Daffodils for everyone!

Hello to the five people who read my blog (my mom, my sister, Big Red, my Other Mother, and Christine)!

We had a fabulously warm weekend (the air conditioner is on!).

Na-ma and Gampa Elsea were here this weekend so we were very busy (they helped us get tons of stuff done around the house because 1. They keep us on the ball and 2. They are hard workers.

Friday afternoon C took a nap while we went to The Well so Monkey could play and we could drink organic drinks.  We also stopped by Lowe's for stop #1 of the weekend to grab some things necessary for making the tub work (for the past two years we've been using the shower to fill the tub and spinning the stopper to get it opened and closed).  We came home and had some pizza and Grandpa fixed the tub. It's like this is an entirely new house. I'm not sure how we ever lived in this house before. After Monkey was in bed we played some euchre.

Saturday morning Monkey woke up to a new princess castle!!

Also on Saturday was the 5k I signed up for in haste several weeks ago. Then I didn't train for it. So I didn't run it. Instead we went to Starbucks and Lowe's (trip #2) for electrical stuff and plants.  I'm pleased to say our front yard is now completely landscaped (except for the grass problem). We also dug up several daffodils that had no longer bloomed. I now have at least 100 daffodil bulbs laying out to dry in the garage.

Monkey woke up from her morning nap with a temperature which put a monkey wrench in our plans. She spent a lot of time watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Curious George.

There were three or four more Lowe's runs in the afternoon (mulch and electrical stuff).

We stayed in the evening and had paleo shepherds pie, because that's how we roll...not.  But we didn't do anything after that because we were so tired.  So off to bed we went.

Monkey still had a temperature on Sunday morning so she and I stayed home. Do you like her tutu?

While everyone was at church waving their palms Monkey was napping and I was catching up on Hart of Dixie. 

We got some more work done in the afternoon (trimming bushes and digging up more daffodils), another Lowe's run,  and ordered in dinner since Monkey was still under the weather. 

Monkey tried some new hair styles this weekend. I think we found a winner. 

And now we're back to the week and it's going to be cold so we're looking forward to Easter. 

Now on with your Monday.
