Yesterday

was a better day.My sweet Ellie finished up her last day of Kindergarten. Her class celebrated by wearing their pajamas and bringing a favorite toy. Ellie must have tried on over ten different pj's the night before until finally selecting her watermelon ones to wear (because those are the ones Addison wore for her pajama day). Wonder how long I have until these two don't want to look alike? She also put her doll Eva in her pajamas the night before so they could go to sleep and wake up ready to go! She had such a great year. Made wonderful friends, had wonderful teachers (pictured above), and grew in so many ways. I'm so proud of my baby - who clearly isn't a baby anymore.

Yesterday I tried to put my house back together after pulling everything apart in a moment of weakness. While I did that, Kole enjoyed lots of fun time with grandma.

And the girls amused themselves in ways they usually do.

Then I decided I needed a break from organizing so Kole and I caught up on our recorded So You Think You Can Dance episodes. Kole loves So You Think You Can Dance.

Then grandma gave him a bath. Kole also loves pink.


He especially loves his grandma.


And he loves his turtle crib.

and all of us sure love him.

What cute kids! Love the watermelon pj's. I started reading your blog after Kelly at Kelly's Korner posted requesting prayers when you were hospitalized. So glad you are doing better. I love the organization tips and thank you for getting me started using picasa. I've now successfully created a photo banner for my blog. Thanks! Have a good weekend!

I see how it is. Grandma Van goes to San Diego and does all of your dirty work instead of mine. No fair! Can't wait to see you guys next week. I can't believe it's already been almost a month. Where the hell has time gone???

Cute post Erin! I love Addie in the laundry basket! So cute. Kole is just as cute as can be. Oh and love your Mom's polka dot p.j.s. How cute and stylish is she?! (Those were pajamas, right?)

First of all, I would like ten pair of pj's to choose from ! That is awesome and love that they enjoy dressing alike so sweet. How nice to have your mom down for a visit. Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog -- likewise.

What great teacher's and what a fun last day of school!! I love all the cute pics of your ADORABLE kiddos! Kole has the sweetest little smile, I bet your Mom wants to steal him and take him home! Speaking of home... I saw your cute Dad tonight in Lins on Sunset Blvd. (recognized him from all your blog posts!!)

Love the watermelon PJs, and I love your Mom's PJs too! :o) I'm thinking I need to invest in a green shirt after seeing some of yours and that picture of Kole in the very manly pink towel is hysterical, that little face is just awesome!

Happy Weekend!
Love from Kansas...

Erin I love the picture of the girls looking over the crib at Kole! What a Kodak moment!!! I love your blog and I still think you should write children books. You are the cutest writer ever! Love you!

Shari said...

Oh man that pic of Kole just out of the bath is the BEST! How cute is he and how cute is your mother?!?!

I didn't realize that Ms. Kelly was one of Ellie's teachers! Rachel had her for 6th grade, I think. We loved her too.

Glad you're getting yourself pulled together and taking time to relax too.

So excited for Tuesday!

Erin-Kenny did such a beautiful job on Kole's blessing today. I loved it. And Kole really is just about the cutest baby out there! :)

BTW, I just read your last post...um are you on drugs? You didn't even look like you had one pound to lose today! ;)

Have a great trip home!

Ann said...

P.S. I am still so sad that you won't be sharing the chicken story. :(

Jessica Turner said...
