Friday was a fabulous day. The kids and I had a super laid-back morning of playing, coloring, reading and napping. I am definitely a homebody mom because these are my favorite kind of days. I just soak in our days at home.
Madeline and I read three chapters of "Charlotte's Web." She is loving this book and wants to read it all in one sitting. She especially loves listening while sitting on top of pillows on top of me.
Caleb has been eating rice cereal every now and then for a couple of weeks. At first he hated it.
Then he was kinda indifferent while pushing it out with his tongue. But on Friday, apparently he decided he could not get enough and began attacking the spoon with his mouth, hands and feet.
On Saturday morning, Joe made pancakes and we watched Andrew Luck's interview on Letterman. I'm very ready to cheer on a new Colts team and needed to meet my new quarterback. We tried to explain to Madeline how Luck is the new Peyton. This is a much more difficult concept for a 4-year-old to grasp than you would think. (Please note the two butter tubs on the table. I LOVE MY FAUX-BUTTER.)
After breakfast, we headed to one of our favorite places on Planet Earth, Midland Antiques. During this visit, we learned that part of Madeline's heart exists as a hot pink unicorn lamp and the visit turned into Mission No Unicorn Left Behind.
She fell in love with it and for $10, we needed to make this happen. So we bought it and she kept exclaiming, "I can't believe you bought me a pony!"
After we got home, we put the unicorn (now named Sandy, of course) on a dresser in Madeline's room, she laid down for a nap and I ran out for a few errands. When Madeline woke up, Joe texted me this photo. Apparently she wants to take Sandy everywhere with her. No one puts a unicorn in the corner.
On Sunday, we went to church, played Skip-Bo, watched "The IT Crowd" and went to a party with gobs of Joe's cousins. It was a fantastic party, thanks to all the fun people, spicy ribs and Chick-Fil-A waffle fries.
Then we came home for Sunday's family movie night and watched "Fantasia." Surprisingly, Madeline liked it. Joe made popcorn, of course.
Even if the world ran out of root beer, dairy-free ice cream and unicorn lamps, my life would still be fantastic, thanks to these kids, my husband and our times together.
