Friday was spent with me running around like a chicken with my head cut off preparing for company. Bathrooms to clean, beds to make, cookies to bake, floors to vacuum, toys to tidy, and the list goes on. All morning long Corynn heard me say, " Not now Corynnn" "Go play with your brother Corynn". (When in my mind I was thinking: AHHH! JUST GET OUT OF MY HAIR so I can DO this!") It seemed everything I did, I had to do OVER again because Corynn was 'helping'. I vacuumed and then Corynn dragged a handmade basket over the carpet, trailing pieces of dust and bark all over. I swept and washed the kitchen floor and she fed Andrew some of her soup-each spoonful feeding the FLOOR-not her brother. So-I admit it. I am no saint. And my 'Bad Mama' personality rears her ugly head every now and again. Finally, I knew we BOTH needed a fun break so we headed outside for a walk. Refreshing for ALL.
The visit with my sister and her family was wonderful, as I knew it would be. Too short though. Shopping, UNO, hugs, good eats, and most importantly playing catch-up. How could you NOT have fun? Following are a *few* pictures from the weekend and a couple recipes. Enjoy!
