Sunday, June 22: We were pretty wiped out from the trip, so this day was a bit of a blur. I finally ordered our 2006-2008 family book, and I am so excited for it to get here, I actually paid for express shipping; shocking!
Monday, June 23: I took the kids shopping to get ready for Jamie’s birthday party, making decorations with McKay that night while watching the new season of Orange is the New Black. McKay is the master of tissue paper puffs. News about Kate Kelly broke, and I haven’t said much about it to anyone besides McKay and even that has been sparse, partly because I am nervous about the number of people who are being disciplined right now, but mostly because I am so sad and disappointed. That is all.
Tuesday, June 24: Jamie’s 4th birthday! McKay woke up early to go get donuts for breakfast, yum! We invited a bunch of friends over for the party, and everyone on the invite list came! It was chaos! We had to do games in shifts because we definitely did not have enough chairs. Jamie had requested a princess party, but no one in particular, so we centered it around my favorite go-getter princess movies: Tangled, Brave, and Frozen. We did an art project like Rapunzel, played with “snow” like Anna and Elsa, and then shot arrows at a target like Merida. There were rice krispie treats, and fruit and dip. Everyone had a really fun time! Happy birthday, baby girl, we love you!

Saturday, June 28: Cindy, Marie and I threw a Rapunzel themed baby shower for Michelle and Patrick. I reused most of the decorations from Jamie’s party, and we had a lovely time.
Tyler does or says in his sleep often. One night this week, he was up several times. The first time, he ran out of his room, terrified, and buried his face in my pillow. “Mom! Can you close it!?” I went in his room to find his Calvin and Hobbes book propped open on his chair to this page:
And I couldn’t really blame him J
Then around 3 in the morning he came back into our room. “Mom, I can’t sleep. There are too many spiders on my pillow. I think there are three or a hundred.” I don’t remember opening my eyes. I just reached for my own pillow and handed it to him, and he walked out with it and I didn’t hear anything else for the rest of the night. And I was so tired that I just slept the rest of the night with a decorative pillow.
Jamie loves the Lego Movie good cop when his face is redrawn. She calls him the Scribble Scrabble Good Cop, and she laughs herself silly whenever she sees him.
