The kids love their cousins. I love photographing the cousins. I also love doing the wardrobe for the photoshoots (I made the tie shirts and ruffle pants. Girls shirts are Matilda Jane - love!) So here goes!
Leavin' on a jet plane! That's right! Today we flew to San Antonio to visit Eric's sister and her family. We haven't flown since Emmett was 6 months old, so to us, this was a big endeavor!
Do you think we brought enough luggage?
When we landed in TX it was almost midnight. We could not have asked for better behavior from the kiddos. All 3 were sound asleep when we landed.
We collected our gazillion bags of luggage while the children remained sleeping.
We loaded onto the rental car shuttle, unloaded off the rental car shuttle and picked up our rental car all while the kids were sound asleep.
The kids did not wake until we put them in their car seats. Praise the Lord for safe and peaceful travels.
On a separate note, we flew Southwest. What a great airline! Leather seats, 2 free bags a car seat and a stroller per person (child). We got beverages and snacks. Best of all the flight attendants were happy and seemed to be enjoying their job. On our second flight, the attendant was absolutely hilarious - making all sorts of witty comments and playing goofy music from his iPod. Next time we fly, we'd definitely chose Southwest again!
I heard this fabulous speaker at MOPS who was an art teacher before coming a full-time mom. She gave all sorts of fun art related activities to do with the kids. One of these was Oil Pastels. I used my 40% off coupon at Michaels and bought these oil pastels. Only $5 though, so with or without coupon it's not a pricey investment.
Anyway, the kids have fun experimenting with these. As our speaker encouraged, "It's about the process not the finished product!"
