...Char was sleeping so peacefully Monday morning that I didn't want to wake her up. ...she made me a pretty picture at school with chalk. ...she continued her obsession with the easel and colored (and watched Toy Story ) while waiting for Daddy to get home from work. Hooray for panties! ...it got cold and windy again, but we played outside anyways. Isaac played catch with the neighbor boys, while JJ flew the kite and Char strutted her stuff. ...the girls danced around the living room. There is an iTunes Radio station called 'Frozen Radio' that the girls are crazy about. They play random Disney songs, and we listen to it all.the.time. (After watching this a few times, I realized that Char was trying to sing "friend in" as in "You've Got a Friend In Me".) ...Grace put Charley to bed by tickling her face. ...the girls got cake pops. Yep, for breakfast. ...we got to school a few minute
Isaac's dad gave him a gun for his 21st birthday. It came in extra handy, because we had someone call our house and cuss me out in a whisper in the middle of the night one time. I was terrified to stay at home alone ever again, but having a gun around helped. He taught us each how to handle it, and what to do if something happened. Isaac took a while, but he finally got his concealed weapons permit this past year. Our next step was picking out a gun for me. I wasn't 100% sure that I wanted my own, but now that I've got Grace, it's definitely a good idea. We go a lot of places alone together, and it's better to be safe than sorry. Last week, we stopped over to visit Isaac's dad, and he told us about this awesome new gun they had at the gun shop he works at. We decided to go check it out. It was beautiful, so we knew we had to get it. After discussing it for a while, we came home with this little beauty: The picture really doesn't do it justice.
Picture of the Week: The Sleepiest Kid Ever When I pick Perry up in the afternoons, we have to wait for about twenty minutes before Grace and Char get back from school. I actually kind of love it, because it gives me a chance to hang in Perry's classroom when they are doing afternoon crafts. Monday, they made barns out of chocolate graham crackers and marshmallow fluff. Perry's favorite part was eating it, and she shared with her sisters in the car as we drove home. We made salads for dinner, and she kept begging Daddy for bites. He decided it was easier to just share the whole bowl with her. Perry is definitely our best eater of the bunch and loves pretty much everything you give her, including most veggies. She was being super silly in the bath, so I gave her a mohawk to go with her sass. While I was combing her hair, she found the tweezers on the counter, and kept calling them "teezwers". It was adorable, so I had to get a video.
