Cleaning the Fridge

Sometimes I really like when Jeremy works nights. It is never more than four days in a row, and when he's working I can get a lot of "weird" cleaning done.

If he was home and I felt the need to clean the fridge at 8:00 at night, he'd roll his eyes so hard he'd probably hurt himself...

So I cleaned out the fridge. 

Eli helped by taking all the food out.

Iris helped by choosing snacks she had to eat immediately. 

She had strawberries, cottage cheese and pickles. 

If I hadn't been busy cleaning, I'd totally have joined her. That is totally a prego lady snack!

After I had the fridge empty, Iris helped by dancing inside.

(Yes, we had the "never close the door on someone in the refrigerator" talk)

Eli decided he had to get in on that action

Someone come look inside my fridge! It's sooo clean!

As unladylike as this is, I'm relieved. Eli still refuses to deal with his own boogers. :P

Eli's Birthday Present

It was in the yard for over an hour before he noticed it. We sent him on several errands into the yard, and he walked right by... 

He loves his trampoline!

Happy Birthday to My Very Big Boy







Dear Eli,

A very happy birthday to you today. I am so proud you; of your strength, your kind soul and your cheerful spirit. I loved you the first time I saw you, and you'll always be my special brown-eyed boy. Always remember who you are, and that your parents love you! 

Love, Mom

This morning for breakfast, Iris ate four pancakes. 

Eli ate one.

The winner!

Eli and I picked out fabric, and I've started making his summer pjs... 

Started, cause I've got lots of projects going right now!

Here is his favorite pair...

Cleaning Your Room to the Beat of Your Own Drum

Eli and Iris were supposed to be cleaning their room...

Instead they had a jam session. 

With Dad. (Who was supposed to be helping)

Their room never did get cleaned...
