Our First Egg Hunt was at Aunt Andi's house! She had a fun bean bag toss planned for the kids! Nana made the cutest carrot shaped bean bags! The kids loved it! Yes it was FREEZING that day!
These are the pictures after the first showing of Music America! This is one of Darby's closest friends out here in California. Amanda Myers. She is a doll face. I really like her. She is an adorable down to earth girl with great parents. She is a good friend who loves Darby for who she is. She loves to be a corn ball with Darby too!
Is is ok that I like it that they cry when they leave? They literally break down in tears. Sometimes they run away from their parents. There are threats of not coming back if they act like this. There are bribes that if they stop crying, they can come back or they can have candy or treats or all things good! I just LOVE that THEY love to come to my house and play with us and don't want to leave! I love that we get to be near them. I HATE that I am not near more of my nieces and nephews so that I can be that to them too. For now though I will take this as much as I can! and I will relish it!
|these two are the perfect description of what we call "a pack of Jeffords" They do NOT let each other down! They are "a pack of Jeffords and Jeffords stick together!"|
Uncle Ryeley came for a quick visit to pick up the drums! Juliet was in HEAVEN! He is of course one of her favorite people! He always has been! The feeling is mutual! She literally runs into his arms. He drove all night to get here.
One Sunday Morning Dash had on a dirty shirt. When I told him he had to change he threw a fit. He HATES buttoning his shirts. SO once it's on he doesn't care what it looks like! When I tried to take his shirt off he FLIPPED out and tried to run away from me. He tripped over something on the floor and fell onto the fireplace mantle. Our fireplace mantle happens to be a bench mantle. It was a blunt trauma to the chin. I knew as soon as it happened he would need stitches. It was crushed open. I am sure it is the first time of many times to that area! He went the hospital with daddy then came home to snuggle with mommy. He was super brave when he got the stitches! Moral of the story? DON'T AWAY FROM YOUR MAMA WHEN SHE SAYS TO CHANGE YOUR DIRTY SHIRT!!! ;)
|that is not me lounging on the couch...it is Darby! :)|
We had a great time working on cake decorating with the activity day girls. We used the Pampered Chef Prep Cups and baked mini cakes for Polly Pocket "Barbie" cakes. They had a ton of fun doing individual cakes. It was great fun seeing all their personalities come out. We used frosting from the tub though and I would highly recommend using the buttercream kind that you make for decorating. The tub kind gets soft and tends to melt.
