I sewed up outfits for the girls Monday and Tuesday. I am finishing Amelia's shirt today. What do you think of Evelyn's ruffle pants? Pretty schweet, eh?! Monday we made a thankful tree for FHE, spur of the moment style. My favorites the kids wrote were: alfabet, shelter, jets, sharks, the number 6, and blue binkies. Evelyn started gagging herself this week. It all started when she pulled a paper leaf off the wall and tried to eat it. She gagged. The experience was so novel that she spent the next week gagging herself with objects, her fingers, binky, and anything she could shove down her throat far enough. There is not much more alarming than the sounds of gagging, especially coming from the back seat in a vehicle. I hope this new phase peters out quickly.
Wednesday we spent the morning packing our bags for an impromptu trip to Mt Rushmore. We talked and planned on going to SD all year. Justin and I decided this was our last chance. He booked a hotel Monday evening! The kids had no idea what we planned. Amelia had fun guessing where we were headed. Phillip was disappointed we did not make it to the moon in a jet with his pet dinosaur.
