Friday Favorites

How is it Friday again? I don't know where the time is going, but it's going fast, and it's making me tired! So here is a quick photo recap of our week. 

Monday was a lazy day.  We slept in, played around the house, ate popcorn and watched Toy Story (don't worry...we fast forward through the parts with Sid.  That kid is c.r.a.z.y.)

This bouncy little pony tail is my FAVORITE! I say it all the time, but every day I love her more and I don't know where all the love come from, but geez she makes my heart want to explode!

Monday afternoon I got out the "water table" and after about 10 minutes of watering the only plant still living in our yard she decided it was too hot and plopped herself into the tub. 

Then she chewed on the sponge.  Which is pretty gross.  But, if we are being honest, I used to do the same thing.  Weird?

Monday night I looked over at my nightstand and got all choked up.  I was overwhelmed with thankfulness for our girl.  She's my world.  

Tuesday was playday at the Tree House! I work at a 2 day a week preschool inside a church and they are kind enough to let the teachers bring their kids for a play group once a week.  The mommas might have a better time than the kiddies! Our school is such a fun, colorful, and Christ-centered place.  It's a FAVORITE of our family!

After play group a few of us headed to McDonalds for lunch.  Brynn was sitting next to Elizabeth and her straw splashed water on E. Elizabeth looked up at me and said, "It's raining?" HAhaha!!! FAVORITE! She had this look on her face like, "I know we are inside and it doesn't rain inside, but I just got wet." She makes me laugh so much.  I love Brynn's best friend!

Tuesday evening we got ready for a Mills family photo session.  We also squeezed B's 2 year photos in.  Brynn was pretty stoic for the whole shoot.  Until the photographer brought out a little rocking chair for her to sit in and we all sang, "If You're Happy And You Know It" and we FINALLY got some smiles.  Our photographer, Mrs. Monica is a FAVORITE because she always gets great shots even when Miss B isn't cooperative. 

We bribed B to smile by telling her we could have ice cream after.  And Grams made sure she ate every last drop. 

Wednesday we ran errands and little one decided that it was an UNFAVORITE that day.  Most days she is wonderful when we run errands, but not Wednesday. So we had to cut our to-do list and headed home early. After a time out for making me wrestle her into her car seat at Sprouts, she let off some steam by jumping on our bed.  Girl looooooves to jump on our bed.  I know I shouldn't let her, but she has so much fun and giggles and it's just my FAVORITE to see her so happy. 

Then we slowed down to watch Little Einsteins. 

Getting ready for bed Wednesday night we got THE. BEST. video of Brynn.  We have a children's book of prayers that we read at bedtime. {It was actually given to us at the book shower in Anton, but I cannot remember who gave it to us!} Each page has a quality like kindness, sharing, or peace and reads, "Dear God..." and has a short prayer about that quality.  Well that night little one decided she was big enough to read she started, "Dear God, blah blah blah blah." Turn page. "Dear God, blah blah ring around the rosie pocket full of posie..." Excuse me? HAHAH! So funny! 

Thursday we played all morning then by 12:10 Brynn told me, "night toys. mommy nap please." Yes, mam! {knock on wood,} but lately she has been asking me for her nap and sleeping for 3 hours.  That's a FAVORITE for this momma for sure! 

B spent the afternoon swimming & playing with her Grams.  I worked around the house then I picked up Dairy Queen {J was working late} at 4:30 and ate supper while watching Gilmore Girls. I'm pretty much the coolest person I know. ;)

While we are talking shows and how cool I am...I just finished watching thru Everybody Loves Raymond for the second time...and ya'll I. DIE. laughing at that show!! It's one of my FAVORITES of all time and I want to start from the beginning again, but feel like that make me extra lame. 

This time next week will be full on birthday party mode and I'm SOOOOO excited!! I can't wait to see everything put together and celebrate our girl!

I hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing, air conditioned weekend! We will be spending some time at the lake with the family.  I'm sure I'll have a few dozen pics to share when we get back!
