Where has the summer gone??!

I have to apologize for being such a terrible blogger lately! I just dont know where the days seem to go! Life is just crazy right now! I still can't believe that in just a few weeks we'll be back to our typical school day routine. WOW! (I have to admit that I'm looking forward to it though.. we thrive off of a strict routine!)

Here's a little re-cap of life lately.. warning.. VERY random!! ha!

When Chris and Ethan saw the ad on TV for the Baskin Robbins baseball cap ice cream cups.. we just HAD to go! ha! And no doubt, he made me call every BR in our area to see which one had a Cubs cup! Luckily, one did.. so we went straight there! haha!

They were SO excited!! This was just after naps, so please excuse how rough E looks! ;)

E is just like his Mama.. he filled his cup up with strawberry! :)

This picture.. WOW! Ok.. so, for those of you that have seen Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakqual, I'm sure you know the scene where Simon gets a "swirly"... right?! Well, this is Ethan's favorite movie.. and THAT is his favorite part! So, what does he do the other night after watching the movie... he went into the downstairs half bath and gave himself a "swirly"!!!!! OH MY GOODNESS!!! He just thought this was hilarious! Fortunately, my grandmother was there to witness this mayhem! She was laughing hysterically! Of course, LK couldn't help herself and gave him a mowhawk!

SOOO funny!

We went to Gram's to go swimming and Mom gave LK a ride in her car.. she LOVED it! :)

The other night Huck and Ethan snuggled in bed with me... one of my favorite things to do! :) When I glanced over and saw this, I couldn't help but snap a pic. These two just love each other! It's so sweet.. a boy and his dog!

I mean... that is just LOVE!

Ethan has definitely enjoyed school this summer.. each day he goes is a different activity day.. like, "Ice Cream Sundae Day", "Luau Day", "Movie and Popcorn Day", "Pajama/Camp Out Day". The other day was "Cowboy Day".. so we dressed E up in his cowboy attire! I sewed some brown material on his jeans to look like chaps, and made him a little vest out of some left over cowboy print material! It turned out pretty cute!! I really wish he had some cowboy boots to wear.. :( .. maybe next year!

He ended up giving his bandana to his sweet friend, Miss Causey! (i think he has a little crush on her!) ;)

I even appliqued a little horseshoe on the back! :)

This is what bedtime has looked like lately!! I LOVE it! :)

LK has been LOVING ballet this summer!! After 18 years of my own ballet lessons, this just makes my heart go pitter patter! It just makes me giddy to watch her! :) The other day I snuck up to the door to get a peek of her.. she is just so attentive of her teacher and learning everything "just right"!

Last week, she had ballet camp. She went every day and they learned parts of the Sleeping Beauty Ballet. This was definitely right up her alley! Sleeping Beauty is one of her most favorite movies. Around the age of 2 she would watch over and over and over! On Friday, the parents go to go watch what they had learned. It was just precious! Her posture was just perfect and she's learned all of the positions and arm movements! I am enjoying watching her and even practicing with her!

The other morning, Chris and Ethan had to go over to Nana & Papa's to cut a tree down, so I treated LK to breakfast at Sonic! YUM! Huck was upset that the boys left without him, so he insisted on joining us!

Saturday night, the kids had their first sleepover with Aunt Brittany! They were SO excited! Chris and I were excited to get a night alone! :) We went to dinner, ran a few errands and then headed to the Germantown Sidewalk Sale. Chris was so sweet and indulged me with a few purchases! :)

When we stopped at Target, I FINALLY spotted these animal crackers! Lilly Pulitzer!! LK has several of her dresses and I just love all of her designs. I knew she would be so excited to get these.. so I bought out what they had! ha! Chris thought I was crazy.. lol. She is dying for the LP paper doll set!

I just had to post this!! It's been so hot in the afternoons that I let Ethan bring his skateboard inside. He can only ride in the kitchen and must wear a helmet.. it's hilarious to watch him!! He loves it though and is already pretty good!

Well.. I'll try to be a better blogger from now on! :) We have exciting changes coming soon.. so i'll be sure to post all about it!
