Some weeks I get cabin fever.  The kind of weeks when you intentionally forget to get something at Target just so you have a reason to go out again.  “What?  I forgot to get thumb tacks!?  Well kids lets load up and go to town.  Who wants popcorn at Target!?”

Lately that hasn’t been the case.  We’ve spent a lot of time at home and passing the time very pleasantly.  Lounging around reading books, dancing in our P.J’s to cheesy 80′s music (no pictures of that, sorry!), playing in the water… good times.

The boys will argue about who gets to snuggle with Eliza in the mornings.

It’s sweet… in an annoying kind of way.

She likes sitting in baskets.  Which is nice because I happen to like taking pictures of her in sitting in baskets.

Reading Calvin and Hobbes on the couch.  Boy that brings back good memories

Lots of legos being built at our house.  For three days I had them all over the living room.  I admit I’m a little up-tight when it comes to clutter, but lego clutter… I can live with that.

We celebrated with our friends this week~

.:The birth of their son:.

A strong, healthy boy with two sisters waiting to shower him with love!

.:The garden:. 

I’m sorry if I seem a bit obsessed with the garden, but what can I say… I’m kind of obsessed with the garden. 

We’ve also been making a lot of homemade ice cream!  It is important to always wear appropriate head attire while making ice cream.

I don’t mean to sound like a preachy know-it-all, but if you aren’t using parchment paper when you bake cookies; you really should.  It’s great stuff.  When you pull the sheets out of the oven you just slid the paper and cookies off, which allows the cookies to cool off and rest without being crushed or mangled by a spatula.  And the best part about parchment paper… NO WASHING DIRTY COOKIE PANS! 

We made homemade ice cream sandwiches.  It’s a thing of beauty.
