So here is a little sample of our day (all non-relatives can read at their own risk of boredom):
Emma and Sophie had fun painting this morning while Ethan was playing with the neighbor and Andrew was at golf. Notice the paint splatters all over her and the table cloth. You can't see the ones on the floor. They were all gone with a swipe of a wet paper towel. I love water colors!
We received the newest American Girl catalog in the mail today. It had a gazillion things Emma put on her birthday/Christmas list, but she was especially taken with the dolls having a picnic. The day was too muggy to have a picnic outside, but she and Sophie gathered some items to have an indoor picnic for their babies.
Ethan's newest obsession is air hockey. We've had the table for a while, but he recently rediscovered it, and is game to take anyone on, at any time. He even beat Elliott today... first time ever. It was a proud moment in P* family history!
We ended the day with Indian food for dinner, followed by chocolate cake (I made it today, just for fun!), and Andrew attempting the hardest level of Sudoku on Facebook with limited help from me. Yeah, Judy, that was round 2 of our game!
