early so everyone could join in. The kids kept the secret so well!!!! I loved when Grandma walked up and Little miss ran up to her and said "surprise".
The kids help decorate the week before we left...

Thank you Jen, Melissa and Nancy for all your help in pulling this off. Thank you Walt for letting us take over the party planning :)
The rest of the day was full of exploring and I got some of my favorite pictures of the week! I will share tomorrow.... here is a sneak peek
