Anna has had a very good week. She is back (for the most part) to our happy fun little girl! If she is not tired and not hungry she is really a lot of fun! I'm thinking however that I need to start feeding her more because I don't think she made it to 7:00am one time this week. Most mornings it was 6:30, this morning it was 6:20 and she cries until you give her a bottle and then she downs it, so I'm thinking she's just ready for more food. No new teeth this week, it's looking pretty funny with those three top teeth coming in even farther, she looks like she already lost a front tooth :). But you only see it when she's smiling really big and then she's just so cute with her smile that you don't think it looks too funny. :)
We had a very busy week but I must not have taken many pictures of the busy week because I don't have too many to share here. :)
We did finally put the twins' quilts up in their room (Miss Barb from our church in Michigan had made them each their own quilt and they hung on the wall in the nursery there, but we'd never put them up here). They were so excited to have them up. Jonathan said "now I can sleep on the wall!" And then he tried to lay on it on the wall, it was pretty funny. :)
Our school had a campaign dinner and how they do desserts is they get people and businesses to donate them and then the people have to bid on a dessert to get dessert at the dinner. So I made two of these cakes. My goal is to always have a cake taste as good as it looks (I find it very disappointing when something looks so delicious and then you take a bit and it's not as good as it looks). I think this lived up to my goal (I was off my challenge this week so I got to actually give this one a taste test :)). My cakes did pretty well in the silent auction so it was fun to get to help the school raise money in this way.
The boys have played outside quite a bit this week. They don't care if it's in the 30s, if the sun is shining, they want to play outside :)
Of course then they come inside pretty cold so they had to have some hot chocolate to warm up.
I was pretty excited to get to have a cup of hot apple cider from my Keurig as well (I got it for my birthday and have been on a challenge since then so I had never actually made a cup for myself). It was very yummy!
This girl can get some pretty crazy hair
The boys were very disappointed that they didn't get to eat any of that cake I had made for the campaign dinner, and I had some extra frosting left over, so I made them a mini cake and they were excited to help put the raspberries on top.
Eating some Honey Nut Cheerios for breakfast
I guess Jonathan didn't think I gave her enough :)
So they also got to eat Honey Nut Cheerios for breakfast. Between the two of them they did polish off all those Cheerios Jonathan had poured onto Anna's tray
The twins had dentist appointments this week which they did really well at, but they were bummed that the dentist office is on the ball and they didn't have to wait that long to go back, so we had to have some play time in the waiting area after their appointments :)
We made pizza one night and Micah wanted to make his to look like his friend Iris :)
Friday morning Jonathan and Micah got out my mops and were pushing them across the floor. I figured if they were pushing them anyways I might as well put the rags on them and actually have them mop the floor :)
Micah now has to be read to 20 minutes a day 5 days a week, so this is a sight you often see in our house these days, the boys listening and Anna insisting on sitting on Steve's lap, and then insisting on getting down :)
More play time outside
At Coffee Break on Tuesday I was talking with some other ladies from Michigan about how we miss Michigan pigs in a blanket. One of the ladies said she had a recipe for them and she gave it to me, so yesterday I made 51 pigs in a blanket! We had them for lunch today, they were so yummy!!
This is a typical Anna, stand next to something to get something she's really not suppose to have. :)
