A break down of our Monday is as follows:
I let the children sleep late because, of course, I had to check out some of the offerings happening at Bloggy Giveaway! Luckily I had made our breakfast the night before - Baked Amish Oatmeal from Elise, which was delicious, by the way and even better this morning heated up with a little milk and a smidge of butter!
A friend called and needed some help for the day so within a half an hour her daughter Miss A (the same age as my Dear Daughter) was here and our day had begun.
Do some school, have lunch, and then off to piano lessons - we were there for 2 hours since Miss A has her lessons right before DS2, DS3 and DD. Fortunately, Miss A and DD had planned ahead and packed a little tote of stamping supplies! Here are a few of their creations:
Then it was home to prepare dinner, eat, clean up, and start working on the little quilt for DH.
As we were driving Miss A home, she and DD were being very silly in the back seat. They were using Pee Wee Herman-type voices (even though they have no idea who Pee Wee Herman is :-) which added to the silliness! We were laughing at their funnies - and for Ann's Monday Fun Day I will share one of their jokes:
Miss A: (in her throaty Pee Wee voice) I don't like coffee.
DD: (in her throaty Pee Wee voice) Coffee is bad, but there is one good thing about coffee . . . . Coffee CANDY!!
Peals of laughter ensued in which son and I looked at each other as if to say "What's funny about that?" and then just started laughing because their laughter was too contagious to resist.
And since we were laughing, they decided that it was good enough to say AGAIN! So they DID!!
