Time is a tricky little devil Houdini. It got away from me again… Maybe one of these days I’ll have time to keep up with everything going on.
Iron Man 3 came out so the Hughes family hit the theaters. It was a pretty late show but all the kids made it though. IM3 didn’t disappoint- quite a blast.
Fran hosted her niece Natasha’s bridal shower at our hose. I was in the office putting together list basket (on the right) of party favors and it sounded like everyone was having a great time. Congrats Tasha!
Mother’s Day was on the 12th this year. The kids all made cute cards for Fran (I bought a cute card). Despite my protests Fran decided she wanted a new sewing machine. She’s such a good mom that we decided to oblige her.
Look at those kids! So full of mom-love. In the afternoon we went to see some more moms (my mom & grandma). We ate together, visited and played at the local park. Thanks to all the wonderful moms in our lives- we love you!
We decided to start a family puzzle. It took us a few days of work but we got it all together! Claire & Mike were really helpful and put some pretty big chunks together. Remember: Build the puzzle edges out first. Then sort the remaining pieces by color. When you cry don’t get the pieces wet or they won’t fit correctly. Here’s our finished puzzle.
I’m sure ever parent thinks they’re kids are the cutest. But have your kids every put socks on their ceiling fan? Maybe this is more bizarre than cute, but I got a kick out of it. And watching toddlers do grown up things is adorable. Here is Chloe helping me clean one one of my cars (she did a great job).
Also of note is this picture of five cubic yards of dirt. If you only need a few bags full, don’t buy this much to get “free delivery” because it may very well end up spread across your driveway (a not cute characteristic of our kids).
Fran’s parents came to visit and we took them to Ruth’s Chris. A delicious meal with delightful people – them, not me, of course.
