On Saturday morning, we stopped by Home Depot for the kids' workshop. Cheese-face Asher was so pumped to be the official holder of the paintbrushes.
And though his face may deceive you, Reed always has a good time at these workshops.
My camera battery died, but let it be known that Reed and Ryan built a fantastic Valentines day box, and that his cousin Cole did, too. Strangely, when you leave your camera in the car overnight and the weather is really cold, the battery drains. Good to know.
Grandma, Grandpa, Kayla, and Mandi joined us late Saturday night.And left early Saturday afternoon. It was quite a quick trip for them.
Maliya was so good for the blessing--she didn't cry at all. Surprisingly, my boys didn't either.
And how sweet is she in her first white dress? This was Lynnie's (her mom's) blessing dress when she was a baby, too.
After the blessing, we had lunch at Lynnie and Nick's house. When Grandma wasn't looking, Asher totally stole her cookie off her plate and ate it before anyone noticed. We found incriminating powdered sugar all over his person, though, so we knew what went down. Sneaky.
I was the "photographer" (ha) for the day so we could get a few shots of Maliya. I made Reed pose so I could set up the camera with the lighting. This was the pose he deemed appropriate:
And this is the pose Ryan deemed appropriate:
And finally, to wrap up the most random of all random posts, here are a cute pair of shoes I scored at Goodwill in Colorado for $4. Sweet!
