Then there were the requisite getting wet and muddy (I've resigned myself to the fact that Moses goes through at least two pair of pants each day) and game of "you'd better not step on my shadow!"

And now I'm off to get my hands on some of that new fabric. :)

In other news, I finally broke down and bought a girdle. To all of my friends who read this and have not yet had babies: a girdle is a terrible yet wonderful invention that puts everything back in place that isn't there anymore after having a baby. I've spent the last two years doing every variation of the sit-up that fitness magazines have ever published and have finally been forced to admit defeat. That extra "stuff" doesn't seem to have anywhere to go and just doesn't want to morph back into muscle. SO, given the fact that we have a "black-tie optional" wedding to attend tonight, and the fact that I don't feel like spending 4 hours "sucking-it-in," I bought a girdle, and I LOVE IT!!! It's like having my old body back, minus the ability to take deep breaths. But I can forego being fully oxegynated for a few hours if it means not looking several months pregnant in my nice new dress. Happy Friday everyone!

... and this is the "after" picture:
I figured that instead of showing you more of what I've been making, I'd show you all a bit of what my husband has been doing. He's a landscape contractor and he's just finishing up this gorgeous job (no, this is not our house...). This is the back of the house and just part of the almost 1 acre that he's landscaping. Isn't it beautiful?!?! Before he completes the job I'm going to go out there and take some more blog-worthy pictures to show off his skills.

Here is a super fun, easy, and cheap activity that will be a BIG hit with your kids. Named "the ice trick" by Moses' friend Keefe who taught it to us, all it requires is food coloring, water, and a bunch of different sized containers that are freezer friendly.
Fill all the containers with water and have fun adding different combinations of food coloring. Two is definitely too young to fully grasp the idea that "blue and red make purple," but you should have seen Moses' eyes light up when he stirred those two colors together and they "magically" became a different color all together!
This is a kind of messy activity, and I haven't quite figured out how to avoid getting food coloring on your hands, but Keefe's mom assures me the green washes out in a few days. :)
Put all the colored water containers in the freezer and (here's the hard part) wait for them to become huge colorful ice cubes of all different shapes and sizes. We're still in this phase, but I've promised Moses that after his nap he can play with them in the tub. I'll let you know how it goes...
