The Pinata

Ella made a pinata at summer camp this week and was very anxious to bust it open. Of course she had to wait for me to get my camera.

Olivia was trying to figure out what we were doing.

We first tried hanging it from our storage building, but with the first swing Ella broke it's string.

So Ken got to hold it.

He was a little nervous.

Olivia thought it was funny.

Now Ella keeps asking to eat all the candy.

Olivia doesn't ask.

She just eats it when we aren't looking.

Licking The Beaters

The other night I wanted something sweet so I decided to make chocolate chunk M&M cookies and put homemade icing on them.

I guess I wanted something REALLY sweet.

I let Ella and Olivia lick the beaters from the icing. I didn't take any pictures of Ella licking them because lets face it, there are some things that just aren't as cute when a 6 year old does them.

Please ignore the messy hair, we had been swimming earlier.

She really enjoyed her icing!

At one point she said "I like it!"

And I liked it too!

Last Weekend...

We went to Louisville to visit my Grandparents.

We ate popsicles.

Ran in the grass.

Swung in the swing. (Not sure if that's correct grammar, but it's what we did)

Picked "flowers".

And made crowns with our "flowers".

We also swam A LOT and went to a fabric store, but I didn't take pictures of that.

We had a good time visiting with everyone and I think Ella and Olivia are ready to go back.

Olivia says my grandparents names so funny. We told her we were going to Mamaw and Papaw's house and she kept saying hapaw-hapaw-hapaw house. That might not make much sense when you read it, but hearing her say it is so funny. And honestly it doesn't make much sense when she says it either.

Oh Henry...

I have been meaning to post these pictures of my nephew for over a month now and just haven't gotten around to it.

He has grown so much since I took these back in April, I need to take some more updated ones.

He had his baby dedication on Sunday. I hate that we missed it.

I think I would have hated it even more if I had gone to it and puked in the middle of church.

Did I mention I haven't been feeling good?

I am sure that everyone appreciated me staying home.

Splish Splash

Olivia got a little plastic pool with a slide for her birthday and she is loving it. Ella is also enjoying "helping" Olivia in the pool.

I think we will be spending lots of our summer in a pool. We have already had several very hot days.
