A Time Saver

Den'ja LOVES to play out back on the swingset. The other day I was trying to finish cleaning up the kitchen when Den'ja started whining at the back door like a dog that really had to go pee. Haha. I decided that the dishes could wait and out we went. While we were playing he discovered that it is much quicker to climb up the slide then it is to take the ladder. I believe that this will be his default method of scaling the swingset from now on.
The people that lived in our house before we bought it really loved yard ornaments. They left a ton of them and since I'm not a big yard ornament person I let Maeson use them to decorate the swingset (aka her house). When Den'ja saw poor Mr. Terra Cotta Turtle and Miss Plastic Ladybug he thought that they would enjoy a little fun on the slide. I think he had more fun pushing them down then he did pushing himself down!

It's really too bad that I practically die when I am outside for more than oh, 2 minutes! This awful allergy season had better be over soon! It was worth the runny nose, itchy eyes, and sneezes though buddy!!

Photo Shoot

I love taking pictures of my little guy. Especially since he seems to grow and change everyday! I just think he is adorable and he make the silliest faces!

Cupcakes and Shoes

I found a cupcake kit on clearance at TJ Maxx and knew that Maeson would just love it. It had everything that you need to make a dozen cupcakes complete with sprinkles. Maeson's has already decided that in life everything is better with sprinkles. She wants to put them on everything we make. Den'ja LOVED eating the sprinkles

Don't mind my squinty eye. We're lucky if we get one eye open with me. Two is simply too much to ask.

This sunday before I took Maeson back to her grandma's I walked into her room to find her frantically shoving her shoes onto a shelf. This picture is where her shoes go when they are put away.

And here is her handywork

When I asked her why she was putting her shoes on that shelf she said that she didn't want Den'ja to get them. I had to laugh. Den'ja loves shoes. He is especially concerned with the poor shoes that aren't being worn. We seriously can't leave our shoes out or else he follows us around with them until we put them on. I found it hillarious that she was worried that while she was gone Den'ja would be hauling her shoes around. After she was gone I put them back where they belong. And yes Den'ja has already drug them out of her room. Shhhh! Don't tell.
