Project 365 - Week 16


We started the day singing songs on the patio.  DK played Gracie's guitar and, of course, the concert included Lovebug by the Jonas Brothers.   {This was after my lil' workout dilemma.  Ha!}


On our grocery run, the girls and I bought flowers from DK. 
He's sweet like that.  ;)

We also picked up some catnip spray for Bella {Nator's request}.  Nator donated a mouse, the girls named 'Prince Naveen'.  Prince and Bella became instant friends... and the spotlight of entertainment around our house.  I know... You're thinking I should really get out more, right? :)


I spent the morning sewing no-sew-taping badges on the girls' uniforms.  {Someone should tell Martha Stewart about that lil' secret.}  Gracie made DK and me badges.  Sew sweet. ;)

Let's see... Do I post the pic of the sunrise when we woke early to bring DK to the airport?  Do I show you the pic of Jasmine and how pitifully sweet she looked with her head resting on the car's armrest, while waiting on me to get in the car?  Do I show you the picture Nator took of me at Panera, after my workout {not. pretty. but happy there were no bullies in kid care at the gym.  yay!}?  Nah... I'll simply post this pic of a sweet, spontaneous moment in our day.

We passed someone's car who had their music cranked up loud.  Before Gracie could get the request off of her lips, I rolled the windows down and cranked up our music too!  I managed to snap this {cell} pic in the moment.  We were listening to...

Bring On The Love by Coldwater Jane

Nator leaned toward the window and screamed, "We're bringin' the love!!"
I love my lil' girls.  Sigh.

I wrapped up our errands with some mommy/daughter time with Nator while Gracie enjoyed dance class.


The girls were so excited to work on these poster-sized lapbooks.  Nator wanted to research state flowers, while Gracie worked on a requirement for scouts with a horse-themed poster. 

The girls and I spent some time doing a fun photo-shoot, then Gracie hit a brick wall when we got home.  Body aches and fever.  Crazy.  Poor baby girl.  :(   Days like this make you even more appreciative of life and it's many blessings.  I loaded up my sick girl and nurse Nator {yeah, she likes to help take care of everyone too} and we headed to the airport to pick up hubs.  Yay!

This beautiful girl was part of our day.  Another great family.  While we had a lil' photo-shoot adventure, our girls rested and watched a movie in the car.  Gracie is still not feeling well, so I had to cancel one of my photo shoots.  She has had less fever today, but I just want my sweet baby girl well.  Now, please.  I'm not demanding either. ;)

I have a feeling I will be spending most of my 'next' week taking care of my girls and editing pix from Friday and Saturday.  ;)
