Catching Up

So, nothing like taking an entire week off from keeping you all in the loop of what's going on in our little household.  It's not exactly been a vacation -- I've spent the last week working on photo albums for  Olivia.  I can't remember if I've told you {but now I see that I have}, I am WAY behind on making photo books for the girls.*  I got on a kick a few weeks ago and have made four books since then.  I finally finished Olivia's photo books from 1-2 {even though I pretty much had to completely start over since they stopped making the books I had originally started} and then did a short Halloween book for both of the girls.  This past week, I thought I would do a quick book for Olivia's 2-3 and it took a little longer than I expected.  {Turns out, it's hard for me to not be a perfectionist.}

Anyway, here's what we've been up to during the day...

+  I took Sydney with me to a craft show with Mom, Aunt Patty and our friend Beth who was in town. Lord, this little girl is just the best.


+  On Sunday, we went on a little boat cruise around Saguaro Lake.  It was a bit chilly, but the views were great and it was fun hanging out with the Caldwells! Not to mention, Olivia loved the hot chocolate and popcorn!



+  Bedtime usually starts with my three babies snuggling together...


+  And the morning usually starts with this one in our bed...


+  Sleepovers at Nana and Poppy's mean that this one can enjoy a bath all by herself.


+  David and I took a Love and Logic course the other day.  It was really entertaining and informative.  David and I even got to enjoy a nice lunch together...too bad it was just food from Trader Joe's and we ate it in the car.  And, even worse?  David got seaweed chips.  Ohmyword, the smell.


+  We went to Target yesterday and Sydney fell asleep on the way.  Thankfully, I had a couple blankets in the car from our boat cruise on Sunday and so I made a little bed for her in the cart, and lord.have.mercy it was the cutest Target trip ever.  


+  And, to sum up the most boring post ever....we made cookies today!

Busy and fun times seem to be the Michelson mantra. I love how you always put your family first Amanda. You are doing things for and with the girls that are creating such great memories for them. I have said it before but it is worth repeating, you are a GREAT mom and your girls are blessed to have you as their mother.
