I can't believe it took me nearly a week to post about our Chicago trip. It was pretty jam-packed.
We've had some other things going on since we've been home.
Sassy and Little A have resumed Mom's Day Out for the school year. They are both attending two days a week to give me a chance to get some more work in. Both girls are enjoying class and making new friends.
Sassy got a new pink princess dress from a friend's garage sale for $5. She pretty much hasn't taken it off since. She is a dress-up maniac!
Sassy has started to call Tyler and I rock-a-noodles. As in, Mom- you are such a silly rock-a-noodle.
Sassy had a friend sleep over for the first time Friday night. And, it wasn't your run-of-the-mill sleepover. No. It was a camp out!
Tom, LMB, and Lulu came over for roasting hot dogs and S'mores, and then LMB stayed the night with Sassy and Ty in the tent. They had a blast.
The roasting of the marshmallows:
Practicing for their pajama modeling days:
The girls were very well behaved and Sassy can't wait to do it again. Lynzee, you're on deck...
Saturday, we participated in the Light the Night walk for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society:
Several members of our mommy group decided to fund raise and walk in honor of one of our members, L, who received treatment for Leukemia this summer. I am SO proud to say that out team raised almost $1400 for LLS research & family support. Yeah!
The LLS hosted a fabulous event... free pizza, ice cream, clowns, balloon animals, moonwalks, the list goes on...
We all wore blue, L's favorite color. Little A had a blast speed-crawling across the lawn of Exploration Place:
Here's a group shot of all the kiddos we could round up from out of the moonwalk at the moment:
Our team's honoree, owning with his rockin' new status for all to see:
Sassy thought her lit up balloon was pretty cool:
Here's the kids, taking a breather during the 2-mile walk:
I am so glad we participated!
As you can see, we've officially jumped right back busy Kansas life! It's been wonderful...
