Here's a little summary of our week, in photographic form:
I bought this lovely Chopped salad (if you haven't tried them, buy one right away - they are fabulous!), and noted a strange interloper in the bottom of the bag. . .
A giant carrot! I can't fully explain why, but that giant carrot cracked me up. For several minutes, I laughed about that carrot. My son grabbed some ranch and made quick work of it.
IKEA towels! My parents bought some new IKEA towels, which I saw over Christmas break. I loved them, because they have a little loop for hanging up, which might perhaps give my children the nudge they need and enable them to actually hang up their towels. Since I have no IKEA nearby, I asked my parents if they would buy some for me on their next trip. I asked them to get two of each color, and assigned each child a color. I have wanted to implement this system for awhile and these towels seemed to fit the bill. So far so good! If I find a towel laying on the ground, I know
just who to ask about it!
The detritus of one Shadow puppy. His most beloved items, all lovingly laid out for his perusal.
A playdough My Little Pony, made at the request of my younger daughter with her big sister. The two girls laughed and worked together on this masterpiece. I simply adore their sisterly bond.
This is the dresser drawer of my youngest child, lined with a piece of wrapping paper from the baby shower I had for her big sister. When my mom was pregnant with me, she saved all the wrapping paper from my shower and lined my dresser drawers with them. I still have all that wrapping paper - from the early 70s! When I had my baby shower, I followed suit, and had so much fun lining my baby's drawers. Even now, 16 years later, when I open my not-so-little one's dresser drawer, the wrapping paper makes me smile.
