It's been awhile since I logged on every day to record some highlight of our day and after going back and reading a few old posts I decided I really like having that to look at so I'm going to try to keep up again.

Today I went to Karate and then to the shop for a shower. Samantha came to watch the kids and I went out with Abbie for the afternoon.
We got piercings (I thought I had it out of my system,I really did. Maybe this time?)Abbie was a brave girl. She only cried one tear!
We then blindly followed Tom-Tom to Whole Foods (we thought) but he led us nowhere. Note to self. Tom-Tom is not to be trusted. Thank you random girl at 7-11 for proper directions.
While in Whole Foods Abbie made a life change. She recognized the fact that sea salt is better for you than regular salt(and I still stand by my self proclaimed statement that sea salt is saltier than regular salt) I'm sure she did not just buy it because the girl who pierced her nose said she had to use it for cleaning three times a day. No,I'm sure it was just the first step on the road to a healthier her.
While eating at Pei-Wei (For two hours? Why would you ask that? Of course it doesn't take that long to eat pad thai...) Abbie suggested something we might try for Clara that would help getting her into bed easier. It involved pennies in a jar and taking away one if there are any problems. I revised it a bit and it was decided that the girls would get a penny in a jar each morning if they went to bed without any problems. After seven pennies there would be a prize. They've found these little purses with an animal inside at Claire's that is going to be the first goal.
Bedtime was a breeze tonight...

Today we visited Granny. We went to the park to play then to Sonic for lunch. Back at her house the girls hunted frogs. Silas took a long nap and while Granny and the girls took a rest I went to the resale barn to look for bargains. I found some great candle holders.
Shiloh's mom came in from Houston to stay the night. She is on her way to Lubbock. The girls were super wired at bedtime, they will not be getting their penny in the morning...

This morning after Grandma left our house the kids and I got ready and met up with Shiloh and Blake and Abbie and Kyle and Kolten and Hayden at Chipoltle. Mmmmmmmm.
Abbie and the girls and I ran some errands while Silas napped at the shop.
I brought the kids home and put them to bed because Shiloh is working late. The girls will get a penny in the morning!
Everyone is supposed to come over and watch a movie if they get done working soon. If.

Today Shiloh took the kids to the shop while I slept late. I got up and went thrift store shopping for awhile.
The girls had a skating birthday party to go to this afternoon. It was their first time skating and they had fun. Cecily was upset she didn't know how to skate perfectly right away.
After the party I took them to see the new Ice Age movie. They loved it! It was cute.
Target before home for some necessities.
The girls are in bed now. They earned their third penny tonight.
We are watching Defiance now. Silas is still up. He had a fun day with Daddy. He thinks he is all grown up now.

This morning I got up early with the kiddos. I gave them grapes,mango,and clementines for breakfast. I cleaned a bit but got discouraged cause everything was just getting undone as fast as I'd just done it (Sorry couldn't help myself. Feeling very Texan,also country). Shiloh sent me and the kids outside while he did a quick clean sweep and then announced he was taking the kids to the shop.
I pushed aside my giddiness at some alone time and said I would get all the laundry done.
It's just been laundry and this computer all afternoon. Now it is bedtime and I'm wondering just what kind of fun they might be up to.
Cecily came in with a surprise! She walked in the door and announced she has a loose tooth! She actually has two. I told her not to loose her teeth and stay a little girl. She shrugged and said "Well, I can't do that". :)
