Chore day, and of course anything else that distracts

It is extremely rare that Ethan is the one that sleeps in. He is our early riser and is usually up before me and dragging me out of bed to his room to play cars. 
This actually consists of him playing cars and me laying with a half lid open in his toddler bed. 
So to actually see him sleeping in the morning, I just had to capture it.

Yesterday was one of those days. One where I had planned to get it all  done and more. 
Ha, ha!
Needless to say I got caught up with jobs around the house. And of course side tracked by anything that seemed funner. (I don't think that is a word) I guess I should say more fun.
Anyway, it was a really good thing to finally get some city work done!
The kids made pasta art while I got a custom order underway between loads of wash.
The whole day was consumed with house stuff with many interruptions for art.
One thing I can tell you I learned. 

Finger vacuuming bites!

I forgot the vacuum and the cottage so kernel by kernel and crumb by crumb we made progress on the shag.
Chores almost done and it was time to get ready for bed.
chhh, ch, ch, ch, ch, chhh, ch, ch, ch, chhh...

Ta da, done!
And she rocked to sleep in my arms. When I carried her to bed she stirred slightly and in her sleep exclaimed, "One more push mommy, one more push please."
Sweet dreams.

Ethan is such a handsome guy - must be those McLean genes and the outfit fits Kaitlyn good.
Hard to believe that last week at this time we were on our way to see you all.
Have a great weekend with Grandma and Poppa.
Grandma Grumpy
P.S. Give E a belated Birthday kiss for us for his actual day.
I forgot to send him a card on the computer - will do tonight as a belated one.

Oh, how I wish I could hear my daughter say that! She is 15-and it is lovely and sad. Your kids are so gorgeous-and I know I have said it, but I LOVE the hair. And am glad Kaitlyn's sweet face is all better!

I love her cute little dress/gown in the toothbrushing photos! That's a fabulous print!
