The Week in Review

Joe is coming home today. It's been a relatively good week. Here are a few highlights of our week.
Jack, who earned his yellow belt 3 weeks ago, actually received his belt in karate this week.

Spenser, when left alone with a tape dispenser and her baby brother, got creative. As you can see, he was not happy. Not to mention as I was trying to take the pictures (I had no time to try to focus), Spenser is continuing to rip the tape off his head. (It almost makes me want to laugh. A very pitiful laugh.)
A trip to the free railroad museum right here in my town. Our first time there (in more than 6 years of living here.)
Video calls between Daddy and children.
Buttons and fabric from Katie's birthday giveaway.
And a bird applique (inspired by this Alexander Henry print). This one will go in his diaper bag as a backup for his frequent diaper explosions.

One thing that I did not photograph for my "Week in Review" is stepping on a diaper in the dark, late at night, only to realize that sleeping Spenser had removed her diaper and pajama bottoms and was wearing a skirt.

Aww poor kid. I would've probably laughed too though. I think I have yet to step in a diaper *knock on wood* And I can't believe there's something free in your town and you have never been there! Was it good?

Karyn said...

It looks like it was a great week! (minus the tears) I love the bird applique!! Awesome!!

that's the problem with being the baby: the older ones torture you.

and why, why, why do children take diapers off when going to bed? why?

Sounds like a fun and eventful week. I had to laugh when i saw the tape. I like the bird... you are becoming quite the appliquing Queen!

Felicia said...

LOL I think the funniest photo must be the diaper you didn't photograph! :)

Cici said...

Your appliques are so darned cute! This one is no exception.

The joys of tape...
