for reals

So, I had told you about Madeline’s fake glasses and that she even took them to school with her. Goober.

Well then a coupla weeks later her teacher recommended her getting an eye exam. At that point I vaguely remembered her pediatrician saying something about it during her last well check, like a year ago. It turns out she has ’44-year-old eyes’ and probably has needed glasses for a while, for reading.

Whoops! (#momfail)

We picked them up last week. I have a feeling they are going to be lost or broken within the month, just knowing how things roll at our house.

I bit my lip and completely let her pick them out. She chose blue. The picture looked ELECTRIC blue. (I was skeered.) But in the end, they look more purple.

And they’re pretty cute.

Sunday afternoon Andy took the big kids on a long walk to visit some friends. When the babies woke up from their naps, I sent them to play outside and grabbed my camera.

Ethan’s very favorite thing in the whole wide world is any form of a ball. His favorite word, too.

So now we get to the kitchen. Obviously one of my favorite places, although I don’t love to cook like my friend Nicky does. Her husband Steve designed the whole thing — chose colors and appliances and everything. And he has really really good taste. The only thing I can take credit for is the washer and dryer, which you can’t even see in these photos. ;)  And the painting, I also chose that. ha

This is coming in from the back door, you enter into a little entryway that is my laundry room (which is why I was adamant that the washer & dryer had to be stainless and match the kitchen):

Looking back:

The view looking in from the dining room:

This one you can see the laundry room, just off the kitchen, and then the back door.

I’m sure eventually I’ll put something lovely on top of the two shorter cabinets but I haven’t decided what to do there yet.

This is what you see coming into the house, I didn’t realize I didn’t have a shot of this view until I was editing photos that night and snapped one.

And then looking into the dining area from the kitchen:

Um yeah, we love it. And no, it doesn’t stay this clean.
