Catching Up

I'm going to share a hodge podge of pictures and stories from over the past month.  I have not been good about blogging at all.  Be sure to scroll back a few post to catch up on a few others.
(Christmas here and here)
(Valentines Day here)
(Sesame Street Live here)
A few weeks ago it was a rainy Friday.  Elliott announced that he wanted a "hunkburger" (hamburger).  I told him we didn't have any.  He then proceeded to ask where we could find one.  He then said "can we get a hunkburger from Old McDonalds?"  We don't frequent McDonalds often, but it was hard to resist this particular request.  Also, it was Freddy T.'s day off and I think he wanted some peace and quiet, especially since it was raining and we had been couped up all morning inside.  So we headed out.  This was in the elevator on our way to the bus.
 The weather here last week was amazing.  We spent the majority of our days outside.  
 On this particular day Lillie and Elliott were almost inseparable.  Lillie sat down on the playground pouting about something and Elliott sat right beside her till she was ready to play again. This happened several times this day.
 Yesterday after church I needed to go to the grocery store.  I typically have the twins in a stroller at the store and Jack pushes a kid cart.  I did not take my stroller to church this particular day so I had them all loose in the store.  They each grabbed a kid cart and followed me around the store.  We took turns loading items into each cart.  They did amazingly well.  They all obeyed and followed me all through the store.  It was like leading a parade and we got lots of looks and comments.  Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do.
 Jack has been asking for a lock for his scooter for a while so he could ride it to school and keep it locked up.  Finally in late February we got around to getting one.  This was his first afternoon riding his scooter home.  His classmate Elena had her scooter as well.  They raced from school to the corner.
 Ever since we got rid of of the paci's nap time has been quite challenging around here.  Lillie and Elliott aren't really tired till around 1:30 or 2, but by then we are getting ready to get Jack from school, so they don't get much sleep and then are very grumpy.  We've just been having a little quiet time or nothing at all.  It's sometimes hard during the day but it has helped bedtime go more smoothly.  On this day they had been very quiet for rest time and I went in their room to get them up and this is what I found.  They were sitting in the floor right beside each other and Lillie immediately thew her arm around Elliott and smiled.  
 This picture is pretty blurry, but this was on the bus one day.  Jack just laid his head over on Lillie's lap and she rubbed his head and back.  Not bothered at all.

I love the picture where Lillie is pouting and Elliott waits patiently for her to resume playing. Looks like that girl could use some new red shoes!
Love, Mom
