parenting and stuff

i was solo parenting last week. 

we survived.

when we found out soccer practice was cancelled, we had a spa night instead. i straightened everyones hair. they liked that. this was the pic we sent to daddy in the morning... on their way out the door to school.

this weekend L & D had soccer games. L's team has been a team for quite some time, so they do fun things like a "make up station"... black under eye stuff... whatever that's called... so they can see in the sun.
R wanted some too.

the games were at the same time... so I was at L's & dad was at D's. auntie sarah & chillen joined us. R liked that a lot. they rolled down the hills, attempted to dump everyones water bottles, etc. darling.

this little girl lost her first tooth. 
it was very exciting.
 all of her sisters lost their first tooth at 4 yrs. old.
she's 6. she was getting a little worried.
i personally was soaking up that adorable baby tooth smile for as long as i could.

we are so enjoying our sweet 6 yr. old  right now.
she has been very cuddly, happy at school, excited for the baby & generally happy about life lately.
it's adorable.

refreshing compared to some of the tween behavior we have been experiencing.
don't get me wrong, the tweens are just as delightful in their own way. hilarious at times.
but at other times..... look out.
i may have suggested that one of my cherubs should possibly go dunk her head in some holy water.
she kindly suggested that i might do the same.
luckily we both thought that was pretty funny.

one last goodbye to the cutest little puppies ever...

 the other day P and I were able to enjoy a day date thanks to my ma. we headed over to chili's. we used to love to go there in college. we would split the single order of fajitas (they were $7.99) add on two side salads (.99) and split the fudge brownie sundae (4.99)

well the prices have gone up a little bit... and it's not quite as delicious as i remember it being in college...

however it was just as fun.
i really love this pic from a recent ladies game night at my friend's house. helpful ladies i tell ya.

i have started watching season 1 of downton abbey. i have never been a big fan of period pieces. i can't stand them. but i'm sticking thru it to see what all the fuss is about. it kinda makes me crazy how they are always needing to rest... from what? they do absolutely nothing all day. i only like the doctor so far... cousin matthew. but what's with all the cousins getting married? weird.

Downton is one of the best shows ever!! I hated everyone at first but they all change... Well most of them anyways for the better!!! It is so good!
