Memorial Day

We spent this Memorial Day with Mimi Kim and Paw Paw George

We all had a wonderful time.

Mimi Kim helped Ella improve her skills on a big girl bike

A big smile for all this fun!

Ella made a friend

We all had brownies and ice cream to celebrate Cullen's birthday

  Ella eventually was zooming along

Showing off her tower

Shepherd had a great day being entertained by it all!


I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!

We live in The Land of the Free because of the sacrifices made by the very Brave men and women who serve our country in the armed forces. May the ones we have lost never be forgotten.

all in a days cleaning

It usually starts with these

and I fill the cute character cups

before long I have this

Sometimes they are on their own playing for a little to long and I find this

Or the "potato path" (my personal favorite)

They are so proud of themselves, but I must explain this is our food and not the best toy

All the cleaning is completely worth it and I love these girls!

clear the decks

Does anyone else have this problem? Junk and mail taking over your countertops.

I have decided it is time to clear the decks

and actually be able to see the counter.

A little serendipitious creation of my very own - a drink station.

I don't think Kitty was very impressed.

Oh well, on to the rest of the house...

Sometimes starting over is not such a bad thing

This is the House of Q blog 2.0!  Sometimes starting over is not such a bad thing. I could not figure out how to access my other blog anymore, so this is what I came up with to replace it. I kind of like this one better anyway.
Please follow my blog by e-mail or the other way. I will be having some giveaways in the future for the ones connected. Free stuff is always fun! I hope you enjoy this little portal into my daily life.

Thomas the Train!

So happy to be there

The girls had a great discussion about Thomas and his awesomeness

The wonderful Mr. Bill

All aboard!

Ella just can't wait for Thomas to start chugging down the track

Shepherd looks pretty happy too

Skyler loves to see everything passing by

At the end they got to see Sir Topham Hatt

and jump a little

go inside the petting zoo

and play a round of golf

We headed to the train station for our next ride

We got to go through a long tunnel

and watch them spin the engine on a train table

I think the girls had the most wonderful day learning the joy of riding a train

and we all did too!

Many, many thanks to Monty for our fun filled day! We love you!!
