Ponytails and Pears

Yesterday was a wonderful vacation day! We spent the majority of the day at home cleaning, playing outside, mowing the yard, playing outside some more, fertilizing the yard, playing some more... you get the picture. The children napped simultaneously for 2 1/2 hours as well!!! Tony and I actually got to spend some quality time together, just the two of us. That hasn't happened in a long time. We had beautiful weather and ended the day with a trip to Nana and Grandad's for some yummy BBQ ribs and shrimp.

Today, we were afraid it would be rainy all day, but thankfully we were able to enjoy an overcast but warm day (which is a little better for our fair skinned children) Here is Raegan enjoying her new playhouse. This was one of our latest bargains. Our friend Lisa had a neighborhood yardsale, and her neighbor was selling this playhouse for $35. It has been a favorite of Raegan's and all her little buddies who come and play.Notice her ponytail on top of her head. I must say, Raegan had "ponytail envy" on Sunday. A little girl, Tannith, in our nursery had a ponytail on top of her head and this morning when fixing Raegan's hair, she insisted her ponytail be "Up Here" like Tannith's. She did look pretty cute. :) Batter up! She can actually hit the ball very well. She makes her daddy so proud :)
Our other yardsale bargain was this Little Tikes Climbing toy. We paid $10 for this thing which costs $80 brand new. What a deal!!!

And Drew is being adventurous these days as well. He got to try pears for the first time today. This is the first food besides rice cereal, he has had. Here were the results. I mixed it with some rice cereal first to warm him up to it. He seems to be saying, "Not TOO bad"
Here he is trying the pears all by itself. I loved this expression. He shivered at the taste, but opened his mouth right back up. I just mixed a little in his cereal after this. It looked to painful to give it straight.
As you can see, even a few spoons of sour pears won't make this sweet fella upset. He is such a sweet baby. And for the last two weeks, he has been sleeping 10 or 11 hours straight at night!!! What a wonderful present for this momma! Sanity seems to be creeping its way back into this house :)
