All about kiddos and down time....

This weekend was pretty much all about the kids and relaxing....We decided to put off the painting of our bedroom and focus on what the kids wanted to do this weekend.....So Saturday morning is was off to a park that is close by......on our way we picked up some Breakfast Burritos at some dive Mexican Joint with a drive through.....I must say they were super good.....and the Twins LOVED theirs.....After the park it was off to get some ingredients to make sugar cookies....and we were on the hunt for a dinosaur cookie cutter but to no avail.....the good news is the girls did settle for a butterfly one.....

After nap we made some butterfly and star cookies.....So freaking good....I have already added it at the Breezy Cook...Kiara and Mikiah were "Happy Helpers".....We all had a good time making them....they sure do love being in the kitchen.......We let the girls pick what they wanted for dinner....and their choice, YES you guessed it.....Blue Box Mac and Cheese with chopped up ham in it.....I will say there was none left.....All 3 of the girls chowed down...while Shawn and I had leftovers......The girls finished the night playing outside and watering the tomatoes.....they love to water.....and Kiara's new favorite is picking up dog poop (we have doggie rake and scoop)......She is actually really good at it.....Hmmmm, do I hear a new chore for her???? How much is should it be worth?? Hmmm...Shawn and I finished the night with a movie....Gone Baby Gone.....We both thought the movie was good....it definitely plays with your emotions about different outcomes to certain situations.....Casey Affleck really stepped up....

Today, well today was about relaxing, menu planning and a little bit of shopping, followed by some playing and dinner making........The best part was that I was able to go grocery shopping ALONE....No Kids, No Husband.....I must say it was pretty nice.....I usually bring Lila (cause she is such a Mommy's girl and was still nursing) but not today, I left during nap time.....and she was happy to be with Daddy and Uncle Joel when I got home....

Hmmmm what else did we do.......Lets see, Shawn and Joel played a new baseball game all day on the XBOX 360, they haven't had/played a baseball tourney in like 5 years....I do love cheap entertainment.....it also allowed me to catch up on posting some recipes while the girls watched a movie.....

Lila had a little bit of a rough day today......she got really constipated off and on today (all that whole milk, cheese and yogurt that she loves, "Come on Mom up the Fiber").....it was probably the worst constipation I have seen out of any of my kids....a whole lot of grunting with some minor crying and light screaming....Poor little girl......I actually started thinking "Did she eat something that I didn't see?, Could there be blockage?"......Minor Freak out on my part......but she did finally poop.....it took her a little bit to get it out and totally looked like it hurt.....and man did it wear her out...although she was totally chipper after the movement.....She still took no time to fall asleep tonight, tuckered little princess.....I did give her some pears, grams and a little bit of juice so hopefully tomorrow will be better.......MORE FIBER! This might be and excuse to make some more bran muffins......Hmmm....

Here are some pics from the weekend....
