Stick around for the ending. The cuteness factor is worth it.

The dress arrived the other day. She was excited. I was excited, even though I really wanted her to be something a bit more creative. I took the dress out of the bag and she promptly told me that she wasn't going to put it on until Halloween. Bad sign. I gave it a few days without saying anything. Today, while playing I suggested she try on her dress and she told me NO again. Finally, I bribed her with gummy vitamins and she put it on. That kid didn't keep the thing on for more than 1.5 seconds. She told me she did not want to be Tinkerbell for Halloween. On Thursday, she has a parade at school. So that gives me exactly 1 day to find something suitable. I suggested she could be Penny, from the movie Bolt, and she seemed to think that was a great idea. And we have everything she needs here in the house.
Would it be in bad taste to have Eli wear it instead? Because it sure doesn't seem like he minds it so much.

My friend Amy took photos for me at the party. It was so nice to have someone else do this for me, as there was no way I would have been able to watch the two kids AND take pictures. If you would like to see them, here is the link:
Here is my favorite!

enjoying record highs in Minnesota.
Even I can see the resemblance in this photo. Sorry kid.
Eli discovered apple juice!
For some reason, Eli also ate a lot of crayons on this trip.

One more round of 'taking advantage of your 13 month old brother' before we leave. She really was pulling him around like this.
A little too much to handle as we walked into her school. She walked very slowly past her old classroom from last year.
Taking note of the room. Hardly noticed I left. I actually told her twice I was leaving, just to make sure. Kid didn't blink an eye.

I'm out of ideas.
We've hit the dog days of summer.
Eli is teething something fierce and his mood, and the boogers and the heat
rash meant it was time to stay inside.
Lucy bought this doll and it kept her happy all afternoon.
She named it Trader. Most awesome doll name ever. Probably after Trader Joe's. But Ken thought she named it Traitor and I'm all, NO - TRADER!
really new. Usually I can keep the house somewhat together, but not today.
This is what just ONE ROOM looked like BEFORE dinner.

Eli is still a very happy baby. This is how he greets you after a nap. The smile to die for.
But he can be a grump too. Especially around the late afternoon. Also, when he sits at the bottom of the stairs and complains that he would like me to move the gate so he can crawl up.
Ken and Lucy have a very serious project in the works. A swanky swing set/jungle gym. Lucy doesn't like the sound of the drill, so we have provided her with some ear muffs. I think these will come in handy for the 4th of July fireworks. Last year = disaster.
