Twofer Tuesday

We had a nice laid back Tuesday.  I was feeling so energetic this morning that I got some cleaning done before the movie and we were even early! The movie this week was "The Tale of Despereaux" and when we left the theater to go home and make lunch all of my kids wanted soup. Jake was all for making soup from scratch, but I told him it would take several hours before it would be ready to eat, so he compromised with canned soup but cooked on the stove top instead of the microwave.


After dinner tonight I came into the living room to find Lila doing this. She said she was making cookies, but big sister soon had her convinced they were perfect for an indoor snowball fight! Why do we spend money on toys and entertainments for our children when they would be perfectly fine with a cardboard box, sticks and string and random loose fiberfill?

I'm totally with you on this, Chrissy. Lucy's favorite thing to play with right now is tupperware (all over my kitchen floor). She also has a thing about rocks. Looks like your summer is going "swimmingly". Love ya.

Sophie's favorite things to play with are silly things like Ryan's hats and kitchen things. It's so cute! We went to the store last night and we walked down the toy isle wondering if we should get her some new toys. Ryan and I just looked at each other and laughed because the only thing Miss wanted was the package of napkins!
I'm so glad you guys are having a fun summer so far:)
