Today's happenings...

Today I decided to redo our playroom.  It's a "Florida room" which is way too big to just have toys strewn about on it in no particular organized fashion, and that's what it has been.  A MESS.  So today I got motivated and turned a mess into a FUN play area :)  Here's a few pic's:

After that, we had some playtime :)  Wow, these guys LOVED having the mirror accessible!

Brianna enjoyed the mirror as well but Emma, goodness, she sat like that for a good 15 minutes playing with her mouth, hands, feet, and anything she could reach on the mirror!  What a neat way to play!

Then Mike decided that an 80 degree pool was begging to be swam in.  Yes, the WATER is 80!  WOO HOO!  So first he brought the dog in,

And then he and K and Bria went for a dip.  We set up a tiny pool on the side for Brianna at first

As you can see, that didn't last long!

And where were the little ones while I took pictures by the pool?  Enjoying the A/C in the playroom, of courrse!

I realize that this is the world/s worst photo of Emma, but take a really close look and you'll see why

I snapped it in a hurry.  The things that kids do when they don't think you're looking... Like get up on their hands and knees!! Way to go Emma!!

Tonight we'll go to church so it's time to get baths going for the water bugs...


  1. Oh my gosh...I almost dropped the laptop right out of my lap when I saw that last pic of Emma! Look at her! Amazing!!!!

  2. Oh Emma what a clever little girl you are! And how clever of you Mama to get you on camera too!!

    What a great idea that mirror is. I have never seen one like that before.

    The play room looks fantastic! Shame you live on another continent or I'd be over for a play date in a flash lol

  3. I really like what you did to the play room. The carpets were a great idea too!
