Taxes, Messes & Outings...

I am a big fan of Saturdays :o) Sleeping in, leisurely breakfast, hanging out, watching movies, shopping, etc... What's not to like?

Well, if you (or your spouse) is a cpa...Saturdays look a lot more like any other day of the week from January through April :o( We miss our sweet boy on just isn't the same without him! Three Saturdays down, only 11 more to go!

I feel almost guilty getting to hang out on Saturdays knowing my sweet hubby is working away "counting beans." Almost...until I look around and realize I have all four kids to myself for another day and then I feel like he's got the easy end of the stick...haha! Just kidding! I do NOT miss my "bean counting" days AT ALL!

I went out of the room for a few minutes this morning and came back to this...
day 21 2011a
The picture is a bit deceiving. You really cannot tell how MUCH stuff is in their "fun pile." How in the world can they make such a big mess in the matter of a few minutes? Actually, I was thinking, "Who cares about the mess, at least they are happily playing together." Can I get an Amen? Does anyone elses kids aggravate each other on a minute to minute basis? Drives me c.r.a.z.y!

Since I really need to go to the grocery store and didn't have the energy to tackle that fun, fun task today, we headed to Chic-Fil-A for lunch :o)
Sweet Jonah LOVED playing in the play area. He spent most of the time cruising around the glass windows waving and smiling at people. He loves to meet new people :o)

Hi Sophie Le!
day 21 2011 c

After lunch, we stopped by Target and I found some pink and red Christmas knee high socks in the girls' department for $1 a pair!!! Hello, Valentine legwarmers!!! Whoo hoo!

I had good intentions of taking some pictures of the kids today, but it didn't happen. I snapped a couple as we were heading out for pizza & a movie tonight...
Sweet sisters (is it just me or is Hillary Ashton looking older?)
I finished up this outfit for Sophie Le this morning. It was my first time sewing with a knit fabric (for the top). It was tricky, but I love the how soft the fabric is...I also love the how she accessorized with her sister's pink scarf :o)

Come back tomorrow for a giveaway!

Gosh that top looks great on Sophie Le! We have that same pink scarf... she has such good taste. ;)

I'm often home alone with all 6 kids.. I feel your pain! And I lol about the "who cares about the mess.. at least they're playing happily!" Oh yes! AMEN!

I hear you about the kids playing well together! Any time they are quiet and getting along is a good time for me regardless of the incredible mess they can make. And, my dad is a CPA, so I totally understand tax season. May it go smoothly for you all!
