Fun With Photoage App

There is this fun app called "Photoage" I got on my phone just for fun and to see how old I looked.
Really Photoage?!?! 40?!?!!?
Well this makes me feel a little better- try dividing that by 4!
And yet.... 
I laughed so hard when this one came up. It's funny because it's what everyone thinks. Not 14 of course, but everyone always thinks he's younger than he is. It's fine with me- love that baby faced boy!

Desperately Wanting To Give Up.

I really dislike potty training.

So far the accidents today consist of her bed, then our bed, then my pillow, then 3 successes- I thought we had turned a corner and it was all downhill from there!!! Then she peed on the couch, which thankfully is leather, but unfortunately the pillow on it wasn't. That's two trashed pillows today. What next Ellie??? At least pee on something I want to get rid of!!

How about the dining table?

At The Park

We played at the park for a few minutes before heading over to watch Dad's softball game. His team needs to play a little.... better.... yeah, they get murdered. So we like to distract ourselves with Goodwill and parks before we inevitably go watch the game. I also like to postpone it because Ellie fell on/off the bleachers TWICE! And screamed bloody murder both times. No injuries to show for it though, for which I am grateful! Last thing we need is a trip to the ER!

Listen for Ellie's "Cookie Monster Laugh" near the end :)
Dad found Brook trying to get in on a pickup game of basketball- it was pretty awesome

Went for a Sunday evening walk
Had a blast at Chuck E Cheese for Brook's half-birthday
(they send you free tokens!)
Ellie pooped in the potty and earned her own bag of chips
Made the girls' skirts for Uncle Harry's wedding

We had the missionaries over for dinner. Brook was in heaven!

Then and now

Well.... we did the one thing I thought for sure we would never do. We bought a king size bed.
It reminded me of this picture from six years ago:

Yoga Life Lessons

Falling out of balance is not failing. Rather, the fall provides a new opportunity to re-commit and achieve balance…
Losing balance is part of finding balance…

Hot Rocks

Found this on pinterest- it is so much fun!!! Bake the rocks for 15-20 min at 350, then color them with paperless crayons!!! They are hot, so be careful!!
