Just another day

This week has been busy.  My hubby's bro and sister in law came into town for a few days.  We had so much fun seeing them and having Uncle "B" rowdy up my boys right before bedtime.  We all love them and had a great time having them here.
As most of you know, my mom is getting married.  I am planning and decorating and am grateful to have a friend helping me.  Last night we got so much done and I feel like I just finished a big report for school or something.  Feels good to have it all down on paper--seeing how it turns out may be a different story.  But I think it will be really nice.
Today during co-op for the boys, I took Abby for a quick shopping trip.  I found her a cute dress for the wedding and found Carter a nice suit.  I was SO excited to find them, only to get home and find out that the suite coat doesn't match the pants!  I'm really hoping I can return it and get a good set.  Carter tried it on and looked like G-Q smooth!  I bought the boys matching ties, too.  I really enjoy finding cute stuff for my kids, at real stores.  By real stores, I mean most of my shopping for the kids is done at Once Upon a Child, garage sales, or hand-me-downs.  Don't let me fool you though, I'm all about finding a good sale at a "real" store.  End of the season sales are great :)
And now we're home.  I'm enjoying the sound of Abby making noises at the flowers and rocks in a bowl I have on the table.  She keeps making sounds, and then whispering to each item.  Wonder what she is saying.  She's probably explaining why her face is getting red for a moment and then quickly back to normal color--then back to red.  Thank goodness those rocks and flowers can't smell, because I know what she's doing.  I'm off to get the diaper and wipes....

I hadn't heard your mom was getting married. I'll have to pass the news on to my parents. Tell her I send her my best.
