Spring, where are you?

Evie is sleeping late with the time change. She wakes up around 8 or 8:30 and naps until nearly 5 which makes for bedtime closer to 8.  I hope she gets back to normal next week because we like early bedtimes at our house for the kids and the parents.

Evie has been talking about her Nana and Ipop since they left yesterday morning. I am sure she wonders where in the world they went but she usually thinks that anyone that is missing must be at work. She even talks about her great-grandmother being at her job. Great-grandmother does not have a job!

Evie and I had a lazy day yesterday at home. We stayed in our pajama's all day and those make for the best kind of days. Evie and I headed to Chick fil A this morning to meet some friends for breakfast. I love their breakfast! Our kiddos had fun playing while we tried to have coversation but it's pretty hit or miss these days. We even forgot to discuss The Bachelor.

Evie and I stopped by Harris Teeter because we were out of strawberries which is a major problem at our house. Evie loves her "strawbies" and eats them three meals a day. Carl called right when we got home to see if we could meet him for lunch. We were not too hungry but did not want to pass up the chance to see him in the middle of the day so we took off.

   Evie was thrilled to see her Daddy and sat with him eating chips and salsa for a long time. She gave him lots of hugs and kisses! Evie was not so thrilled when lunch was over and cried for a few minutes wanting her Daddy.

   We came home for some playtime. Evie got a new book in the mail from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library and played with her Mrs. Potato Head. Nap time was late as usual but I had a nap too. Carl reminded me that I napped every day while pregnant with Evie so that made me feel better.

   He came home early today which was nice and we spent some family time together. Evie is just a hoot to watch and had us laughing at her antics. She has decided that she likes her lion and wanted her doll stroller parked in her room along with her purple balloon from the grocery store. She's all tucked in for bed and I am not far behind her.


  1. i am not liking the later bedtime that has come with the time change either! somehow sleeping in a little later doesn't seem to make it that much better. i would much rathe libbi go to bed early and wake up a little earlier than all this late night business (and by late night, i mean around 8:15/30 - ha!)

  2. Glad ya'll had a good visit with your parents! Happy belated birthday, Beverly!

  3. Sounds like you guys had a great weekend! You asked about the color of SC's room... it's a Benjamin Moore paint named "Sweet Caroline"... we've had it for 5 years and I still love it...it will reappear in our new house, too! :)
