I organized a little Palm Sunday march during worship this morning. You should have seen me out in the woods yesterday cutting branches from the trees (and sucking up as much pollen as humanly possible)! Ugh.

She announced, "I'm going to Africa!" In a British accent.

I ordered this sleep mask three weeks ago!! (That's another story in itself.) But I was blown away with the size of the shipping box for such a tiny, little mask. Can you say "overkill"?

Last week I went to Rhea Lana to suit everybody up for spring and summer weather. Saylor was so excited to model everything for her daddy. She had him announce her presence for each and every outfit and then she danced and leapt and twirled to the music. She's something else. I was also quite shocked when, just before I left for the big sale, she told me she would like to have some shorts. *gasp!* What?!!

Today was just crazy. Saylor had dance rehearsal. Then we went home for a quick lunch and to get ready for recital pictures. Bun, a little makeup, and scoot back out the door! Thankfully, Paul came home at lunch for good (surprise! Call off the babysitter.) and could put the babies down for naps while Saylor and I did the photo shoot thing.
There were a couple of errands to run right after that, and then we had to get back home so we could get to church in time. Saylor was happy to wear her special hair-do to church along with some new clothes. It was a wonderful worship service, by the way! After church we were hungry. I had to get a picture of Saylor with her bun and in her new summery outfit. Isn't she getting tall?
(Gabe wanted his picture taken, too. Note how long his hair has gotten!!)
And Atticus couldn't be outdone. He's started to ham it up for the camera lately. :)

Another crazy day. Had so many things to do, so many errands to run, mostly all in preparation for Easter Sunday. Can you guess where we were here??
Among our many activities was this...!
Can you believe it????!!!

Sweet Gabriel saw a bunny paint book at Wal-Mart last week and asked for it. I was surprised but grateful for an idea for his Easter basket. And come Sunday, it was the first thing he wanted to do. Monday? All. day. long. he painted. In fact, he painted every single page in his book. With great care, too!! It was just precious. Maybe I'll have an artist in the bunch!!

Had Bible study this morning. That, homeschool, and lots of party planning went on today. And I never got around to taking even one picture!

Today I dropped off china for a special tea for international women in the area. The tea is tomorrow (Saturday), but I already had plans (see below), so I can't attend. However, it gives me great joy to send my pretties to functions like this. Check out my silver. My Mamaw Corene gave me one or two pieces of silver at every single birthday or Christmas my whole life from the day I was born. She even had one of the spoons engraved with my name and birthdate on it. I love this set. It's very girly. (And know how I polished it?? See here.)

Whew! We've just had so. much. going on lately. Hence the looooong two-week post. But I'm glad to be back over at Sara's with all her cool peeps.
