Here are some pictures of my kidlets in all their randomness.
This was on movie and popcorn night. Strike that. It was really movie and popcorn afternoon because both kids were super-crabby and I doubted they would make it long enough past bedtime to watch a movie. This ultimate in treats happened because Trevor was out of town for the night, and we were celebrating being out from under his tyranny. KIDDING. It's just a fun thing to do when the routine gets all shook up. I love that they chose to sit together to watch the movie and share popcorn. Note who holds the food, though. He's not giving that up for anyone.
Lottie helped me bake today - obvi. My dad and his buddies are in town golfing, and it has become a tradition that I send over a pineapple upside down cake every year when they visit. This time, there are more golfers, so I made two cakes. While I was cracking the eggs into the batter, Dallas, who had wandered in for a moment before returning to whatever solitary game he was enjoying, said, "I can't have eggs." He looked sad for a moment before lighting up with a smile and saying, "But Lottie can have eggs! She can eat that cake!" After I picked up the teeny pieces of my heart that had fallen to the floor, I decided that my boy needed a baked good, too. So, an egg- and dairy-free banana bread was soon in the oven. Lottie had been a great helper and begging to lick the beaters, so I let her go at it. Apparently the beater wasn't enough, so she stuck her whole head into the bowl. That's my girl, fire hat and all.
This was taken last week when it was dreadfully, horribly, insanely, disgustingly HOT. Dallas wrapped a beach towel around himself and said, "Look, Mommy. I'm Jesus." 'Nuff said.
