I haven’t done an update for the last few weeks… so little time…so much life to live!
Two days before the baptism Sweet Peach decided she’d cut one side of her hair off because ‘it bothered her’. It’s kind of hard to tell in the picture above because I pulled all I could over and added a bow, but a mullet is not cute on a 3 year old!
So Monday I took her to get her hair cut. Then Cherish decided she wanted her’s cut too, so that was Wednesday. They are both loving the carefree summer style!
Olivia and I will be catering a wedding next weekend, it will have an Indian theme. I don’t know the first thing about Indian food, but Olivia does, so she has been practicing a lot.

Jeff has been putting in a LOT of hours this week so most nights we’ve eaten without him. One night we had a friend over. After supper we pushed back the furniture, turned on some YouTube karaoke songs and sang…badly. Then we pulled up some fun line dances. We need to make fun memories on purpose…be deliberate… be silly!
Olivia has been in one of her ‘get-r-done’ modes lately…I LOVE IT! This week she and Emma tackled our hall closet. First you need to know, I like to paint! Every few years there will be a big change of color somewhere in our house. We’ve been here 24 years and it’s an ongoing joke that our house is probably tornado proof from all the layers of paint on the walls.
But for some reason, there are 2 closets in this house that have never been painted or updated in anyway. I did not get a good before picture of this closet, but trust me it was bad. So Olivia and Emma decided to give it a makeover. Make sure your girls have skills, being able to cut a board and level up a shelf is just as important as cooking a meal!
They ripped out the few unpainted shelves that were in it and put in more. Then they painted it and thew away a BUNCH OF JUNK! They did a great job! I hope it will last a while.
Our summer has been filled with trips to the library for their summer reading activities!
And rainy day activities…paper airplanes…
and living room tents.
LOTS of swimming, of course!
And what is summer without kids and critters?
