Spring is Upon Us!

This week has definitely had it's ups and downs! Some ups: Monday I took Annabel to the kiddie consignment shop and found a few really cute things for summer. Score! I found a two-piece tank top/skirt outfit from Children's place, some Old Navy tank tops and jean shorts. I also found the Little People's barnyard set that I've been looking for for awhile! I probably shouldn't have bought it (i.e. no money!) but hey- what's life without a few new toys every now and then? ;) And I was right- she LOVES it. Little People are great gift ideas for this little person! (hint hint)

And yesterday, we got to watch our friend Haylee (a friend's daughter) for a couple hours- they had so much fun! I don't get to see Annabel with other kids too often so this was fun for me, too. They played so well together, and it was so sweet. As you can see from the pictures, they held hands, pushed each other on the scooter, ate cookies and shared juice boxes (blech!).

(Haylee was convinced we were hiding a little pink horse in the shed!) 
(On another note- I think this is the year to repaint the shed!)

Everything's better with a friend by your side!

Haylee sure enjoyed Annabel's cut-able food! (Doesn't she have a birthday coming up, Paige?!)

After Paige came to get Haylee, we all trekked over to the college cafeteria to eat lunch (Paige and I have a wonderful system for getting free food there, haha- don't ask). It was interesting trying to feed our three little ones- all under the age of three, but fun, too. Afterwords we went outside and let them run around in the grass and flirt with college boys. It really was a fun time. 

 Here she is playing with her new barnyard! It makes cow/pig/sheep noises too!

Some other "ups" from the week included class being cancelled next week, walking to the library and checking out some new books, getting our garden completely tilled up and ready to plant. Oh- also, my friend Lindsay finally had her baby!! I haven't met little Eden yet, but I'm very excited. Lindsay was brave and had the new little one at home! Another fun thing- my bulbs out front are coming up! I think they are daffodils, crocuses and something else. It is wonderful to finally see some color out there!

Some yucky things that happened this week.... well Thursday on my way to work I almost got into a wreck. Some jerk in a yellow XTerra pulled out in front of me, and I would have t-boned him had I not swerved into a yard to my right. And he kept on going! Ugh. 
Then, yesterday I was carrying Annabel down the stairs (not a good idea, I know) and I fell, all the way from the top to the bottom. That was really rough. I really hurt my hip, plus it was very scary! I dropped Annabel about halfway down, but she didn't really hit anything and wasn't hurt, thank goodness! So that was the second time I called Derek crying in two days! :) I'm still a little sore, but I think I'll be okay.
And the worst thing- POISON IVY! I must have got it clearing out the yard last Sunday. It is all over my arms, hands, thighs, belly and neck. And it is continuing to spread. This is no fun at all.

But all in all, I really have nothing to complain about. This semester is almost over, It's almost summer, and my baby(ies) are healthy and safe. Life is good:) Here's one last picture from this morning when Annabel discovered she could get under her highchair:)

yay for the fun stuff...and yay for you not being really hurt in either of those two incidents! i am always scared going down our teeny tiny spiral stairs with javen for that very reason. i can totally sympathize with the poison ivy, that stuff is AWFUL. i wish i had some helpful tips on how to get rid of it but when i had it i just suffered thru it and scratched to no end. definitely NOT good advice!

Oh no! You told me about the poison ivy, but not about falling down the stairs (totally something I would do!). I hope you are feeling better. Woohoo for classes being cancelled!!
