Ha, Morgan is always reminding me that I need to give up stuff in order to rest more (or not have a mental breakdown). Unfortunately, his suggestions veer more toward not volunteering as much, or not making people new baby dinners (i.e. productive things I also enjoy). I was hoping to give up vacuuming or washing dishes or washing children or weeding or laundry.
We had a weekend full of parties-
Deeds had a couple of parties this weekend as well.
Gameday babies at Charlie's first birthday!
DH wants to go to Leigh's house every day now, after her son, Carter's first birthday. Baby pool and that Step 2 roller coaster? She was in heaven.
Mama baby selfie. I got into the action with a baby shower and watching the UGA and the UT games out at a friend's house, but of course I have no pictures of that.
Sunday night Dell Harper and I "made" star cookies.
I tried rolling out a tube of slice and bank sugar cookies, and quickly realized this would not work out like I had envisioned. However, she had a blast dumping sprinkles and playing with the dough (with clean hands). The cookies were more lump like than stars, but they tasted good.
Deeds new bag? Crawling over to the coffee table, pulling up on his knees, removing every catalog and magazine, then chewing on the edge. Said coffee table purchased for $20 on Craigslist, and chalk painted by moi. Probably not the best thing for him to be gnawing on, but once again, the reason I refuse to buy expensive things for the foreseeable future.
No wonder a nervous breakdown is imminent. Blogging break is over- time to pick up kiddos from school then get back to work (deep breath, deep breath).
