Monkey and Me

The three oldest are in Florida this week with their grandma Ski. She took them to Disney World! FUN! FUN! Which leaves just Evie and I home all day. The first day was horrendous! Not sure if it was the fact she had to get up at 3 a.m. so we could take the group to the airport in Omaha or that her one and only nap was from 9am-10am. BUT by 6pm she was a holy terror. Yelling, crying...basically a complete mess. John and I called it a night and were in bed at 8.

Yesterday was pretty good- she helped me run errands and do some projects. We painted a chair for Corynn's desk, modge-podged new paper on her dresser drawers and added new pulls, bought some mulch and finished spreading it in one of the flowers beds, went to the grocery store and worked on the cradle (a project that will end up being a cradle for her baby dolls).  John grilled up some steak last night and it was a pretty uneventful evening.

TODAY- we are going to the water park. Evie's pick! I asked her if what she wanted to do: swimming? Zoo? Park? She chose the water park...she loves that place! I do too because it only takes a few hours to wear her out and then she takes a 3 hour nap! SCORE!!!

It's fun having some one on one time with the kids. We took the twins to DC last summer, Corynn to AZ over spring break and now Evie gets a stay-cation at home. She doesn't get to travel, but she does get control of the tv and gets to watch all the cartoons she wants! She gets to play all day and gets her mommy and daddy to herself. Still a pretty good deal if you ask me!
