project 365, week 11...i think.

an interesting week to say the least. this time of year in central texas we're typically averaging in the mid 80s. it got there about a week and a half ago--just long enough for everyone to put the winter stuff away and pull the shorts and tank tops out. then the unthinkable happened. we took a turn this week and headed back down to the 40s, and just for fun, threw in some rain. fortunately (for lack of a better word) for me, molly was sick, so we had a good excuse to stay in the house and wear our pjs for most of the week. :)
rain you may stay, but sun, please come back. this is ridiculous. and my skin agrees.

SUNDAY, Mar 8th
we got out sunday evening and played in the street. thats not as bad as it sounds. we live on a cul-de-sac. i loved this picture of molly riding the 4-wheeler in her laura ashley dress.

MONDAY, Mar 9th
monday is always grocery day unless an act of God prevents me from doing so. i'm very scheduled. here's the haul for this week.

TUESDAY, Mar 10th
mom and i took the kids to the san antonio zoo. we didnt think about spring break being an issue because spring break in round rock isnt until next week. not everyone follows our schedule though and when we got into s.a. the crowd was unbelievable. i'm so used to going places during the week and having them all to ourselves while everyone is in school. i tried to talk the kids into doing anything else, but they had their sights set. it was rough, but we had fun. this is the only picture i took though.

molly woke up at 3am throwing up (you may have already read this from my thursday post) and we were pretty much awake at that point. i was able to take a decent nap that afternoon while she caught up on her sleep as well.

THURSDAY, Mar 12th
an inside day. the cold front blew in wednesday, but molly being sick kept us indoors. thursday we stayed in by choice. i played pirates with colby for awhile. we didnt have a hook so colby put a drillbit from his tool set on my thumb. i guess that makes me captain drillbit. sexy, yes?

FRIDAY, Mar 13th
some friends of ours passed down their sons lego sets for colby. we got them about a month ago but i've been saving them for a 'rainy day'. friday was still cold and rainy, so out came the legos. i spent 5 hours in all building and was able to put together the pirate adventure set and the metro park and service station. my back hurts today from being hunched over the directions for so long! well worth it though. i doubt that will be the only time i put those together. :)

SATURDAY, Mar 14th
we went to a birthday party and i was feeling extra creative, so i made the 'to, from' card with my cuttlebug and other scrapbooking supplies. it was cute, but no one will appreciate it like i do. it was ripped up and thrown away about 2 hours later by 3 year old twins. so sad.

Dena said...

Great pictures. We won't see the 80's for over a month yet, so I love the pictures in shorts and the one in a dress. Cute lego sets. I remember when my kids played with those.

Lisa said...

You are such a fun mom! I'm pretty sure I'd never be able to pick legos together like that.

A little jealous of your weather, for sure!

Kim said...

Your stamina knows no bounds! To be ready to play pirate after a day with a sick! The picture of the kids at the zoo is too cute. What's his expression all about?! :-)

P.S. Weird, but my word verification is "comera" -- almost CAMERA. LOL

Michelle said...

Besides Molly being sick, it sounds like you had a great week. I love the card you created. Very cute.

Becky said...

You are so rockin' the mom thang in that pirate pose, I love it! I need to get to a zoo its been so long... my two year old has never even been.

I grew up in a culdesac...good times.

Ugh... legos :-p

Elizabeth said...

You are so awesome to do put that pirate lego thing together. I make my husband help, or my son is on his own. I wouldn't understand the directions anyway!

You live where we are thinking of living! My husband wants to get back to Texas but I'm not sure if I'll like it. San Antonio sounds fun, but 80 degrees in March? I don't know!
