april wrap-up

4.2-not the best way to start out the day. this is what happens when you open the fridge, a tomato makes a break for it and escapes the fridge and then a cantaloupe promptly chases it, landing right on top of the tomato. oh and it looks like a strawberry escaped as well. darn produce.
"whahappened?" says river.
"sad amato" she says. :)
flower also lost her second tooth!

and finally, we got these beautiful organic heirloom tomatoes and they became lunch, snack and dinner for several days.
the girls loved just sprinkling some salt and pepper on them and eating them up!

4.5-playing on skateboards at the school with carol4.6-
the squirrels like to come in and play
4.7-i have joined the ranks of my white trash tenants. as i was hanging up the girls clothes i found this lovely mural on their wall. they did this and then slid the other hanging clothes in front of it to hide their work. sneaky buggers.flower claimed it was river. um, last time i checked, river can't write or spell flower's name correctly. nice try sister.

4.12-river wanted a bun in her hair and then asked me to take a photo.she has such an amazing neck!

flower then followed suit and wanted a bun and a photo. :)

kg and river went to jamba juice for me, only to discover it was no longer there. i am so sad! they walked around the complex waiting for the creperie to open and brought us some yummy crepes for lunch.
that night we went to wok inn noodle for dinner. yum!
4.15-every friday i pick up flower from school and then we go to the post office. we usually stop for a treat and today was aspen leaf.
she always gets chocolate with mini chocolate chipsi love mango with raspberries.
4.16-laura watched the girls while i worked and had them spend the night the day before. thanks laura! saturday we went to the mullin's endowment session. my anxiety got the best of me because i was very nervous about not having someone i knew sitting next to me. i came back for the sealing since i could sit with kg. it was beautiful and their little baby is a doll. i'm so happy for this cute family!
4.17-happy birthday royal! we watched tangled and fell asleep.4.19-this was a changing day for me. after a rough day the day before, i woke up feeling changed and things have been on the up and up ever since! yay!
4.20-this was a tough day that instilled that i can't truly trust anyone. but i'm not letting it get me down!
4.21-happy 40th birthday roger!
the squirrel trying to get in

talking to kg on the phone while she brushes her teeth. :)

4.22-i missed a tattoo appointment i had waited 8 months for. i'm so sad.
river was making herself at home at the office with the pretzels and lynnette's glasses. :)

4.29-we played sp-uno for the first time in a long while!
john and i got into two good fights for the spoon and they both left me quite bruised. :)

4.30-whenever kg gives me my b-12 shot river insists on holding my hand. she's such a sweetheart!
flower wrote this story in school after drawing the picture above it. kg and i had a good laugh!
"after listening to this story. I think that frog and toad did not lick ghosts." we laughed so hard that she put lick instead of like. it provides a much better visual! :) i love that she's reading and writing.
and i bid fairwell to april! and i'm so excited for may!

bye bye birdie

the 28th i was given some free tickets to bye bye birdie. i called sandee, kristen and amanda. amanda couldn't go so sandee brought kas. first we all met at asiago's for dinner. sandee had a $25 off coupon so we all saved a bit. it was nice. from there, kg took the girls and cameron for ice cream at ben and jerry's and then home.

sandee, me, kristen and kas went to the play. we really enjoyed it. i've gone to a lot more plays this year and i'm sure loving it!
can't wait for the next one!

a beautiful wednesday

wednesday the 27th was the first nice day i remember having this spring. as river and i were walking to work we weren't shivering so we took that opportunity to open the office and then go for a walk delivering notices. as i was holding river's hand she so sweetly looked up and said, "i love holding your hand". it totally melted my heart!

we also walked over by the gym and saw two geese above us. one of them pooped right as we walked up and it missed river's head by mere inches. gross!

that afternoon the girls went to carol's and enjoyed more time outside. we love carol and her grandson chase! he lives with carol.
river, chase and puppy dog charlie.

carol gave flower some roller skates and was teaching her how to skate.

river loves to ride down the ramp!
they've been so wonderful to us. and carol told me that she's not sure she and chase would have made it through some things lately without the girls there. chase's mom ended up in a mental facility and chase's sister moved to oregon with her dad as a result. carol has always played a huge role in her two grandkid's lives because her daughter has struggled mentally and with various addictions. she has finally chosen to get help and turned the kids over to people who can raise them better. it's been the best thing for both kids but it's been incredibly hard on carol, chase and tatum(the granddaughter). carol started watching the girls right before all this happened so carol said the girls are definitely a bright spot in their lives right now. i'm so glad it's such a good situation for both sides.

Let's kick it.

can you dig it?
