is busy and crazy and going by way too fast!
The benefit of this...only 2 more weeks until Christmas :-)! Wooo Hooo!
Here is a smorgasbord (thanks Katie!) of events from last week...
This is Preston's left-over hairspray, yogurt, water look. Monday morning he had hairspray in it still from Sunday and then he put his morning yogurt in it. When I tried to rinse it out over the kitchen sink it held style wonderfully! Who knew?! I don't remember anything else from Monday (or Tuesday for that matter), it was WAY too long ago!
Wednesday afternoon we headed over to the library for their craft time (it's for ages 6 and up, but depending on the activity Addie helps Ella). They were making holiday banners, which was so perfect because we needed one for our kitchen! I tried to keep Preston happy with his own craft, but he wasn't buying it :-). The girls are definitely proud of the finished product hanging in the house.
We then headed downtown for a special dinner at the Aquarium. I had no idea it offered so many attractions! I want to head back in the day time and really check it out! The girls were in absolute awe of everything about the place, it was almost a better reaction than Disneyland (seriously)!
Ella was all for hamming it up :-).
Thursday Ella had dance, I fed the kids and then hurried off to Hope's orchestra performance. She is such a talented kid and was the only freshmen to make the highest Orchestra...go Hopie! (she's on the top right in the video, and my camera does not record the sound in a way to do them justice - it sounded much better than that!) I left early though to head to Mckell's birthday dinner, which was delicious and fun...and then it was finally Friday...wooo hooo!
(Every Thursday while Ella is at dance Addie, Preston and I go and visit my grandparents for a little while. We all look forward to it!)
