Painting and Friends!

So..I've learned you don't go to the pediatrician..unless you really need to.  (Even to the well visits!)  Guess what lives there?  MORE germs than what you have at home!!  The only place Carter went last week with me was to the doctor's office.  And who got a virus with icky poop last week?  Only Carter.  Poor thing.  We are just about done, I think.  (I do you know?)  (umm..firmer?  stinkier?  colored darker?  It's hard to be sure!)

We were supposed to have a play date with a couple friends, but appointments then virus intervened. : (  I did however have a super fun playdate with MY friends!  We had a surprise party for my friend Tiffany at Painting with a Twist Saturday night and a wonderful dinner at Noodles.  It was just nice to have the girls together and to talk over dinner.  Moms are such great friends, they understand your excitement (over good poop maybe?) and your troubles (bad language was a common thread, haha!).  A lot of the girls are younger than me (well, I was the next to oldest!), but we have kids the same age. ; )  I think there is a lot of same-same.  Anyway, I came away with a great painting (I'll promise to try to get a picture!), and I hope Tiffany had a great birthday celebration.  She sure deserves it, she's an amazing person!  (but she'd never tell you that, since she's so humble!!)

Mary Claire has been working on her science fair project..which fingernail polish lasts the longest.  And I was amazed.  I (and she!) voted for OPI.  However, it was Sinful Colors from Target.  Like..lasted five times as long.  And it doesn't even have tolulene or formaldehyde!  Now I know why my polish doesn't last as long as it could.  We took pictures after every dishwashing (to simulate showers and handwashing), and we were amazed.  I think I'll keep washing the plate to see how long it actually makes it.  (Just for me to know!)  Here are the ones she sampled:
This is the before, all painted and labeled. ; )

..and the after.  Only one hanging in there!
And now..dum, da-da, dum.. Lots of pictures since I uploaded my camera! : )

Ethan's sixth birthday party at the Little Gym!

The first birthday party E.V.E.R. where I got to sit and talk..they entertained, led activities, and took pictures!

how my baby looks through the window...

and what he does with a window!  Thanks to Brady's mom for capturing the slobber! ; )

Happy Birthday, sweet boy!  He was getting tired.

They even helped him stand at the front door to hand out goody bags and say thanks for coming!

..and here is my Love Bandit! ; )

I got all ready for Valentine's day..I removed the garland, and changed my chalkboard.  'Cause I'm so detailed like that. haha!

And this year, I took the time to pick out Easter clothes for the kids!  I usually get all the boys matching shirts, and I know it's kinda lazy..but it's easy.  But I found all these cute ties, and!  and yes, they've seen the pink, and they approved. ; )  I can't *WAIT* to see them all dressed.  Little Carter in a BOW tie!
Hope you have a fun birthday coming up, some sweet pink to wear, or just a slobbery Love Bandit to smother in kisses!  And heck, if not..just paint your nails with some Sinful Color.  I's more fun than icky poop.  We try to look on the positive side.
