Little moments of our time

Lil' wanted a picnic. It was awfully windy outside, so we did it inside. As you can see it was a choice meal. Lil's choice that is. Peanut butter and honey sandwiches, apple sauce and fruit snack. Earlier that day Lil' had watched a Blues Clues video that taught how to make newspaper hats. I vividly remember making these for Tommy and his friend at age three. Lil' and cousin Lexie had a blast.

Here is our Milo. Here he is wearing his favorite clothing as of late. He has developed a habit of coming home from school and changing in to PJ's, commando to boot. I am grateful he'll still willing to wear his underwear and pants to school.

"I want to dress my self." Opposite of Milo ,Lil' loves clothes especially if it is of her choice. This is Lil' on Saturday, purple tank, my favorite Capital Reef tee, got to love the bright orange leggings'. In addition to the outfit she did her own hair. The entire box of hair clips and barrettes were placed in her hair. Several of her dolls had a similar do'.

In need of a late night snack. Stashed away in the cupboard I found some jiffy pop. It was fun to make popcorn over the stove. There was a lot of shaking going on here.

Shake , shake , shake your booty!

Crazy, huh. We didn't use the microwave. We are such pioneers in the art of popcorn making. It is fun to take jiffy pop camping too.

Yummy! Look what we made. Lil' can't wait to share. Warm and buttery. Are you craving it?

Lots of fun was had last week. I tried hard to share some quality time with the kids. These little moments may look brief, well except for the popcorn popping, but we had fun. I once read that it is the quality time you spend not the quantity. Working full time I often get stress that I am not spending enough time with my little ones. When they get bigger they don't spend their time with Mom, too busy with friends and playing soccer.

I love my kids.

Your kids are so cute! I want to hit the store for some Jiffy Pop, now. I am quite the original thinker, aren't I?
