September Randomness

Last Thursday night we took the kids to the park after dinner to wear them out have fun. The only thing that we could offer to entice them back to the car was to take a "Shrek bath" when we got home.

This is the only non-revealing photo that illustrates the green bathwater (colored with a few drops of green food-coloring):
Here's a cute shot of the girls LOVING bathtime:

And one of Tom-tom: **Note to all mothers and fathers out there, if you attempt this in your own home, always always always remember to put the food coloring away after you use it. I know it's hard when you're getting 3 little ones out, towels, slipping, drying, pjs, drama...I made that mistake once and will never do it again.
We like to refer to the girl in this photo as Princess Fiona:
We washed her hands a dozen times and there were still traces of green on her hands the next morning for preschool.

Grandma was so generous to take the girls home with her Friday night after numerous harrassing phonecalls from the girls during the week begging to stay over. What happens at Grandma's house, stays at Grandma's house, truly. They love playing with the kittens, watching movies, playing dollhouse, computer games, eating endless amounts of sweets and candy, and they especially love Grandmas rules. Grandma takes them to the grocery, lets them pick out whatever they want to eat, and if they are really, really good she'll take them to the dollar store and let them pick out a toy. She also lets them cook, which is something I'm trying to get better at, lucky for them Grandma is great at it.

Here is Elle eating pancakes she decorated:
Here's Khera making smores:

We had a small cookout at our house on Saturday night and spent most of the day getting everything ready. I was exhausted cleaning inside and outside of the house, I think Tommy sensed that and decided to help out.
If he could talk he would be saying something like "I've got this one Mom, you go sit down, put your feet up and have a glass of wine":

Here is putting a little elbow grease into it:

Here's a close-up so you can see his 2 new teeth on the bottom:
It wasn't until the end of the cookout that I realized that I forgot to take a single photo, so here are the kids posing with their best buds Travis and Sophia:

We all had so much fun in fact that everyone stayed over until 10pm, roughly 3 hours past bedtime. The next morning the kids slept in until 8am, and YES that is considered sleeping in past their 6:30am routine.

Here are the girls waiting patiently for Daddy to get back from his business trip yesterday:

Here's Khera polishing her shadow puppet skills to show B when he got home:

And I'll leave you with one last shot of K-bear--next time you put on your pajamas ask yourself this: Why wouldn't you wear sunglasses to bed???
