Project 365: Week 25

Sunday, June 13, 2010

I looked over during church this morning to see Gabriel resting his head on Saylor's lap,...and she was gently patting his head!

After all the kids were in their pajamas this evening, Paul let them go outside and watch him water our newly-sodded slope out front. Of course, ride-on toys had to be dragged out. By the time I got out there, I discovered my oldest son pushing my youngest child in his little car waaaaay up our sloped street. (This had apparently been going on for a while.) "That's too high" and "He's not going to like that" and "You're going to scare him" and "Be careful" are the thoughts in my mind, especially when I saw this look on Atticus's face as they came barreling down the road:

And you should have heard him screaming! It sounded awful!! I was so scared for him.

But take another look.

He was actually screaming with laughter. He loved it!! (And yes, he was buckled in. I DID manage to ask that before they took off.)

Tonight we're having oatmeal for supper.

'Cause sometimes that's all I can muster. Oatmeal with a good tablespoon of butter per 1/2-3/4 cup serving of oatmeal. Mmmm... I believe in the health benefits of animal fat, especially when eating grains.

Saylor went to a birthday party today. It was a "dress-up like a fairy princess party." I thought it was pretty silly, but Saylor enjoyed it quite a lot. From the hair-do (complete with glitter) to the nail polish (oh, my!), it was definitely her cup of tea.

Today I wrote a post about our precious friends. Will you please read it???

Then I went to make dinner and get a shower before Bible study. But before I got into the shower, I found this little catastrophe awaiting my attention. This is why it does not behoove me to spend my "alone time" in the kitchen cooking. This is why. (Do they make slings that will hold two toddlers at once?)

Noah at his school desk.

Don't think for one second that he is smiling about schoolwork right now...

Today we shopped some more for a dishwasher. (For those of you keeping score, we are now at five weeks and counting without a working dishwasher.) The kids? Well, between riding the lawn mowers, the excitement of the escalator, and dancing to the likes of Tom Petty and Heart, they seemed to have had a grand time.

So, that's about it for this week. All the "Project 365" participants are linked up at Sara's. If you need me I'll be washing dishes. Many, many dishes. By hand.

  1. love this first picture...very sweet!

    boys! is all I can say about the next couple of pictures...they strive to give their mother's heart attacks!!

    I love oatmeal with a big pat of brown sugar and of course milk!

    the picture of Saylor getting the eye shadow put on is precious!!! what a great shot.

    oh the innocent look on that boys face!!!

    I love, LOVE my new dishwasher. it's a Quiet Partner V and we got it at that place in Maumelle...Metro appliance. Hey, I bet if you made your husband wash the dishes, you would get a dishwasher faster! just sayin'! :)

    great week!

  2. Wow...what kind of dishwasher are you looking for?

    The kids are so sweet with each other. What a blessing to see that. What made that blue mess? It doesn't look like marker...

  3. Some great pics and it looks like some great memories!
    Just when we are sure a kid is about to freak out from terror, we realize they are actually enjoying themselves - if only we could sit back and enjoy it too!
    What a fun birthday party for little girls!
    Yeah, a sling for two might be good, but would make the chiropractor rich - what was the blue stuff?
    My boys love escalators!

  4. I seriously know nothing of raising active lil' boys. Those questions would have gone through my thoughts as well! Yes... what is turning your sweet boy into Papa Smurf? Love his expression!

    My girls would have loved a fairy princess themed party. Fun-fun!

  5. OMGosh what a mess you little one was...but so so cute. Love that innocent face like "is something wrong?" lOL I have to laugh. Too cute.
    Can't wait to see the finished door. Love wooden doors. So beautiful.

  6. What a beautiful princess!!!

    What exactly IS that blue stuff? Looks like chalf from a pool table.. oh my...

  7. What a week..your kids seem so tender towards one another, love it! And that face of your little one going down that hill..OMGosh...too funny! And I bet Saylor had so much fun at the dress up party!

  8. Glad your "heart attack" was short lived and that the boys had fun!! It's amazing what they (and we) live through!
    What a fun party for Saylor and that eyeshadow was awesome!
    The blue face and hands was quite funny...I know, not for you!
    Can't wait to see the door!
    Have a super week!!

  9. oh goodness! the picture of your son turning blue is priceless... this is one to save and bring out as needed ha!

  10. I don't use a dish washer but then again it is only me and my hubby... it is very easy for e to wash everything by hand.

    I also wanted to answer your questions you left me on my blog...

    1) I really don't know when to pick an onion... I guess I would say either when you need to use one .... or when it starts peeking out of the ground. (sorry I am not really a farmer)

    2) Staining the garbage can was actually really easy. This was the first time I stained something... you just sand it... put the first coat of stain on... then with a fine steel wool sand it again... then put another coat on it...

  11. Awww... I liked your brothers post :)

    Love the innocence on your decorated toddlers face. You'll be thankful you took that picture even though he undoubtedly wears you out.

    And your little one on the hill, I knew from the minute you mentioned it that he loved it. They just don't understand they can get hurt because they are indestructable in their eyes. My daughter would have screaming in delight at that age (well, even now) too.

    Thanks for sharing your week and taking the time to check out mine!
