Quad Monday and Thrifting Tuesday!

This week we did something a little different for Quad Monday.
I prepared breakfast for them and their mommy brought them over in their pajamas!

Here they came!

I served chocolate gravy - courtesy of Estelle's!
Harrison loves hash browns so we had that and crispy smoked bacon plus biscuits!

They loved it all!!

Here they are giving Mommy goodbye hugs.

Then we we told them about the new sand......

and they were so excited!!!


Brand new sand!
We used to have a hot tub here and the hole is really deep so there is a LOT of sand in that box!!

The kids were a lot of help in cleaning up the sand toys.

You notice it's mostly the girls doing the work!
Can you see Harrison back there playing in the sandbox??

We taught them about gardening - at least a little.
They know not to pick the flowers or we won't get any tomatoes!
All these little arms and legs came in handy in spreading the cedar mulch around.

It's not the beach but toes in the sand still feels good!

Silly kids!

We ate a really good lunch of three cheese tortellini in Alfredo sauce, Italian salad and garlic toast.
Then we took equally good naps! Solid sleeping for all of us!
They usually wake up one by one and yesterday was no exception. Trystan was first so we spent a little cuddle time before Logan woke up after which we tip toed out of the den. It wasn't long before Kailey wandered in and then we had to go wake Harrison.

I promised them a bike ride before dinner and their dada was picking them up at 7:00.
They were the cutest things pumping their little legs. Sometimes one would get stuck and say, "I need a little help here!!" We went around the block twice and by that time we were ALL worn out!

We were just about to run out of time but we needed to get to Rule #4 of the Rules of the House.

The quads are pretty good at doing this already.
In explaining what it means, I said, "We take care of each other." 
And they do.

A hurry up tea party that doubled as supper!!
Win! WIN!!! We got it all in!!!

Then it was wine time in the gazebo!!
And this ended our Monday!

Tuesday morning we had an appointment with Louis Dean's cardiologist....
he got an EXCELLENT report!!!

We celebrated with a trip to Lovely Nails!!
He declined choosing a color!

He doesn't look nearly as happy as Ruth Ann!!
PLUS - he got a manicure AND a pedicure!!!
He cheered up later but I am proud of him for taking care of himself!

I took him home and then Ruth Ann and I do what we do nearly every Tuesday!
Hit up the Goodwills!!!
Here's my haul!

Some beautiful dishes!! These are Laurie Gates except for the one in the lower right hand corner.
I got two of those just because.
These will look great this summer on the dining room table!

I hit the jackpot with black and white!
One was brand new with a $39.50 price tag still hanging on it!!

The napkins were brand new.....
The Chocolat is really sturdy and I have a new outside wall in mind......
the vinyl love saying will go on the hall closet....
that pretty tablecloth will be used right after Easter.....
The plate rack will be re purposed - outside....

I could NOT resist this little bit of debris!!


I made it home in time to unload all my goodies and rest a minute in the gazebo with Louis Dean and then it was time for art!

Ruth Ann actually got ahead of me at one point!!
That's not supposed to happen!!

Session #2 on this canvas.

We still have a few sessions to go!!!

It's been a really good Tuesday!!!


I got my DNA results back today!!
Indigenous Amazonian.......
Who KNEW???

Tonight as I write, we are awaiting some serious T-storms with possible hail and winds.
I think I will go on to bed and just let them wake us up!!
