It's on the market

Our house is officially on the market.  So if you know anyone that wants a fabulous town house let me know!!  There has been a lot of work that went into getting this town house on the market.  I have patched, painted, cleaned, decluttered, fixed things, had repair men here a few times, etc…  It looks good.  We just have to keep it looking really good until we can get into our new house.  Which is not terribly long.

In the meantime things like blogging and relaxing have fallen to the lowest of priorities.   Now to furniture shopping for the new house which is not my idea of fun but some items are a need….

So I have some catching up to do, details of Celia's birthday, etc.

But for now.

Where did they get the blond hair from?

I get asked that question a lot and I often quickly say that my husband is blond but sometimes I go into the fact that I did have blond hair.  Here is proof, along with a bit if the curls showing.  I am the one with the red outfit.  The oldest is my sister, middle is a friend.

Our Rainy Morning

A little tidbit about the oldest kiddo.  She has an unnatural obsession with umbrellas.  I got Audrey an elmo umbrella at a consignment sale for $1.  Celia knew that on the first rainy day Audrey could get the umbrella.  Celia basically bounced out of her bed, got dressed and started harassing me.  Can I show her?  Can she have it?  Mommy it's really raining.  We need it.  Can I get it now?  By the time it was time to leave she was pratically shaking with anticipation.  Audrey liked it but I not sure she shares Celia's enthusiasm for umbrellas!

Just pictures

Yes she is asleep and yes that is the top of the stairs.
Although this is at the beach, everyday after school they so some form of this.  Today it involved Audrey stripping off her pants because they got in the way.  They were big and kept sliding down.  Evidently not desirable for lying on your sister or wrestling.  I guess it is a warped way of saying they missed each other.

The pictures on my phone

A pretzel trip into town the Tues before school started.  Audrey double dipping like crazy and Celia getting annoyed.  Even though she does it too!  This is my ultimate sacrifice as since I was pregnant with Audrey my stomach no longer tolerates my favorite food in quantities larger then 2 bites.  Celia is quick to remind me if I break off to large of a piece!

At Pizzera Uno the kids can make their own pizza.  They give them a chefs hat and everything.  They do not put the adult order in until the pizzas are made so everything comes out together.  It was fun!

This is more like my recent photos, this one is excitement over finding matching paint so I don't have to repaint the bathroom.  It is not that yellow, it is the picture.

If you had seen the before... I sent this to Pete so he could be proud.  Getting our house ready for sale is making me luny.

I leave you with this.  She is sound asleep.  I ignored the whines and drama and refused to go up for the 89th time.  Since then things have been better.  Giving up a nap has been hard for this kiddo, put her to bed too late and she gets a second wind.  So we have started bedtime earlier and it has made a difference.  Getting her in bed by 7:30 is hard!
