Dinner Time Prayer

Usually Brinley starts saying the prayer for supper whether we are ready or not. Tonight Alex asked if he could say it and Brinley said yes. It went something like this:

Alex: Dear God, thank you for the beautiful weather. Tha...
Brinley: And thank you for the food (saying it like a reminder so he won't forget)
Alex: And thank you for the food
Brinley: and for Mommy and Daddy and Brinley and Brooklyn
Alex: Yes
Brinley: and for Stacy and Scott
Alex: Is there anything else you want to pray for?
Brinley: Pray for my pink cake.
Alex: (giving me a look like what is she talking about) You mean your pink juice.
Brinley: My pink cake.
Alex: And be with Brinley's pink cake. In Jesus name, amen.

On the way home from the babysitter's, Brinley was telling me how she wanted her birthday cake. It is going to be pink with Dora, Swiper, Boots and baloons. Her birthday isn't until September but she has been talking about her birthday since her last one.

Say Awww Brooklyn

Brinley asked if she could finish feeding Brooklyn last night. I was trying to get supper ready and keep Brinley occupied at the same time so I thought sure why not. Brooklyn didn't seem very interested in her peas anymore anyway. I'll just have to throw Brooklyn in the tub after supper. I was surprised when she finished the rest of her peas for Brinley with very little mess. Both girls were occupied while I finished dinner. Maybe I should have Brinley feed her more often.
Say awwww Brooklyn.

Mother's Day

We spent Mother's Day in Missouri with my Grandma. It was fun introducing her to Brooklyn for the first time and just spending time with her. I wish we could go visit her more often.

Playing outside. She loved chasing the birds.

What can $1 Buy

I actually got this for $0.84! I'm still enjoying the couponing. I just wish my girls were older so they could help me cut the coupons. I'm very behind on that and so my coupons are very unorganized right now. But it is worth getting this stuff for basically free! The Scrubbing Bubbles is a product that I'm trying because I had a coupon. I think I am going to really like it (which is good because I stalked up on it). You just spray your shower after the last shower of the day and your done. It works excellent on soap scum. I also got a catalina for $3 off my next purchase!
