Mish Mash

Yes, another random post. We haven't had anything major going on, just random stuff!
I completely forgot about these pictures of Audrey and Abby at the playground.

The gals going down the slide.

Abby loved pushing Audrey on the swings.
Yep, wearing a tutu again.
Stu and I are stuck in a food rut. So we joined Emealz (I can't link for some reason).
We have only made 2 recipes so far, but the grocery list that prints is very helpful.
I loved the Mexican Black Bean Chili tonight, but poor Abs got an upset stomach from it. I had to give her Tums (after googling that it was ok) and lots of milk. She has her momma's weak stomach!
I will keep you updated as we try new meals.
I woke up Saturday morning determined to do something productive.
I am SO ready to do yard work again.....but since I can't, we will work on the inside.
I am not a fan of "gaudy gold" hardware in the house. Most people don't notice it, but for some reason I do.
So I got the family together for a trip to Lowe's.
(Different rooms, but you get the idea).

We replaced all the door knobs and hinges on all the interior doors.

I am in love! I think they look so much better and smile every time I see them.

Have you seen Courageous?
It is a Christian movie about fathers that make a pact to be better Godly fathers.
We watched it Sat night. I cried so hard and so loud that:
1. Stu was concerned about me, repeatedly asking if I was going to be ok.
2. My friends the NEXT day asked if I was hung over (my eyes were almost swollen shut and my head pounded).
It was really good, but hit me so hard about being a good parent. And not just being "good enough".
I recommend it, but it touched something in me that inspired me to teach Abs more about God and Jesus.
Speaking of church...I was getting Abby ready Sun morning. I just bought her some new tights from Target. They were way too big, so I asked her to put on the leggings that I bought her.
She came back with the leggings on, but socks as well.
I debated it. But in the end I decided that was too embarrassing. For both of us.
She felt differently and screamed to wear the socks because "my feet are cold".
In the end, she wore the too-big tights, but her tantrum was hilarious. Ali even sniffed her out.
