What a difference a husband makes! Len took the day off today. Did you read that? Len took the day off today. That in itself is worthy of a post! The result was that we had a great day, I'm not exhausted even though it is 4PM, and the kids had a blast :-) He even got the new cabinets painted.
While the other girl took a turn painting cabinets with Len, Maya and Sadie each had a turn making a sock doll baby with mismatched socks.
Our 3rd annual 4th of July cake. This year's is a half whole wheat, chocolate chip, parsnip cake with marshmallow fluff and butter frosting (ran out of ingredients!!) topped by my professional cake decorators with fresh berries. Maya would have preferred a flag pattern, but the abstract-random crew was on duty today!
The evening should be great too as we're headed to my parents' for an indoor cook out. Yup, rain again! And, drum roll, the girls are sleeping over there! That's what I call independence, and it's definately worth a fireworks display!
