those pictures i mentioned

For pretty much the entire month of May, we didn't go outside much. I know. That's totally nutty and also totally unlike us. But, for some unknown reason, the cottonwood trees affected me dramatically this year and more than a few of us wanted to scratch our eyeballs out of our heads each night we'd been out. So, we were indoors an awful lot for such a lovely month.

But, we did have fun.

there was sewing going on

and, of course, plenty of lengthy, uninterrupted play

and books - always books

even crocheting (have I mentioned these girls are crafty?)

we did, sadly, struggle with a bit of sickness

if you can't read that, it says, "I am sick and it is beautiful outside."

we sewed blankies for precious Haitian children

with church friends

and decorated Daddy's birthday cake with fruit

maybe not all of the fruit


this one is

good thing he's cute

and we cooked light all month long - even for Sam's birthday dinner

it actually resembled the recipe photo (!)




(I've known him for half of them now)

yum - fun night :)

and now, the cottonwoods are done wreaking their havok, and we're hanging out poolside from now on. as much as is humanly possible :)
