Well its official the girls are still alive, and so is Joe!!! I went dress shopping today with the girls for my best friends wedding (Soon to be Mrs. Ohlson) Joe was left in charge for daddy day. That is usually not a big deal around here he is very hands on actually, but with the farm and renovations its been a few months since he has had both girls all day. So he had a girls day of playing Jenga (Averys favorite), making a mess, cooking dinner corn beef and cabbage, and playing with grandma Jolene who came to relieve Joe for milking time. Like I stated before a great dinner to most but I don't even eat corn beef so I came home and had golden grahams. Just as satisfying :) I was pleasantly surprised to come home to a somewhat clean house, come to find out later grandma Jolene picked up. Avery is at a great age to fill me in on all the left out details. Joe calls her a tattle but I think it hilarious. I asked what did you do today? She tells me "auntie marie and uncle pooch came over to get a few pet lambs for their house". "I also drove to the barn with Hadley" in her power wheel that is. Which I now find out from and inside source that when the battery dies, Avery gets out and leaves Hadley at the scene with the power wheel. What I call "sisterly love". Hadley is really learning how to handle Avery. Not sure if its a good thing but when she gets annoyed with her she just pushes her with both hands and feet to get her away. Quite funny to watch, I guess that is how you get rid of a talkative pesty toddler. So all in all a good day, bridesmaid dress bought, house still standing, kids still alive, and tomorrow is Valentines day. Knowing my loving romantic husband I will have a house full of flowers and the works. Well..........not so much but a girl can hope right? Maybe someday he will find that romanticism.
