since i only manage to post once a week these days, i figured i should be sure to get my post up. but i must admit that i'm exhausted and REALLY ready for a nap while the girlies nap...so this may be more "bullet-point tuesday" than ten smile tuesday! :)
-having daddy off for five...yep, five!...incredible days in a row!
-a fabulous-o date with my hubby thursday night...thanks to our date swap for free childcare and to ted's montana grill for the B1G1 bison burger coupon. i mean, a night out with my favorite guy would have been fabulous, regardless, but its nice when there's a bargain involved as well!
-a fairly successful garage sale...despite the lack of advertising on our neighborhood's part and the cool and semi-rainy weather saturday. i still made $100 for stuff i'd have been getting rid of anyway (and some things i would have considered j-u-n-k!)...plus it was fun to spend two mornings hanging with a friend.
-this sweet girl!
-and this one, who did a FANTASTIC job at her first ever dental appointment...she passed with flying colors and was proclaimed one of the most cooperative and calm little patients they'd ever had...which made mommy's heart happy...i wasn't sure how she would react...hence the fact that daddy went along instead of mommy....he seems to have a calming effect! we celebrated with homemade chocolate malts to share...yumm-o!
elizabeth and kate loved their cinnamon "squiggle" donuts...
elizabeth even gave daddy a push on the swing as a present...i mean, really, what more could a daddy want on his special day
then the girls gave daddy the gift of letting him push...elizabeth loves flying HIGH IN THE SKY! and she loves to sing, "high in the sky, and the world wonders why...i'll just tell them i'm loving my KING..ooohhh ohhh ohhhhhhhh!" LOVE IT!
mommy gave daddy a german chocolate cake...and he appreciated that as well!
and finally, we invited some friends over to enjoy the cake and sunshine with us...gotta love that of the four kids, the youngest of all, kate, is the one standing at the top of the slide platform!
and then they paused for a rare "together and both sitting still and mostly smiling" picture...these girlies are a joy to my heart! and i can't wait to meet their little brother or sister...who surely will expand the joy and blessings infinitely! only 15 more weeks, folks!
