july 2012 ~ week 31 {heat, pinkies, family, dates}

anyone else ready for some cooler weather? 
me, too. 
heat indexes are no bueno when the rain stops.

our weeks are looking rather redundant, as of late.
theater (willy wonka), piano, school.  repeat.  
multiple times.
with a bunch of other life stuff mixed in between.

nator is gearing up to play ms. gloop in willy wonka.
can't wait to show you her pic in full costume (interpret that as... fat-suit. ;)

ipad helps gracie during sister's piano lesson.
shhhh... just don't tell her these apps are educational.

while eating kids-eat-free-chili's-chicken-burgers, pinkies out... when in doubt, you know. ;)

when my girls help in concessions at theater, they look so grown up, y'all.  *sigh*

and my brother was passing through, so it was nice to catch up with him a lil'.  pei wei seems to be our tradition.  no complaints here.


sometimes i just have to snap a pic of 'school' in session.  gracie working on math looks nothing like my 'school' experience growing up.  oh, what i would have given!

gracie is following in her daddy's footsteps.  they have a thing for toothpicks.  

the girls had extra oompa loompa practice, so hubs and i painted the town red. we bought drano, protein bars, and a south beach diet book.  it's the little things, right? 

our cute lil' chef.  when she's not veruca... nor an oompa loompa.   lil' chef spent saturday evening in mom and dad's bed.  a gracie sandwich was in order.  must have worked - she's feeling a lil' better today.

looks like willy wonka will be winding down in rehearsals, as performances begin... and we will be diving into our new school year before the end of the month!  woot!

have a great week!  pinkies, temps, toothpicks, and all!


  1. Tell the girls, "Break a leg!" from me! I hope the performances go well. We're all done with Grease, and auditions for Peter Pan are later this month. We actually have a full 2 week break--can you believe it?! :)

    We're starting our new year "officially" on the 27th, but we're starting to add in a few things now. When I hear, "I'm so bored," guess what I suggest?

    Have a great week my friend!

  2. Good luck with Willy Wonka!!!! Can't wait to see the pictures!

    Now you have given me a hankering for Pei Wei!!!!

  3. Another great week. Keilee is actually on a Theater break. The play they are doing now is for 9th grade and up. Thank goodness for me! With all this driving back and forth for the "Space Warriors" movie I don't think I would have found the energy. Love all your pictures as usual. Wish Keilee and I could 'pop in' for a Willie Wonka performance!

  4. It looks and sounds like your week was a blast... even if redundant. :) Meeting with family and painting the town red... even for draino... always a great time. :) :) Can't wait to see Ms. Gloop!

    Have a great week!! :)

  5. I'm glad to hear that your gracie is feeling better. Poor babe. It is never fun to feel icky and it is heart-breaking to see as a mama lion. Also, I can't wait to see costume pics. And painting the town red sounds fun. :)



I always enjoy reading what you have to say... It makes my day! ;)
