Me: So do you want to go to that movie with Sawyer and Uncle JOhn?
Raya: No, that doesn't look like a very good one for me.
Me: But you will get to eat popcorn and stuff...do you want to go?
Raya: No, how about Sawyer and I go shopping!?!
Me: (laughing) No, they aren't going shopping, they are going to the movie. Do you want to go?
Raya: No thank you.
haha....so anyways, poor Sawyer couldn't get anyone to go along so then John found Brave playing at the cheap theatre and Gavin said he'd go to that and I just said yes on Raya's behalf (wanted her out of the house people! ;-) Raya has only been to one movie before and it was a cartoon right up her alley. I worried she wouldn't sit for Brave but John said she did great and ate lots of popcorn haha.
John said the funniest part though was driving there they played "I'm thinking of something that is...." ...kinda like 20 questions. Well Sawyer and John play that all the time so Sawyer is good at it. Gavin is just turning 4 so he's a little older than Raya and John said he did pretty well too, but sometimes had weird clues like "I"m thinking of something that is red and in the ground" ...and it was a stopsign. So Anyways, they let Raya have a turn---and she really has never played this game. John said he about died laughing because when it was her turn she said "I'm thinking of something.....and it's a cow!" lol. ;-)
Then as soon as she got home she had dance class, and then I took family pictures for the family I posted about on Friday.
On Saturday it was rainy and yucky so we took the girls into town for a bit and then ate at Hu Hot....yum! Usuallly this place is torture for the girls, becuase in the past they wouldn't eat the food and they'd drive us crazy while we tried to eat. But Saturday we turned a corner---they liked it!!! They loved the broccoli, pea pods, and green beans so we made their plates full of that haha.
On Sunday Lee went fishing in the morning and my parents wanted the girls so I took them over there for the day. I was supposed to then take pictures for Finn's family and my foreign exchange student "niece", but it was pouring rain so we had to reschedule. I"m going to try and take both sets of pictures Thursday evening...so far the weather forecast is free of rain that day so fingers crossed! While the girls were gone Lee and I thought about doing something in town but decided that having the girls gone was too wonderful to waste on getting ready and leaving the house haha. So instead we lounged around and played some pool, watched tv, I did some Etsy sewing, and we were just generally lazy haha. The girls are at a particulary exhausting age between the two of them right now I feel like, and any time kid free is pure bliss! ;-)
To end this rather pointless update, here are a few random pics of the girls looking cute as always
On Saturday Brielle was decked out in Gap Boho--one of the best lines ever! This shirt was Raya's but I found the matching jeans at the consignment store...score! It's a size 2T outfit so everything is rolled, but I still love it :-)
|She insists on picking crazy socks :-P|
And today Brielle is in her mouse outfit---which you will all see often because I love it so haha. (I still have 2 of the NEXT coupons for $10 off available so message me in my Etsy shop if you want a code! For new customers only and it's $10 off a purchase of $50 and free shipping.
And Raya is rocking Old Navy!
So that's what's been up with us! How was your weekend?! We hope to make it to the pumpkin patch soon, but it's been hard finding a good day! Today it's going to be muddy there from all the rain this weekend, tomorrow would be good but I have Harper and Sawyer, Wednesday is rain, Thursday I am taking pictures for people, Friday is Raya's dancy class and it's parent observation day! ...and this weekend Lee might be hunting/setting up deer stands--plus weekends are busy at the pumpkin farm so we're trying to do a weekday! Hmmmm...we'll get there eventually I hope! :-)
