Girls Night!

Hannah and I are celebrating our first ever girls night with NO BOYS ALLOWED! Haiden is spending the night at grandma and grandpa's house, daddy is in TN. Hannah, of course, was the party planner, and this is how our day has went so far:
Swam in the pool together in the rain.
Scooped up mud and stuck worms in it.
Touched up paint around the house and deemed the laundry room "done" and don't have to look at it again--okay, this was not her idea, but it had to be done today!
Had Shredded Wheat and strawberries from the garden for dinner.
Played "Just Dance" on the Wii "girl songs only" for 45 minutes. Whew!
Had Jolly Rancher popsicles.
Did our nails with purple and red stripes.
Read a book about reptiles.
Read a book about dinosaurs.
Did our hair with butterfly clips and put on dinosaur snouts.

And here we are at the end of the evening (or at least I am hoping this little party is just about over) and lil' Miss is brushing her blue teeth, courtesy of the popsicles, and asking how much longer until we see Aunt Lori tomorrow. :)

Can you believe, Hannah is 4 years old now and this is the very first time it has been just me and her??

Moving month!

While it will take a lot to convince me that anything compares with the views Lake Michigan has provided us for the past 10 yeasr, I am looking forward to seeing this beautiful lake on a hopefully daily basis as well...

Just a quick glimpse into where we will be moving in the coming weeks.
Jeremy is heading out in our unknown-if-trustworthy RV he purchased just for this big move, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well for him as he moves about 90% of our household down there this weekend.
For those of you who live nearby, I will be trying to see as many people as I possibly can cram in before the 24th of this month. If I don't see you or call you before I go, don't take it personally--I'm working 40+ hour weeks, packing up a household, finishing up the school year, and trying to manage the kids and 2 energetic doggies. Get a Skype account and we can Skype it up, or I will call or be in contact via FB, email, or phone soon! :)
