May 2012 Activities and photos

Since it is six months later that I am posting this finally, let's go with quick summary style. Here are the best pictures from the month of May and short captions to try and explain what happened that month.
Baby wearing training pants. Mostly because I think I ran out of diapers that day.

Princess and Baby were spontaneously wrestling. It was funny to watch.

Princess grew these beans and was very excited to eat them.

He's just super cute.

A monster patch I did on Baby's pants.

Mother's day breakfast with my four helpers.

Trainboy lost a front tooth.

Pretty Princess

A history food project. One of our favorite things to do.

Baby gets a toddler bed. He was thrilled until he realized what it was intended for. Did not sleep in it for months. (Now demands to sleep in it though.)

An old hotel was imploded in town. We got up really early to go watch. It came down loud and fast!

My sister was visiting at the time. Here we are waiting for the blast.

Yay for early morning explosions!

Princess began her muffin making career (with Jiffy mixes) in May

Trainboy expresses his love for doing dishes. See the joy in his face?

Dinoguy attempts to defy gravity with a chair while reading.

Showing off some history projects.

Trainboy is ready for a battle.

Scrumptious cheeks for kissing.

New baby (for a dear friend)

The last week in April was spent at a friends' home helping her while she had a baby. The kids loved visiting friends. I also enjoyed seeing my dear friend and also enjoyed that I got to see another new child come into the world which is always a sacred experience.

Kids with water balloons

Yep I filled up approximately 100. It's a labor of love.

Water balloons plus trampolines are super fun.
It was a memorable birth because of events that were unexpected. However that is my friends' story, not mine. What I got was a chance to snuggle and care for her newborn baby more than I was expecting! 
Introducing her kids to their new baby sister. My sweet kids, including Baby and Princess are quite interested too and had to be reminded not to crowd out the siblings.

Love this cute pic. Trainboy is right there loving on the new baby too.

Her three kids first picture together!

Me with the new baby wrapped on in her mei tei.

Precious new baby!
