This is What Happens

This afternoon as the girls were screaming supposed to be napping, I realized that today is Tuesday and I haven't put any new pictures here on the blog since Friday. I know Scott only has a few more days until he's home for a visit, but really, he shouldn't be deprived of new pictures of the girls just because HE'S GOING TO BE SEEING THEM IN REAL LIFE AGAIN SOON for the first time in 5 months!!

Anyway, I realized that I still had these funny photos that I took on my sick day that I could show off. This is what happens when Mimi and I both take a sick day at the same time.
It falls to Ella to do all of my typical tasks.... like dressing the girls and fixing their hair. She did a pretty decent job with the clothes, slightly less stellar with the shoes, and outright didn't make an attempt at doing anyone's hair. But she's still only 3 for a few more weeks, so I'll give her credit for the control she did have that day!

We spent a good portion of the morning outside. Thank goodness it was still warm enough to be out there!! I spread out one of my big picnic quilts and brought out my pillow. I was lying as still as possible on the pavement while the girls played all around me.


When they needed something, i.e. when someone got stuck in a car or couldn't move their tricycle, they pulled together and helped each other out. I was so impressed... but too sick to cheer them on.

They didn't seem to mind, and once again I was grateful that they each have 3 such wonderful sisters!!

The girls are strong, self-sufficient young ladies, just like their Mom...
So sorry you've been sick, but that means you'll be 100% by the time Scott gets home-YAY!!!

SO happy that Scott is coming home! How long? Hope and pray that you all are a 100% while he is hom, and that you have wonderful time with him.

What a great little team those girls make. I can't believe that Ella is almost four years old! Where does the time go?

I hope you are finally feeling better. I love the pictures. Very cool that they pulled together to help each other so you could relax a little.

I can't even imagine how excited you must all be about Scott coming home...
