Lukas' New Room

Despite my best efforts to get the boys to share and get along, Lukas has decided that he wants his own space. We took all the toys out of the spare room downstairs and moved his stuff in. It was quite an ordeal. Separating toys and dividing clothes. (They almost wear the same size, so I would just buy for them to share. Big mistake.) We've had some flooding in the basement, so Pat and I took a couple of days to fix the carpet and repair the damage. FINALLY, Lukas' room is complete. We found a cute bedspread online and a bed on KSL. I was really surprised that he wanted to be all by himself in the basement. He does great and loves that he gets his own bathroom. So independent.

Scissor Happy

I wondered if this would ever happen. Max found out how fun it is to use scissors on hair. I found piles of hair all over the kids craft room one day and immediately ran to Zoey to see the damage. I didn't see any and judging on the length of the hair piles I was finding it had to be Max. He denied it, of course. I searched his head and found where he chopped. Then upon closer examination, there were several short spots on Zoey, too. I was so sad. The damage was minimal however, and I didn't see the point of yelling or making a big deal. I just told Max how sad I was and that he wasn't allowed to have scissors for a while. Well, after a bath one night I noticed a HUGE chunk of hair missing right in front of Max's head. Low and behold he had done it again, this time just to himself. This time obvious and very noticeable. I trimmed up the rest of his hair so it didn't look so terrible, but it is still sad. He has the best hair of anyone in the family. I guess we all did this as kids at some point. Mine was because I went to bed with gum and it ended up in my hair and so had to be cut out. Although I'm pretty sure I chopped off some of my own hair, too. I'll have to search my scrapbooks to find proof. **UPDATE** Since I posted this, Max has yet again taken the scissors to his own hair. This time right in the middle of his bangs. It left me no choice, but to get his hair cut. It's short, but longer on top for a that faux hawk look. It's adorable, and he looks so much like Lukas. He is banned from scissors for the rest of his life. :(

Cafe Rio and Sweet Tooth Fairy

There are few things better than good friends and good food. And when you put them together you get AWESOMENESS! Cafe Rio is a favorite amongst us girls. More often than not it can be accompanied by a delicious treat from Sweet Tooth Fairy (they have the best cupcakes, cake bits and cookies in the world). So here's to a million calories and priceless friendships.

Date Night

Pat and I are regulars at Olive Garden. It's our date night favorite. We really should expand our horizons, but why when it's so yummy and so close (and we had a gift card)! :)
