Word of the Week: Colorful!

This week has been all kinds of busy, some fun, some productive, some in the opposite directions of those two. But throughout the busy, and much more noticeably, this week has been very...

COLORFUL!

From play dough, to story book pictures, and playground to pjs, we've had a little extra color everywhere.


Kit has had different color bathwater every day, and not from getting gross and grimy. She had pink on Monday, green on Tuesday, and purple on Wednesday and Friday! I'm writing a whole post on these very cool bath tablets, but here's a little sneak peak!


Our shopping trip on Tuesday resulted in several new t-shirts for Zak,  plus a new light jacket since he has outgrown everything from last year, which honestly, barely fit him then. But this one should last him a good number of years now.

Kit also got a new jacket, not because it's cool enough to wear yet, but because the stores are selling them now, and this one was bright pink and super soft and her Daddy and I probably love it even more than she does! And two new sparkly princess skirts!

Grace was hoping to find a bathrobe, but we'll have to look elsewhere, they had none. But she came away with a super sparkly clear nail polish, so she was quite satisfied! She doesn't actually wear nail polish very often, she uses it mainly to accessorize her Littlest Pet Shop animals.

School has been colorful this week too! With water beads, marker drawings of an Olmec head statue, and painting portraits for art.

And the big kids got to go with Daddy to the fair Wednesday evening, and the weather was perfect! The sky was gorgeous, and the bright rides against the crisp blue were nostalgia inducing. And who doesn't love it after the sun sets and all the lights shine bright and sparkling!




Plus a huge bonus! Much to my great delight, the weather has been much more comfortable, and I was even able to wear my fuzzy, spotted slippers around the house a few days this week. I crazy love slippers, guess it kinda goes with my love of all things wintry.
